Streaming apps are the future of entertainment. One of the most popular apps available on the market is HBO Go. It consists of all the programming that is broadcasted on HBO channel up till now. People have installed this app on their smartphones, smart TVs, streaming devices and even gaming consoles. They access it via broadband service, 3G, 4G/LTE and even VPN service.
The problem in accessing HBO Go content through a VPN service is that sometimes, VPN starts giving problems, not because it is an unreliable platform, but due to any reason.
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and it is basically used by those who want to keep their watched programming under secrecy due to any reason. Well, it is absolutely normal to streaming internet services through VPN because there are many restrictions that get lifted while using a VPN service. But, when VPN service stops working, then it leads to all sorts of problems for those who are solely dependent on it.
Many believe that HBO Go is best accessed through a VPN service because the app will not show content based on geolocation or censorship. It will be possible to access the actual content that HBO GO has to offer, which is a nice thing to see. But, when things like ‘VPN won’t connect’ happens, then it causes a great deal of frustration among the people. However, this particular issue can be fixed by following below-mentioned tips.
- Find out whether your internet is working or not
If your internet is not working, then you won’t be able to access HBOGO activate. So, instead of blaming the VPN, you must check whether the internet is in a working condition or not. You can try opening a website, and if it opens, then the internet is working, but if not, then you can restart your router. If the internet still doesn’t work, then you will have to call up your ISP in order to resolve this issue. Sometimes, VPN service goes down due to scheduled maintenance, so just confirm the same from your VPN service provider.
- Incorrect username and password
You need to check whether the username and password you are entering to get into your VPN account are correct. These small mistakes can also result in such complicated issues, so you must check that the username and password that you are entering are correct and without any spelling mistake.
- Change Ports
I have also found certain ports in which the traffic gets blocked if it is coming from specific networks and ISPs. Due to this, it is not possible to proceed with the request to the VPN. You must check the documentation of the VPN you are connected to has been done in the right way or not. If you use a blacklisted ISP or network, then you may come across this problem.
- Connect to a different network
If the current network is not right, and giving you problems related to VPN, then you must connect to a different network. You can take help of experts who know how to connect to networks easily.
These are some of the steps that you can try in order to fix this ‘VPN won’t connect’ issue. If these steps don’t fix the issue, then you should take help of experts.
