HBO is one of the best streaming services available today because of their exclusive series like Game of Thrones, Westworld and True Detective. Each of these shows have millions of fans all over the world. And this me just scratching the surface. But unfortunately you can’t access HBO outside USA. Even if you have the premium subscription you won’t be able to access HBO if you are traveling outside USA. Luckily, there is a work around. I will show you how to access HBO outside USA and from anywhere in the world.

How to watch HBO Now Outside US in three simple steps!

If you are USA resident traveling abroad you won’t be able to access HBO Now (The online Streaming service that does not require any cable subscriptions). In order to catch up with all your favorite shows you will need a VPN.

What is a VPN? A VPN lets you spoof your online location and it does a lot of other things which we don’t need to get in to. The point is that you need to change your local IP to a IP address of US. In order to do that you will need to get a good VPN that will not throttle your speed. In my opinion the best VPN for streaming would be NordVPN.

Step 1: Buy a NordVPN subscription or a VPN of your choice.

Step 2: Change your IP to USA

Step 3: Log on to HBO Now and Sign in with your Credentials.

And that is it! With this simple solution you can access HBO Now outside USA. But this only works if you already have a HBO Now subscription. The next question that arises would be “How do I signup to HBO Now outside USA?” I will explain how to do signup HBO Now below.

How to watch HBO Now from anywhere in the world

Not many of us have ever been to USA. Take me for example, I live in Berlin, Germany. The point I am trying to make is that people who are living in the EU or in Asian Countries can never signup for HBO Now because HBO won’t let them. They don’t care if you have money, they just don’t want it if you are from any other country other than USA. But like with every other hurdle, there is a way around this as well. All you need to do is follow the steps below:

  1. Get a VPN that has a US IP
  2. Buy a HBO Gift Card
  3. Signup for HBO Now

This is the only way you can access HBO Now in EU and other Asian Countries. I will explain these steps further for better understanding.

Step 1: Get a VPN

Get a VPN, I have recommended NordVPN because its cheaper and is good for streaming. They have excellent support teams and it works on almost every device. You can also get a Free VPN but I wouldn’t recommend using them as they have limited data and might leak your IP which could get you blocked from HBO’s website.

Step 2: Buy a HBO Now Gift Card

Once you have the VPN you will need a HBO Gift Card to signup for HBO Now’s subscription. You must be wondering,”why do I need a Gift Card when I can use my credit card?”. You can’t because HBO won’t accept any other credit card accept those that belong to the US. And Since you can’t fake a credit card without breaking the law we will have to settle for buying a Gift card. You can get one at MyGiftCardSupply because there isn’t any other way to buy a gift card. They will send you the scanned copy of the gift card via email.

Step 3: Signup for HBO Now Account

Once you have the gift card head on to the HBO gift card redemption page and enter the gift card details you got via email and pick a random US ZIP Code. If you need an easy one to remember then try New York’s Zip which is “12345”. Once you have done that, create your account and click on “Redeem”. Since the cost of the one month plan is $14.99 and the gift card you redeemed was of $25, your account is subscribed for almost two months. After it expires you will have to repeat the process again.

Now you know how to access HBO now with this neat Gift Card hack.

These were some of the legal ways of watching watching HBO Now outside USA and catching up on all of the Seasons of Game of Thrones before its finale on April 14th. But I would be lying if I said that these are the only two ways you can watch HBO Now online. There are other shady ways too through which you can watch all of the shows for free. You can watch them via Putlocker, Kodi, Popcorntime, TeaTv and torrents. Be sure to check my guide on “how to watch HBO Now and Game of thrones Series Finale for Free”.
