Design – 5/5

The design of HBO GO app allows users to navigate and access features and functions with ease. You don’t need to perform mind-boggling deductions to access features. Further, the graphics of the app looks elegant and fascinating. The black background adds to the elegance of the design. 
 
Talking about the intuitiveness of the interface, it depends on the device. When you are streaming content on phones and tablets, it works smoothly. But, we witness buffering issues when we project it on television using Chromecast.

Despite strong internet connection, the issue is persistent. As the usability is restricted to the USA and its territories, the app does not have a global reach.
