You could just use the HBO Go app Before I go through describing the easy process of making it work I want to get the nod from the mods here. It's a bit tricky because even though the app isn't available for us it's only usable if you have a valid subscription to a cable/sat provider so I see nothing inherently illegal about using it. The workaround is rather easy though. On edit: Here's a screen cap of the app on my handset. and yes, it does in fact swing to landscape format when viewing.
