HBO Now, all you need is a US credit card

hbo nowImagine being able to watch every new episode of Game of Thrones, Veep, the John Oliver Show on your TV or device all the way wherever you live in the world?? It’s not a fantasy, it is reality.

HBO Now became available as an app for Apple devices last week for people who don’t have cable. It is very easy to set it up. You simply download the app from the app store onto your iPad, Apple TV or iPhone using your US iTunes account. The first month is free after that you get charged $15 per month.

To open a US iTunes account (if you do not have one already) you need a US issued credit card with a US billing address. The US Unlocked Card is such a card. You can use this tutorial as a handy guideline (it was written in 2010 but still up to date).

Not only will HBO Now allow you to watch all new episodes of HBO original programming, you will also be able to catch up on classics such as the Soprano’s, Boardwalk Empire and Curb your Enthusiasm.

Most new episodes including Game of Thrones air on Sunday. You will be able to see these episodes at the same time they air on cable.

Such an exciting new option for US Unlocked Card holders! What is be the first show you will be watching? Tell us on Twitter!
