Me: I'm not using a browser. I'm using the HBO Go Android App.

TW: Please use a different browser.

Me: !@#$!!!! I'M NOT USING A BROWSER!!

TW: Let me transfer you to another support person.

New TW Guy: How can I help you?

Me: I'm using the HBO Go app on my Kindle Fire, but TW isn't a subscriber option. Are there any plans to fix this?

New TW Guy: That App isn't available for the Kindle Fire.

Me: *sigh* Actually it is. TW just isn't available as a subscriber option.

New TW Guy: I don't have any information on that.

He did finally say that TW support for HBO Go on the Kindle Fire was likely in the future, so that's something.

The final kick in the butt is that HBO and Time Warner are both owned by the same parent company!
