I discovered HBO Go yesterday after I subscribed to HBO so I could finally not rely on Netflix in order to watch Veep, The Wire, and Game of Thrones.
Do watch show online? Or do you prefer to watch them on your tv?
No, and no. If it’s good enough and if you’re patient, these things will become accessible on a non-premium station. My husband is a fan of The Sopranos, which he found on A&E. I know I sound cheap, but I can’t justify the added expense.
I have watched clips of shows on line. But I wouldn’t want to watch a whole show on the computer or phone – why would I when I have a nice big HD television?
What’s HBO-Go? I actually prefer to watch on the TV since I can sit in my recliner and relax, rather than sitting in my office chair to watch on my desktop. Watching on the laptop is always difficult when you don’t really have a “lap” to put it in!
HBOgo.com is where you can log in with your cable provider account to watch anything that is on HBO. I like to watch shows on my iPad (ABC.com, hulu.com, netflix.com) while I’m on the treadmill or before I fall asleep because I can hear it better than I can on the tv with the earbuds, and then I don’t disturb other people in the house (or even the same room) with whatever I’m watching. FWIW AT&T had a promo for 3 months free of HBO, so I got it for FREE!
Since we got the Roku player (Bev – it would solve your laptop issue), we watch stuff almost exclusively online via Netflix, Hulu Plus, Epix or Crackle. We don’t subscribe to HBO, so can’t get HBOgo, which is annoying, because I’d like it.
