Game of Thrones/HBOGo Abroad

Help! I'm a junkie and will be out of the country for the next episode.... would love to watch but am afraid of geolocation

Anyone have any experience with HBOGo and VPNs? I have an IPVanish account...

Anyone have any experience with outputting a signal from an iPad over an lighting to HDMI adapter- I'm seeing a lot on Amazon, but most don't seem to be HDCP compliant- is Apple's compliant?

or does anyone have another suggestion.. I could bring my Apple TV and airplay from my iPad....

thanks

https://flixtor.to/watch/tv/79578/ga...on/8/episode/2 linking is not illegal. This stream and site has been good. I use uOrigin as adblocker, mind you. And yes, I pay for HBO when it's on and I torrent it. This link I got from Reddit, I checked it, it's good.

I use ExpressVPN and have always had good luck. Be sure the HBOgo app is fully killed before launching vpn connection.

I use VPN Unlimited. Works like a charm.

I actually struggled to watch the GoT finale in Bangkok.

We were in a hotel and the TV was locked on Hotel Mode. I entered the combination to unlock Hotel Mode but the TV wouldn't accept it.

In the morning (an hour or so before the premier BKK time) i called the front desk. They sent a tech up who also couldn't unlock the TV from Hotel Mode...but he brought a spare TV and replaced ours with that one. That TV was able to code out of Hotel Mode on the first try.

We were a few minutes late on the start of the show, but we got to watch it nearly live!

I blogged about the experience here: https://readyjetroam.com/2019/06/06/...-for-48-hours/

So did I - but not because of any technology/VPN issues
