HBO GO issues/Web Browser

Question

I have a brand new LG Smart TV. I cannot find HBO in the LG App menus to be able to add it to my list. Then when I try to access via the LG Browser, it tells me that I am unable to run the content as the browser needs to be updated. Can somebody tell me how I can access HBO Go via my new Smart TV? I have the LG - 55" Class - LED - Nano 8 Series - 2160p - Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR, Model 55SM8600PUA. Thank you

Unfortunately, this has been a recurring topic where others, including myself, have complained about the lack of an HBO viewing app with no helpful response from LG.  Several others have different ideas about why an HBO app isn't offered, but it would be nice if LG would give a response.  There are a number of other posts about this issue for which you may search and some have offered alternative methods to try and watch HBO, none of which seemed like what I wanted (I just want to fire up the app and watch HBO, just like Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Showtime).  Welcome to the unhappy customer club.

      According to the developer site, the Web Engine powering the Apps and I assume the Web Browser on WebOS is built on version 53 of Chromium (for 2018-2019 models) or Chromium 68 (for 2020 models). Version 53 is from 2016, and 68 is from 2018. The current version is 85.
      The latest version of JavaScript used  by modern websites (ES7) is only supported in version 68 and above, and there has been some evidence that although WebOS is using version 53 of Chromium the browser is not fully compatible with the previous JavaScript version (ES6).
      The result is that by keeping the WebOS browsers locked in older Chromium bases users will find more websites become unusable on our Smart TVs as old sites are upgraded to new versions and new sites come out. This is not an issue for Android based Smart TVs where users can install current web browsers of their choice.
      LG is supposed to be a leader in technology- I have been incredibly pleased with my LG phones and other appliances but am extremely disappointed with the proprietary WebOS browser on LG Smart TVs. IN 2020 it is unacceptable thar such a fundamental function of a smart device (web browsing) is so out of date.

      The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?
