Screen reader support in HBO GO

On some devices that support HBO GO you can use a screen reader (also called a "Voice Guide" or an "Audio Guide"), which reads on-screen text to you to help you navigate the app.

Instructions for turning on the screen reader

Screen readers are available on some Roku and Samsung TV models, and must be turned on at the device level, not in HBO GO. To find out how to turn on this feature, see the links below.
