How to stream content at and with ExpressVPN outside the US? Is it even possible?

in #nbc3 months ago

NBC has been one of the best TV networks in the world for a long time, and with the release of their new streaming service named PeacockTV in 2020, they are for sure aiming to remain on the throne as one of the best content providers in the world. Some people, including Reed Hastings (the CEO of Net) has mentioned in his book named "No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention" that many companies, including NBC, were stuck behind a little as the world turned to online streaming instead of normal TV watching. But, it seems as if NBC is trying to get back on track, and the launch of PeacockTV is for sure a step in that direction. Not only are they showing NBC productions there, but they are also creating PeacockTV originals, especially made for the streaming service.

Some examples of PeacockTV originals are:

  • Brave new world
  • Saved by the Bell
  • The Amber Ruffin Show
  • Cleopatra in Space
  • Lost Speedways
  • and quite some others.

If you combine these with the NBC original shows such as The Blacklist, Blindspot, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, This Is Us, and lots of other shows, this is for sure one of the most interesting places in the universe to look for streaming content.

But, how can you stream the content on NBC and PeacockTV if you live outside the United States? It is actually quite easy. You have to use a VPN that will give you access to both services. Both, not all VPNs will give you access to the content on and on PeacockTV. So, what's up with ExpressVPN? Is that a good solution for those interesting in streaming NBC and PeacockTV content abroad?

ExpressVPN and PeacockTV and

ExpressVPN is by many considered to be the best VPN for online streaming, at least when it comes to diversity. It gives access to more streaming services and TV networks than most other VPN services, meaning that it works with Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix (in several countries), BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, ZDF, DasErste, Rai, 9Now, Telecinco, CBS All Access, and lots of other services. But, what's up with NBC and PeacockTV?

The first step - running the ExpressVPN application

After you have purchased a VPN subscription, install the VPN application on your computer, phone, tablet, or smart TV. It is really easy, and when you have the application installed, open the app and connect to a server in the USA.

You can use one ExpressVPN subscription on five devices simultaneously. In other words, you can run this on all your devices and even share it with your family members without worrying.

It takes a few seconds to connect to one of the ExpressVPN servers in the United States. In the moment the connection has been made, I have an American IP addres and I am ready to check if this VPN can be used to unblock NBC abroad and to watch PeacockTV abroad.

So, I return to the browser windows of PeacockTV and NBC, refresh the page, and let us check out what's happening.
