Why you need VPN to access HBO Max

HBO Max is currently only available in the United States. This means tons of iconic TV shows, movies, and visual content from companies like Warner Bros is restricted to a single country. 

However, a VPN (Virtual Private Network) can bypass different content blocks. People use VPNs like Surfshark all the time to see what their university or national government doesn’t want them to view.

Streaming services are no exception. In a nutshell, HBO Max uses geo-locating technology to ensure that IP addresses connecting to their servers are based in the United States. 

Using an HBO Max VPN, you’ll be able to take an IP address from the US temporarily. This circumvents geolocation restrictions and will allow you to enjoy your favorite HBO content without pause.

Will I be able to watch HBO Max at university or school?

We have a 24/7 customer service channel available. Check out our chat widget at the bottom of the screen or send us an email at [email protected]. We’re always happy to help!

What does region-locking mean?

It’s a common practice that most media streaming sites use. Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and more all use it to restrict who can view their programming depending on their region. The best way to circumvent these locks is to use a VPN, which can make your IP address look like it’s from the unblocked region.

Does this violate the HBO Max Terms of Service?

No. There aren’t any laws that explicitly state that using a VPN to watch HBO Max is illegal, so you’re not doing anything criminal.
