Correct with HBO Go. But with HBO Now, it is separate from your cable company and the password can be unique for that service

Uh oh. I guess nothing that bad can happen, right? I have all the cable stuff anyway and I don't think she's bright enough to think of doing anything sinister...

Well for me it would link right to my email so forget that. If you are at all worried, you can of course change your password at any time.

Re: HBO GO Standalone Streaming Service Coming in 2015

Yeah you've basically given your colleague free access to all apps/channels through your cable provider in addition to HBO on their devices.

I know your intent was to be nice so that she won't torrent the show, but then again, do you really want to give them free TV to what you're paying for?

But then again she may not be smart enough to figure that out.

I suggest if you don't want that, change your password after GOT season ends.

Google Play has an offer right now where if you sign up for HBO Now through them you get a free week trial and then 3 months for $30. (Essentially a month free.) New subscribers only.
