It’s that time of the year. When GoT is back and when we look at ways to watch the episodes in the highest quality without going the illegal and spam-full route, yet not shelling a bomb. HBO live streaming services, while a fantastic service mentions “HBO GO is on only accessible in the US and certain US territories”. Super sad, but not when we have a hack ready to overcome this limitation with our smarts.
After my personal experience in getting the HBO Now access before the series begin, I’ve figured a solution which, WORKS. Not just HBO Go, but Netlfix, Hulu, Spotify and many other services which non US customers are denied access to, and it just costs a mere $3 a month. It basically confuses your iTunes into believing that you are logging in from the United States, not your current home country. It’s called a VPN service (I use IP Vanish), however not all VPNs are the same and you need a veteran suggestion to choose the right one suitable for the objective at hand.
You’ll first need to set up a US itunes account, as you below that it is not possible to access it without this hack: How to set up a US itunes account
The 2nd step is post buying the HBO Go through your preferred subscription, you’ll need to get one of the below for accessing the site (recommended to be the fastest and easiest, after trying myself) and enjoying your couch time 🙂
- IP Vanish/OverPlay (Use promo code HBONOW for a 25% discount valid till end of April 2015)
- Private internet Access
- Iron Socket
- Hide My Ass
Please note: Some of the above may not work in certain countries, but at least one would work for sure.
2. Open the software and connect to any location in the United States.
3. Log on to HBO Go and enjoy!
