How is the HBO GO platform? Pros and Cons of the service

In that sense, we have prepared a small sample of the pros and cons of the HBO GO service:
One of the main complaints from HBO GO users has to do with the impossibility of watching online series that are not original to the signal. Another disadvantage of the platform in Spain is that the failures caused by connectivity problems between the platform and some Internet providers.
HBO Go vs Netflix vs Amazon Prime What is the best platform of the moment?
Another important thing that you always want to have before signing up for one of the three major streaming platforms that operate in Spain, is a comparison between what each of them offers, especially in the catalog section , which is perhaps the most important reason when choosing one of them. In this sense, and as we mentioned above, HBO GO is distinguished by its great production of original series.
This makes you feel sure that you always have at your disposal both a large catalog of current series, as well as complete seasons of others that are already considered classics . Netflix, for its part, is distinguished by the large number of films it makes available to you, with its own blockbusters that have even come to compete for both the Academy Awards and different festivals.
This undoubtedly puts her first in the preferences of the followers of the Seventh Art. Amazon Prime Video, although it has not been on the market that long, is showing signs that it is willing to stay, so every day it is attracting the attention of a greater volume of public, which could well be captivated by the large number of premieres series for all tastes.
