I have been volleying HBO subscriptions for months now since the HBONOW
app has disappeared off one of our TV's, although the HBOGO
app is still there, in the middle of me subscribing to HBO before Christmas with a Gift Card. I literally checked and as I was subscribing the app was pulled. So I got a 4K FireStick on major sale a couple weeks ago and that will replace the missing apps. The TV is great, even tried several others over Christmas and none were as good as this 2015 model. COSTCO has been incredible about letting me play.
But just as it's time to renew the subscription through Amazon, I am getting offers directly from HBO that we tossed for Amazons Channel last Fall. AND since I have confirmed that HBOMAX
will only be available as a direct add-on after it's released or if you have HBO/HBONOW
directly from HBO or AT&T/DTV/the owners, et al. Not through any other provider. And they are not as of right now, combining Cinemax as earlier reported. But since DISH and HBO are still spatting, it's blocked on the Hoppers, even through Prime. DISH added the Prime and Netflix apps to the boxes and we have two Hopper3's which would make it so nice and easier for Grandma. But no. So since we couldn't decide on a TV for her for Christmas or Valentines Day, she's getting HBONOW
, CBS All Access and Disney+ for my birthday today. She's a Rocket Scientist and loves Picard and all the Star Treks and Wars. Oh and "The New HBO Dragon Show". . .
