HBO has a mobile app. It lets you watch shows, and it supports Chromecast. Really, that's all that matters here. There's little else it needs in the way of features that will determine whether or not users will turn to it when the opportunity comes to spend some time with HBO. The real question is - do you really want to watch all those sex scenes on the family TV?

Let's go through the checklist. Is your mom home?

What about your dad?

Both?

Heck, let's change roles for a second. Would you really want to walk in on your daughter watching this?

Yeah, now would be a good time to go give the app a try. For everyone's sake.

    These commercials are genius! All ads need to be this hilarious! Hahahahaha!

    • Neill Smith

      Eh, cheap 'Mom and Dad are uncool' laughs are pretty common. See: every sitcom ever.

        But how many of them are set in a scene where a girl is about to be porked in the butt?

        • MeCampbell30

          Exactly. *fingergun . . . point . . . wink*

      • Mike Harris

        That may be a common theme, but the way they approached it in these ads is brilliant.

    This awesomeness just made my day. Hell...my week!

    Awesome. Hilarious. All of em. On other note, did I just spot a new Android logo there or is it just HBO writing it like that? About time we lost the 1990s style logo.

    • SSDROiD

      *confession bear* I think the current Android logo is awesome.

        Actually, I like it too. The only problem is that it looks very old. I think it needs a revamp and the one in the videos is really good. I know it looks plain text but still far more modern than the current. :)

    If you have the balls to watch Game of Thrones with your teenage kids... I dare you to watch "Nymphomaniac" with them http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1937390/

    • hmmm

      Cant we just watch straight-up porn?

      • John Smith

        There's something cool about having celebrities in raunchy films (even if they do use body doubles)

    I feel bad the "under 25 crowd" is always being pushed towards or just don't know better and are watching stuff on 4" screens. I don't understand why anyone would want to do that except in limited situations... Most young people these days have TVs in their bedrooms right? So what is the problem? These ads are dumb...

    In a couple of years, I see younger people going retro and discovering the big screen technology for home use. LOL

    The best thing on the entire Internet today. All of it.

  • Dalvik

    But if I can't watch sex scene on big screen, then what's the point of buying HDTV?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      You should watch Don Jon to find out.

  • dkbnyc

    Am I the only one getting "This Video is Private." on all the videos?
