This guy got it. Thanks
Only to the Guilty!
I already sent the mods a message, this thread is in their hands now.
Again Thanks for the guys who helped, and no thanks to the guys that always have a bag of excuses for any question or request.
You could've avoided this whole situation if you would've researched Roku & HBOGo.
You said you did, but obviously didn't look that hard: "HBO GO is only available through participating television providers. On Roku Streaming Player devices, the following television providers offer HBO GO free as part of your HBO subscription: AT&T U-Verse TV, Atlantic Broadband, BendBroadband, Blue Ridge Communications, Bright House, Cable ONE, CenturyLink Prism, Charter, Cox, DISH, EPB Fiber Optics, Grande Communications, Hawaiian Telcom, HTC Digital Cable, Insight Communications, Massillon Cable/CPI, Mediacom, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, RCN, Suddenlink, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS and WOW!."
Make sure that tin foil hat fits snug...
Guess what? All the ones in bold are offered here.
I know them 2 Slimlines slapped in front of your face fit good and snug!
And where in your research did you see that D* offers HBOGo on Roku?
Again, went to walmart, saw a sale, looked at the back, saw HBO GO on the box, Should have been a no brainer.
How was I to know Directv were going to be such greedy snakes.
Since Directv has commercials all the Time about HBO GO and I have an HBO subscription. It should have been cut and dry.
Now Epix it says right on the box check with your service provider.
Well since Directv doesn't carry Epix at All, I wouldn't have expected EPIX to work on a Roku having Directv service.
But since Directv does Carry HBO, well it would make sence.
By saying DTV Fanboy, I was being "nice". If the shoe fits.......
Anything I said would be invalidated by the DTV crowd here since my opinion about ROKU and HBO GO is opposite of theirs. You can not invalidate the truth..
If you would've included my whole post, I actually said that HBOGo should be on Roku.
Once again being selective & ignoring the info that doesn't prove your point...
From the Roku website: "...with your HBO subscription through participating TV providers".
It baffles me that up until 25 hours ago you had never heard of the HBOGo-Roku issue with D*
Why would I? Where's all the threads?
I type into the search Roku and guess what, this is the only thread I see.
You think this would have stopped me from buying them? Nope it wouldn't have.
But this issue has now stopped me from ever upgrading my receivers.
Cause once I feel like Directv has me on limits, I start to look a round.
By no means am I a Hopper fan, But if Directv wants to start rasing rates based on RSN's, won't allow me to use the streaming devices of my choice. Well there are other options out there.
There was a 27 page thread titled "DIRECTV Not Providing HBOGo On Roku"
I entered "directv Roku" in the search
No but at least you wouldn't have wrongfully assumed it was available on Roku.
I'll remember that the next time I buy the most poplular piece of equipment again while having Directv as a provider.
I remember when Dish and Charlie used to be sneaky, guess the tables have turned.
Not in my search.
And who really cares, I got my answer in about 5 minutes yesterday. And again for the 10,000 th time it wasn't a deciding factor in buying rokus.
So stop trying to make bogus points.
Why would I research Directv and Roku, when that wasn't even a deciding factor? Ever hear of Hulu, How about Netfix?,, How about Red Box Beta.
The fact that Directv doesn't offer Roku for their HBO go , is just a negative on Directv, not roku.
I switch providers, problem solved. Not end of the world!
Again problem is already solved , thanks to a Dishnetwork subscriber.
So you can stop kissing Directvs a$$ now!
