For the Americans amongst you, you might be thinking How To Watch HBO on Apple TV for Less Than $3? Must be a catch! But no, you guys can get HBO Now and HBO Go depending on whether you have a physical sub or not.  But this version of HBO is totally on demand. As of Right Now there are 41 different HBO Shows available including every season of them. For example, All 6 seasons of Game of Thrones and all 3 seasons of Silicon Valley (Funny! I highly recommend!), True Detective, True Blood, The Wire and on and on. I couldn’t believe it when I saw what was on offer for the price of $3 a month (its about $2.80 actually)

So this is How To Watch HBO on Apple TV for Less Than $3.

Step 1) Go the this Guide on How to Sign Up for Hotstar Outside India

You need to create a premium account AND pay for it. There are a few workarounds. All of them linked to this guide.

Step 2) You need a Smart DNS Proxy account.

This will NOT work with any other provider to the best of my knowledge! Be careful if you use another provider as you will probably find that not all the content will be unlocked. Do yourself a favour, get Smart DNS Proxy, they have a 14 Day free trial, no payment details needed so you can test it for a full two weeks!

Step 3) Set Up Smart DNS Proxy on your Apple TV

Step 4) Set up your SmartDNSProxy Account

Once you have signed up for SmartDNSProxy, log into your account and from the home page Click Regions

On the next screen you will see 4 groups of channels. A,B, C and D.

Go to Channel Group B and change the region from United States to India.

Summary. Home > Regions > Channel Group B > Make the Region India

Step 5) Download the Hotstar app on your Apple TV

– Depending on how you signed up in step one, you may already have an apple account for the India iTunes store. If you do, great. Download the free app. If you don’t, you need to get an Indian account. Here is a guide on getting an iTunes Account for another country.

Once you have an account, sign in from your Apple TV Box and then go to the store. The app icon for hot star looks like the one in the pic below.
