After an 18 year gap, The Matrix Revolutions is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. If you live within the US, you’re able to watch the new film at your leisure! Viewing the movie on devices like a FireStick whenever you want is easy. Naturally, that has people in other regions wondering how to watch the Matrix 4 on FireStick from anywhere too.
Outside of the US though, it seems you have to head to a cinema if you want to enjoy the film. While there is something to be said of the cinema experience, it’s also great to watch new-release blockbusters from the comfort of your own home. Thankfully, there are ways around the region-lock. With some clever use of apps, you can watch The Matrix Revolutions anywhere.
HBO Max is a streaming service that has given people the chance to watch new big releases at home. It has been the destination for major blockbusters in 2021, like Dune and The Many Saints of Newark. Yet again, HBO Max is where you can watch The Matrix Revolutions on FireStick.
While the service is only available within the US, you can use a high-quality virtual private network (VPN) like ExpressVPN to access it from anywhere. I’ll show you exactly how you can do just that.
Where Can You Watch The Matrix 4?
In the UK, Canada, Australia, and other regions, The Matrix is only coming to cinemas in 2021. It won’t hit streams for a little while. Even then, no one knows which streaming services it will eventually be on.
That means if you’re using a FireStick, you can watch The Matrix 4 in areas where HBO Max is available. Or, as I mentioned earlier, you can access HBO Max from anywhere once you get a VPN. I’ll tell you how in a moment.
How to Watch The Matrix 4 on Firestick From Anywhere
Getting access to HBO Max to watch The Matrix Revolutions isn’t a complicated process. I’ve broken it down into a few parts.
Part 1: Set Up a VPN
The first step if you’re looking to watch The Matrix 4 on FireStick outside of the US is to set up or log in to your VPN. If you’re already a VPN user, then you can skip to Part 2!
A VPN is a simple tool that helps you maintain anonymity on the web. It can also make you appear to be in a different location. By artificially changing your location, you can gain access to services and libraries in almost any country in the world, including the US.
There are a lot of different VPNs on the market. But only a few offer all of the features that you need for a smooth experience streaming movies. If you want, you can choose from among the best FireStick VPNs. That said, let me make it simple for you: ExpressVPN is the best choice out there. It works reliably, has a great trial period, and is simple to use on a FireStick.
Follow the steps below to set up ExpressVPN.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Power ON your Fire TV Stick and go to Find followed by Search option.
Step 3: Now type “Expressvpn” (without quotes) in the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it shows up in the search results.
Step 4: Click Download to install the ExpressVPN app on Fire TV / Stick.
Step 5: Open the app and enter the login credentials that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click Sign in.
Step 6: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.
You can also read more detailed info on using ExpressVPN with Fire TV / Stick.
Now that you have ExpressVPN set up and understand how it works, go ahead and click Current Location and switch over to a server in the USA. Now you’ll be able to register for the HBO Max service. But we have to take care of a few other things first.
Keep in mind that if you’re only planning on using the VPN to watch The Matrix 4 on FireStick, then you can use the money-back period to effectively get the VPN for free. However, there is a lot of content out there that you’re missing out on without a VPN. So make the most of the money-back period, and consider keeping it—for privacy and security reasons as well.
Part 2: Change Your Amazon Account Location to the US
With a VPN set up, you can now get access to content from different regions! We now want to install the HBO Max app so we’re ready to watch The Matrix 4 on FireStick on its release date. However, Amazon tries to keep only local apps available to you. Even so, it’s pretty easy to access the other apps!
Follow the steps below to change your Amazon account location. Keep in mind that you may see slightly different menu items depending on your location.
1. Log in to your Amazon account.
2. Go to the Account & Lists tab at the top. Find and click Manage Your Content and Devices, or simply Content & Devices.
3. Next, click the Preferences tab at the top, just under the main navigation bar.
5. Click on Change your country/region or Country/Region Settings.
6. Change the country settings to the US. For the address, just use one from a random business or get a random one here.
Part 3: Install HBO Max on FireStick
First, restart your FireStick. You need to do that right now! Otherwise, your FireStick won’t pick up the new US location you just set in your Amazon account.
After restarting your FireStick, you can follow my dedicated guide to install HBO Max on FireStick. It covers how to sign up for the service, download the app on your FireStick, and log in to start watching content.
Important! If you’re subscribing from outside of the US and you don’t have a US-based card, you’ll need to use a workaround to make a successful payment. Just use PayPal instead! Or if you’re an avid smartphone user, you can register for HBO Max on your phone and then pay with any card using Google Pay or Apple Pay.
That’s it! You’ve changed your Amazon account location and used ExpressVPN to get HBO Max on your FireStick regardless of your location.
Alternative Methods to Access HBO Max
If you happened to have trouble accessing the HBO Max app the way I showed in the HBO Max guide, you can try installing the app from your computer. Follow these steps:
1. On your computer, go to amazon.com and search for HBO Max.
2. On the right side of the page, find a little box containing Deliver to. Select your FireStick or Fire TV device from that drop-down menu. Then click Deliver.
3. Back on your FireStick, go to Settings.
4. Go to Account and Profile Settings.
5. Click Sync Amazon Content.
That should sync up the app to your Firestick and give you access to HBO Max!
Another method is to just use your VPN and a web browser, such as the built-in Amazon Silk browser, to access the HBO Max website on your FireStick.
How to Watch the Matrix 4 for Free?
Seeing a first-run movie at home on your own time is great, but seeing it for free is much better. When looking at how to watch the Matrix 4 on FireStick, watching it for free is a big part of that.
The platform that hosts the new Matrix film does have some free trials. Although, it is more complicated than just making a fresh account.
HBO Max does offer a free trial, but not consistently. They turn their free-trial off and on, so you have to keep an eye out. At the moment, it isn’t running for normal new accounts. Moreover, the ‘free’ tier of HBO Max doesn’t include first-run movies like the Matrix 4.
But there are still ways to watch the Matrix 4 online for free.
HBO Max can be included as part of Hulu. It comes with a 7-day free trial. Just sign up for Hulu and watch the Matrix without paying a dime. Here’s how to get started with Hulu on FireStick.
There are other platforms that also allow you to get free access on top of the free trial. If you use AT&T, you get a free year of HBO Max alongside other purchases. Double-check if you can claim this before you use a payment to sign up for this one!
Get the Popcorn Ready
In this guide, I showed you exactly how to watch The Matrix 4 on FireStick from anywhere. It all leads us to one final step: loading up The Matrix Revolutions on release day. I can’t wait to settle in and see how the sequel lives up to the original trilogy!
Remember that you also get access to everything else on HBO Max, so be sure to check out what it has to offer with the help of ExpressVPN.
