LG adds HBO Go to smart TVs

 

LG announced the addition of the HBO Go on-demand TV service to its smart TVs. HBO Go is available on LG TV's going back to 2012 models. LG said it's the first manufacturer to add HBO Go to its system. The HBO Go comes standard on the Premium Content menu, which is part of the webOS interface used on the most recent LG TVs. Users can also cast content from a smartphone or tablet to the LG TV.

Has anybody actually got this feature?  I can't find it in the app store.  Using 60LB6300, firmware 04.40.29 (updated 3 days ago) in the USA.

I just bought and setup a LG 43UF7600.  I installed the latest WebOS 2.0 and HBO Go on-demand TV service is still NOT listed in the Premium Content menu.  Where can I find and install this app?

Have an LG55uf8500 in southamerica (Peru) and still dont have HBOGO but changing location on the tv to Poland and Croatia i managed to install the apps from the Premium Apps and the only way to use them on my original location is using another DNS code in my network options, hope soon enough an app for south america arrives but the only new app this days is GooglePlay... like Bart simpsons says  BOOOOORINNGGG...!

I purchased a 65UF8500 back in April (or thereabouts), and have just recently tried to get HBO Go on there, to no avail.  It's not in the LG Store, I tried going through the web to do it, again unsuccessfully, and I've called LG twice about this, the first time the lady wasn't sure what I was talking about, the second time the guy confirmed that there's no way to get it on an LG smart TV, and that there's never been a way...despite the press announcements made in December of 2014 that it was now available for all LG smart TV going back to 2012 models.  I don't know if LG and HBO had a falling out, or if they decided to make it so TV's manufactured after the press release didn't have the feature, or what, but I'm a little pissed that my Samsung which cost 2/3 what my LG cost was able to get it set up in under three minutes.

 

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

When will we get this app? HBO GO requires flash on the web. Is this the stumbling block for building the app??

Just got a new LG OLED TV and it is sweet except for the lack of HBO. C'mon guys work this out. What good is a Smart TV if you don't have the most popular shows?! The irony is that GoT shows up on the suggested shows -- but you have to buy the episodes through Prime or Vudu. Fail.

HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Starz should be available through Amazon Video.

Don't see any way to login using existing cable/online subscription though. 

 

 

A monthly subscription for HBO on Amazon Channels is $14.99, similar to the HBO Nowstreaming option. Cinemax costs $9.99 a month.
