If you’re away on vacation or just temporarily overseas when the show premieres, do not panic! You can still watch Watchmen online as it happens (or on catch up). Using a little handy trick, you can get around geo-restrictions and digital borders that would usually get in the way by using a VPN.
This will allow you to gain access to all the dramatic Watchmen episodes as they happen without even having to be in one of the countries its airing in by changing your IP. That way you can watch the show while abroad.
Which VPN is best for you? Our personal favourite is ExpressVPN. And how do you use that to watch Watchmen online? Read on to find out all you need to know.
The easiest way to stream Watchmen outside the countries mentioned below is to download and install a VPN with a 30-day money back guarantee or free trial.
