It seems that HBO is not happy with viewers using VPN networks to access its VOD network services outside the U.S. Netflix may allow users to continue receiving services via VPN, but according to Torrent Freak, HBO is planning to take serious action against foreign users, and is even reportedly sending out emails to the suspected ‘geo-pirates.’

For HBO, the countries where users are accessing the service via VPN are Australia, Canada, Germany and the UK, according to Torrent Freak. According to the  the report, a few days back, HBO started sending out mails that read “It has come to our attention that you may have signed up for and viewed video content on the HBO Now streaming service from outside of the authorized service area (the United States, including D.C. and certain US territories).”

The email from HBO warns users that the streaming company may suspend their account, and cancel their subscription.

“If we do not hear from you by XXX we will proceed with deactivating your HBO NOW account without further notice to you,” read the email from the company.
