Didn't buy it for HBO GO? When are you going to get that through your giant Directv head?

Just thought it would have been an added benifit of the box.

But turns out it was just another let down from corp. greed.


Who said you just bought it just for HBOGo? My ass/u/me point was that you assumed it was an option with D*

I bet you would check or have checked to make sure Hulu, Netflix, Redbox Beta, etc work on your device, right?

Bottom line is you are complaining about a situation that you could've avoided by checking first.

And who is kissing anything? I said that D* should add Roku for HBOGo...

Wow you are insaine.

I ASKED
Does Directv support HBO go on Roku?
Answer NO.

I said damn that sucks!

Then you and another chimed in about BS ON Demand.

I didn't ever one Time say I bought these for HBO go.

What would I have a avoided? A minor let down, that you and your friend totally blew out of the water over what was nothing, that you are obsessed with.

Nothing would have been avoided cause your beloved Directv wasn't even ever a factor in my buying these for the 20,000 time.

I know one thing, I'll never ask a question about Directv here again.

Good...because you don't need a Roku for HBO Go. You can thank DirecTV for coming to an agreement with HBO Inc./Time Warner that provider their customers with all of the HBO Go content with superior picture and audio quality through On Demand than you will achieve with any streaming device.

So it's a "minor letdown", yet you alluded to switching providers because of this? <confused>

Never said you could you 2 directv love birds were all over this like an orgy.

And you both sound like complete idiots for turning a simple thread into a whole fight over nothing.

No hate for Roku...I'm all for connected devices. I just check to make sure the content I want is available on the device and don't act surprised when it isn't.

That picture is hilarious!

No. I pay for my own. If you decide not to, that is your choice. It will be exactly that however...your CHOICE. DirecTV provides you with access. Whether or not you choose to take advantage of that is up to you.

Laughable but more predictable propaganda from a DTV Lover (tryin to be nice ;) )

I have never found DTV On demand picture quality to be any better than most other streaming content, Netflix, Amazon etc. The video quality is acceptable but hardly superior especially when compared to Vudu or BlueRay (not a surprise since BR is not internet streaming).... Also Vudu and BR audio (DD) is considerably better than anything DTV has.

Also I have found that video and audio internet streaming quality are better thru the PS3 vs my Roku....

We are talking about HBO Go. Find a streaming version of it they beats both the picture quality and audio quality of HBO On Demand through DirecTV. You won't.
