As of thursday, January 14, the website for HBOGo has finally undergone a much needed redesign of their website user interface. My wife and i both being designers always commented on the horrible user experience HBOGo provided every time we watched the otherwise excellent programming at HBO. How could such an innovative, forward thinking company have such an outdated design and interface?
After many years of lingering in the doldrums of good design, HBOGo has finally redone their website and user interface . . . but now the question is, is it good? Have they finally lived up to the potential of their incredible programming with shows like Games of Thrones, Silicon Valley or The Sopranos?
