CBS All Access is the very popular streaming service of CBS in the United States. Here you can watch all your favorite CBS TV shows, and you can even watch them without ads if you choose such a subscription. But, what can you do if you are located in India and want to get access to CBS All Access?
You have probably heard the story before… you try to watch some special content on the Internet, but instead of actually streaming and enjoying your time, you sit there watching error messages about you being abroad, and that the content cannot be streamed at your current location. Now, that is what will happen if you try to watch CBS All Access in India.
There are two ways to approach this article. First, maybe you have a CBS All Access subscription in the USA at the moment, but during your current trip to India, you cannot watch it because you are abroad.
Or, maybe you live in India and want to sign up for CBS All Access, but you cannot, due to lack of an American payment card, and due to the fact that you are outside India. So, what can you do if you want to watch CBS All Access from abroad? In a way, it is very similar to what you have to do to stream NBC from abroad, but with some differences…
How to watch CBS from abroad (with an active CBS All Access subscription)?
Let us say that you actually have a CBS All Access subscription, but when you try to watch it in India, you get an error message. What can be done about that? It is quite easy to fix because you need a VPN subscription to ExpressVPN. This might actually be the best VPN provider on the market at the moment, and they are the best at unblocking streaming sites all across the world.

And you can use the same subscription (username and password) at three different devices at the same time. That is kind of brilliant, as you can actually split the cost with two others and you can all use the account at the same time.
Once you have your ExpressVPN subscription in order, connect to a server in the United States. You will then have an American IP address which will make you able to watch CBS and all the content therein India (and elsewhere in the world).
