Here’s How to Watch the 2018 American Music Awards for FREE
Counting the days till the next American Music Awards? So are we! The event will be broadcast live on ABC on October 9.
However, if you’re outside the US, streaming the 2018 American Music Awards live can be tricky, if not impossible, due to geoblocks which restrict the ABC live stream to American viewers only.
So, does this mean that if you are outside America, you have to rely on reruns and highlights? Absolutely not – if you have a good VPN.
Quick Guide: How to Watch the 2018 American Music Awards from outside the US
- Sign up for a VPN account (Wondering which one to get? NordVPN is the absolute best.)
- Download the software and install on your computer or device of your choice.
- If you don’t have a Hulu account, go to PayPal gift cards and purchase a Hulu gift card (more details below).
- Connect to a VPN server in the US.
- Go to the ABC website, choose Hulu as our provider and log in.
- Sit back and enjoy the show!
Watch the American Music Awards Anywhere with a VPN
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) changes your IP address so that it appears if you are in a different location.
This gives you access to geo-restricted channels and content, including ABC. Using a VPN also means that you benefit from high levels of encryption. This keeps your identity anonymous and your online activities protected.
For those that are new to VPNs and their many benefits, our VPN guide can walk you through it all.
Unfortunately, not all VPNs are able to access geo-restricted content successfully. Before the show or event, it’s important to take some time to research the providers who do offer this service, and which ones can specifically access US content (the good ones can access Netflix).
Below is our list of tried and tested VPNs for unblocking US geo-restricted content.
