    Have no knowledge beyond common sense saying this wouldn't happen. Logically, if you only get HBO Go as an HBO subscriber, if you're in front of a TV, using an Apple TV, you should also have access to your paid-for HBO channel online (as well as HBO On Demand). Wouldn't want you taking it to another locale, where they don't have HBO, and broadcasting it to their TV without an HBO sub.

    Well, HBO On Demand has only a limited number of programs at any one time - when I checked a couple weeks ago, there were about 6 episodes of The Sopranos (HD and SD versions of both) out of 84 episodes over the run of the series. By contrast, HBO GO has the entire library of episodes (and the same for every other series HBO has done, plus the full month's schedule of movies, miniseries, specials, etc). For me, an Airplay-enabe app would be even better than just the iPad app.

    But I can take my iPad to a house that doesn't have HBO and play a show/movie there with HBO GO, so why would they care if I watch on my 10 inch iPad screen or on that persons 42 inch TV that has an Apple TV connected to it that I can Airplay to from my iPad? I pay for HBO every month and they are going to let me watch it on my computer or iPad/iPhone, so why would they care if I stream it from my iPad to a TV? Again, I can take my iPad to a friends house that doesn't have HBO and watch there, so what's the difference?

    Again, I have no specific knowledge, just using common sense. "What's the difference" between a 10" iPad and a 42" TV connected to surround sound? You're really confused about that?

    And I never said customers wouldn't WANT that feature ... Just that I doubted HBO would supply it.

    HBO GO is available early (i.e., NOW!) on the iPhone/iPod Touch & iPad.

    Android app is failing to fully log me in. Seems to just give me an endless loading image.

    Sign up was relatively quick and easy. Working fine so far.

    Not so good on Android. I try to "sign in" but it takes me to the creation of a new account and I get error messages saying the email address is associated with another account.

    Anyone else having luck with both iPad and Android?

    Update: I had to create a completely new account (and different email) on my Android phone but it does work now.

    Max Go will come at a later date. HBO released the apps late last evening. I streamed about 2 hours last night, had one crash on my iPhone but otherwise was great
