OOPS,forgot to say, I use the DirecTV application on the ipad for most of the shows, since the dtv app supports closed caption, HBO GO no.

What's wrong with it? Grab your remote and hit 1501. Done.


Once on 1501, please show how easy it would be to get to Sopranos S5:E04.

I thought the reason for waiting so long was because OD was getting revamped. Doesn't look any different....yet....

Still seeing duplicate titles...Terminator 2 HD, X-Men:First Class for example.

Select the category for series, select The Sopranos, and then choose your episode.

Any easier and a DirecTV employee would be there to push the buttons on the remote personally.

Should be grouped by season. But of course, you'd argue about that too.

Seriously? Your complaint is that there isn't an additional sub-menu?

It'll be interesting to see how this is marketed. Is anyone aware of any other provider getting as much HBO content as this?

I was scanning through the DirecTV site. I'm finding it difficult to navigate there as well. The idea of cover art and abreviated names makes it an unpleasant experience. When going into the HBO Series category, many items have no art. It would be nice to have a toggle allowing titles only.

Navigation inside 1501 is slow and cumbersome. Not bad when a handful of shows but gets progressively worse when the list lengthens.

And what about when you just want to peruse the offerings. Not knowing exactly what you want?

That launched this morning. Similar to the HBO Go content that has all of the past series like Sopranos, etc available on your PC, tablet, or phone, now you an get those past episodes through your set top box via On Demand for both HBO and Cinemax.


Sex and the City is the one minor outlier because that show has some syndication rights on television that do not allow for all of the past episodes, though many are there.

Enjoy


Very nice. Thanks DirecTV.

Still not at home to try it on my ipad, is it available to Everywhere too ?

Thanks!


It looks like it. Id have to do a more extensive compare but the iPad HBO offerings look a lot bigger than they used to be.

Fantastic news! Thanks SatRacer and Directv.

Will this new expanded On Demand content include some of the 3D movies that other providers carry?

Big difference between this and an HD channel without anything in HD.

It stinks that everything still has to be downloaded via the internet. Data caps keep me from downloading too much HD content.

FIOS 150/65

Comcast in my area claims there is a monthly cap of 250GB. I more than double that each and every month. I am at 542GB so far this month. They do nothing about it. It's meaningless here.

Additional improvements will be made including subfolders and such in future release(s).

I believe D* was the first to launch this nationwide. DISH has started to deploy but not done yet is my understanding. Others have done so in one market or another.
