HBO Now is moving to block anyone using a VPN or Smart DNS service. HBO is giving users until April 21st to prove they are within the US or their service will be shut down.
Here is the letter being sent out to HBO NOW subscribers:
What is interesting is HBO NOW will turn off your service, but will keep billing you. It is up to you to cancel your subscription to avoid future bills.
This does raise the question if HBO NOW can do this how long until other services start blocking smart DNS and VPN services?
We will update this story as we learn more.
