    Of course Comcast is late to the party as usual, that's if they show up at all. No HBO GO on the Tivo Roamio Pro and no HBO Go on the Shield Android TV if you subscribe through Comcast.

    Time Warner is now listed when you select TiVo as your device. Does anyone here have TWC and can confirm that it works?

    I was excited all day to try this out.

    Just got home. But I don't see it, it's the same list as before:

    Gotcha. Thanks.

    Well, hopefully that little glimpse means an official release is due soon.

    No, it is not listed when the device is Tivo. But it was yesterday for a brief period, but when I tried to use it to activate, it took me to the TWC login screen. After logging in it took me back to the hbogo activation page and let me put in the activation code that Hbogo on my TIVO gave me, but it told me my device was not authorized. I tried 4 times with different codes.

    Later last night, it was gone, TWC was no longer listed.

    But here is proof that is was:

    And now gone again, different than when I viewed it earlier.... I had that soon after getting the SKIP mode update, maybe a coincidence...

    NOTE - I am not a TWC subscriber but it asks me to sign in everyday and I see that page before getting signed back in to DISH.

    tampa8's screenshot must not be for TiVo activation, then. His also lists AT&T U-Verse.

    jamesteixeira's screenshot, and the grid currently on hbogo.com/activate, does not.

    Unless both AT&T U-Verse and TWC were added temporarily, mistakenly or otherwise?

    I went to the computer online Go HBO and that sign in page looks like what I saw earlier on TIVO. They must be working on changes as some saw something different yesterday... I would expect UVerse to be added at some point with the merger.

    Defiantly not for TiVo as Xfinity is also listed and last I checked hell hasn't frozen over. :)

    It's back again for TWC and the activation worked! And I was able to actually play a movie!

    It might have been an error, just as the other ineligible services were (temporarily) listed.

    tampa8, where did you get that screenshot from?


    YESSSS!!!!!! Me too! It worked, it really worked! I'm watching HBO GO content right now, on my Roamio!

    Sounds like they messed up (comcast) and had to do over.

    Westfield,...
    Just wondering whether anyone has any additional info as to whether DirecTV is expected to authorize HBO Go for TiVo?

    Yeah since TiVo doesn't work with DirecTV there is really no reason for them to approve TiVo as an authoruzed device.
