I just got Roku 3 for Christmas and one reason is that it offered access to HBO Go. However, to my dismay, I found that it wasn't available thru COMCAST on my Roku. I'm able to get it on my Apple computer and ipad but not thru Comcast on my tv using Roku. I recently considered switching to FIOS and didn't because of the aggravation and the prices were similiar. However, this would be a strong incentive to switching. My daughter, who has FIOS in Richmond, just watched Don Jon which was not out on DVD yet. It cost $14.95 which is less than what a movie for two would cost at the theaters. I also don't see this availability on Comcast. I pay over $1800 a year for cable (a little over $150 a month) including HBO. I think I should have a right to access HBO Go thru Comcast on Roku for the amount I am paying. If not, I think it is obvious that Comcast is putting profits far ahead of satisfying their customers. Why is this available on Cox but not Comcast, the largest cable operator in the country?
