Why is it I can't watch HBO GO on my Roku with Directv service??
Am I missing something?
Not allowed. Not sure if it's an HBO thing or a DIRECTV thing, but it's been anticipated for for a long time. Many threads about it if you search.
Well that sucks, I doubt its a HBO thing, since the list of providers that do support it is extremely large.
Every Provider in my area supports these. Except Directv.
It's no longer needed anyway. All of the same HBO Go content is available through On Demand now.
Maybe one has a Roku on a TV w/o DIRECTV service? Otherwise you are correct, it's a bit superfluous since it's all on On Demand.
On demand doesn't work too good on D12s, or H25's or rooms that don't need Directv receivers, so I guess I should spend another $200-$400 then right on HR24's or 2 C'31s. Cause that what Directv wants to force people to do I guess.
I pay for HBO the same as everyone else.
Yea and takes an hour if not more with a 15MBPS internet service to download Directv's So called "ON Demand"
Thanks guys though for the info.
Just not happy about the answer.
No it doesn't. You can start watching before it downloads completely...
You are paying for HBO and they are delivering you HBO to your D* receivers, correct? What am I missing?
I'm not getting into a fanboy fight over Directv and roku.
Directv doesn't offer the option on the number one home streaming device.
Sounds like you have you have some issues with your home network if it is taking you that long with those speeds. It shouldn't.
They are not providing me HBO GO on on RoKu.
In other words I'm not getting 100% of HBO's benifits.
I would gladly pay Time Warner directly if I could .
Of course they don't. Why? It a highly popular device among cord cutters. Thats why. They also have no need to, since they offer the same content via On Demand.
My home network is just fine!
I have no issue streaming anything in my house.
If you have an XBox360, you can stream HBOGO from Directv through it.
Yeah, I don't get it either...
Thats fine, Knowing that now, I just know what I will and won't do.
You are paying to subscribe to what DirecTV offers. Nothing more. Nothing less. They don't allow for authentication via that device. You aren't paying for authentication on that device. You are only paying for the HBO features and content that DirecTV and HBO Inc./Time Warner have an agreement for.
Thanks, I wonder if my PS3 can?
Again , What ever.
I just sent Directv an Email anyway.
