That Comcast does not support HBO Go on the Roku is a joke. You can use HBO Go already on various platform's, but the same service is not available on another? This is ridiculous. This kind of behaviour should be illegal. As it appears there are no licensing issues involved when Comcast made the decision to not support HBO Go on the Roku (see link to article below): "Furthermore, there’s no contractual reason Comcast or DirecTV users can’t access the Roku app. A person with knowledge of the situation told us there are no amendments needed for those companies to authenticate with one device or another, and the decision to support different devices — or not — is up to the operator" If the following article can be believed Comcast is trying to push its own crappy app to XBox and other settop box like platforms: http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/gigaom/articles/video_hbo_go_for_roku_comcast_directv.html Well, then suddenly it makes sense that you dont' want your subscribers to use a competitor product, because you wouldn't be able to sell yours when it is being released. If the above article is right, then we as Comcast subscribers won't see HBO Go on any device that you can hook up to a TV. Isn't that awesome!?
