How to use AirPlay to watch HBO GO on your Apple TV

You can use AirPlay to stream HBO GO from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your Apple TV. When a compatible device is in range, the AirPlay icon appears along the top of the HBO GO video player.

To use AirPlay:

  1. Make sure your iOS device and Apple TV are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Make sure you have the latest software on your iOS device and Apple TV. To find out how, go to Get help with AirPlay.
  3. On your Apple TV, make sure AirPlay is turned on in Settings > AirPlay. For more info, go to AirPlay settings on Apple TV.
  4. Open HBO GO on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and start playing a video. 
  5. Tap the screen to see the player controls and then tap the AirPlay icon along the top. 
  6. Tap your Apple TV.

If the AirPlay icon doesn't appear in HBO GO (Step 5 above), do the following:

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the iOS Control Center (swipe up from the bottom edge on iPhone 8 or earlier, or swipe down from the upper-right corner on iPhone X or later). 
  2. Tap Screen Mirroring.
  3. Tap your Apple TV.
