    Default Stream HBO and movies to your Playbook. Shaw subscribers, Canada.

    If you are a Shaw subscriber you can log in to your account online and watch movies and HBO programing on your Playbook. I know it's not perfect but it's better than nothing.

    Bellow is a screen shot i just took. Gives you an idea on what it looks like.

    Love that Flash

    I have a @shaw.ca email address, and can log into their webmail no problem...

    but when I go to HD Movies on Demand with Shaw VOD and try and log in, it seems like it loads but then just goes back to the login screen. No errors, no messages nothing.

    any ideas?

    Well to watch the Movie Central / HBO stuff you need to have that package. The pay per view movies do require that ( i don't think ). I have the same with Shaw, cable, phone, internet. My cable package has almost everything on it except the Asian and French channels.

    aaaaaaaaaah so I figured out what the problem is! It is not available in my area until April 2nd!

    did an online chat with a rep to figure out why I was getting kicked out after logging in...and this is why! Thats ok have something else to look forward too!

    RogersOnDemand.com works for free content as well, however, they seem to have blocked access to subscribed content when you log in (aka HBO, etc). Sucks...

    Telus' "Optik on the Go" has apps for android/iphone as well as a website Optik on the Go , but i cant sign in, it keeps saying incorrect password. I wonder if Telus will support the Playbook as they have the remote recording smart phone app.

    If you subscribe to HBO through a cable or dish service you can go to hbogo.com and watch movies.

    That just redirects you to the RogersOnDemand site which seems to block PlayBook access to subscribed content. Free shows work fine.

    Is that just Rogers that is blocking ? All my subscriptions like Movie Central and HBO work. Could you explain it a little more ? I will test other stuff out on Shaw.

    Is HBOgo working now (I'm in the US)? It wouldn't stream right for me before. I could watch a choppy 30 seconds before it totally crapped out.
