    Wouldn't it have to be more involved than just logging in with the directv account name and password? If I have four famly members who want to use it, I don't want to give them all the master password for DIRECTV, and also don't want to have to log in for them.

    Or would it be prohibited for multiple logins?

    They'd better start being more careful about their use of the word Blockbuster in their press releases :lol:

    I confirm. Though, after a few buffering issues (even on my 20mbps internet), the picture quality has been dumbed down to something VERY sub-par. It even makes DirecTV SD look good.

    You only use your DIRECTV once, then you setup an HBOGO specific account.

    How'd you get that to work? I created the accoung on HBO and Max, signout and when I try to go back into it its asking for my DIRECTV account info again.

    You're right... I figured when it asked me to pick an account that's why... but guess not.

    Satelliteracer, so will there be a way for logging onto these two services without giving access to our DIRECTV account logon info?

    Worked for me, and I thought the PQ was quite good.

    PQ is very good for streaming here on a 30/2 connection with 2 Netflix HD and HBOGO simultaneously streaming on my network.

    The picture quality, at least this afternoon, is nowhere near as good as it has been for the beta testing period.


    Edit: just now tried another movie, and it was very good...

    Looks great. Hope the other movie channels follow them.

    HD looks great on my end too for both.


    They so need to create a PS3 app (360 too)

    This is cool and all, but needs an ipad/iphone app.

    I also agree the video looks awful. My connection is more then fast enough and tried it on two macs a 2011 MBP with and i7 and a Imac with an i5 so power isnt an issue either.
