HBO Go

Why can't I stream HBO Go on my PS3?

Episode 1200

Cynthia from Malibu, CA

Cynthia is having issues with streaming HBO Go on her PS3. Is this a bandwidth issue? Leo says it likely could be. But if she's streaming Netflix with no problem, then she'll have to look elsewhere. She should try using another streaming option like Roku. Cynthia should log into HBO.com and see if she can stream from her laptop. If she can, then it's an issue with the PS3. She should also connect her hardware via ethernet and see if it will stream from there. Another issue may be congestion when she's streaming wirelessly.

This week marked the huge news that both CBS and HBO have announced stand alone streaming services without the need of a companion cable subscription. CBS's All Access starts now, while HBO's service will come out in 2015. Leo says cord cutters just want to watch Game of Thrones without having to have a cable subscription. But Leo also says he'll believe it when he sees it. If it happens, though, that will be a huge development.
