    One solution that fixes a load of problems is to completely switch the iPad off rather than putting it to sleep, as most people normally do. Press and hold the Power button until the slider control appears, accept the offer to switch off, wait until the iPad powers down and then press Power again until the white Apple logo appears. It then takes a few seconds to power up. Even Apple recommend that you do this about once a week.

    I am having the same problem

    I am having the same problem. I tried reseting the iPad before, uninstalling it and reinstalling it as well. Also, my Internet connection is around 9-10 mbps.

    Ah. It is because I am in British Columbia right now on vacation. I will have to try it out when I am back.

    I am having the same problem on my iPad as well as iPhone with HBO GO. It says I need an internet connection when I am active on wifi. Help is appreciated. Yes I have power cycled the devices.

    Problem with HBO GO!!!

    I downloaded the HBO GO app on both my iPad and iPhone. Went online with my PC and set up the account. Works great on iPhone, but not on iPad. Cleared the cache and did other stuff, but still won't work on iPad. Does anyone have any ideas as to why it works fine on iPhone, but not on iPad?

    Problem with HBO GO.

    Tried powering it off. Tried deleting and reloading the app. Got it to actually work for about 5 minutes. Signed out and later tried to sign in again. Same problem. Tried everything again but could not get it to work.

    I found a solution that works for me. It's because i live outside the US, therefore its not the internet that is the problem but a bad choice of words from HBO. U need to use a VPN connection to get a US based IP. Thats when it will open up!!
