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 . . .

      This is the third post in the series covering Samsung’s participation in the MIT’s Medicine Grand Hack. You can find the first post here, and the second post here.
      The Promentia team was the Grand Prize Winner in the Mental Health and Professional Burnout track. Promentia’s project was an Alzheimer’s Disease prevention app, also named Promentia, with the tagline “Stay You.”
      Promentia accepting their award
      The team’s main point is that people do not realize that Alzheimer’s Disease is a highly delayable disease. More and more people are finding out that they are at higher risk of Alzheimer’s Disease as the popularity of at home genome services continues to rise.

      Promentia demoing their app
      They created a mobile prototype deployed on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and showed how they could use Samsung’s technology to develop a way to digitally enable ‪Alzheimer’s disease prevention.‬‬
      By monitoring the results from blood tests for six specific biomarkers scientifically proven to correlate to the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease (hsCRP, Homocysteine, Fasting insulin, Hemoglobin A1C, Fasting glucose, and Vitamin D), sleep, and exercise, the app tailors personalized feedback.
      Personalized feedback provided by the app
      The full team
      This is the first product of its kind. Promentia’s goal was to make Alzheimer’s Disease prevention tactics more easily accessible to the general public, so you can Stay You.

      In my previous post I covered Samsung’s partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Department of Veterans Affairs to host and sponsor the MIT’s Medicine Grand Hack, to foster creativity to solve some of the problems in the health care system.
      In this post I want to highlight one of the teams that participated in the hack: Insomniax. With the clarity of their focus, and how they integrated Samsung’s wearable devices in their pitch, they were able to stand out during the weekend’s activities and win the Department of Veteran’s Affairs award.
      The Insomniax team participated in the mental health and professional burnout track, and created an application that uses biometrics and self-reported data to develop personalized recommendations for veterans with mental illnesses, who have poor sleep quality.
      Their prototype highlighted the importance of having an easily accessible device that helps you tracking your daily routine and, with the help of an Artificial Intelligence system, gives you relevant advice to improve your quality of life.
      Insomniax showcasing their app
      The concept of the application they were working on was a way to combine data already collected by the Samsung Watch’s multiple sensors (things like heart rate, sleep, stress) along with a nightly questionnaire on activities/pre-sleep habits. The combined collected data then would be sent to a server with a REST API, then the system would process the data and revise the user’s recorded medical history to provide personalized recommendations on how they can get better sleep.
      The Insomniax Team
      Their demo was developed as a web app using Tizen Studio, and it was deployed on the Galaxy Watches that were made available to the Hackathon’s attendees.
      These kind of apps can take advantage of the advanced features included in the Samsung Watches, like the Human Activity Monitor, that gives you access to and record human activity data from various sensors and recorders on the device.

      Samsung Electronics is in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to foster creativity and innovation to solve health care big problems, with the help of modern technology. As part of this partnership, we recently hosted the MIT Hacking Medicine Grand Hack in Washington DC.
      Just like the Boston event held in June, this hackathon differed from other developer events in a few important ways:
      The interdisciplinary focus was obvious from the moment teams were formed, just after the keynote on Friday. Feasibility and business viability were integral to all pitches. But most importantly, there was no need to code and all projects were problem-centered work or covered real user needs.
      The three-day event started on August 2nd and was hosted in Samsung’s Solutions Center in Washington D.C. During the weekend students, engineers, designers and developers participated in one of the three tracks forming groups, and bringing their diverse views and backgrounds to offer new solutions to problems that affect the lives of millions of people in America.
      These were the three tracks that participants could be part of:
      Access to health care Mental health and professional burnout Rare and orphan diseases. Each track had a winner, and sponsors and partners also awarded teams that showed promising ideas.
      Samsung provided Galaxy Note9 phones and Galaxy Watches to allow teams experiment and find out the best way to integrate the different sensors and SDKs into their own projects. We saw some creative uses of Samsung technologies and genuine desire to improve the health care system leveraging modern technology.
      The Key Watch team won the Samsung Breakthroughs That Matter Award in the Rare and Orphan Diseases track. This team was distinguished not only for the clarity of their project, but also for their enthusiasm to incorporate Samsung technologies in their pitch.
      The Key Watch team with Christopher Balcik, Samsung Vice President of Federal Government Business
      During the weekend, the team developed a way to monitor response to medication to tackle misdiagnosis of Parkinson’s disease vs drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP), which is the second most common cause for parkinsonism.

      While displaying similar symptoms, a rare disease requires an entirely separate treatment process. Additionally, up to 15% of Parkinson’s disease patients have the rare variant DIP, so, Key Watch’s solution could improve the life of tens of thousands, just in the US.
      Their envisioned system would work like this:
      A patient having parkinsonism symptoms would come in to consult with the doctor on an actionable plan for their treatment. Because Parkinson’s Disease accounts for 85% parkinsonism cases, they are likely to be classified as having Parkinson’s disease (PD). They are given treatment for PD and monitored – if their symptoms get better, as detected by Key Watch’s platform, then that would support their diagnosis. However, if the patient actually has DIP, the PD medication would have little to no effect, and through Key Watch’s continuous monitoring tool doctors can quickly intervene and pivot the treatment protocol. After enrolling on the platform, Key Watch would have continuous feedback on the patients tracked symptoms over time, which enables the doctor to effectively adjust the drug dosage. Key Watch: The full team
      The Key Watch members looked into the different sensors that the Samsung Galaxy watches could provide them, and focused on the gyroscope and the accelerometer APIs, that would give them data from a patient’s movements, including tremors and slow movement. With enough data, and medical experience, the proposed system would be able to detect the source of a patient’s movement abnormalities.
      To learn more about how you can get access to the Samsung wearable devices sensors, visit the Samsung Developer Program and start creating your own apps now.
      Stay tuned for more information about this event in the coming weeks!

      Samsung Electronics announced today that it will support the world’s first 8K HDR10+ content, partnering with major European streaming services. With this announcement, Samsung has established itself as the leader of the HDR (High Dynamic Range) specification industry. CHILI, The Explorers and MEGOGO – three key OTT (Over-the-top) service providers in Europe – will adopt 8K HDR10+ along with its support for 4K HDR10+.
      HDR10+ technology optimizes brightness and maximizes the contrast ratio, making bright areas brighter and dark areas darker. The feature is available on all UHD TV and 2019 8K TV models, including Samsung’s lineup of QLED TVs.
      “With HDR emerging as one of the most important technologies for ultra-high picture quality, our HDR10+ format enables every image to be accurately displayed on screen just as the creator intended,” said Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to strengthen our industry leadership through establishing partnerships with top streaming service providers and equipping our televisions with the technology needed to support the world’s first 8K HDR10+.”
      “Our main goal in this partnership with Samsung is to offer the highest-quality content services available to our customers,” said Victor Chekanov, CEO at MEGOGO. “We will maintain our initiative in the Russian OTT service market and plan to provide dozens of HDR10+ movies to Samsung Smart TV users starting late this summer.”
      Aside from the aforementioned OTT streaming services, several other industry-leading content partners are collaborating with Samsung. Rakuten TV, Deutsche Telekom’s Magenta TV and Videociety are all expected to adopt HDR10+ support for its respective VOD services between Q4 2019 and Q1 2020. Also, Molotov, the first French OTT streaming service to offer live and on-demand TV channels all in one place, is also considering to adopt HDR10+. The growing list of premiere content partners is a testament to the industry’s commitment to the best viewing experience possible for consumers.
      HDR10+ content availability continues to expand. Recent announcements from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment debuting HDR10+ on UHD Blu-ray with “The Secret Life of Pets 2” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, respectively, add to the UHD Blu-ray discs already released from Twentieth Century Fox and others.
      Since Samsung began the HDR10+ logo certification program with Panasonic and 20th Century Fox last year, 81 companies have joined the program, boosting the program’s influence in the industry. Samsung has also strengthened its effort with the new opening of an HDR10+ center in China last December, following Korea, Japan and the U.S. With TV manufacturers such as Hisense obtaining HDR10+ certification in China, the HDR10+ alliance is expected to expand even further.
      Along with HDR10+ certifications of existing TVs and smartphone products, Samsung is working to implement the program for its B2B products. For example, micro LED models such as The Wall Pro and The Wall Lux have been HDR10+ certified, and the company plans to expand the ecosystem to include Samsung’s line of LED products.

      There is no native Strava mobile app for Tizen OS smartphones, so what app could be used for tracking trail run and cycling activities on a Samsung Z4? Or is there a "non-native" route to Strava itself?
      Thank you, Maljaros

      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.
