HBO Max app stopped working on Google Fi with their VPN turned on
I have Google Fi as my cellular carrier and 3 devices.
For those not familiar with Google Fi - they include a "Protect your online activity" option within their settings. That enables the Fi VPN. I had it turned on all devices and HBO Max used to work just fine.
Today I noticed that it no longer works. It says "Not In Service Area. HBO Max is accessible only in the U.S., etc..."
I am in the U.S.
If I turn off the Google Fi VPN option then HBO Max starts working.
So first I contacted Google. Beyond device support it was impossible to escalate the issue with them to the department that handles their VPN. They just kept saying to contact HBO Max support. HBO Max support just says disable the VPN.
That's not really a solution. VPN is not some bad thing especially when you are not actually trying to spoof your location, etc.
Has anyone else noticed this issue?
