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.


Fix the issues with your home network and enjoy all the HBO On Demand content.

You don't need the Roku to get all the HBO content if you have DirecTV.

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

No you guys ! I would switch just so I wouldn't have to listen to you 2 any more.

Why don't you back to page one and start there.

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.

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.


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.
