    Anyone know if HBO GO is blocked while using an MHL to HDMI adapter?

    Is the reason I am not getting HBO GO on my tablet because I am on Android Honeycomb. Or is it really because my tablet isn't 3g? Will there ever be an app for it?

    It's not available for Honeycomb or ICS. I can't get it on my tablet or my Nexus. :(

    I find it so incredibly ass-backwards to support HBOGO on a smartphone (with on average a 4" or less screen) but not a tablet which is BY AND FAR a MUCH better platform for multimedia. I mean I hate watching any kind of TV or movies on my PC but I LOVE it on my Samsun Galaxy Tab 10.1. The screen's gorgeous, the speakers are great... it just screams movies, but I dont' want 6 different content providers taking money from me 7 ways from sunday. I just want to enjoy what I have already!

    Oh and from what I've gathered so far, HBO says there isn't enough demand with tablets to adapt it for HC/ICH. Really!? I can't believe that after this holiday season. Everywhere I went someone was looking at/buying tablets. Half the people I know got them for Christmas!

    Wake up HBO!

    Try to watch hbogo from their website without a dedicated app. Use Dolphin HD in desktop agent mode. It might work for you.

    The NFL app has been updated since earlier this week to work with the Gnex.

    You could try, but HBO Go is not currently supporting either Honeycomb or ICS. So, technically it isn't blocked, it just doesn't support the latest and greatest version of Android.

    The same goes for MAX Go as well...
