TV Sports and More While Abroad



Sharp AQUOS LCD TV

Does not matter if you are in the Philippines or any Global location you can watch your favorite shows.


When I first moved to the Philippines I realized that I was missing out on TV to pass the time.  All my favorite police shows and just some regular mindless entertainment to pass the time.  I explored many way to obtain these shows.  I even wrote a program that allowed you to watch shows.  Sometimes it all seemed just to difficult to make it happen.  Being an American and living in the US I wanted an option that I could watch Hulu, CBS, Netflix and the likes.  Yet I wanted it simple.  I began to explore various options that are available  to me.

The first option was USTV Now.  It is a website that is dedicated to live streaming of TV shows.  It gives you the free to air channels (ABC,NBC, FOX, CW and PBS) all free.  Then for a price you can get a DVR to record them and playback later.  It also has an option to get some of the premium channels again there is a cost for that service.  

The other option I find most appealing is using a VPN (virtual private network).  This will give you a location in the US and you are able to watch Hulu, Netflixs and CBS and much other content.  The problem with a VPN is they cost money.  However I have found in this article a way you can get a VPN for free.  

I was able this past weekend to watch the Super Bowl and looking forward to the NBA, Nascar, and MLB come the spring.  Plus I never miss an episode of Criminal Minds.

So enjoy.
