How to unblock HBO with Proton VPN

Proton VPN users will be able to watch prestige television on HBO! Its content includes any show that ran on HBO, including Curb Your Enthusiasm, Watchmen, West World, and The Wire!

Note: HBO is different from HBO Max.

  • 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 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 Proton VPN 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 with Proton VPN:

Connect to any Plus server located in the United States, Norway, or Spain. Plus servers are available for Plus, Unlimited, Family 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 on a mobile device (Android or iOS) outside the United States requires the HBO 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.
