Can't access my HBOGo account while house-sitting bc owners also have UVerse but no HBO subscription
This has to be as infuriating as it gets for me. I'm stuck housesitting for a week and am apparently not allowed access to my HBOGo subscription because the internet I am using to access said subscription happens to be in a household that also uses ATT but doesn't have HBO, as everytime I attempt to log-in, it traces the IP address and recognizes it as an ATT Uverse subscription with no HBO.
If I were housesitting for someone who had Time Warner (or just any ISP that ISN'T also ATT) this wouldn't be an issue, as I would be allowed to log in to my personal hbo go account using the prompts without being automatically rerouted and logged in using a proxy.
What am I paying for if my promised 24-7 access to HBOGo that comes with a paid subscription is limited or contingent upon my accessing it over only certain types of internet connections, namely non-ATT ones. It's as if I'm being punished for the fact that they don't subscribe to HBO and I happen to find myself on their internet connection.
What are my options? Is there even a solution? (One that doesn't involve me having to create a hotspot with my phone to allow my computer to connect via a different IP addy. That's just ridiculous.)
