Re: HBO GO not available from Comcast?

Actually, according to a Comcast VP, Samsung Smart TVs will soon have access to HBO Go (in early 2013). No word on Ruku, though...

Nice find but I'll believe it when I see it Mulder. The truth is out there...

HBO GO does not work for me over the internet. It will only stream at the lowest resolution, and then it still pauses for buffering every few seconds. The resolution was so low I could not read the opening credits to shows, and those are in big print.

I contacted HBO and they want me to do hours of trouble-shooting before they will even look at their system. Just wish I could get cheaper HBO for not being able to use HBO GO.

FYI - Just saw this article today about Comcast preparing to launch an Xfinity TV application for Samsung Smart TVs:

awesome news, thanks for the link Telco! I already have had HBO GO on Xbox 360 but I always found it weird that I didn't have an app for it on my Samsung TV (or any other device for that matter like Ps3 or Apple TV) However I must say that the quality on the 360 isn't very crisp, I still prefer to just watch it through my DVR but if i'm mobile, it isn't too bad on the iPad.

EDIT- I guess I read the article wrong and it just looks like they are gonna be implementing an xfinity app (like the one for 360) but for flash based samsung tvs (that are not out yet) but either way, pretty cool.

From this article »www.techofthehub.com/2012/02/hbo···tvs.html it sounds like some Samsung Smart TV models from 2010 and later already have Flash-enabled browsers that can handle it.

There is a listing of Samsung TV models on their website that are supposed to be compatible with the HBO GO app: »www.samsung.com/us/appstore/app/···mpatible

Looks like the launch of the Xfinity TV app for Samsung Smart TVs continues to be delayed:
