How to get an HBO Max subscription if you do not have one yet?
If you live in a country without HBO Max, you can easily get a subscription. What you will need is a VPN subscription to either PureVPN or ExpressVPN. You can click the buttons below to get an additional discount as you visit the websites of both companies.
ExpressVPN gives you three months for free if you sign up for 12 months! ExpressVPN can be used on five devices at the same time, and has a 30-day full refund policy! Besides letting you stream HBO Max abroad, you can also use ExpressVPN to access several Netflix regions and to unblock popular TV networks such as ITV, BBC, Tenplay, ARD, ZDF, CBS, NBC, FOX, and lots of others.
PureVPN has a 31-day money-back guarantee, and you can use one subscription at five places simultaneously. PureVPN is making it really easy to stream online as you use their so-called streaming mode. Here you choose which service you are interested in, and you will automatically be connected to a server working with your selected streaming service!
Have you bought a VPN subscription? Now you are ready to register your HBO Max account and start the streaming experience.
- Purchase a VPN subscription to ExpressVPN or PureVPN.
- Download the VPN client to your device.
- Connect to a server in the USA or in another country with HBO Max available.
- Visit hbomax.com, register an account, and purchase a subscription.
- You are now ready to rock!
I am unable to use my existing HBO Max subscription at my current location. What can I do?
You already own an HBO Max subscription, but as the service is unavailable in your country, you cannot stream any HBO content. What can be done about this?
- Connect to a VPN server in a country with support for HBO Max.
- You can use your current subscription to stream HBO Max, even if the VPN is connected to a server in a different country than where the subscription is registered.
In other words, if your HBO Max subscription is registered in Hungary, you can still connect to a VPN server in the United States and enjoy your current HBO Max subscription.
How to create your HBO Max account in Windows/Macintosh?
You will need to create an HBO Max account before you start watching. You can create a new account using the HBO Max application on your Android or iOS device or you can sign up at the HBO Max website. But, if you sign up using the website, you will need an American payment card. Or, you can purchase an HBO Gift Card, redeem it, and create an account using the money from the gift card. In that way, you can create an HBO Max account and pay for your HBO Max account without having an American payment card.
How to create an HBO Account on other devices?
If you have an Amazon account, you can purchase an HBO Max subscription through your Amazon account. If you have an Android device with the HBO Max application installed, you can purchase a subscription using the payment card that is connected to your Google account (even if it is issued outside the United States). The same is true if you sign up through the Apple Store.
If you use a Windows computer this is how easy it is to sign up for HBO Max and start watching from all across the world. However, if you use an Apple device or an Android device things are a bit different, so read on to find out how to watch HBO Max on an Android device or an iOS system abroad.
Watch HBO Max on Android and iOS systems abroad
It is easy to watch HBO Max on Android systems. First and foremost you will need the ExpressVPN/PureVPN application downloaded to your system and of course the HBO Max application. There are two ways to get hold of the HBO Now application:
- Download manually the HBO Max APK file and install it. It will be presented as something from an unknown source, but install it and you have it ready. You download it from here.
- Or you have to create a new Google account registered in the USA. Open the Google Play Store, use this account, and you will find the HBO Now application at once.
To later use the actual HBO Now application you will need to use PureVPN or ExpresssVPN to get an American IP address.
It is a bit complicated to watch HBO Max on an iOS system from abroad. You can read more about how to watch HBO Max with an Apple ID on an iPad, iPhone or Apple TV in this article.
What is the difference between HBO Max and HBO Go?
HBO Max is the solution for those who do not have a cable TV subscription to HBO. If you have an HBO subscription with your cable provider you probably have the right to enjoy and see HBO Go for free, so just check the website and you will find out within shortly. HBO Max is the product for those who do not have an HBO subscription at home, but who still want to watch Game of Thrones, True Detective, The Sopranos, Girls, True Blood, Vice, Veep, Entourage and so much more cool stuff. When it comes to content the products HBO Now and HBO Go have the same content.
Can I watch HBO live stream online as well?
If you want to watch HBO live without the chance to look through the library and so, just simply to watch the live stream, then the solution is to sign up for Hulu Live TV. They do have an HBO live stream available but notice that this is just a bonus that costs extra which needs to be added to the basic subscription, so it will be a costly experience, but it is possible. Press the sling.tv link above for more information on how that works.
The predecessor of HBO Max was titled HBO Now and it launched in March 2015.
