I am a comcast subscriber and would love for the xfinity ap and hbogo on my streaming roku player. It has the hbogo ap and all the cable providers do this for their customers. I would like comcast to subscribe to the roku hbogo ap as well.

comcast Joe that is nice but I a not purchasing or own an xbox 360. I have internet and tv services provided by comcast. I would rather have the hbogo on my roku where other aps are and where other cable provides are offering to their customers.

There appears to be more content available on HBOGO than On-Demand.

I just tried to get HBOGO Channel and my Roku with my Xfinity HBO Subscription and it does not appear to be available for Xfinity Subscribers.  What gives??

Why does Comcast not allow HBOGO on Roku?  It allows it on mobile devices and iPads - so why not on the Roku streaming player.  Virtually every other provider allows HBOGO.  Ridiculous.  Does anyone know if and when it will be available?  Thank you.

I posted this yesterday but it has mysteriously disappeared!! I'm just wondering if anyone knows if and when Comcast will allow HBOGO on Roku.  They allow it on mobile devices, iPads., etc so I don't understand why they won't allow it to stream on Roku.  Thanks for any info.

Yes, I would like to know the same thing! Why no ROKU. I see XBox is a choice for set up on HBO GO with Xfinity, but no ROKU! Not very competitive of Comcast!

"HBO Go availability on Roku and Samsung TVs are business decisions and deal with business terms that have not yet been agreed to between the parties."

I would guess that means HBO wants more money and Comcast doesn't want to pay.

That's a negative sir! HBO dies not want money. The hbogo app is already included. No more fees to comcast or subscribers. It's about limiting access do customers have to rent boxes. Funny comcast has no issue presenting Samsung TVs in all if their ads but don't actually support using the TVs.

As far as I can tell, you can. Xfinity is a provider option for login in the HBOgo app.

Dear Xfinity or Comcast:

 

I'm a long-time customer & requesting that HBOGo be made available for the Roku 3 device.

 

THANKS!
