From CSI:Miami to Victorias Secret or the Amazing race, CBS has a lot of different hit show that can all be watched online. Streaming is more or less the norm these days and it is quite handy if you want to keep yourself updated if you are travelling and don’t want to miss your favorite show. There is just one thing: Viewing outside the US is not working.

CBS, much like other networks, restricts access to their online streaming to US residents only. However, there is a simple way to unblock these restrictions.

Our friend VPN to the rescue

What was the name of that friend again? Virtual Private Network or VPN for short is basically a way to trick CBS into thinking you are located in the US. With a VPN connection you can connect to a server located in the US. This server will act as a middleman between you and CBS and since the connection to CBS is coming from a server within the US you can now stream all the show directly to you computer.

This might all sound very complicated, but it really isn’t. If you are able to find this website you are able to set up a connection.

How to get started with VPN

In order to connect to a VPN server you need to have an account with a VPN provider. It is very cheap and it is well worth the cost. Besides allowing you to stream content from US only sites you will experience a much more secure browsing experience online.

It can be quite a jungle to find a good and reliable provider for a VPN connection. We recommend taking a look at Unlocator (I suggest the $10 “Lite Open or PPTP” package). They are by far the fastest and most reliable player on the market and they are serving people from all over the world.

Once you have ordered the connection they will send you all the info to get started with your connection in minutes. So go take a look at their website and happy viewing.
