How To Access & Fund HBO Now Through a US iTunes Account & US iTunes Card Codes

When you follow these steps you get 30 days free with HBO Now and after that it's $14.99 USD per month charged to your US iTunes account.

Here is what you will need before you move on to the steps below to set up HBO Now...

→ A VPN connection and service (We recommend Unlocator) This is the only service that we have used that seems to be on top of the Netflix/HBO Now crackdown.

→ A regular Aussie bought Apple TV, iPhone or iPad (The screenshots shown and setup here are from an Apple TV but iPhone and iPad works perfectly too)

→ A US iTunes account with at least $15.00 credit on it (if you have not set one up check out our instructions on this first)

Benny About iTunesDirect

My Goal With iTunesDirect

I started US iTunesDirect in 2010 to give my Aussie mates access the US Apple iTunes store and get ripper deals on Music, TV shows, Movies and Apps up to 70% below cost and up to 12 months in advance of Aussie release dates. Since then we have passed 100,000+ orders and US iTunesDirect is gaining in popularity every single week as more Aussies discover the value. Once you give the US Apple iTunes Store a go, you will never go back! Cheers
