Many thanks to all who have created this site and
discussion Forum. I wanted to comment that I stumbled
across Game of Thrones as I was testing my new video
editing computer platform and the new HBO Go web service.
While I subscribe to HBO through my Cox Communication
service I view the HBO channel only occasionally. As
I mentioned I tried HBO Go a few weeks ago when it was
initially launched without much success. But about
a week ago I tried it again with my new video editing
platform and it worked about as well as one could expect.
I was able to view HBO Go content in HD full wide-screen
format. It was then I tried the first episode of Games
of Thrones and got hooked viewing all 10 episodes in just
one week.

Note, I'm a retired Computer Engineer and can easily
be tagged a super geek so I tend to push the envelope
on the computer platforms I use so your experience
with viewing the Game of Thrones using HBO Go will

Intel i7-2600K SandyBridge CPU
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
GIGABYTE GV-N440D3-1GI GeForce GT 440 (Fermi)
Mageia 1 Linux Operating System, released 1 June 2011

Your setup likely does not have to be this quick
but I would expect that most newer MAC platforms
should handle HBO Go HD quite nicely. I can't speak
for Windows platforms as I don't use any of those.
