Depending on the price it might be a nice way to watch some interesting shows, especially since I killed my cable the other day (cable isn't worth that much money a month to me). But to be honest I'd rather have netflix have it so I can stream it to the TV via my HTPC.

too many independent companies with their own services... why do they insist on making piracy the path of least resistance?

This might be a sting in Netflix's butt, but I think they can fight it out with no problem. Everyone I know has Netflix, they did not get it just so they can see HBO. Though it is nice to stream it on iPad or iPhone, it is still just something I would play with initially but I will go back to my Tivo and record to play on big TV. Before you ask, no I would not spend $100 to buy an iTV so I can stream HBO.
Edit: BTW HBO has been advertising this for quite some time now, the ads says service is free to all HBO subscribers.

I would gladly give up Netflix to have some new content. It's getting really old having to watch movies I've already seen. When does netflix even update? I've seen maybe a dozen new additions this year, and most are tv shows from two seasons ago. Between HBO and redbox, I think I could justify not having netflix.

"Go" means "poop" in Farsi. An apt association, I'd say, given the quality of HBO's programming.

Ummm I wouldn't risk giving up all the content available on Netflix, just so I can watch a few movies and a handful of shows. I think this app would be a great add-on if you already have existing service with HBO, but I'm sure this is just for the convience of taking that service mobile. It'd be pointless to replace Netflix with HBO. Who cares how long the DVDs take to get to you in the mail when you have so much available to stream instantly? You wouldn't even notice.

I don't understand how people cab say this will threaten Netflix. Netflix is the iPhone, HBO Go is Windows Mobile. Catch my drift? Market share in one segment means nothing for market share in another. People can have a single Netflix account and watch through their PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, iPhone, soon Android and have videos shipped to their house.
HBO has True Blood and other award winning shows. But Netflix has taken over and the support for multiple platforms will keep it gaining steam for years.
