    "If you are like a growing number of people and do not have a TV, you can still catch streaming content from HBO on the Internet. If you are traveling in a foreign country and do not speak the local language, you can still relax by accessing HBO online and watching something there. But, then, why are you traveling? Just so you can watch HBO? What kind of sense does that make? Stay home, then, and watch HBO."

    "I do not believe this is a good solution as you need to have a subscription to watch this. Also it is only one channel. While it is an American TV channel I am not sure if you will be able to watch this abroad. "

    "I live abroad and wanted to find the best resource for watching American TV while I'm out of the country for a while. I've found Hulu to be my go-to steaming platform for all my favorite American TV shows. The plans are fairly priced and you can even upgrade to a no-commercials plan, which I have and love. It's well worth the extra money. I get to enjoy all my favorite shows on-demand with no issues so far. I highly recommend Hulu to everyone."
