HBO is the second largest premium cable channel in the US. HBO is well known for their original TV series and movies. Unfortunately HBO GO is not available Outside the US. In order to watch HBO GO outside the US you need to use Unlocator Smart DNS or VPN to HBO GO.

Using Smart DNS to Watch HBO GO Outside the US

If you try to access HBO GO outside the US you get the dreaded message: “You must reside within the fifty states of the United States of America. If you reside in this area and are still experiencing difficulties, please contact your television provider.”

However, this is quite easy to fix. First register for a free Unlocator trial and then follow the setup guides for your device. Once you have done so then every request that HBO GO makes to pin point your location will be redirected to our US servers. As a result this is where you you will appear to be located and you will be able to unblock HBO GO.

What makes Smart DNS particularly helpful when unblocking HBO GO is that fact that other services are not affected. In fact our Smart DNS will make sure that you appear in the right location for all the major streaming services to work. We can relocate you on the fly so you can appear in multiple locations at the same time.

Unblock HBO GO With VPN

Many of our users prefer to use our VPN to watch HBO GO instead when abroad. The reason being that they get additional security and anonymity, which is important when you are connected to public WiFi or networks. You find these at hotels, airports, cafes, restaurants, conferences and the likes. When connected to networks shared with other unknown individuals then you risk exposing private details with your network traffic.

By using VPN your data connection becomes encrypted and all the date that is sent and received is encrypted and can’t be intercepted. This is why VPN is a popular choice for travellers who often find themselves connected to WiFi at hotels and various lobbies.

In order to unblock HBO GO with VPN you simply need to connect to one of our US vpn servers to appear to be located in the US.

Access to VPN is also included in the free Unlocator trial so once you have signed up you can test one of our VPN apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows and see what fits you the best.
