The Great War is here, and with it the 8th season of Game of Thrones.
All new episodes can be watched on the HBO NOW channel, but you'll need a VPN if you're going to watch them out of the US.
HBO uses a special technology that allows you to block viewers who are not in the US, but with a good VPN you can hide your real location and cheat the system. VPN services can also protect your personal information from hackers, spies and malware.
In this article, we'll show you how to use a VPN to access the 8th season of Game of Thrones. In addition, we will share expert advice on how to find the best VPN.

To complete your registration on the HBO website, you will need a credit card issued in the United States. If you try to use another card, the transaction will be rejected.
HBO NOW uses the IP addresses of user devices to locate them. If you connect to the service from outside the United States, your connection will be blocked. As a result, you won't be able to watch Game of Thrones!
VPN service is the easiest and safest way to bypass such protection. VPN services work as follows: they connect your device to a remote server located in the location of your choice. This makes it possible to hide your original IP address and present you as a user from a completely different country in the world. You will only need to connect to a server in the US to start watching HBO NOW. You can use a VPN to access geoblock-protected content from anywhere in the world.
VPN services also encrypt user traffic to protect data from hackers, spies, and malware. Encrypted personal information is information that no one can read, and therefore no one will ever know that you watched on the Network.
It is important to choose the most suitable VPN to work on the Network not only securely but also quickly. Look for services that offer unlimited bandwidth and access to fast servers in the US to forget about buffering and long-term video downloads.
The VPN you choose should also have apps for all your devices. If you would like to protect all devices in your home with just one subscription, look for VPN services that allow you to connect multiple devices at once.
As for security and privacy, your VPN should use 256-bit encryption, adhere to a tax-free policy and have at its disposal the function of emergency disconnection from the Network, which allows to avoid leakage of unprotected data in case of disconnection to the VPN server.
