Connecting a computer to a TV with HDMI

Yes, if your computer has an HDMI input you can connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable and watch HBO GO on the big screen (go to on your computer). To enjoy HD-quality video, the HDMI cable, HDMI connection on your computer, and your TV must all be HDCP compliant.

HBO GO verifies that your setup is HDCP compliant when you play a video. If your setup is not HDCP compliant, HBO GO displays an error message and one of the following will occur:

  • Video will play in standard definition only.
  • If a standard definition video is not available, playback will be limited to either audio only or video only. In most cases, the video won't play at all.
