How to Get HBO Go Samsung Tizen TV


Alex

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 . . .

      Samsung Electronics today announced that its Tizen OS will be embedded in Loewe’s latest premium TV, stellar, set to launch on July 15 in Europe. This is a significant milestone for the Tizen Licensing Program, which started in 2022 and is now rapidly growing in Europe and worldwide.
       
      “This new collaboration with Loewe ensures that its latest luxury TV, stellar, will exceed expectations with the high-end experiences it brings to consumers,” said YS Kim, EVP, Head of the Service Business Team, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “It’s also more momentum for Tizen OS, which has established itself as the software platform of choice for premium TVs. Moving forward, we will continue to push the boundaries of how users interact with their TVs.”
       
      Loewe, renowned for its luxury and high-end TVs, has chosen Tizen OS to enhance the viewing experience of its consumers. In particular, the brand is celebrated for its impeccable design and use of premium and unique materials — including stone and concrete back panels. Building on that foundation, this partnership with Samsung underscores the mutual commitment of both companies to deliver superior user experiences.
       
      Tizen OS, based on the newest 2024 Tizen licensing platform, offers a wealth of content and service options, making it the ideal choice for Loewe’s discerning customer base. With Tizen OS, users have access to a wide variety of features, ensuring an unparalleled entertainment experience. Key features include:
       
      Samsung TV Plus: A vast array of free channels and on-demand content, providing a diverse selection of entertainment options. Gaming Hub: Access to top gaming platforms and services, offering an integrated gaming experience of 1,000+ titles without the need of a console. SmartThings: Seamless connection to smart devices in your home.  
      Outside of licensing partnerships, Tizen OS powers 270 million Samsung Smart TVs and offers an intuitive interface that minimizes the steps required for navigation and customization. Tizen OS users can stream their favorite content and play thousands of games — all on one screen — and every aspect of the TV experience is personalized and secured by Samsung Knox.

      Hi, I've developed the Tizen app using the web and now after building it, the build is created in wgt format.
      I want to install the build directly on Samsung Tv so that I can test the app there once.
      I've already created the certificates and it's also verified by the Tizen team.
      Now, when I tried to connect the SamsungTv with Tizen using the Device Manager I'm getting these following errors
      The remote device is already connected by another one. This remote device is running on a non-standard port or There is no IP address, please check the physical connection What I've done?
      I opened the developer mode of Samsung tv and updated the IP address with my system IP address and in the device manager I added all the details what was required and after clicking on add button then I faced the above errors.
      Can anyone help me like how can we either create the build in .tmg format because Usb demo packaging tool is not supported now.  Or how can I connect the SamsungTv with Tizen Studio using the Device Manager. 
      I've read and went through the documentation from official site still I face this issue.

      “What really sets the S32G80SD apart, though, is a trio of ground-breaking new features for the monitor world,” said Forbes. These features include:
       
      The Pulsating Heat Pipe, the first of its kind in a monitor to help prevent burn-in, “delivered in an ultra-thin screen design…can work on an extremely local level, efficiently only impacting the parts of the screen Samsung’s processor identifies as being potential ‘hot spots’.” The OLED Glare Free screen, which “‘rejects’ both ambient and direct light sources almost defies belief… This helps you appreciate the screen’s OLED-powered contrast better and removes one of the most common gaming distractions.” The S32G80SD-optimized NQ8 AI Gen 3 processor, which demonstrates “increased crossover between the gaming monitor and TV worlds.”

For those looking for a well-rounded monitor, “There’s no other monitor out there right now that does such a fantastic job of switching between its gaming and video ‘sides’ without either feeling compromised by the other.”
       
      Home Theater Review echoed the praise, awarding Samsung’s OLED G8 their 2024 Editors’ Choice award and giving it an overall 5-star rating. They note that Samsung has “cracked the code” with the Odyssey OLED G8, stating that “whether you’re a casual gamer or a die-hard esports competitor, the G8 has you covered… For gamers, the G8 is an absolute dream.”
       
      The outlet was also impressed by the monitor’s versatility, highlighting that “the integrated Samsung Gaming Hub transforms the display into a full-fledged gaming platform.” In fact, the Odyssey OLED G8 can also be used as a standalone TV through the Smart TV functionality, providing access to all the latest apps and streaming services. Home Theater Review concluded, “The G8 delivers an unparalleled experience… setting a new gold standard for all-in-one monitors.”

      “Walking along the beach takes me back to my childhood, looking at reflections on the water and the way the horizon keeps changing”
      — Serge Hamad, photographer
       
      Serge Hamad is a visual storyteller whose multifaceted talents as a journalist, photographer and artist have informed the rich tapestry of his work. Having documented sociopolitical issues in war zones earlier in his career as a journalist, he now captures calm and serene seaside images as a photographer. Hamad’s work, including the highly acclaimed “Relax” series, captures tranquility in his signature style and also supports human rights groups with its impact.
       
      Born in the Mediterranean, Hamad has been profoundly influenced by his lifelong fascination with the sea. His photography, characterized by comforting and reflective qualities, has gained widespread recognition from global audiences. Since joining Samsung Art Store in 2020, his work has gained an even wider following as people have interacted with his art in new ways.
       
      This June, Samsung Art Store added two more of his notable pieces — “Beach #61” in the “Colors of Pride” collection and “Beach #64” in “Hello Summer.”
       
      In an interview with Samsung Newsroom, Hamad shared his creative process and how his background and life experiences shape his art, as well as the profound impact his evocative images have had on viewers.

      An Artist’s Journey
      Q: Please describe your journey into the world of visual arts. What inspired you to move in that direction?
       
      Earlier in my career, I used photography and videography to document various sociopolitical issues as a war zone journalist. In 2011, I decided to shift my focus to capturing more sincere and lighthearted scenes with my lens.
       
      With the “Relax” series,1 my first body of work in fine art, I wanted to share peaceful and placid images with human rights organizations and support them with the proceeds. The public response well surpassed my expectations, so I decided to continue on this path.
       
      Q: Your “Relax” series is well known. What inspired you to shoot a series on the beach?
       
      I was born on the Mediterranean coast, and the sea has always fascinated me. Walking along the beach takes me back to my childhood. I used to love looking at reflections on the water and the way the horizon kept changing.
       
      My multicultural background, being half North African and half Westerner, has profoundly influenced my artistic vision and the themes I explore in my work. This unique blend of cultures allows me to draw from a rich tapestry of traditions and aesthetics, especially when it comes to colors. It has given me a broader perspective, enabling me to see and interpret the world through diverse lenses.
       
      Q: How do you make your beach photography so engaging?
       
      When it comes to capturing an engaging image, planning and timing are crucial. Planning is more than just checking the weather before a shoot — it’s also about selecting the right filming location. For example, I would go to a beach near a marina if I want a shot of a boat on the horizon. To capture a pelican diving into the sea, I would pick a specific beach and go there an hour before sunset. The rest of the atmosphere depends on human interactions with natural elements.
       
      Q: Why does the beach hold so much significance for you?
       
      Consistency is my top priority when developing a collection. I started the “Relax” series at the beach because it is one of the most relaxing places on the planet for millions of people, including myself. I enjoy working at the beach because it reminds me of both the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea from my childhood.

      Collaborating With Samsung Art Store
      Q: How do you choose which pieces to share with Samsung Art Store? What emotions or themes do you wish to share? 
       
      I work with Samsung to select pieces that align with a particular themed curation because that way, I can focus on the message delivered to viewers. I strive to convey tranquility and harmony through my pieces on Samsung Art Store.
       
      Q: Samsung Art Store featured “Beach #61” and “Beach #64” in its June collections. Can you share the meaning behind these pieces?
       
      ▲ “Beach #61” (2023)
       
      “Beach #61” was shot in California. The rainbow-colored lifeguard house symbolizes tolerance.
       
      ▲ “Beach #64” (2023)
       
      “Beach #64” is more of a friendly invitation for the viewer to follow my footsteps on a walk at the beach.
       
      Q: Of all the works you’ve made available on Samsung Art Store, what are your three favorites?
       
      I’d have to choose “Beach #4,” “Beach #37” and “Beach #32.” All three photographs show how humans share nature with seabirds.
       
      ▲ “Beach #4” (2011)
       
      “Beach #4” uses a minimalistic approach to convey serenity with natural lines and colors. Before taking this photo, I wondered who would call a taxi to go surfing. It was only when the car approached that I realized it was a lifeguard vehicle.
       
      ▲ “Beach #37” (2016)
       
      I couldn’t resist capturing this scene of a seagull resting on a dune that looked like a charcoal painting.
       
      ▲ “Beach #32” (2014)
       
      Even if the seagulls in “Beach #32” had left and weren’t in the shot, we would still know that they had shared the dune with humans and enjoyed it together. The footprints of both humans and birds on the same dune symbolize their different influences on nature.
       
      “Embracing culture in our homes is always a great idea, and The Frame does just that.”
       
       
      Embracing the Future
      Q: As an artist, how do you feel about the impact of technology on the art world?
       
      Technology has always impacted my work and influenced my approach to photography. As a photographer, I use various tools every day to express myself — and different situations and subjects calls for different tools. Improving technology means giving artists more powerful capabilities to express themselves, so I embrace both analog and digital tools.
       
      In my opinion, artists in all kinds of disciplines have always benefited from innovations. During my career as a photographer, I have seen the popularization of imaging technology to a level that made it accessible to everyone. I believe this has created new artists and will continue to do so. The main thing to keep in mind, though, is that technology is a tool. The artistic process happens in your own mind.
       
      Q: How do you believe your collaboration with Samsung Art Store and The Frame has changed the way people appreciate art in their homes?
       
      The Frame is a brilliant concept, making art more accessible to a wider audience. Embracing culture in our homes is always a great idea, and The Frame does just that.
       
      Q: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
       
      I’m working on a new series called “A table here, a table there.” I plan to spend a few months traveling along the U.S. West Coast to produce it and hope to share the collection by the end of this year.
