Who asked?
Cinotix  +   916d ago
Yea kinda sucks I can't watch it my self. Have to wait until less people watch it or something.
Ziriux  +   916d ago
Or you could shut watch it on TV where there are no problems.

So childish.

Looks like the HBO app is a lot more popular than M$ thought it was
Ziriux  +   916d ago
Yea, but they should have seen this coming I think I mean Game of Thrones is a hot show, than you have True Blood, Boardwalk Empire. There is a reason why people love HBO. Let see how long it takes before they fix it up for people to enjoy the awesome show.

I spend more time on the HBO GO app than i do playing 360 games.
Godmars290  +   916d ago
Don't people have to subscribe to HBO to get HBO GO in addition to a cable provider, or can you just get HBO GO?
BabyTownFrolics  +   916d ago
I use my folks xfinity log in info to get hobgo
on my 360. The app does not care that charter is my provider.
Lucreto  +   916d ago
I will download it in the morning.

I don't want to wait until next year to see it.

Ughhh. I'm waiting till summer so i can watch out without the cliffhangers each week. But its so tempting to watch now.
Knight_Crawler  +   916d ago
You sir are a genius...I do the same.

Cannot stand waiting one week to find out what happens next.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   916d ago
Yeah I watched the first 2 seasons last summer and I was watching them I got mad because I wanted to know what happened next, but I had to take the time to change episodes. I could barely wait ten minutes. Theres no way I would last a full week.

I've already read the book, so I enjoy hanging out with some friends every weekend just to watch this.
matrixman92  +   916d ago
i still dont get the hype over this show...just not for me I guess
WeAreLegion  +   916d ago
I don't, either. It's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO boring! I've seen Civil War documentaries that move faster than that show.
SageHonor  +   916d ago
I've asked several people about the show and they all told me there's alot of sex

It's odd though, there's so much sex it reaches the point where you just want the sex to be over to get to the rest of the plot.

Due to it being a load of different plots that come together, some are infinitely more interesting than other ones too.

i wasn't interested at the beginning.. i only bothered to watch it because my friend came over said this series shows lot's of titties.. lol.

now i'm hooked. not at the titties but the story. actually i even bought the second book right after the first season got over but i don't think i went beyond 1st paragraph.
daggertoes83  +   916d ago
yea i tried watching it and cant get into it. Guess ill try one more time since its so popular. I love true blood myself. Im watching six feet under for the first time right now as well and its amazing.

Pirate bay.

Loved tonights episode.

Why is a tv show and HBO GO app SLOWING down xbox live? I don't understand.
Zha1tan  +   916d ago
i just torrented it, sorry but no annoying adverts and no queues to watch it?

superior quality offered compared to that terrible HBO app which takes a fortnight to download anything and not to mention the added subscriptions of xbox live and any other costs like that of the show.
dazzrazz  +   916d ago
Same here,the 720p 1.3GB tv rip is far superior then quality on HBO App.
Zha1tan  +   916d ago
exactly! It is a better and more convenient service that is not nickel and diming me.

When will these companies learn that the internet is really becoming the place to broadcast these shows, if there was an option to download an episode in 1080p of sources on the internet for a reasonable fee I would gladly pay it.

It is a service and not a price issue as I always buy the season boxsets anyway.
SaffronCurse  +   916d ago
What Ads? It's an HBO SHOW.

Chug, chug, chug, chug...

-Is Game of Thrones recommended for True Blood fans? I'm tempted... ^_^
