Pretty much the worst interface out of any other streaming service. Suggestions: center play/pause button, add next button for tv shows to play the next episode, show season number in the title that’s being played, make episodes easily accessible, add skip title sequence option, and fix the issue of closing out of minimized screen when episode ends and play next episode instead. It’s really weird that the app is so terrible.... Come on, it’s 2020, streaming services are part of everyday life, I’m sure there is plenty of research about user experience of such apps, app development is pretty advanced. Being a multi billion dollars company, how did you end up rolling out such crappy app....you really dropped the ball. It’s been over a month now and no significant updates to fix this crap.

Eh. It’s very hard to navigate. Before the app change, I had HBO Now and it was super easy to find the shows that I wanted to watch. Now, it seems I have to spend 30 minutes looking for my show, which is annoying and makes me close the app and go somewhere else. It needs to be better organized. I get having the other networks...but I feel all the movies and shows are grouped into one section. I personally would like to see it organized by individual networks. It can be better.

Started from the bottom.
This app was SO BAD when it launched. I worked with AT&T for 5 years and all I could think “thanks AT&T” but since it’s launch the app has improved a lot! My favorite part is background functionality. I love that I can play the audio of a movie or show in the background. I listen to fresh prince in the car and the app works better than Spotify as a standalone audio app even though it’s meant for video. This has been my best hbo experience yet.
With HBO NOW you can watch big premieres as they air—plus every episode of any HBO series such as Game of Thrones, His Dark Materials, Watchmen and so much more.
