HBO Go

The long-awaited feature of HDMI video out is finally making its way to both the HBO Go and MAX Go Android apps. Users that have a a cable subscription including HBO or Cinemax can now connect their phones to TV's and monitors for video playback from the apps on the larger screen, without any restriction. This is a big deal for such a large content provider to offer the functionality, which really shouldn't have been left out in the first place.

You can grab a download of the latest version of HBO Go a the Play Store link above, and you can find MAX Go right here as well.

Thanks, CarlD!

HBO Go and MAX Go updated with HDMI video out support

would it not work with normal screen duplication? was it being blocked? Couldn't that be gotten around?

It originally blocked it. If you had an HDMI device and tried to play something out wouldn't work until you disconnected it.

I am shocked that they didn't take this opportunity to make the Max Go app, tablet compatible. HBO Go has been for a long time and they are both basically the same app. Epic fail!
