Wayward-Pines is a drama, mystery and sci-fi television series which premiered on Fox in May’ 2015. Based on the Wayward-Pines series of novels by Blake Crouch, the television series debuted to mostly favorable reviews from critics and audiences. The first season of Wayward Pines concluded in July’ 2015 but there are strong indications that the series may come back next year.

Wayward Pines Storyline

The series revolves around Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (played by Matt Dillon) who visits the small but mysterious town, Wayward Pines; to investigate the disappearance his 2 colleagues. Although the town seems peaceful and idyllic at first, Ethan soon learns that it is ruled by an iron fist by the Town Sheriff Arnold Pope (played by Terrence Howard). When Ethan discovers that one of his colleagues has died under mysterious circumstances, he has to make some hard choices to remain alive.

How To Watch Wayward Pines

The first season of Wayward Pines can be accessed through the following link here.

While people from all over the world can visit the above link to learn more about Wayward Pines, the series episodes can be streamed only by the American audiences. This is because content providers like Fox usually sign content sharing agreements with local channels and service providers in many different countries. Due to these agreements, Fox is legally not allowed to show the series through any medium outside US. To enforce these restrictions, Fox scans IP addresses of its visitors and redirects them to a Content Unavailable page in case someone from outside US tries to streaming the episodes online. If you try to stream Wayward Pines episodes with a non-US IP address, you will come across this message “The-video-you-are-attempting-to-watch-is-only-available-to-viewers-within-the-US,-US-territories,-and-military-bases.”

How To Bypass GEO-IP restrictions and Watch Wayward Pines From Anywhere?

If you want to watch your favorite Fox shows (including Wayward Pines) even while travelling outside US, you would need to virtually reside in United States. This can be achieved by changing the IP address provided by your local ISP and switching to a US based IP. While all this sounds complicated, in reality there are easy to implements solutions (such as proxies, VPNs and SmartDNS services) available that can change your IP in less than a minute. Proxies are usually associated with slow speeds plus they could be blocked by content providers so my recommendation would be to use a SmartDNS or VPN service to unlock Wayward Pines. Here are the simple steps that allow you to unblock the series from any location:

Step 1) Choose a VPN or SmartDNS service which allows subscribers to switch to US IPs. Since you need ultra-fast speeds to support Netflix HD streaming, my recommendation would be to stick to the following service providers:

Step 2) Once your subscription is confirmed, you would need to set up the service on the device of your choice. While most VPN providers offer proprietary clients to their customers, SmartDNS subscribers often need to change their network settings manually.

Step 3) Save the changes to finish the installation process. Depending on your device and service, you may also have to reboot the machine and restart the Fox app.

Step 4) Initiate the VPN connection by clicking on the desktop VPN icon or by navigating to the network connections section of your device.

Step 5) After the connection is established, make sure to double check that you are indeed connected to a US VPN server. Since big VPN providers have servers at dozens of places, their default server (the service to which you connect to after establishing the connection) may not be in United States. If the default server is indeed from some other country, switch to a US server by browsing through the list of available servers. Make sure to choose a US VPN server which happens to be nearest to your current location.

Step 6) Visit the Wayward Pines page on the Fox site and click on the Play button to stream the videos. In case you face any difficulty, ensure that you have discarded the old network and IP settings by clearing your browsing history and by closing and restating the Fox app. You should now be able to stream Wayward Pines from any geographical area in the world.
