Creating a new HBO GO profile after moving or switching TV providers

If you switch TV providers, you'll need to create a new HBO GO profile with a new HBO GO ID. Sometimes when you move but don't switch TV providers, your TV provider will create a new account for you. If this happens you'll need to create a new HBO GO profile with a new HBO GO ID. Here's how:

Step 1: Sign in

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Computer: Go to and in the upper-right corner, choose Sign In (if you're already signed in, click on your HBO GO ID in the upper-right corner, and then choose Sign Out).
    • Mobile: Open the HBO GO app, tap the Menu button and then tap Sign In (if you're already signed in, go to Settings and choose Sign Out). 
  2. Choose your new TV provider or college from the list of providers.
  3. Enter the username and password for your new TV provider account. If you don't know your username and password, contact your TV provider. HBO doesn't have access to this information.

Step 2: Create an HBO GO profile

  1. Enter a new HBO GO ID; this is a unique username for your HBO GO profile. It must be between 3-14 characters and can't include spaces or special characters.
  2. Enter your email address and ZIP code.
  3. Choose Create Profile or Save.

When you create a new HBO GO profile, your Watchlist, Continue Watching list, and Parental Control settings will all be reset.
