Can I stream HBO Max if I travel to the US?

If you subscribe to HBO Max in a country other than the US, you won't be able to stream, sign in, or access your HBO Max account when you travel to the US. You also can't stream Max if you travel to the US.

You can, however, still play HBO Max shows and movies that you've already downloaded (to do this, you need to sign in before you travel).

Before you travel

  1. Download shows and movies (up to 30).
  2. Make sure you're signed in to HBO Max on the phone or tablet with the downloads.

This way, you can watch your downloads when you travel to the US.

While you travel

When you open HBO Max in the US, you'll see a 'HBO Max isn't available in your region yet' message. When this happens, choose the Downloads icon arrow pointing down, bottom edge to watch your downloads.
