It works for Netflix. If HBO and a few others slowly transition to the Netflix model of selling their own content direct to end-customers through their own service (worldwide) then this will all become a moot point. There's really only a handful of companies that would need to do this and +90% of the need to bypass geoblocking would be gone.
