How to watch NBC from abroad? (2022 version)

NBC is an amazing channel with some fantastic TV shows. Their content is mostly free online, however, it is blocked with a geo-block, meaning that you will only be able to watch it from inside the USA.

If you try to watch NBC from outside the USA you will get a message similar to this: “We’re sorry, but the clip you selected isn’t available from your location. Please select another clip.

The principle if you want to watch NBC from abroad is the same as when you want to watch CBS from abroad. You will need to get hold of an IP address in the United States to watch the show, because once you have that, all servers on the Internet, including the NBC server, will believe that you watch the programs from inside the USA and thus you will be able to watch the different episodes of your favorite programs again.

The best way to get an IP address in the United States is by signing up for a subscription with a VPN provider. When you use such a provider you can connect to a server in the USA which will encrypt your Internet connection and give you an IP in the USA within seconds. It is safe and it is very easy.
