Playing HBO GO in full screen on a computer

To get a show or movie to play full screen on your computer:

  1. Go to and start playing a show or movie.
  2. Move your mouse to the lower-right corner and click the full-screen icon (appears as four arrows pointing outwards).

To exit full-screen mode, click the full-screen icon again, or press the Esc key.

If you're having trouble getting a video to play full screen, go to Troubleshoot browser playback issues.

Note: Some HBO GO shows and movies may have black bars around the video image (along the top and bottom or on the sides). Black bars are added in lieu of stretching or clipping the video image when the aspect ratio of the video doesn't match the aspect ratio of your screen. You can't manually adjust the aspect ratio in the video player to remove the black bars.
