    I would also would like to see The Wire and Sopranos. I got in the middle of both series. HBO wants $300.00 for The Sopranos.

    Do I have to subscribe to Cinamax to get GO?

    From the newsrelease:
    You should be able to click on the the HBOGO link and have things work after whatever sign up or signin is appropriate or through the DISHOnline link. You aren't supposed to need to be a Cinemax subscriber if you're an HBO subscriber.

    I think you misinterpreted that. The key word is 'respective.' You need to be a Cinemax sub to use Maxgo.

    I don't carry my satellite dish to work with me so this is very useful on my one hour lunch break.

    I'm confused, do I use my VIP or the Web?

    Just tried this at MAXGO and it said that I wasn't currently a Cinemax subscriber on Dish Network. I'm guessing that the 30-day free thing going on right now doesn't qualify? Oh well -- was worth a shot -- just wanted to try it out.

    Are you kidding me? A novelty? Man, I was sooo very excited to finally have access to this.

    1) I've very bad about scheduling DVR events, as well as cleaning out the DVR. Especially for movies, I rarely bother to peruse the schedule and determine which HBO movies I want to see. And forget Netflix through the mail, again that takes a combo of planning and waiting. No good.

    2) There is a TON of HBO programming that I saw parts of years ago, but never saw the entire series (Deadwood, Six Feet Under, etc...). Plus, I love the Sopranos, so even though I've seen every episdoe, I love being able to re-watch it when I want.

    Stuck out shopping or antiquing with the wife... being able to go sit in the car and watch old epsiodes of 'Entourage' on my iPhone while she's inside doing her thing... awesome!

    You have to authenticate with your dish username and password.

    which browser are you using on the phone? I just tried logging on with my HTC Thunderbolt and I get a page not found after entering in my credentials. Makes me think it sees a smartphone user and disables...

    It works fine on my HTC EVO. Get the HBOGO app from the app store.

    Ah, ok. Since I only have Cinemax and not HBO, I can't log in using the HBO GO app :(

    The reason is simple: I'm subscribed to HBO, but my parents aren't. If I want to visit them at the shore, I can still get HBOGO on my laptop. I love it!

    I still can't get into HBO GO. It doesn't like my password.

    This seems as good a place as any to discuss this. Some carriers allow subaccounts for HBOgo and MAXgo so that two family members maybe watching different shows on HBOgo at the same time on different devices. I just asked in online chat with Dish and was told no subaccounts. Wanted to check and make sure that was true since the CSRs are not always all knowing.

    Thanks
