HBO has started to add a number of new features to its HBO Go app in the second half of 2017. One of the most prominent additions was the automated binge mode that it added to its iOS and Android apps. Let us find out more about this.
What is the best way of watching HBO content? The reason why I’m asking this question is simply due to the fact that there are multiple ways of enjoying HBO content. But, in my opinion, HBO Go is the best platform for streaming HBO content. However, in order to access HBO Go, you need to have a cable subscription, as this is a service that only comes along with cable subscription.
You need to pay a certain price in order to enjoy all movies and TV shows that are available on HBO network. HBO Go app despite its top status has a number of shortcomings. It isn’t the easiest of the apps to navigate, so if you are watching a TV series, and end up watching an episode of the same, then you will have to dig through the HBO Go library in order to get the next episode.
This is something that people were dealing with until last year, as the company changed its functionality in the latter half of 2017 when the company unveiled an update for the app. In that update, the company has fixed the problem that people were getting when searching for next episodes of TV series. After updating their apps, people were able to pick up where they last left off easily. Moreover, they could easily watch their favorite shows without touching their smartphones.
HBO basically launched a binge mode, which is an essential feature that the company has taken from the likes of Hulu and Netflix. After finding shows that you are looking to watch, you are automatically going to see the next episode that you may be interested in seeing, or you will get a prompt to pick back up on an episode that you have paused before. After the credits appear on your screen, you will see the next episode begin to appear on the screen automatically.
There is no doubt upon the fact that HBO Go has really made big improvements over the years. I really liked the fact that HBO Go has decreased the rates of its monthly subscription in order to lure in more customers. Now, people think HBO Go as an alternative for those who are not in a mood of paying $15 per month for HBO Now.
But, there is a lot to be done in the User Interface department. But, the changes that the company has made will be perceived in a positive way by users. They are going to remain excited about the app because they know that HBO will come up with new features that it will transfer in the form of updates.
