By HBO Go's definition the OP was not wrong as he stated "Roku" in his OG post. I feel like making 50 acronyms today if I can, lol. I know he, "The OP", might have said "other" streaming players but we all knew he MEANT Rku... WHOOPS went to far there "Roku". By your definition you are right that there are "other" streaming media players which are covered but do not require "extra" authorization. So we are all right. TGIF party on me! The thread was answered and let's just let it be for now.
mariod, I like you and many of your posts although we don't always agree, I cite "time-shifting" post as evidence of that, but that is what makes this forum fun to come to. I love arguing technology with people I don't know, lol. Man I missed this site when it was down for which felt like a yr!
mariod if you have Comcrap, whoops made my own one up there, I would invite you to please make a post in the Roku and Samsung Smart TV Comcast forum via the links I posted above so those of us with those services can gain access to something that we already pay for. It's sad to say but Comcast isn't going to do anything about ANYTHING unless we basically hold their b@lls to da fire! markofmayhem, mariod, rody_44 and Zoder thanks again and have a great weekend.
