How to watch Redbox Instant from abroad?

In our days when everyone speak about Netflix, Redbox is a quite similar service, though still quite different. It started in the spring of 2013, and it has gotten quite popular. Now, if you are a Redbox user, maybe even with a subscription, then you will get very frustrated as you get the following error message as you try to watch from abroad.

So, to fix this problem you need to make Redbox believe that you actually are in the United States. It might sound hard, but it isn not hard at all. If you live outside the United States, but want to create a Redbox subsription and use the services, just follow the same steps, and you will be able to sign up and watch the films, dvds and programs available.

Redbox Instant from AbroadTo watch Redbox, just like you need to watch your US Netflix account from abroad, you are in need of an American IP address. This can be acquired easily as you use a VPN service offering IP addreses in the USA. Mostly all providers do, so that should not be a problem. The prices of the different providers to change, but in general a VPN subscription cost around 10 USD a month, and if you sign up for a year it gets cheaper.

Watch RedBox with one of the following VPN providers

We just tried to watch RedBox from Europe using the VPN services of HideMyAss and VyprVPN. Both worked fine, even though we had better speeds using VyprVPN in the start. However with HideMyAss using virtual servers in Europe giving better download speeds (if you are located in Europe) that seems promising and worth a try, however at the time we tried it not all their servers worked with Redbox. But, no risk at all; HideMyAss has a 30 day money back guarantee and VyprVPN has 7 day money back guarantee.
