    Sign in very difficult if you need to paste password from a password manager app. Once signed in, it works like the regular HBO Now app. Fun experience! Can only watch while head is in an upright position (sitting upright). Cannot lay down and watch. Youtube allows moving the screen to watch while laying down. If HBO Now VR also allows this "laying down" ability I am unable to find a way to do it, so please let us know if it can be done. Full Review

    App is garbage. Won't sign in. Just tells you to remove from VR headset. The HBO websites says to turn the phone to portrait for a sign in prompt, but that definitely does not work. Should at least support using an in screen keyboard for sign in, or just borrow the sign in from the 2D HBO now app. Full Review

    I'm using a Pixel XL and a daydream controller and the app is pathetic. It asks me to take out the phone out of controller ( i think to sign in) but when I take it out, i get home screen of Pixel. Full Review

    Very difficult to sign in. If you lend the sign in page for anything, it reactivates VR even if you didn't input a password yet. Full Review

    A for effort, D for implementation Besides the lameness of needing a whole separate app just for VR viewing, and the awkward sign-in process (both of which Hulu got right!) the controls are really sketchy -- swipes on the Daydream controller are often undetected or even go in the wrong direction, despite working perfectly in every other app. Still, once you're actually watching, this is a decent experience, and was delivered very soon after the release of Daydream, which is great. Looking forward to improvements in the near future. Full Review

    Nice try, but not complete yet. Having to sign in multiple times is ridiculous, especially when a sign in option is not present while in VR. Also navigation while in the app is not yet smooth enough. Take some notes from other streaming services. With some updates this could be way more enjoyable. Full Review

    Having trouble navigating Very difficult to navigate to select shows. When playing a show the progress bar doesn't fade away. Full Review

    Overall, I like it, but the are three things that I would fix. First, offline playback, this is really important as VR is already very taxing on the battery, and streaming video doubly so, it also would enable me to watch on the bus or airplane, which is really where I want to use it. Second is that the controls are a bit difficult. Your UI contains small or close together elements. Third, the login was really bad, I couldn't paste my password in, nor did it authenticate with the other HBO Now app that I have installed. Full Review

    Wow.. just wow... The damned thing doesn't let me sign in. I figured maybe since the non-vr app wasn't working I'd give the VR app a shot but it's just as broken. Who knows when we'll get an update to fix such a simple issue. Probably not for months. Full Review
