Activate and watch HBO Nordic

    • Watch any of the featured programs displayed in the center.
    • Select Currently Watching to pick up a show or series where you left off or access your Watchlist to select content you added to the list earlier.

    • Select something to watch, and then select Play.

When you start the app, you will be prompted to sign in.

  1. An activation code will be displayed on the Activate screen.
  1. On an internet-enabled device, such as a PC or smart phone, go in your browser.

Once you’ve signed in, you won’t be prompted to again on this console, unless you sign out from within the HBO Nordic website. Each additional console you use will need to be authorized to your HBO Nordic account. You can register up to five different devices. If you want to add a new device after reaching the limit, you’ll have to remove a device from your list before you can add the new one. You can remove one device per month and up to six devices per year. Device management can only be done at the HBO Nordic website.

To turn subtitles on or off or to change your language among Finnish, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian, go to the settings hub.

  1. On the settings hub, select the Subtitles.
  2. Select your preferred language (Finnish, Swedish, Danish, or Norwegian) to turn subtitles on.

Use Family Settings to control access to content

Note Applies to Norway only.

If you use Family Settings to control what kinds of movies and TV shows can be watched through Xbox Live on your console, the HBO Nordic app will follow those settings. For example, if you use parental controls to restrict access to some kinds of TV programs, those programs will be marked with a “restricted” icon in the HBO Nordic app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict Xbox Live content using Family Settings, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
