Even when you’re jet-setting across the world, sometimes you just want to relax for a while. Here’s how to get access to American TV shows from almost anywhere.
Did you know that every day the average American household watches over 8 hours of TV? That’s a lot!
Think about it, you start binge-watching a show and the next thing you know, the sun’s coming up. If you’re a sports fan, those 8 hours add up fast because College Football Saturdays can do that.
But what if you’re traveling abroad and you can’t miss the new Walking Dead? Have no fear!
Follow these 5 tips for viewing American TV shows while traveling abroad you won’t miss a thing!
Netflix hit over 177 million subscribers, thanks to an addition of 1.9 million domestic and 6.4 million international streaming subscribers.
International subscribers love Netflix too because they enjoy a lot of American shows. Put the Netflix app on your phone or iPad and have a chill night.
If you’re anti-Netflix (for whatever reason), Hulu and Amazon also offer streaming service.
Premium IPTV offers over 6,000 live TV channels and 4,000 movies. You can watch anytime, anywhere!
Like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon where you can download an app onto your computer. Popcorn Time allows you to stream almost any TV show or movie for free from torrents.
Don’t download any viruses because then you’ll have a bad time.
VPN stands for “Virtual Private Network,” and is beneficial for two reasons:
- Gives you a secure and private internet connection
- You can set your IP address
Unfortunately, Hulu and Netflix started blocking some VPN users from using their service which stinks! But, there is a way around it.
Use hola.org or Safer VPN. You can set your location to access a version of Netflix. The only drawback is you have to activate the VPN connection every time you want to use it.
Keep that in mind because it can be a pain in the neck!
Don’t want to activate your VPN connection every time? Then buy a flash router so you won’t miss those American TV shows.
This router is more expensive than a normal router, but it’ll save you the trouble of reconnecting.
You’re traveling on a budget, which means if something is free, take it! US TV Now is a website that lets you watch Fox, ABC, and CBS for FREE.
It also doesn’t need a VPN connection which is a double bonus for you!
Geo-restrictions, pricing contracts, government censorship, and illegal content are all factored into watching American TV shows overseas.
This is why a VPN is important. You can work around the restraints while staying safe online. The better the VPN, the more you might pay.
Now that you know how you can watch your favorite American TV shows, it’s time to decide on which streaming service meets your needs.
Do you plan on having several binges? Or tuning in at night before bed? Either way, your shows will keep you company as your travel.
