Why use a VPN to watch HBO?

HBO limits what you watch by region

Your favorite HBO TV and movies may not be available when you travel to another country.

With a VPN (virtual private network), you can encrypt your data and hide your location to watch HBO anywhere. Simply connect to a VPN server in your home country to stream securely as if you’re home.

HBO (Home Box Office) is the US premium TV network behind hits like House of the Dragon, Sex and the City, Deadwood, and The Wire. You can stream HBO content with an HBO(new window) or HBO Max(new window) subscription. Most existing HBO subscribers can now switch to the latest HBO Max subscription at no extra cost.
