HBO Max isn't available message
HBO Max is available in the United States and certain U.S. territories, as well as select countries in Latin America, Europe, and the Caribbean. For a list of countries, see Where is HBO Max available?
If you're located in one of these areas and you get a 'HBO Max isn't available in your region yet' message, your IP address might be blocked or incorrectly identified as being outside of an HBO Max service area. To resolve this, try these steps:
Step 1: Unblock your IP address
- Disable your VPN, proxy, or anonymization service so that your IP address is not blocked.
Step 2: Restart your network devices
Try restarting your modem and router. Here's how:
- Turn off or unplug the device with HBO Max.
- Unplug the power from your network devices (modem, router, etc.).
- Wait 30 seconds.
- Reconnect the power to your modem and wait for it to connect to the Internet (about a minute).
- Reconnect the power to your router and wait for it to connect to the Internet.
- Turn your device with HBO Max back on.
- Open HBO Max and try to watch something.
Step 3: Contact your ISP
If you've disabled VPNs, proxies, and anonymization services, please contact your Internet service provider for help.
Step 4: Contact us
If you still get a service area message, gather the following info and contact us:
- Your Internet Service Provider (ISP)
