HBO and HBO Max will let you stay tuned to “True Detective” within the U.S. If you’re traveling to another country, however, you may run into roadblocks when trying to access HBO Max and other U.S-based streaming services. Streaming services typically block users from watching their programming outside the regions where they have licenses.
If you use a virtual private network or VPN, however, the streaming service will work as though you’re home in the U.S. rather than in another country. You can access any of your streaming services from wherever you are with a stable internet connection.
Affordable plans from NordVPN (starting at $3.39 per month, with a 30-day money-back guarantee) and TorGuard VPN (starting at $9.99 per month, with a seven-day money-back guarantee) are two options you can use to watch Season Four of “True Detective” from anywhere.
How To Set Up a VPN
Setting up a VPN involves a simple, straightforward process that will bring “True Detective” to your screen much faster if you’re overseas. First, you must create an account with your chosen VPN provider after downloading the app on your computer or smart device.
Once you do that, the app will connect you to the nearest VPN server or let you choose from a list of servers. Select a server in the U.S. to route your internet traffic there.
Once you receive confirmation of your new connection, you can use your device to watch streaming services as if you were stateside. When you’re done, disconnect from your VPN or switch your server from the home screen.
