The highly anticipated Friends Reunion special airs on HBO Max on May 27th. It’s a taped special bringing the old gang together, where they revisit the set, meet actors, celebrity guests, do table reads and some re-enactments of older Friends episodes.

How to Watch the Friends Reunion on HBO Max

HBO Max is a service only available in the US, and costs $14.99/month. If you are outside the US, you can unblock HBO Max by using our service, playmoTV. All you need to do is sign up for an account, configure your device to use our DNS service and then you should be available to sign up for HBO Max.

How to sign up for and pay for HBO Max outside the US

If your device is configured to use our DNS servers you should be able to access HBO Max without issues. The next part of the puzzle is paying for the service. To pay for HBO Max there are two ways you can choose from:

  1. Pay through iTunes. If you intend to watch HBO Max primarily on Apple TV, iPad or iPhone,then you need to have a US Apple account to get the app. Once you’ve got that setup you can purchase a US App Store gift card from an online vendor like GiftCardCabin that offers email delivery. Top up your account and then sign up for HBO Max.
  2. Get a US virtual credit card. If you sign up for HBO Max on their website then you need to use a credit card that has been issued in the US. StatesCard is a virtual credit card provider that helps users pay for streaming services that only accept US.

If time is of the essence then the Apple/iTunes method should be quicker, as StatesCard requires you to submit personal identification (passport, national ID or driver’s license) to confirm your account and record a short selfie video to see if it matches the identification documents.
