    Can't quite sign in. It sends me to Directv to log in and then back to HBO GO to enter a name and E-Mail address and zip code, then when I click "create" it says your session has timed out please log in again.

    As far as I know, you must have a DIRECTV.com account registration in order to have access to HBO GO or MAX GO. I'm not aware of any other way to gain access via DIRECTV.

    Sorry, I wasn't clearer with my question. The question is once you register on the HBO and Max Go sites will there be a way so that you don't need to provide your DIRECTV logon information for any future access? I can see where a family might want to let their kids have access to the service but don't want to give the kids the logon access to their DIRECTV account.

    At some point, that flexibility with "sub accounts" is likely, but not for awhile. Unsure on timelines.

    Damn, this doesn't work on my Boxee Box. I get all the way to the window where I log into Directv, I enter my info and the dialog box disappears, the login button greys... but it never logs me in, it just reverts right back to not being logged in.


    Grr...

    Can I use my SONY Blu-Ray DVD player to access HBO GO? It currently allows me access to YouTube and other SONY sites so perhaps HBO?

    A day later, and the video quality is MUCH better. Perhaps my ISP was flakey yesterday, but I'm thoroughly enjoying watching "Band of Brothers" in the background while I work! Thanks, HBO/DirecTV!

    Cool. This makes the higher cost of HBO a little more easier to justify these days. Still not going to get Cinemax, just not worth it for what's offered vs. the monthly price, even with MaxGo.

    I find that the video is very jumpy...almost unwatchable. Also, is there any way to save shows to view later when wi-fi is unavailable, or can these be stored on and iPod?
