Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

HBO continues to be a strong premium network with great shows like True Blood and Boardwalk Empire to just name a few. On any given day you will see social media posts, news articles, and people talking about these shows and it really shows just how much of an impact this network has on us. Some of us (and yes I am one of them) cannot get enough of these shows as well as the shows that ended years back that we all love to watch over and over.

Well what's great is that with the HBO Go app we can now watch our favorite shows anywhere and at any time. If you are killing time you can just pull out your smartphone and watch any show. Or maybe you are one of those people who loves to watch movies in bed on your tablet. Simply download this app and you can watch tons of movies and TV shows for free as long as you already have an HBO subscription with your current television provider like Dish, Comcast, or Verizon Fios.

The HBO Go app provides you with a streaming service that can be viewed immediately upon logging in to any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet. You can also create a customized Watchlist so that this app will store your favorite TV shows and movies and you can resume watching them from the spot you left off at any time. This is great for the person on the go.


  • Free
  • Watch favorite TV shows and movies anytime
  • Remembers where you last left off on show or movie


  • Can be a little slow to load at times

Final Verdict

The HBO Go app is great for anyone with a fast-paced life and likes to watch their favorite TV shows and movies on the go and at any time.
