HBO Go Issues
Sorry if this has been discussed here, but I just got 3 free months of HBO GO. I am long time Netflix user/fan and have never had issues with buffering. The wife and I could not get through a single 30 minute show last night without at least two buffering session on HBO Go. That was the case with the laptop, Google Chromecast, and PS3. Anyone else have HBO Go issues? Thanks

Yea it was screwing up last night more than usual.
In general the buffer time for HBOGo is longer than Netflix but the video quality is better.
At least in my experience, I have both

that's about what I experience as well.

if anything I get more buffering from Netflix. Pretty much every time I start a show or movie its in SD for at least a chunk of the credits. HBO for whatever reason only does it so often though like Tiger said, its for a bit longer.

It probably has to do with what ISP each person has, their home setup, what time they are watching etc etc etc.
