The following is a minor annoyance but any thoughts would be appreciated. When I am looking at “up next” shows on Apple TV, if I click on one that I’m watching on HBO it tells me to download HBO Now which I do not have; I have HBO Go. As mentioned, it’s more of an annoyance that I need to cancel this and select the show again before it will show HBO Go as an option. I did have HBO Now once upon a time but got the Go when I subscribed to it through directv now. Any ideas on changing this behavior?

I just got rid of HBONOW. Had a $25 Gift Card. All you have to do is delete the app.

Herbius, sorry for the delay in giving feedback, but that did the trick. Unfortunately my Apple TV took a **** Wednesday (blinking light). Couldn’t turn it on and iTunes wouldn’t recognize it. Took it to the Geek Squad and they confirmed it was fried. Bought an Apple TV 4K.
