Based on the real life experiences of co-creator Mike Judge in the 1980s ‘Silicon Valley’ depicts the story of two of tech magicians trying to make their way in the tech industry. Winner of two Emmy Awards, one AFI Award, one Critics Choice TV Award, one Art Directors Guild Award plus dozens of other nominations, the show is now in its 4th season and is rated a majestic 8.5 out of 10 on IMDB.
HBO’s original comedy is available to stream online through the official HBO Go & HBO Now apps in addition to the HBO catch-up player on the official website. The only problem with HBO apps is their unavailability outside USA. HBO original entertainment is geo-restricted to viewers residing outside US and can only be unblocked using a VPN, as you will learn below.

Streaming online using HBO Go requires you to have a HBO cable TV subscription. It is meant primarily for expats or travelling American’s who already have a HBO cable subscription. The app must be downloaded through the Google Play Store, iTunes app store or through the ROKU box.
To unblock the HBO Go app simply connect your VPN service to a US VPN server and then access Google Play with a US IP, the app should appear in your searches.
Apple devices Users will need to connect to the US VPN server, and then create a new App Store ID. This is the simplest way to go around the geo-restrictions using a VPN service.
