I have HBO GO on the computer and on my iPad. I really want it on Roku, too. Any chance of that???

Please explain why I can get HBO Go on my Android or Apple devices but NOT on the ROKU. Verizon FIOS offers it, along with almost every cable provider in the country except one of the biggest - Comcast/Xfinity. Please consider being added as a cable provider to the Roku list so we can enjoy HBO on every TV we own. It is an inconvenience to attach the Kindle to the TV.
I sent my complaint in.. everyone needs to take a minute and do this

I sent my "complaint" in a year ago.....I switched back to Dish.
I don't know why comcast wont allow HBO GO access on Roku, it's avaliable on WOW, ATT, and several sat. providers, you can also get it through X-Box live, but the only way to go through Roku is to buy a subscription of Play On, which has it's own problems.
Every time ive tried to ask Comcost support why its not avaliable they try to say its up to Roku and HBO, Comcast has nothing to do with it. Thats usually after I explain what Roku is??
The bottom line is you can get HBO GO on Roku, but you have to go through Play On.

Please post their response. Thanks!
Challenge is, I don't think they particularly care about those customers defecting either...
A sickening stream of corporate lies again...
I assure you I will do everything I can to resolve all your issues.
I guess "everything we can" does not include flipping a switch.
It is our goal to ensure that every customer is satisfied with our service,
Ah, NO...apparently, it is NOT, or you would flip the switch.
there are situations in which we are unable to achieve that goal (every customer satisfied).
But this isn't one of them, as anyone is able to flip a switch.
Our engineers and programmers are working diligently to make our service more compatible
Obviously a lie, unless their engineers don't know how to flip a switch, and/or, Comcast hires PITIFUL engineers, as other cable TV provider's engineers enabled Roku in VERY short order.
My reply....lies lies lies...

When traveling I could watch comcast programs on my hotel TV instead of my laptop. Need access from ROKU pronto
Instead of using the computer when I'm traveling in a motel with internet, I could use roku and login into comcast and see the programs on the the TV instead of my laptop
