How to watch ABC from anywhere in the world

What is ABC, and how can I watch it?

American Broadcasting Company more popularly known as ABC is an American broadcast network that produces some of the most popular TV shows in the United States.

ABC has launched its own platform for customers to watch their favorite shows for free with the option to watch more up to date content with a cable subscription.

ABC’s app is available on a vast variety of devices that include Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Firestick, Roku, Samsung Smart TV with the option of mobile apps that allow you to continue watching while on the move.

How can I watch ABC with StreamLocator?

Our smart router and apps supplies an American location to unlock ABC’s server requirements. If you want to watch ABC’s live streams or back catalogue, you’ll need to appear as though you’re in the USA. StreamLocator helps you do just that.

No complicated settings or software installation required

One thing we know about our users is that they like to keep things simple. Well, so do we. We understand that nobody wants to have to follow complicated procedures or install new software; especially not on each of the computers and devices, they plan to view ABC.

So we make sure they don’t have to.

There isn’t any software to install, nor do we expect you to update network settings, add DNS profiles or anything else.

All we need you to do is plug in our smart hub and activate your account. We take care of everything else.

Because our smart hub works with your router, it does so seamlessly with your Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Mac or PC, Apple or Android smartphones/tablets and even Xbox and Playstation consoles.

It won’t affect your Internet speeds or any of your usual online activities. It plugs into all existing WiFi routers, creating a link from anywhere in your home. And it works with as many devices as you connect—all at the same time, each with a different location and service if that’s what you need.

It does everything you need, and without you even knowing it’s doing it.

How to watch ABC from outside the USA

Online streaming services are bound by programming rights issues that vary from country to country. Because of that, the providers use geolocation tracking to pinpoint where their online viewers are. If they’re not in the right location—the United States in ABC’s case—then their viewing gets blocked.

The most common way to get around the blockade is to use a VPN or Smart DNS service and provide a fake location.

How to register for ABC from outside the USA

Registration is easy. ABC offer customers to view thousands of hours worth of content free without signing up for an ABC account. They also have the option for customers who wish to watch their content for free to sign up for an account so your viewing experience is linked across all your devices.

Newer content or live channels requires you to have a cable TV subscription linked to your account. Streaming services like Direct TV Stream, Hulu, Sling TV and FuboTV can be used for this so if you already have an account with them linking is very easy.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch ABC from outside the USA?

You’ll need some kind of geolocation workaround to provide a US location. Without one, you won’t be able to watch ABC via its apps or website.

VPN and Smart DNS are the most accepted ways; however, they’ll provide mixed results depending on which one you choose. The TV providers are becoming wise to the many different fixes and developing more ways to cut them from the system.

Some VPN’s will provide really slow connections; depending on which servers they use to piggyback your programming.

StreamLocator works using a combination of technologies, so it always knows the best way to connect you. It makes all the calculations for you so you can concentrate on what to watch, and enjoy your viewing.

If you want a sure-fire way to provide a suitable location, every time, with no loss in service, there’s only one choice.

How to unblock ABC

With your StreamLocator smart hub, getting past the geolocation blockades is simple. Just plug it into any free port on your WiFi router, and follow the few simple steps to activate your account.

Once that’s sorted, use your new STREAMLOCATOR network to connect your device to the WiFi. And that’s it. ABC is yours to enjoy.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch ABC for free?
