Opera 39 - DRM playback in incognito mode doesn't work

  • Hello,

    I have a subscription to HBONOW and I am currently in the UK. (My work means I spend about 50% of my time here, and 50% in the USA). With Opera version 38, I could use the VPN to connect to the United States, login to hbonow, and watch whatever content I wished.

    Now with version 39 of Opera, I can only use the VPN while in incognito mode. BUT, after logging into HBONOW I get the following error message:

          This browser/platform combination does not allow DRM protected playback when in incognito mode.

    Will this issue be corrected in the next release, either by allowing the VPN use in normal mode, or adding DRM support to incognito mode?
