How To Watch NBC’s Live Stream From Any Location

By Lyn Atwood / June 21, 2017 / Tags: , ,

Here’s how to watch NBC live online from any city in the US — not just its available areas.

Watch NBC live stream from any location

Want to watch NBC’s live stream, but don’t live in one of the areas where it’s available? Then read on. You can get access to the NBC live stream from anywhere. Here’s what to do.

STEP 1) Sign up for a NordVPN account

To watch the NBC live stream from any city  you need to bypass their location detectors. The way to do this is with a VPN. A VPN will route your connection through a secure server, thus “tricking” NBC into thinking you’re in an approved area to watch its live stream.

As long as you’re connected through a VPN, you can gain instant, unlimited access to live stream all of NBC’s programming. Note that you will still need to log in with your TV provider. This is a workaround for the live stream location restrictions only.

Services like NordVPN let users bypass location restrictions on websites like NBC.

NordVPN is the best VPN we’ve found to unblock NBC and NBC Sports. First, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. So if you just need access for a short time, you can cancel and get a refund. NordVPN also has the fastest streaming speeds (other VPNs can slow your connection to a maddening crawl), super easy, works on any device, and — even better — just works with no hassle. It’s a favorite for streaming TV on all sorts of geo-blocked sites because it delivers a five-star service all around. Plus, it has the best deal — as low as $3.29/month.

Best VPNs To Unblock NBC

Using a VPN has many benefits. First, it’s not only NBC’s live stream you get access to. NordVPN works to unblock virtually every website in the world: ABC, CBS, FOX, plus tons of free UK TV channels like the BBC and ITV. It also unblocks Netflix, and other streaming services (Amazon Video, Hulu, Sling TV) so you can watch while abroad. And it’s great for streaming live sports on sites and services around the world. A VPN also prevents ISP throttling. And it’s a highly recommended online privacy and security tool to prevent data theft, spying, and tracking.

STEP 2) Download the NordVPN app

After you sign up for a 30-day trial, download the NordVPN app for the device (or devices) you want to use to watch the NBC live stream. They have great apps for every device: iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, and more. You can use up to 6 devices at once with a single NordVPN account.

STEP 3) Connect to an NordVPN server to make you invisible online

Now, use the NordVPN app to connect to a secure server. Once you’re connected, you’ll be using the internet anonymously. NBC.com won’t be able to detect where you’re located, and therefore can’t block you.

STEP 4) Start watching NBC’s live stream from anywhere

Voila! You can now live stream all your favorite NBC shows, sports, and specials. After you connect to a NordVPN server, go to http://www.nbc.com/live and start enjoying the live stream. You’ll immediately have unlimited access after you sign in with your TV provider.

Some tips: Clear the cookies on your device/computer after you connect to a NordVPN server. If you have any location services on your device, disable those. If you run into any problems, tech support will troubleshoot your particular device/operating system with you (they’re available 24/7).

Hopefully, NBC will make their live stream available in more cities, and soon. But, until then, this workaround is a simple solution. I hope you enjoy watching NBC online as much as I do.
