How do you set up the HBO password

I bit on this promotion and ordered the new Apple TV. I tried to order the HBO NOW before the first free month promotion ends in three days. Bought the APP via iTunes on my Mac Pro. I then downloaded the APP to my MiniPad and attempted to get it going. It asks for my email and password. From what I've found with a web search, this password is different than my iTunes account. I've requested a password reset from my pad twice with no email response. My iTunes uses my PayPal account but it has not been charged. I got this confirmation yesterday but nothing else:

Is the root of the problem using a different email address for HBO Now login vs. the one used for Apple ID/iTunes? I used a different email address when I registered for HBO Now on Apple TV because the one I used when I set up my Apple ID is no longer valid. I have thought about changing my Apple ID, but that comes with its own set of complications.

BTW, iTunes no longer allows you to change the Auto Renew option.

Once you login to your account, click the option “Connect your provider account”. To activate screen your smart TV scan the QR code on the TV screen by using smart phone. You need to provide the unique activation code on the '''hbo.go.com/activate''' to complete the activation process.
