With Epix HD you can watch more than 3000 different movies in HD by streaming them from the Epix streaming service. However only US residents can use the service. However I have a smart little trick that will allow you to make Epix think that you are in fact American no matter where in the world you are.
The problem is that Epix can detect your location via your IP-address, which is a number that is assigned to you automatically by your Internet Provider. When you try to access the site from outside the US you will see this message on the top right where you will usually find the login and sign up buttons:” Only US Residents can Sign In / Sign Up”. So what you need to do is fake your location and make Epix think that you are American.
Faking Location to Watch Epix HD
Faking your location is done by connecting to what is known as a Virtual Private Network. As a result you will inherit the IP-address from the VPN network and if connected to a server in the US this IP-address will be American and you can thus sign up and use Epix outside the US.
Setting up VPN is pretty easy regardless of you computer skills – if you can use Facebook you can setup a VPN connection as well. I suggest using Unlocator which is my personal favorite. Their application allows you to select a city/country and the connect to a server in this location – a couple of seconds later your new virtual location is ready and the next time you connect to Epix you can now either sign up or login. If you don’t have an account already simply sign up for one. Just remember to use an American zip code like 90210 and then choose a random provider from the drop down.
That is all there is to it really – it is also important to mention that this method will work with all US only services, so you can use your VPN connection to unblock all sorts of cool US only services that you come across. Besides a VPN connection will encrypt you data connection making it harder for hackers to attack you and steal your personal info – just and added benefit of using VPN. Anyhow if you wanted to watch Epix HD outside the US you now know how to go about it – have fun.
