Should I Have HBO on my Samsung TV?
One of the perks of services like HBO is that they can be canceled and reinstated at any time, as opposed to their predecessor, cable. Flexibility is one of the essential benefits of having access to these services.
If you are a big movie buff or enjoy more of a variety in the shows you watch, HBO could be a good choice for you. Having the ability to watch the movie or show in question unlimited times without having to set your DVR to record, is very appealing to many. Especially if you loathe commercials; when utilizing streaming platforms most have very few, if any, commercials.
These benefits to using streaming platforms, such as HBO on Samsung TV are great, but whether it’s right for you is a question only you can answer. If you need to lower the number of subscriptions or lower your monthly bill, it may be time to say goodbye to HBO for now.
Another question that users might be thinking is, how do I resubscribe to HBO on my Samsung TV if canceled previously? This is an easy process, especially since the HBO app should already be downloaded on the TV. If not, it requires a redownload but will have you enjoying their content again soon enough.
1. Open Smart Hub on your Samsung TV and select Apps. Search for HBO and open the app (if not opened already, simply select Download and then open once completed).
2. Once the HBO app is open, log into HBO with your previous information and select Start Your Subscription.
With all these possibilities at the tip of consumers’ fingertips, it creates difficult choices on which streaming services to use and which to forgo.
Having a TV that allows you to have streaming services built-in is beneficial, and the ease of use is incomparable to the need to use outside sources to accomplish the same task. Just because a Samsung TV comes with HBO does not mean you have to keep it; you can cancel or start at any time.
