It is my understanding that HBO Now is stand alone on-demand app, whereas HBO Go piggybacks off your cable subscription, provided you are already a subscriber. Whether you can connect to HBO Now without Roku depends if the HBO NOW app is supported by your smart-TV.I am not as technical as I should be regarding smart TVs. I have a Sharp Roku TV. I was able to sign-on to Amazon Prime easily but having troubles with HBO. I already have HBO Now and I am trying to connect to this. When I try, it seems to require Roku which I do not have and rather not purchase. Can I connect to HBO Now without Roku? HBO Go seems to be an easy option from my TV but I am not sure about differences between HBO Now and Go other than the fact that I can watch HBO Go on my phone which I no longer need.
If you have a Roku TV, you should not need a separate plug-in stick. You will probably need a Roku account, which are free, to use the TV to it's full capabilities. Rokus are awesome, BTW. I have two...and a Chromecast.
