How to Unblock Live TV Streaming When You’re Abroad

unblock-live-streaming

We can all understand why TV channels like the BBC and Comedy Central are blocked when you’re abroad, but that doesn’t mean it’s not frustrating. Thankfully, it’s relatively easy to unblock streaming services. As an expat for more than a decade, unblocking streaming services has been an ongoing battle for me. I’ve tried various VPNs, smart DNS providers, and (to my discredit) endless other not-necessarily-legal approaches. Recently, I’ve settled on CyberGhost. The VPN makes it super easy to access international versions of Netflix, BBC live streams outside the U.K., and any other geo-restricted service you want to watch. Here’s how…

And it’s an act of gluttony to watch a movie at home when you could be out there filming one yourself. All of these reasons are why you should not watch movies on your smartphone.
