    I had an issue like that yesterday as well. Firefox no problem but IE was having some issues. Tech guys looking at all of that now

    I tested it out in Chrome yesterday and it worked like a champ for me. (I just had to add a few more sites to my NotScripts whitelist.)

    With my desktop, which has a Core i7 920 processor and 12 GB of RAM, I'm running from 6-10% processor usage. With my laptop, which has a Core i7 720 processor and 8 GB of RAM, I'm running from 10-12% processor usage. With either computer, video is streaming smoothly and quality is excellent and streaming in HD, and, as I posted previously, my internet connection is only a 2 megabit per second connection.

    For those for whom streaming is not going well, if the problem is that the stream periodically pauses and resumes only after rebuffering, the cause is likely to be the quality of the internet connection, but, if the problem is stuttering and lack of smooth playback, the likely cause is, again, the computer's processor power or video card.

    When both HBO and MAX are "in play", we need to be sure what "it" refers to.

    Everything should have been resolved this afternoon. Some folks were seeing a "technical difficulties" error message but that has been resolved. Should be good to go.

    I tried HBO Go and Max Go and I can't get it to go past the signup/sign in screen, it keeps freezing up after I put in my D* screen name and password. I'm using Firefox.

    I figured it out, had to set it to allow third party cookies. It's working now. :) They both have more selections than the VOD versions too. :)

    Any plans for versions from other premiums? (Starz Play and Showtime Anytime).
