FAQ: How to watch HBO on a VPN
Does ExpressVPN work with HBO?
ExpressVPN has a fast, optimized network of servers that work with streaming services like HBO Max, HBO Now, and HBO Go to deliver high-quality video content without compromising security or privacy.
If your ISP throttles your streaming traffic, or if your school network or public Wi-Fi operator blocks access to streaming apps, using ExpressVPN will allow you to get around these restrictions and start watching HBO again.
What devices can I watch HBO on?
HBO is available on a wide range of devices, including:
Smartphones and tablets, including iOS and Android
Computers, including Mac, Windows, and Linux
Smart TVs and TV box systems, including Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV Stick and Roku
Game consoles, including PlayStation and Xbox
ExpressVPN has easy-to-use apps for many of these devices and covers five devices simultaneously. But even if your device cannot install ExpressVPN directly, you can still enjoy full VPN benefits by connecting it to a router running ExpressVPN.

Does ExpressVPN come with an HBO account?
ExpressVPN does not come with an HBO account. To stream HBO with a VPN, you need to first sign up for an HBO account.
After you have an account with HBO, you can use ExpressVPN to help you watch HBO privately and securely.
Will using a VPN affect HBO video quality?
Usually, no. All VPNs have the potential to slow down your connection, but ExpressVPN is extremely fast, and most users don’t see any buffering issues.
In some cases, using a VPN to watch HBO can actually improve your video quality, especially if your ISP has been throttling bandwidth on streaming services.
What else can I do with ExpressVPN?
Why can’t I access HBO Go / HBO Now / HBO Max?
HBO Now, HBO Go, and HBO Max work best when you use the U.S. server location nearest to your actual location. If you’re using a U.S. location and still can’t access an HBO app, contact ExpressVPN Support.
