HBOGo not available on the Roku if your an Xfinity customer is only 1 thing that is not up to par for their service. I would still complain, because if they offered everything on HBOGo through their own on-demand it would completely suck, because you have to watch on-demand through your cable box, PC or X-box. Have you actually tried to take advantage of Xfinity's slogan- 'Any Screen, Anytime, Any Where' using the Xfinity TV Player app for mobile devices? It's a ruse to lure in customers. It's total BS!!!!! Let's start with "Anywhere" You have your iPad or favorite tablet connected using 4G cellular, guess what? You aren't watching anything, because the app requires that you are connected wifi. I guess Xfinity thinks wifi is everywhere. Even their Xfinity WiFi hotspots they promote don't exist. That CableWiFi project(http://www.cablewifi.com/)..what a joke if your an Xfinity customer. You can't sign-in to the partner hotspots. To get around the WiFi requirement you'll need a 4G mifi hotspot. Connect your mobile device to your mifi wireless and you are now connected "wifi". But why should I have to pay for another device on my wireless account. Here's why being able to connect over 4G cellular is important... Our family likes to travel, hotel wifi can suck so bad that your connection is about as good as a 56k modem, in other words useless. Connect over cellular and problem solved. Traveling by car or RV with the family... wanna watch something, not happening without a mifi. Anyscreen -- Same scenario, traveling in your RV or car and want to watch something, sure as long as someone holds the iPad so everyone can see. If you want to connect your mobile device into your vehicle's video system, good luck. You get this total BS message--"We're sorry. Because of security protocols specified by our Network partners, you can enjoy this great video on your mobile device only." Comcast must negotiate the sh**tiest contracts ever with their Network providers. Anytime-- so long as those times are when reliable wifi is available and you can be in a comfortable position to watch it on the mobile device's screen. Amazing that comcast builds all these restrictions in yet other providers are incorporating Slingbox for mobile availibility for live and VOD programming. Time Warner offers a free channel on the Roku that turns it into a full HD cablebox. The channel only works when connected to a cable modem on your TWC account, but that beats $8/month for each additional cablebox. HBOGo mobile app is just that, a truly mobile app. It works on your phone or tablet. It works if you're connected WiFi or through cellular 4G. Want to connect your mobile device into your vehicle's video system or to an external display, go for it. Whether the device outputs through Apple TV, HDMI, component, or composite it works. Thank you HBO for a great app that keeps your content separate from Comcast/Xfinity's incompentent mobile app.
