Unblock HBO GO with Smart DNS

Unblock HBO GO

HBO is another one of the behemoth premium TV service providers available in the United States, just second behind the Starz owned Encore package. HBO is available to around 32 million households in America; this is almost 30% of all cable, satellite and Telco customers in the country (for reference Encore programming reaches just over 41.5 million). HBO is not just available to those in the USA; a lot of the HBO library is available in Canada, Australia and much of Europe. In the UK for example a lot of what HBO has to offer is available on the channel Sky Atlantic which as the name suggests is available with the Sky satellite service. The BBC also has access to some of what HBO has to offer for those that don’t have satellite TV.

HBO are responsible for some of the most seminal TV shows ever created with their portfolio containing massive cultural icons like The Sopranos, Sex and the City and more recently the colossal Game of Thrones saga.

HBO offer a lot more than just TV shows though; with a comprehensive film library featuring the likes of Rush, Gangster Squad, Riddick and many more. Also available is a wide range of comedy shows from famous names like Louis C.K., Chris Rock and Bill Maher. There are also fascinating documentaries and various sports to cater for every taste.

Now previously these were only available through your TV but a while ago HBO implemented their new on demand service dubbed HBO GO. With HBO GO you can watch all of the TV shows, movies, comedians, documentaries and sports programmers I mention above, whenever you want. All of this content is available in both standard and high definition and can be accessed on a whole wealth of devices, including Roku, Apple TV and several game consoles. This means no matter where you are you have access to your favourite HBO content.

Whilst HBO programming is available to a whole wealth of countries at the moment HBO GO is only available to those that reside in the United States, this is a shame as HBO really has a lot to offer, especially in the TV show department. There is a way to circumvent this blocking though.

With Smart DNS you can bypass HBO GO restriction and get access many geoblocked websites with absolutely no loss of speed or needing to fiddle with server locations, Smart DNS is a one size fits all solution when compared to the VPN for media purposes.

Smart DNS works by identifying the origin of the website you are trying to access that is locked to non-domestic users and runs your data through our servers and then point it at your website making it appear you are accessing from the correct location, meaning you have full, unfiltered admittance.

Smart DNS is simple to set up too, all you have to do is change the DNS settings on your device of choice to match the ours and you will be away visiting whatever website you wish; no speed loss and no hassle.
