How to Watch HBO Max from Outside of the US
HBO Max is the new internet streaming service from HBO. It is considered as a possible replacement for HBO Now and HBO Go. HBO Max streams all the movies and shows on the regular HBO, plus originals and an extensive library of extra stuff. Some of the biggest upcoming 2021 movies like The Matrix 4 and Dune will stream on HBO Max.
But like some streaming services, it only works in select countries. And much like Netflix, the US library has the best content. This is because HBO places geo-restrictions on its content to comply with distribution rights and copyright protections. Therefore, even if HBO Max is available for you, some of its best movies and shows might still be blocked.
So if HBO Max is not available in your country, or you want to access more content on it, the best way is to use a VPN. Read this article to find out how to stream US HBO Max from everywhere with a VPN.
Quick Steps to Watch HBO Max Outside the USA:
- Connect to a VPN with a US server on your iOS or Android device
- Create a new Apple ID or Google Play Store account. Make sure you select the US as your country.
- Download the HBO Max app. Do not add payment details at this stage if prompted.
- In the app, tap on Start your free trial.
- Create an account using your email address.
- Make sure to enter a US address. If you don’t have one, you can use a US address generator.
- Use your PayPal account to pay for the subscription instead of a US bank card. (Note: You can also buy a digital HBO gift card from Amazon’s US website and redeem that when you sign up)
- Now that you have an HBO Max account download Wachee on any device you like and purchase the Premium subscription
- Connect to the US server
- Open HBO Max and enjoy streaming!
Wachee also allows you to stream other streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and BBC iPlayer if they’re unavailable in your country.
