HBO Go update fixes Android 4.3 buffering and compatibility issues

Great news for you HBO Go customers on Android. The wildly popular content provider finally  addressed a problematic buffering and compatibility issue that plagued the app running on devices with Android 4.3, making it useless. In the changelog, all it says is “bug fixes.” I guess the engineers over at HBO deserves a little credit for getting to this annoying bug before people began to really lose their shit — you know, folks need to get caught up on their Boardwalk Empire or Game Of Thrones episodes.

If you happen to be using HBO Go on your Android device, let us know if the update cured the weak performance for you?

    Unfortunately I updated before reading the xfinity app works with 4.2 and above and with my note 2 I have 4.1 🙁 I only watch TV on my phablet so looking to root
