No, it will impact ALL codes, at least in my experience. I had some codes from months back which were partially redeemed, and if either VUDU or Google was redeemed, the HBO site won't recognize the code. Of course VUDU can still probably be redeemed directly for such codes, but Google cannot.

yup. experiencing the same thing.

The moment any part of the HBO code is redeemed (regardless of how or where) equals HBODigital reporting the entire code is burnt. While the GooglePlay portion is lost because the only way to generate that code is from the HBODigital site.
Important: If GooglePlay is redeemed first it may burn the vudu and itunes portion of the code. Save the google play url for the last redeem.

Method to Maximize your HBO redeems as of 04/19:

1) Log out of Google Play. Visit HBODigital, generate the Google Play redeem url, save it, do not redeem GooglePlay yet.
* you will need to remove the "flowName=GlifWebSignIn&flowEntry=ServiceLogin " from the saved url end (after the &)

2) First actual redeem should be Vudu or iTunes directly into those providers.
* At this point HBODigital will now report the code as being used and no redeems left.

3) The second redeem should be the Vudu or iTunes portion you have not used yet directly into that provider.

4) Last, now you can use the saved Google Play url link, redeeming the 3rd part of the hbo code.
Important: If GooglePlay is redeemed first it may burn the vudu and itunes portion of the code. Save the google play url for the last redeem.

While this method works as of 04/19, it could change in the future or not work at all. Seeing that HBO (warner) appears to working towards making these 1 redeem codes.

**As of mid July, starting with From the Earth to the Moon, new HBO codes appear to be Vudu only. No iTunes, No GooglePlay.**

As of 09/19: It has been reported True Detective season 3 still is offering multiple redemptions. Source: jrod8

Not all new codes are limited to the Vudu Only 1 redeem. It depends on the title (thanks WB.. like this wasn't already difficult to keep track of)

I have codes that showed previously that GP was available (after Vudu/UV and iTunes were used), but now shows nothing.

As of mid July, starting with From the Earth to the Moon, new HBO codes appear to be Vudu only. No iTunes, No GooglePlay. I tried the latest Strike Back Season 6 yesterday and the same thing, Vudu only. Other providers do not show up as options and plugging the code into iTunes does not work. I guess the days of multiple (even two) redemptions of HBO codes are gone, and since they are not part of MovieAnywhere, it really sucks when you have many seasons of a series in both Vudu and iTunes, the later season to be Vudu only, orphaning iTunes. I guess, we should consider it lucky they are even offering a code at all, as I am sure then next step will be no codes with the physical discs (most of their series don't even get physical releases of later seasons anymore either Divocer (only season 1), Barry (only season 1), Insecure (only season 1), Getting On (only season 1 and 2), Silicon Valley (abandon Blu-ray and only DVD), Veep (seasons 1-6, no season 7 for months now) and the list keeps growing). Unless you are Game of Thrones, everything new has been toast. At least they should complete Veep's last season on blu-ray, but that is wishful thinking.

So GOT Season 8 will probably be Vudu only?

How about old HBO codes say like The Sopranos? Will that also only redeem in Vudu now?

Codes released prior to the above discs are still working per the stated workaround*, above. (i.e. extract the Google Play code first) Just be aware that there are some Sopranos Complete Series codes floating around that are from a VUDU promo, so they're VUDU codes and not HBO ... and so will only redeem to VUDU. These codes are the typical length for a VUDU code, 16 characters, and start with a "VTSS" prefix. Oh, I've also seen True Blood Complete Series VUDU codes, as well, with a prefix of "VTBS.")


* p.s. Speaking of the workaround, why keep the whole URL when just the GP code is needed?

I copy the URL but save and verify just the text associated with the "code" parameter, ignoring the "%xx" URL character codes. For example, keeping just "1BXXXXXXX4G7LUGW9Z2506V" from:
%3Fcode%3D1BXXXXXXX4G7LUGW9Z2506V%26payload%3D

(which decodes as: "?code=1BXXXXXXX4G7LUGW9Z2506V&payload=")
Step 1b, for me, is always verifying that the extracted code is valid via the GP Redeem dialog: http://play.google.com/redeem

@ploog how do you verify that the Google Play code is valid? I extracted/copied the whole URL...I can extract the code as well from it. But, how do we validate it is a valid code without redeeming it? Google Play asks to sign in first...

you cant validate a GP code without logging into google play and risking a redeem. in theory you can back out of a google play redeem before you accept it. however many times those codes get assigned a token that locks to your account even when you didnt hit the final redeem button. so the code will be unredeemed on your googleplay account and yet assigned to it. so in practice: you never want to test a googleplay code on google or when signed into google.

you just have to trust as being the owner of the slip and redeeming the GP code last, it will work. unfortunately GP isnt the most common redemption service inside the usa, its growing outside of the usa thanks to the end of UV. so you can run into trade partners who attempt to use GP and dont know how to use gp properly. once had a guy swear he couldnt make a GP code work on his phone, on an off chance i asked him, "are you on an android phone or an iphone?" he responded, "iphone."
