How does the HBO GO Watchlist work?

Your Watchlist is a list of shows and movies that you've saved to watch at another time. Your Watchlist is available when you sign in to HBO GO on any device (your computer, phone, tablet, or TV).

Add an item to your Watchlist

Find a show or movie that you want to watch and..

  • Computer: Hover your mouse over an item and then click + Add.
  • Phone or tablet: Tap the title under a show or movie, and then tap Add to Watchlist.
  • TV or game console: Choose the item, and then choose Add to Watchlist.
  • TiVo: Select the show or movie you want to add, then select the (+) icon below it. 

If a show or movie is already on your Watchlist, you'll see - Remove or Remove from Watchlist. Episodes and movies stay on your Watchlist until you remove them or they're no longer available on HBO GO. 

Note  You can't add an entire series to your watchlist at once. Instead, you can add individual shows, or go to a show's series page to see which shows you haven't watched (for example, go to Series > Game of Thrones to see where you are in the Game of Thrones series).
