How to Get HBO Go Samsung Tizen TV

Recommended Posts

How do you get HBO Go on Samsung Tizen Smart TVs? HBO Go is supported on most Samsung Tizen Smart TVs.

To find out if HBO GO is available on your Samsung TV, go to Samsung TV: Compatible Devices with HBO GO and look for your Samsung TV model.

If HBO GO is not available on your Samsung TV, you can use a streaming player (such as Roku or Apple TV), a game console, or stream HBO GO to your TV using Chromecast. 

Go to Smart Hub and search for HBO Go

Our J520DAF had both HBOGO and HBONOW, I checked before I dumped our service that we were being able to use GO through that we were for a long time. Once I dropped the service I went to activate NOW and it's now longer there. If anything I would expect NOW to be there and not GO. Why would GO be there and not NOW?!! This has really screwed things up for me and is costing us a lot of money because we have to get it through AmazonPrime as an add-on channel and pay per account, double. When I could pay once and get it on HBONOW. Having NOW would make these TV's more desirable . . . Now I'll have to go buy a brand that has NOW . . .

What's this all about?

Thanks for the reply. HBOGO is all over the place. But it's HBONOW is what I have on my KS8000, AppleTV 4K and other devices that are not connected to the J520DAF of which I checked on this TV and it was there before I made any move. And the fact that it's not on all TV's being that it's HBO's "subscription" app and GO is, it makes no sense to me why it's not there and the GO is not the one missing. People are cutting the cord and the stand-a-lone apps are the ones that need to be in the forefront.

Once I saw it was on both TV's I made the move to get rid of our then current Internet provider where we were getting HBO through and go with a cheaper and seriously faster Fiber service that does not offer us HBO. After doing my "homework" I was assured that this move was covered and even downloaded the HBONOW app to the J520DAF to make it could actually be had. And it could be. After dumping the provider that we got HBO through and could use HBOGO with, I subscribed to HBO directly and set it up on my KS8000 and when I went to our J520DAF the HBONOW app was gone! as I am reading of those complaining apps that they have been using suddenly disappeared. And no HBONOW it's not in the app store for the J520DAF. Which really screws me up and is costing me more money than necessary and would easily finance a new TV and probably not a Samsung if these types of things are apt to happen . . . .

Thank you for your reply. But as clearly stated, I have the app on my KS8000. I had it on my J520DAF, even downloaded it to the TV to make sure it was really there prior to severely changing my HBO subscriptions and when I went to set it up after subscribing to HBONOW the app was gone but HBOGO is there. In the "Availability Charts" it now cuts off at the 5300 models. It once included the 5200 models, which is what I need. The kicker is why have HBOGO and not HBONOW?!!!! More people will be needing HBONOW than HBOGO. This whole episode and added expense it has cost me will seriously change my opinion on Samsung. But since Samsung will now longer be making LED Flatscreens and are talking of retooling plants to make OLEDs. Switching brands would be a no brainer . . . But having HBONOW back on my J520DAF would so fantastic!! and I would be so grateful!!!

I need HBONOW on my J520DAF. Not HBOGO. It was there at one time . . .

      We are excited to announce our May Technical Talk. This time let's talk about Background Services in the browser!
      Agenda
      Time (UTC) Time (PDT) Topic 6:00 PM GMT+1 10:00 AM Welcome, Latest Samsung Internet News 6:20 PM GMT+1 10:20 AM Background Services in browsers by Maxim Salnikov, Microsoft 7: 00 PM GMT+1 11:00 AM Q&A Background Services in Browsers
      Is there an app life after closing a tab?
      The user closes the tab in the browser, and your wonderful front-end application evaporates. But, what if you could leave some parts of it to work a little more for the benefit of improving UX? To respond to some events, to complete the started communication with the network, in general - to execute some code with the tab closed and even the browser.
      We'll discuss interesting features of the APIs from the service workers family. Service Workers allow you to extend the life of the application so that you always have fresh data at hand, not be afraid of network problems, and be able to show notifications - all for the sake of a great user experience.

      Samsung has annnounced novel third-party compatiblity with TVs as part of its 2019 Developer Conference (SDC). This also involves the roll-out of new tools, so as to help developers generate fresh apps for this ecosystem. Therefore, more obsolete or perhaps less-used smart screens could become the face of interesting side projects or new insights into what this OEM's ecosystem could deliver.
      This year's SDC also debuted new tools that may make ends like this even easier in the future. They include EastST, which might replace self-contrived playback modules in order to check that content is running on a given TV as planned. Wits is the perhaps overly on-the-nose term for a new tool that allows immediate uploads of code edit to a Tizen-based TV, so that the developers can view said updates without delay. 
      However, the most important user-facing new facility here may be TIFA, or Tizen Identifier For Advertising. It allows advertisement opt-outs that may be more informative than ever before. It is less than super-clear why Samsung has taken such steps; however, a prime candidate rationale is to raise awareness of Tizen's open-source and cross-platform nature. Accordingly, it may pull target products into an ecosystem that also includes essentially Linux-based smartwatches, other wearables and pre-existing Samsung TVs.

      I am developing an alarm management application on a wearable device. It is a Web application (HTML and Javascript). When the alarm is triggered, in addition to sending the alarm status to the control panel, it should record the sound all around the device. This recording should arrive, in real time, in the operations center, publishing the audio stream on the reference Wowza server.
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi,

      I want to run a Smart TV application in Tizen Studio emulator. The application was not originally created using Tizen studio. The application is made using JavaScript library "TV Application Layer". 
      The application can be clonned from https://github.com/bbc/talexample .

      To run the application in web browser, do the following steps using cmd prompt or git bash:
      1) git clone [email protected]:bbc/talexample.git
      2) cd talexample
      3) npm install
      4) npm start
      then go to http://localhost:1337/

      I can run this app in web browser. I can also run any application in the Tizen emmulator, which was originally created in Tizen Studio. But I don't know how to run the above mentioned smart tv app in Tizen Studion Emmulator/ Simmulator. When I try to run in the emulator, it gives the following error:
      ""Launching New_Configuration" has encountered a problem. This is an error in the configuration file."



      Maybe, it needs some configuration in both the Tizen studio emulator and the smart tv application.
      Please, tell me any solutions to run the app in tizen studio emmulator.

      Thanks
      Sujan

      PVS-Studio team regularly checks different open projects and publishes articles on the results of these checks. This time, Andrey Karpov (CTO) accomplished the checking of some projects that are part of the Tizen operating system and has detected about 900 errors. The article is devoted to the review of many of these errors and will be useful both for beginners and experienced developers.
      The types of errors that will be discussed in the article:
      CWE-14: Compiler Removal of Code to Clear Buffers CWE-131: Incorrect Calculation of Buffer Size CWE-134 Use of Externally-Controlled Format String CWE-393 Return of Wrong Status Code CWE-457: Use of Uninitialized Variable CWE-476: NULL Pointer Dereference CWE-562: Return of Stack Variable Address CWE-563: Assignment to Variable without Use ('Unused Variable') CWE-570: Expression is Always False CWE-571: Expression is Always True CWE-690: Unchecked Return Value to NULL Pointer Dereference CWE-697: Insufficient Comparison CWE-762: Mismatched Memory Management Routines CWE-770: Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling CWE-787: Out-of-bounds Write CWE-805: Buffer Access with Incorrect Length Value It is impossible to describe all the 900 errors, that is why most of them will be provided in a list. However, if you wish, you can examine each of the found defects, using the information provided about the location of the error.
      According to the results, there is a prediction in the article, that the PVS-Studio analyzer can identify about 27000 errors in this project. This article demonstrates that during the development of the large projects, static analysis is not just a useful, but an absolutely necessary part of the development process. Get some coffee and cookies, as there is a programmer thriller waiting for us.
