    Default HBO Go Buffering Issues

    Has anyone else experienced issues with HBO Go buffering? I don't have a problem with the Netflix app and it only seems to be HBO Go. It will buffer but never start playback again. I can rewind a little bit and get it to go again but usually it starts buffering within a minute or two.

    I understand that Chromecast requires a strong WiFi signal and a fast internet. Chromecast is showing a signal strength of 3 out of 4 bars and my internet connection is 15mbps down 2mbps up. I think it's an issue with HBO Go as I have never had an issue with Netflix.

    I am using the apps on my Nexus 5 but that is just the interface as Chromecast downloads the video itself. It's not streamed from my phone.

    I'm having the same issue. Everything works flawlessly with the exception of HBO Go.

    I am finding the same. Netflix works great and movie rentals from playstore. Hbo go never gets past buffering or if program starts it stops to buffer every 10 sec or so. Can anyone help?

    I'm trying right now. Might be a issue on HBO's end probably.

    Same issue here. It's really frustrating. Everything else works fine.

    Ditto, I'm having the same issue with HBO Go. It seems to run ok for awhile then it is stop and go buffering which is enough to drive one nuts. Haven't figured it out yet and hope it isn't an ongoing problem. Hope Google finds a fix pretty quick as I am not a happy camper.

    Does anyone successfully cast HBO Go? Mine still buffers every 5-8 mins. Never happens on Netflix or YouTube.

    Yes, it works fine for me. The downside is lack of 5.1 audio.
