One thing to note here is your out of luck if you in UK, as WarnerBro has a four year deal with UK based company Sky which prevent them from directly entering UK. we hope things will change with HBO further planning to start a global streaming service once their contracts end with local broadcasters in UK and else where. UK audience can still watch HBO content from the local partner Sky.
