Re: HBO Go is nice for content, but quality is not as good.

they could let you choose what quality you use. Some of us don't have caps and will never have caps.

I doubt it. Because it's not about your available bandwidth or caps, it's about their available bandwidth and how much they pay for it.

They probably want to keep a consistent quality level and using ABR to downgrade the quality when bandwidth is lower on the customer end, and keeping their bandwidth costs down.
