HBOfor Android



Content galore

Watching series online is an amazing service, delivering you your favorite shows at any time. And with mobile devices being so powerful, it’s no surprise to find this application available for your phones.

High-quality viewing

On HBO you can watch your favorite TV series such as Game of Thrones, West World, and Vikings.

HBO is a well-known channel that offers many fan-favorite series such as Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, The Wire, and True Detective. Watching these on your mobile device is one of the best ways to stay up to date on series or start watching a new one.

There is a huge variety of shows available for you to watch, and you get to pick shows you like in any order. One of the most famous shows available is Game of Thrones. But, for all the selections available the application is region-specific, limiting who can see certain episodes.

Videos are streamed in HD quality, fully immersing you in the show you’re watching. But the high-quality streaming can often lead to the HBO application having a lengthy buffering time. Combining this with the unintuitive design, the application is irritating to use.

Using this application is cheaper than paying for the actual TV channel. Plus by using the application, you get to choose what you want to watch instead of sticking to a TV schedule. If you close the application, however, the last show you watched isn’t readily available for you to continue next time you launch the app. You may be getting the channel for cheaper than viewing on your television, but it’s a hard task using HBO on your Android.

Where can you run this program?

HBO is available for Android 7.0 and later, as well as most IOS devices.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Netflix is a great option and works far better than HBO does. It probably won’t have every series you enjoy, but new ones get constantly added. The Netflix app also has better functionality and buffering times.

Our take

HBO is a great way to bring channels to mobile devices, but it’s poorly implemented and isn’t the best series viewing application available.

Should you download it?

No. The app is hard to use and not worth spending any money on. If you like HBO, you should watch it on another platform.
