Why Do You Need a VPN to Watch The Suicide Squad in Japan?

Just like Hulu, Disney+, and other streaming services, HBO Max is only available in the US and some European countries like Spain, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway. If you are in Japan, you will not be able to access it because it tracks the user’s location through their IP address. 

When you try to access HBO Max, it will detect your Japan IP address and block access to the site. You will get the following location error:
