Do you have the 9Now application installed on your tablet and now you are eager to watch some 9Now content online. Is it possible to watch 9Now on mobile devices abroad?
We have already written an article telling you how to watch 9Now from abroad on your computer, but this article will give you even more detailed information on how to stream 9Now and its content on your mobile phone or tablet using the 9Now application from outside Australia.
There are a couple of problems you might bump into as you try to stream 9Now and watch content on 9Now online on your cell phone or tablet (Android or iOS), and here we will tell you about them, and how to fix them, step by step!
2020 update: This article is up to date! And, you can follow these instructions to watch 9Now on your Windows computer and Macintosh computer as well, not only on Android systems.
You need the 9Now application installed
In order to watch 9Now programs on-demand on your iOS system or Android system, you will need to install the 9Now application. That ain’t necessarily that easy, because the program is only available in the Australian Apple Store, or for Australian users in the Google Play Store. In order to get an Australian Apple ID you will need to create a new Apple ID with a user registered with an address in Australia. In order to download the 9Now application to your Android system, visit APKPure and download the most recent version of the 9Now application manually and install it.
When you try to install it you will have to accept installing software from unknown sources, but just go ahead, install and open the application.
When you have the 9Now application installed
When you have the 9Now application installed and open it, you will get an error message looking something like this is you try to use it outside Australia.
If you get the following error message (or something similar), it is because you are located outside Australia. The 9Now application should only be used in Australia, and thus you will not be able to stream The Big Bang Theory and other great 9Now content abroad. But, how can you fix this?
It might be that you will be able to open the application, but you will not be able to log in to the application as you get a message that 9Now cannot receive registrations from abroad as well.
Make the 9Now application believe that you are in Australia
If you have gotten this far, you haven’t got much left to be able to watch 9Now on your mobile device abroad. What is left is to make the 9Now application believe that you are located in Australia. This can be done by using a VPN to get an Australian IP address. But, it isn’t enough just to get an Australian IP address. As we tested with for example IPVanish we managed to get by the error message above, but the on-demand streams themselves didn’t start. They just kept loading, without starting.
The solution, however, was using the VPN services of ExpressVPN. This is a VPN provider with a 30-day full refund policy, and they are brilliant for watching 9Now from abroad (on all devices), and it can also be used to access US Netflix from abroad and so much more.
- Click the button above to sign up for ExpressVPN.
- Download the ExpressVPN application.
- Start the application and connect to a server in Australia.
- Restart the 9Now application on your Apple device or Android device.
- You can now watch all the content available in the 9Now app outside Australia.
