I just don't understand the reasoning behind the fact that I can authenticate HBO GO with my iPad and my PC browser, but not the Roku...

 

Nor do I know the reason(s), but it is the way it is. Not a fine answer, sorry, but that's all there is for now.

For the D* subscriber and Roku user who wants to view HBOGO, I can suggest PlayOn (www.playon.tv).  It's a media server that will act as an intermediary between HBOGGO (and Hulu and others) and stream it to your Roku (PlayOn will show up as a Roku channel).  While I don't subscribe to HBO and thus can't speak to HBOGO specifically, I do have a Roku HD and a Roku 3 and can state from 1st hand experience that PlayOn streaming Hulu and other sources works well.  HBOGO is stated as supported by PlayOn.

 

Regarding the other discussion re: number of TVs with internet-only vs. D* device attached - we have 4 TVs, 2 are currently Roku only, soon to be 3.  We will keep 1 DirecTV DVR solely for live sports.  This is purely a cost decision, we are otherwise happy with the D* service.

 

I have no interest in PlayOn other than I am a satisfied user.

My top 5 wishlist: 1) Free MRV HR to HR 2) Fix Channels I Receive so that it is accurate 3) > 50 SeriesLink 4) Usage of both internal and external drives concurrently 5) Support for other video providers as DoD (i.e. Hulu, CBS)

Does anyone know if HBOGo is authorized on ChromeCast for DirecTV subs? I know it's not available for Roku users sadly.

 

Any info is greatly appreciated
