2 Broke Girls is a situational comedy TV series that made its debut on the CBS channel in September’ 2011. The series was created by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings and produced by Warner Bros. Television. 2 Broke Girls has garnered fairly positive reviews from the critics as well as viewers during its first two seasons. The series has even won People’s Choice and Emmy awards in 2012 and was renewed for its third season in 2013.

2 Broke Girls Plot And Storyline

2 Broke Girls revolves around the lives of Max Black (played by Kat Dennings) and Caroline Channing (played by Beth Behrs) who wait tables at a retro-hip diner. Max is from a poor background while Caroline is facing financial problems because her father was caught running a Ponzi scheme. The two of them strike an unlikely friendship and hope to launch their own cupcake shop but first they must raise the startup money required for their venture.

2 Broke Girls Availability

2 Broke Girls is telecast on Monday nights on the CBS channel. The series is also available online through the CBS portal (cbs.com/shows/2_broke_girls/) to US residents. International viewers (including US expats and tourists) cannot watch the show online and will come across the message – “The video you have requested is not available for your geographic region” whenever they try to access 2 Broke Girls episodes online.

How CBS Blocks Access To 2 Broke Girls Online

CBS has signed content sharing agreements with several channels and content providers (TV4 in Sweden, Channel 4 in UK, City Channel in Canada) to distribute 2 Broke Girls outside US. To enforce these agreements online, CBS scans the IP address of people visiting its portal and allows only viewers with a valid US IP address to watch full episodes and exclusive videos related to the show.

In order to unlock 2 Broke Girls from any location, you must change your IP address and get a US based IP with the help of an IP changing service. There are several popular IP changing solutions like Proxies and Virtual Private Networks available that can help you to get a US IP address regardless of your current location. Although proxies are popular and cheaper, you must use a robust IP changing solution like a VPN to unlock streaming services online since VPNs provide better speeds and do not leak your real IP address under any circumstances.

How To Unlock 2 Broke Girls From Overseas With A VPN

Step 1: Subscribe to a US VPN service from a well-known vendor like Kepard, BolehVPN, SwitchVPN, CactusVPN or PureVPN. We recommend these companies because they deliver a fast and stable VPN service and provide IP addresses from several US states and cities.

Step 2: Download and install the VPN client or setup the service manually on your Smartphone, tablet or computer. Usually the custom VPN clients are available for Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8) based computers while manual setup is required for other operating systems and devices.

Step 3: As soon as the setup is complete, save the new network parameters. If you installed the VPN software on your system then you may need to restart your computer as well. For mobile devices, saving the new connection details is usually enough but you may need to close and restart the official CBS app so that it can use the latest network configuration and play 2 Broke Girls episodes without any issues.

Step 4: Click on Start menu and then on the VPN connection name in order to connect to the service. If you configured the service on your tablet or Smartphone then you just need to tap on Connect button located below the VPN Connection name in order to establish a connection with the VPN service. Wait for few seconds in case the service doesn’t connect immediately as the connection time depends on your location and internet speed.

Step 5: Next, check whether you have been assigned a US IP address by the service. This step is optional if you configured the service manually since you would have specified the server IP address or URL at the time of creating the connection itself. However, if you installed the VPN client on your machine then it is possible that the service might connect to its default server first (which may not be from US). In such cases, you need to locate and use a US based server from the list of available servers. Also, remember to choose a server that is geographically close to your current address so that you can enjoy CBS shows at best streaming speeds.

Step 6: Navigate to CBS website again and click on 2 Broke Girls episode names in order to watch them. For unlocking the episodes through mobile devices, you need to restart the CBS app after you have changed the IP address. Congratulations, you should now be able to watch the latest episodes of 2 Broke Girls from any geographical region in the world.
