    A couple of local restaurants were planning to live stream yesterday for the season opener. I don't know if they did or not, but that's a possibility.

    That's a great idea if the VPN doesn't work. Do you remember which restaurants?

    Thanks. You’re right though. I’m going to do my best to watch it before the end of the week. A man must try.

    Bypassing region locks with a VPN is often like playing whack a mole, with the VPN servers being the mole, and HBO has the hammer.

    If you have prime Amazon has a HBO channel option, including 7 days free and typically they aren't too strict about VPNs.

    I setup my own VPN for other reasons, but I use it to make it look like I am coming from the States when I am traveling internationally. Also I don't trust public wifi networks.

    ACtually, Amazon Prime video is the ONLY channel I am unable to stream through my VPN - they are actually more strict as I've tried several ways to stream my Amazon Prime

    They must have gotten stricter as they were the only one that worked when I traveled before my VPN. Everything else locked out almost the moment I arrived.

    Yes it will work - but programming is restricted - you're still connected to the internet through the firestick - I have a Roku stick and a Firestick - but I have to log n through vpn server because it's the IP address that's blocked, not the device
