Charter Communications subscribers may finally be able to use HBO GO on their Apple TV, as an updated HBO GO activation page now includes the U.S. cable company as a participating provider.
While Charter is now showing up as a cooperating HBO affiliate for Apple TV, it seems the provider is not yet accepting HBO GO app activations, as users are reporting problems getting past the login screen. It should be noted that Charter’s own support webpage still lists HBO GO for Apple TV as unavailable to subscribers.
Charter has blocked its customers from activating HBO GO on the Apple TV and other devices – such as the Roku, PlayStation, and Amazon Fire – ever since the streaming channel’s debut back in 2013. HBO GO allows HBO cable and satellite subscribers to stream its premium programming content to a variety of set top boxes and mobile devices. It requires users to activate each device via the HBO web interface.
Charter has yet to comment on the situation.
