HBO NOW Review. Streaming Without Cable

Posted by on November 30, 2017

I am a huge fan of movies and TV shows. I can spend hours watching TV without getting bored. The only challenge I face is that I can’t take my TV everywhere with me. This was until I came across HBO NOW. Thanks to this app, I can watch TV shows and movies on the go and don’t even have to pay for cable. How awesome is that? Here’s more about this leading streaming tool.

HBO NOW is an application that allows you to access HBO content on your device without having to pay for satellite or cable service. The service is free for the first month, but after that you have to pay $14.99 per month to keep enjoying it.

HBO NOW is a great streaming app with a good number of useful features. First, you can use it to search for any movie or TV show you’d like to watch by simply using the search tool. Apart from this, you can also add shows and movies to your watchlist so that you do not keep scrolling up and down to identify which shows you want to watch. Last but not least, this app gives you access to trending clips and keeps you updated on upcoming releases. The app is handy for people who want to watch movies and TV shows on the go as well as for those who don’t want to commit to paying for cable. I would rate the features at a 10/10.


This App Store and Google Play app for streaming videos has a clean and straightforward interface. The home screen features different upcoming and trending movies with amazing graphics, and the menu allows you to break down your movie and TV show options into different categories. I would rate the interface at a 10/10.

Performance and Usability

If you have something to say about this app and make own review – write me.

HBO NOW has excellent performance. Ever since I got the Android mobile version of this app, I have not experienced any problems with crashing. It works just fine. However, the app uses up a lot of my cellular data and battery power very fast. However, this is expected because I stream a lot of movies using the app. Overall, it is convenient and effortless to use. It gets even better because the developers constantly update it with improvements. For instance, in the latest version, they fixed bugs and enhanced the app’s performance. I would rate its performance at 10/10.

Cross-Platform Use

HBO NOW is an app for all Android devices with actual compatibility varying with a device, and iOS 8.0 or later (works on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV). You can also use it on MacBooks and PCs. For this reason, I would rate it at a 10/10.


This iOS and Android app is definitely worth it. At first, when I got the Google Android version, I wasn’t sure I would upgrade to premium because it was quite expensive. However, once I did, I noticed it was cheaper compared to cable. Apart from this, it is more convenient and has plenty of movies and shows for you to enjoy. I highly recommend it to movie lovers. Get it on Google Play Store or the App Store.
