Another gem broadcasted on HBO is Big Little Lies. This seven-episode comedy-drama miniseries is based on a 2014 novel by the Australian author Liane Moriarty.
The show, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, premiered on 19th February and ended with the 7th episode on April 2nd.
Watch series Big Little Lies online
If you want to know where to watch Big Little Lies, the best option you have is the catch-up service by HBO. The show follows the fate of five women in Monterey and their families who find themselves trapped in a murder investigation.
They have their children studying at the same primary school, and the show opened with murder during the school’s ball.
The crime is shown in the first episode, but the mystery remains until later, who’s the victim.
Of course, you also don’t know who did it. There are rumours of the second season going live next year, so if you have missed the first season of Big Little Lies watch online on HBO Now. Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, the award-winning Hollywood stars in the cast can be other tempting reasons.
HBO Now is the video streaming service from the American cable TV giant. At only $15 a month, you get access to the full package of Big Little Lies. Not only this, but you also get with the package all other contents HBO has to offer.
With a one-week free subscription to HBO, you also get its extensive catalogue from Game of Thrones to The Wire. There also are many movies on offer, produced by its own Warner Bros, and Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox.
You can watch all the previous Big Little Lies episodes there and also the new ones live when they mark their arrival. You can access the web version of HBO Now on PC and for mobile devices, there are apps.
Access Big Little Lies with Amazon Prime
You can also subscribe to HBO through Amazon Prime. If you already have a subscription, that’s good, but if you don’t, you can sign for its 30-day free trial. You do have to pay for HBO here too, but you won’t have to set up a new account. All you need is to pay and start watching.
Once you have the subscription to both Amazon Prime and HBO, you can access Big Little Lies and all other HBO’s on-demand movies and TV shows on the supported streaming devices.
The list of supported devices includes almost everything you can think of (only the popular ones). There are mobiles, tablets, gaming consoles, Roku, Smart TVs and of course Fire TV.
Watch Big Little Lies in Australia
It’s rather unfortunate that HBO won’t stream their services outside the US. The streaming is geo-restricted to the US. Even if you have a Prime account of US Amazon and a subscription of HBO, you won’t be able to access the contents without a US IP.
Yes, all it does is checking your IP address to determine your location. And you need to fake your IP address and boom! HBO has opened its doors for you.
The process is quite easy, and you should take the VPN server users have. Once you have connected yourself to a VPN server in the US, the server gives you a virtual IP address. The real IP address is hidden, and the service providers like HBO can only see the new IP you now have.
Express VPN is our choice of VPN provider. Not only it has a reliable service, but you can also get its app up and running on many devices. Setting up ExpressVPN is easy and using it, is easier. The strong encryption system gives you security and privacy from various surveillance agencies. No outsider will know you are streaming HBO right from the UK.
Setting up HBO Now
Once you have your VPN connection set up, getting access to HBO Now is quite simple but on a PC.
All you have to do is provide your details and set up the payment method. HBO Now is available at $14.99 a month. There is a free HBO Go service also but only for the cable TV subscribers in the US.
But streaming it on mobile devices is a little complex. The HBO Now app is available only for the US market.
You can download the android app from third-party websites, but for iOS, you have to create a new Apple ID with the country set to the US. Create it with the iTunes app on PC and sign in with this ID on the intended device.
Another way is the Prime way. You can skip this pain there.
