    Has anyone installed the HBO Go app on the Thunderbolt? The market won't let me, it says the verizon htc adr6400l not a compatible device. Also when i search for it from the market app on the phone it doesn't show up

    They don't want us using our uber fast phone network to browse the tv interwebs

    I was able to install it without a problem earlier today on my thunderbolt and it works great. Stream near instantly in just 2-3 seconds to buffer on 4G LTE and is very clear.

    Now I did have it crash on me once and then it said This GO ID is already streaming and wouldn't let me start it back up. I just went into to settings and Changed/made up a new ID and got back to watching my movie.

    Honestly I don't know but I'd try Verizon or even emailing HBO Go support before trying Google.

    I'm no expert but i know people are going to ask if you are stock or have you rooted and loaded a custom rom.

    Also what time did you try to download it today just to see if someone else can confirm they were able to download it later than you. Just in case for some odd reason they removed support for the Thunderbolt. Wish I could be more help. Hopefully one of the more informed people will pop in here and help.

    IMO, this is now THE android application. Unbelieveable to have all this content anytime I want on my Tbolt. EVERY episode of the Sopranos for FREE!! Well minus my subscription but I was already paying that plus you cannot watch whatever you want on TV like you can on this app!

    You can connect your PC to your TV and steam all the same content from the HBO GO site.

    Well hopefully someone can confirm they have downloaded after say 4:30pm est to to make sure they haven't pull support or something odd.

    Have you tried to go to the browser based android market-sign-in and click install, starting a remote install. I once found a app I couldn't install from the market and got around it that way.

    I installed yesterday and it works great for me, although I've only used it on wi-fi at my home. But there was zero buffering and the PQ was awesome with no stuttering at all.
    And the amount of content on this app is staggering, I think they have just about all their series' both old and new available, and all seasons of them too.

    Just installed on my stock TBolt. I previously created my Go account on my PC. I signed in as an existing user, DirecTV as my provider, and it works great. No problems at all. Really great App!

    I went to the Verizon store this weekend and the Thunderbolt on display was able to find it and install no problem. They tried a factory reset on my phone and it still didn't so they think its my phone. I have a replacement coming tomorrow so hopefully that works.

    I installed it the day HBO made it available, and it has worked fine. It is a fantastic app with very high quality video, and you can watch whatever you want whenever you want. I can't do that on my TV. With this and Droid TV I almost don't miss Netflix.
