You can watch Funimation if you're away from the U.S. too! We'll tell you how alongside other details about the entertainment platform.

This article will show you how to see Funimation if you’re not in the US. Whatever reason that has brought you overseas, you probably miss the joy of watching Funimation, your favorite video streaming platform, right? Funimation is the home of YuYu Hakusho, Death Note, Soul Eater, One Piece, Hetalia, Attack on Titan, Fary Tale, Alchemist, Fullmetal, and how could we possibly forget Dragon Ball Z! And that’s just the point of the iceberg! The anime catalog in Funimation is broad, which is why it’s such a big name in online video! And the best is that many of those beloved series are free of charge!

An awful reality about Funimation is that it’s not available for users of every country. To enjoy it, you must be in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, or the United States. But die-hard anime fans live everywhere, not just in those countries! So if you are elsewhere and you want to see Funimation’s content anyway, we’ve got excellent news for you: you can! All you will need is access to a good, commercial VPN service on the device you want to use to see these shows.

Without the VPN, if you’re not in one of the countries we mentioned, you will run into the message, “Sorry, but this content isn’t available in our country.” 

The thing is: The Internet knows no borders, and neither should you. So we’ll show you how to use a different digital passport that will grant you access to Funimation. (And to many other geo-blocked video streaming platforms, too, if you should like to use them.)

Watching Funimation outside the US – The Quick Guide

If you’re in a hurry, are already familiar with VPNs, and you just want to get the gist of this article, here is the quick guide to unlock Funimation from any country in the world. If you need more information and details, skip this section and keep reading.

  1. Sign up for a premium VPN (NordVPN is the best one). Then, download and install the relevant apps for the computer or device you intend to use.
  2. Open your VPN app, and provide your credential to sign in.
  3. From the server list, pick a VPN server based in the US.
  4. Point your browser towards Funimation.com and start watching!

So why do I need a VPN for Funimation if I’m not in the US?

So now you know the essential procedure that will make Funimation available to you wherever you are.

Funimation has geo-location restrictions, which is why it’s no longer available for users outside a handful of countries. But a VPN solves this problem for you, and you can watch Funimation Australia, Ireland, or the US, depending on the server location you pick within your VPN.
