Comcast, DirecTV Say No-Go To HBO On Roku [Multichannel News]
HBO Go allows HBO subscribers to view 1,400 HBO movies and original programming episodes, online or through a connected box or TV. The customer has to enter his or her provider authentication information to access the HBO programming.
HBO Go will still be available over the web and potentially over other devices or connected TVs for customers of these two providers, but it will not be available on Roku. Comcast issued a statement that they would "continue to work with our partners to deliver even more choices to our customers in more places." DirecTV's statement said, "We don't have any plans to support Roku at this time."
HBO Go only recently was made available on Roku. It has also been made available on Xbox 360, as well as through apps for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices.
