I haven't looked into HGOGO. Does DirecTV qualify as a "cable company"?
Yes. Just goto hbogo.com fill out the info, select directv and enjoy.
Van Houten Interview
But, if you're using a Roku device, then the asnwer is NO.
If you want to use Airplay or a cable to send the output from your iPad to your TV, then the answer is also NO.
HBOGO sucks. I've got it but never use it. It's a great idea, but the limitations are to ridiculous to ignore.
Really? Dish Network works for HBO GO on my Roku. I'm surprised DirecTV wouldn't.
It's up to the cable/satellite provider. DirecTV says no HBO GO on set top boxes for their subscribers. I don't understand why they would think it's a good idea to disallow that when their competitors do allow it, but that's what they do.
Edit: But it looks like they do allow it on Xbox 360. So go figure.
I'm making a note to ask to be introduced to her if she's ever on set.
I think Joff knows Tywin leads the armies that will secure his thrown. But then again, Joff believes his word is law and he can do whatever he wants. I think Tyrion is safe because (at least in the books) he's helping with the day to day running of the kingdom which bores Joff.
I think more to the point, Joff THINKS his word is law, but doesn't fully BELIEVE it yet. He would gladly shorten Tyrion and have somebody else less slappy do the boring work, but deep down inside he still believes Mommy or Gramps will spank him.
I also think you're giving him WAY too much credit for thinking things through.
"Did you hold your dagger in my back the whole night?"
Or just watch Black Book instead.

We have HBO-GO thru Comcast, and have no problems. My wife uses it all the time on her iPad to watch Sunday night shows when she's not at home. Or it's not Sunday night.
Sure, it works fine as long as you're happy watching it on the iPad screen. I'm not. I should be able to send that via Airplay to my AppleTV. Failing that, I should be able to use my cable to hook the iPad to the TV. Neither work and it's purely an artificial limitation put on the app by HBO.
Yep. It's DRM and a political battle. HBO can't let it be viewed on a big screen because the the cablecos don't want an alternative.
HBO GO will only install on Android if the device is not rooted.
Yikes! I'm sorry I started this!
Also there's a great article in Rolling Stone this month. Peter Dinklage is the cover.
I've got that sitting on my table at home. Need to read it.
I did read it. People want to steal it because they don't want to pay for it I get it. I have a semi hypocritical possession on this issue because networks put their shows out there for free. Hbo never offers their shows for free.
So people are saying that they should not have to pay to see hbo programming? The money that allows them to create the shows? I will be more than happy to watch commercials via alternative means if network shows as that is how they make the money to make their shows.
I realize people are trying to cut the cord but for anyone who is a serious tv watcher it is at least five years and maybe ten years too soon. For casual watchers much easier. There are way too many dependencies and long term deals for any of this to change in the near term. So for now getting hbo is one of the benefits for having cable or satellite. If you don't want to pay for cable or satellite you don't get hbo.
