No. You can't use your HBO NOW subscription to watch HBO on The Roku Channel (you need to use the HBO NOW app instead). ... Either way, you can watch the same great HBO programming regardless of how you subscribe.

Do they both have the exact same content or exact same program or does HBO Now have more? Inquiring because HBO going for $4 cheaper at the moment
