Frequent Buffering on HBO GO

I have reduced the resolution on Netflix to eliminate buffering, but I don't have the option on HBO GO.  When trying to watch some of my favorite shows on HBO GO there is constant buffering.  For a service provider that touts 25 mbps, this is very strange and your site advertising is misleading!  It is true that on large downloads your site will reach 25 mbps and more,  but for casual Internet browsing and high resolution streaming, you fall very short!

No , I haven't.  Do you know of anyone watching HBO GO without excessive buffering?  I generally connect in the Data Savings hours between 2:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.

I just disabled the video saved and it seems to be working now. Why would this help? Just curious

Re: Frequent Buffering on HBO GO

I have same issue on HBO GO and GEN5. Changing Video Server setting didn’t help either. I have similar issue streaming AMC. Netflix and STARZ are fine. As an aside my system speed tests to avg 40M/s so it must be something else/satellite delay/?. Oddly last month my monthly data was depleted and still was able to stream Ozark on Netflix for 90 minutes at 1.5M/s???Very frustrating given my other home experience with Fios.

Or HBO (or other), or something upstream from HughesNet, or...

I've had issues streaming HBO over VerizonWireless in the past. Could be anything.

I'm having the same issue , I can watch about 1 to 2 minutes then it buffers.  Ready to send Hughes netback.
