During testing of the Gigastrand OS I decided it was time to see if I could make HBO GO (the video on demand service from HBO), work on my home laptop. I have used HBO GO on my Gigastrand PADD and my phone without much issue aside from the occasional buffering issue.
The result: It worked at least as good as on my tablet and phone from Chrome.
There was absolutely nothing to it. I didn't have to dink around with it, load anything, or change any settings. It just worked.
Netflix could take a page from this and make their service work this well.
