I know there's a thread where some people are finding HBO Go working on the TouchPad and some are not, but I'm trying to isolate this to either being a provider specific issue or individual TouchPad specific issue.
I have Comcast Xfinity, and at present, neither HBO GO or Comcast's Xfinity.tv website are working for me on the TouchPad.
HBO Go: One of two things happen. It either sticks for me on "Optimizing Video" and refuses to the load the video or more recently, it reports back that my "GO ID is currently in use on another device"- I've seen this message twice now. Maybe once out of every ten or so tries, it will however play the video.
Xfinity.tv/Fancast: On xfinity.tv I can't even log in to begin trying to watch a video. It comes up with an error on the TocuhPad that the page is not found when attempting to sign in. It seems the browser redirect page that Comcast has set up to tell me that I am on an unsupported browser breaks the sign in link. I attempted going directly to the sign in page, by putting in the URL for the page that I could see on my computer's URL bar, however after entering in my login, it starts an endless redirect loading page cycle and never quite finishes signing in.
So, with that said, how many of you with Comcast are able to get HBO Go working sucessfully on the device? How many of you are able to get Xfinity.tv working on the device?
