Thomas wants to stream 9Now abroad!
Thomas wants to stream the latest episode of Doctor Doctor on 9Now while in Austria. But, he gets an error message? What can Thomas do to watch 9Now from abroad?
Thomas likes sitting with his laptop on his lap (isn’t that why they call it a laptop?) to watch TV series and live streams of all his favorite sports. One of his favorite shows is Doctor Doctor, and he normally streams this show on the 9Now website. The only problem is that he can only stream it when in Australia, as whenever he tries to stream 9Now outside Australia, he gets the following error message.
This frustrates him, and he wants to find a way in which he can stream 9Now, also when outside Australia. So, what can he do? There are lots of other 9Now shows he might be interested in streaming as well, but neither of them can be streamed as long as he doesn't find a solution.
Thomas looks for a way to stream 9Now abroad
Thomas has been reading articles here and there, and the most common solution described is using a so-called VPN service. Thomas has a VPN subscription to the VPN provider HideMyAss, so he gives it a try, but it doesn’t work. Even though he gets an actual Australia IP address by connecting to a server in Australia, he still sees the same error message.
But, he has read on another site that this is quite common and that most VPN providers are blocked by 9Now. There is, however, an exception, and that is the VPN provider ExpressVPN.
He is a bit anxious about spending money on yet another VPN subscription, but since they have a 30-day full refund policy, he decides to give it a try anyway.
Thomas visits the ExpressVPN website, signs up for their services, and downloads their VPN application to his computer.
Thomas signs up for 12 months as it gives the best value for his money (and he can still cancel within 30-days and get all his money back).
He signs up for the 12-month package (and he gets 3 more months as a bonus for free). This is a great deal, and if it actually works, he will be happy he signed up for this package. If it doesn’t work, he will simply ask for a full refund.
He opens the ExpressVPN application and decides to connect to a server in Syndey, Australia.
Once the connection has been made, he restarts his browser, and he visits the 9Now website again. He is a bit nervous, hoping that it will actually work, but at the same time fearing that it won’t.
He visits the 9Now website, selects the most recent episode of Doctor Doctor and clicks his mouse. He waits for a few seconds, and suddenly a commercial shows up, and a few seconds later, the show starts. It worked! Thomas is happy, and he runs to grab some popcorn before continuing to stream his favorite 9Now show abroad.
Can you imagine how happy Thomas is that this worked? Due to his enthusiasm, Thomas also installed the ExpressVPN application on his Android phone to see if it worked there as well. And yes, it did! He had to download the 9Now application (.apk-file) manually, but once that was done, it all worked smoothly.
To make it even better, Thomas tried to watch Tenplay (another Australian channel with great TV shows online) using the same connection, and he couldn’t hold back his smile as this worked as well.
Hopefully, the example of Thomas will help you stream 9Now outside Australia as well. Should you have comments or questions, write them down and Thomas will do his best to help!
