(Does not work with) ...Comcast.

Oh well, Netflix works as does my Slingbox.

Can't speak to whether it works on the iPad, but it works quite well on my laptop via my Comcast subscription to HBO. There may be a couple of factors at work here.

First, you must have a subscription to HBO through your cable provider, as noted above. It's not a "free" service. Second, I'm not certain that all Comcast subscribers can access premium content (such as HBO) on devices other than their TV's. Here in the Seattle area, Comcast was re-branded as "Xfinity" when it began offering premium programming on wireless devices. If that is not yet a nationwide feature, you may not be able to access HBO or other premium content.

Please don't start your thought in the subject line, that's really annoying!

App works great for me! Watched 5 episodes of Entourage yesterday.

Thanks!

Solution!

I figured out how to sidestep the sound problem with My ipad 2 and the HBO GO app....it required changing my horiz/veritcal slide setting to MUTE....this is under General Settings...Once I set it to mute, I went to the HBO GO app and things worked GREAT.

I have the HBO Go app and I love it, got caught up on the first season of Eastbound & Down.. Only downside is that the video signal doesn't work with AirPlay on the Apple TV, so I couldn't throw the video from the app via the iPad to my television.. I figure it's a licensing thing, but it sends the audio signal perfectly..

In any event, the app is pretty good, and if you're an HBO lover, there is tons of content and HBO Original Series available..

Now we just need that dang video to work via AirPlay..

No sound

I also cannot hear any sound on the Ipad original version for the HBO G0. I have not found any solutions as of yet

Solved. Despite sound being on for all other programs, mute was on in the general settings. These are the ones that pop up when you double tap the program button.

My only problem is that it plays for a few mins then pauses for a few mins then plays.... On and on. Anyone else have that?

Sounds like that may be an issue with your network speed.. Or, your internet speed..

video stalling on hbogo

Yes, and it's incredibly annoying. The only thing I can think of is that it's optimized for an Ipad 2 with 3g connectivity rather than a mere wifi-only Ipad 2 (like mine). I'm hoping there's a fix in the works for it, I'd really love to watch all those shows but it's nearly impossible to enjoy them when the video pauses every 3-4 minutes and you're forced to hit the 30 second rewind button to get it going again. Took me 40 minutes to watch a 27 minute episode of "Extras". Bleh.
