What is NBC, and how can I watch it?

NBC is one of the classic American networks—and one of the biggest.

It’s part of the ‘Big Three’ alongside CBS and ABC. It’s responsible for massive TV hits including Saturday Night Live and This Is Us, sports staples such as Sunday Night Football, and all-time classics like Days of Our Lives.

With leading news and sports coverage, kids’ TV, entertainment and drama, NBC is the American channel with something for everyone.

The NBC network has been around throughout most of television history, founded in 1926 by RCA (Radio Corporation of America). It has grown into the giant we see on our screens today, with millions of viewers and fans alike.

For cable-cutters, the ‘Peacock Network’ has masses of content available to stream from their website or via a multitude of apps, available for a range of different devices. You’ll need your cable or satellite login to access what’s on offer, but once you’ve logged on, everything you need is free, as part of your existing subscription.

Alternatively, if you don’t have an NBC satellite or cable service subscription, you can tune into their live channels using an alternative provider. There is a healthy selection to include NBC as part of their bundle; they also include plenty of other channels, networks, shows and movies to pick your way through.

Try FuboTV, SlingTV, or AT&T TV NOW. They’ll all provide access to NBC without the hefty cable subscription.

How can I watch NBC with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator removes the block that prevents you from streaming NBC from outside the US. No matter where you are in the world, our smart router provides you with a location inside the USA. We create the link that the servers at NBC need to open up their channels and all of their content.

No complicated settings or software installation required

Unlike many other methods, to get around the blockades the servers put in place, StreamLocator keeps everything as simple as possible. We don’t expect our users to have to install software onto their computers or devices. Nor do we need you to adjust your network settings, change DNS details or add new profiles.

StreamLocator is always on and working in the background and with any of your Internet-enabled devices. That’s right. It works seamlessly with your Mac or PC, your Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV systems. It will also manage the streams to your Apple and Android smartphones, and into your games consoles. All without you lifting a finger.

Even better, it doesn’t alter your Internet speed in the slightest, neither will it affect any of your day-to-day online activity.

You can access it from anywhere in your home, and what’s more, you can connect as many devices as you like; each to a different streaming service and in a different country if you need to. StreamLocator handles each relocation effortlessly, all at the same time.

How to watch NBC from outside the USA

The technology NBC and other streaming providers use, to make sure their viewers are in the USA, is known as geolocation tracking. The system pinpoints each user to a precise location. If you’re not in the US, then you don’t get access to the NBC shows and content.

The most common methods used to navigate the geolocation blockades are VPN or Smart DNS services. If you’re going to access NBC, then you’re going to need something just like one of those.

How to register for NBC from outside the USA

For US residents with the appropriate cable subscription—out of the country for whatever reason—all you need is a way to get around the location blocks NBC has set in place. For anyone else, you’re going to need a subscription to one of the services that feature NBC as part of its package.

Sling TV, FuboTV or AT&T TV NOW all include NBC as part of their bundle. Signing up to one of those is relatively straightforward and they each offer a variety of subscription options and prices. All you have to do is pick which one is the best for you.

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

To get around the geolocation blocks set up by NBC, or their alternative network providers, VPN and DNS services can provide viewers with the access they want.

Depending on the servers and the service, one might work better than another. In fact, when it comes to VPN options, each service will perform differently, depending on the quality of operation, the servers they reroute you through, and whether their servers are recognised by NBC detection or not. One VPN might work for one channel and be blocked by another.

As you can see, it’s not as simple as you’d like it to be.

That’s why we created the best all-round solution to your problems. Because our system works on a combination of geo-blocking tech solutions, StreamLocator will always find the best way to access the channels you need.

It detects each of the different servers’ requirements to be able to provide precisely what they need. You get access to whatever you want without lifting a finger. StreamLocator does all this in the background without you even knowing it.

How to unblock NBC

Unblocking NBC is simple wherever you are with StreamLocator. Just plug in our smart router box and off you go. Okay, we’ll need a few details to activate your account, and you’ll have to switch your WiFi network over from your usual provider to your new STREAMLOCATOR option, but that’s child’s play.

And that’s all there is to it. Load up whatever channel you want, on whichever system you prefer, and we take care of all the hard work for you.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch NBC for free?

Unfortunately, unless you already have a cable or satellite subscription that covers NBC, then you’re going to need to pay for a provider that does. StreamLocator can provide the easiest possible access to many of the leading streaming services, but it can’t sidestep their payment gateways.
