Friday, August 30th, 2013

Twisted is a mystery-drama television series that made its debut in June, 2013. The series was created by Adam Milch for ABC Family TV channel. Twisted has received good response from critics (score of 66 on Metacritic) as well as audiences (7.5 rating on IMDB). The show is noted for its twisted teen drama and is expected to continue in the next season as well.

Twisted Storyline and Plot

Twisted tells the story of Danny Desai (played by Avan Jogia) who murdered his aunt when he was just 11. After he is released from juvenile detention, Danny comes back to his hometown, Green Grove, and tries to reconnect with his two best friends who happen to be girls. When a classmate is murdered in her own house, Danny becomes prime suspect and finds that the people of the town would stop at nothing to send him behind bars. Can Danny clear his name while keeping a veil of secrecy on why he killed his aunt?

Twisted Availability

Twisted is telecast on ABC Family TV channel. The latest (as well as the past) episodes of the show are also available online through the ABC Family portal (abcfamily.go.com). However, there is a big limitation associated with ABC Family portal; it is not yet available outside United States. What this means is that the expats and travelers would not be able to watch the episodes of Twisted online if they try to connect to the ABC site from a different country. Even when they connect to the site, they will only see the message – “You appear to be outside the United States or its territories. Due to international rights agreements, we only offer this video to viewers located within the United States and its territories”.

How ABC Family Prevents People From Accessing Twisted Online And How To Bypass Such Restrictions?

The ABC Family portal checks the IP address of each and every visitor before they are allowed to watch full episodes and videos. As you might be aware, your IP address can tell your location information to content providers such as ABC as soon as you connect to the site. And since ABC is aware of its visitors’ location, it can easily block international visitors from accessing specific shows and videos.

To watch Twisted online from outside US, you need to hide your real IP address from ABC and change it to a US based IP with the help of an IP changing service. While this may sound like technical mumbo-jumbo, in reality IP changing services like proxies and VPNs are extremely user friendly and can be used even by tech novices. If you are planning to use an IP changing service to watch ABC shows, make sure to use a VPN instead of a proxy since VPNs offer better speeds and even shield your real IP address with high-tech encryption.

How To Watch Twisted Online From Overseas With A VPN

Step 1: The very first step is to look for a VPN service provider with a server in USA. For unblocking Twisted, you can select unlimited bandwidth and speed plans from  proXPN, ExpressVPN, PureVPN, Invisible Browsing, and Kepard. Each of these VPN sellers are well known for their high speed US VPN plans and are in a position to deliver best data transfer rates and anonymity required for online streaming websites like ABC Family.

Step 2: Download the VPN application from the VPN provider’s site and install it as per the instructions available or simply configure the Virtual Private Network by editing the network settings. With regards to handheld mobile devices like tablets and Smartphones, there is typically no software installation required but you must configure the VPN service manually by adding a new connection. Most VPN providers provide detailed installation guides on their websites so make sure to choose the most appropriate setup method available for your current OS and device.

Step 3: Save the new network settings and reboot your computer or laptop if required. For mobile devices, you simply need to save the updates and close and start the ABC Family application to use the latest network settings.

Step 4: Connect to the newly installed VPN service by clicking on the Connect option or on the Virtual Private Network icon. Depending upon your internet speed and current location, it might take few moments for any VPN service to pick the default VPN server.

Step 5: Do not forget to pick a US server if your default server is not from the region. Almost all VPN providers have servers at numerous locations which implies that you would be required to choose a server from US manually to be able to unblock Twisted episodes. In the event that the VPN vendor has lots of VPN servers within US, look for a server which is nearest to your present address to get faster streaming and buffering speeds.

Step 6: Visit the ABC Family web-site again and test if you are able to watch the latest episodes of Twisted. To watch the episodes from tablets and Smartphones, close the ABC Family native app and start it again to unblock all the features. If you face any connectivity or speed problem, don’t forget to contact your VPN company to get the issue resolved. Congratulations, you can now unlock the latest episodes of Twisted from just about any location in the world.
