How to unblock HBO Max with ProtonVPN

ProtonVPN users will be able to watch prestige television and pop culture hits on HBO Max! Its content includes fan-favorites and modern classics like The Wire, Deadwood, Friends, Wonder Woman, and Rick & Morty!

Note: HBO Max is different from HBO.

  • HBO is a stand-alone streaming service that lets you stream all of HBO without a TV package. It replaces HBO Now and HBO Go. You can stream HBO at HBONOW.com and also via the HBO app on supported devices.
  • HBO Max is TimeWarner’s video-on-demand streaming service. It is similar to Disney+, but it is filled with content from the WarnerMedia library, which includes shows from TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, CNN, as well as all Warner Bros. and DC films.

Learn more about the HBO streaming services.

You can also use ProtonVPN to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+. See all the streaming services you can access with our streaming guide for new users.

How to watch HBO Max with ProtonVPN:

Connect to any Plus server located in the United States. Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them in our macOS and Windows apps. They can be found in the “Plus servers” list on our Android and iOS apps.

On your Android TV (currently in beta testing), connecting to United States will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.

Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.

Unfortunately, streaming HBO Max on a mobile device (Android or iOS) outside the United States requires the HBO Max mobile app, and to download the app, you need access to the US version of the App or Google Play store. You will also need to register a US credit card with your account.

ProtonVPN doesn’t condone the use of our VPN service to bypass copyright regulations.

Step 1:

Get a ProtonVPN Plus or Visionary subscription

If you already have a Plus or Visionary ProtonVPN account, you can skip to step 2.

If you’re a new user, sign up for ProtonVPN.

If you have a Free or Basic plan, upgrade your account by logging in and selecting Plus or Visionary from your account Dashboard.

Step 2:

Install our VPN app

You need to download the ProtonVPN app for your operating system. You can securely stream your favorite shows on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices. If you have already downloaded the HBO Max app and made an account, you can also stream your favorite shows on the go with your Android or iOS devices. If you have an Android TV, you can join the beta testing program and install the app directly on your device. If you already have our app, you can skip to step 3.

For installation help, here are our support guides:

Step 3:

Connect to a Plus server in the United States.

Step 4:

Buy an HBO Max subscription

If you already have an HBO Max subscription, you can skip to step 5.

To watch HBO Max on our VPN, you’ll need a valid HBO Max subscription. HBO Max costs $14.99 per month. It also comes with a seven-day free trial so you can test it out.

Step 5:

Start watching HBO Max securely with ProtonVPN!

Connect to a Plus server in the US, log in to HBO Max, then kick back and relax.
