Earlier, various websites used to compete on the internet to become the world’s premier film database. But then, the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), which rebranded itself to FreeVee in April 2022, appeared and quickly drove everybody else out of business. Since then, IMDb has been the Wikipedia of movies. Whereas its streaming service, IMDb TV, enjoys a huge customer base in and outside the US.
However, this global customer base can’t enjoy watching their desired media on IMDb TV due to content restrictions. Sound disappointing? Don’t worry. Read along to learn how to unblock and watch IMDb TV (now Freevee) outside the US with a VPN.
How to watch Freevee from anywhere quickly
If you’re in a hurry and need to get the beef quickly, here’s the quick guide to unlocking IMDb’s streaming service from any location in the world:
- Get a VPN account. If you’re still undecided, pick NordVPN. The high speeds in this network will give you an excellent, buffering-less viewing experience, along with many other exciting features.
- Launch your connection to the VPN. This is when you choose a server in the network, so make sure to pick one in the UK or the US. This is the crucial step for unlocking IMDb content.
- Point your browser to the Freevee website, log in, and start watching your favorite series and movies to your heart’s content!
How can a VPN help you enjoy IMDb TV wherever you are?
Mainly because of licensing and copyright issues, almost every video platform on the internet has geo-blocks in place for the content they offer. So, expectedly, IMDb TV also typically streams only to UK and US users and not anywhere outside these regions.
Nonetheless, VPNs can help you bypass geo-blocks, thus granting you the access you want to IMDb TV as if you were in one of the allowed countries.
Here’s how a VPN works: you pick a server on your VPN’s network and connect to it. All your traffic will go through the VPN server from that moment. The VPN encrypts all of your incoming and outgoing traffic. And it shows the world an IP address assigned to you by the server. As a result, whenever you connect to a website, it sees the VPN’s IP as yours. And that IP address will belong to the country in which your chosen server is.
You’d need to pick a server from the US or the UK to see Freevee TV videos in your specific case. So then, your server connects you to the Amazon website hosting the content. (Or, if you’re using an app, it will go through the VPN server as well). Then, Amazon will see your connection as originating from the US or the UK, depending on your server, and will give you full access to its video catalog.
