One of the new big contenders on the video on demand market is Cinema Now from Best Buy. The service is available in the US only unless you use the following trick.

Just like many other US only services Cinema Now will determine your location by taking a look a your computers IP-address. If they detect that you are outside the US you will be blocked from using the service. So what you need to do is make Cinema Now think that you are located in the US.

Fake Your Location to Watch Cinema Now Anywhere in the World

The only way to do this is by using a VPN provider that will allow you to connect to a server in the US. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and will allow you to connect to a US server that will act as a middleman between you and Cinema Now. Once connected to such a network you will appear to be located in the US.

Since video streaming requires a lot of bandwidth you need a good provider. I prefer Unlocator as setting up the connection is really easy. Simply download their app for Mac or PC and select a server in the US and click connect. That is all there is to it and you can now sign up for an account with Cinema Now.

When you create an account make sure to use a US address. You can simply google for one as it is only used for billing purposes. Note it down as you need it when you sign up and again when you make your first purchase. After that you can opt in and allow the system to save your data.

That is all there is to it if you want to use Cinema Now abroad. Simply fake your location by using Unlocator and then sign up and stream away. Happy viewing.
