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.

The real reason you are not going to see HBO subs via Directv on Roku is because Larry Roku, inventor of the Roku box is a Directv hater. He had been a sub since 1995 and Directv wouldnt give him a free upgrade as a long time premier customer he vowed to get Directv back. So when he invented his Roku streaming box he vowed that HBO would not be available to Directv subs. ;)

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.


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...

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*

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.
