Friday, April 8th, 2016

Into the Badlands is an action, drama and sci-fi TV series which premiered on the AMC channel in November’ 2015. The series is based on the Chinese classical novel Journey to the West and is being promoted as genre-bending martial arts TV series. Although the series has received mixed reviews, most critics have praised its kinetic action sequences. In this article, you will learn how to watch Into the Badlands from any part of the world with the help of a VPN or SmartDNS service.

Where and How To Watch Into the Badlands?

Apart from watching the series on TV, you have the option of streaming the series via the following link: http://www.amc.com/shows/into-the-badlands

Bear in mind that the above link is only meant for American viewers. When people from outside America try to stream the series, they merely see the following message:


These types of streaming restrictions exist because AMC has signed broadcasting agreements with several different content providers (Showcase for Australia, Amazon Prime for United Kingdom) to distribute the series abroad. These content sharing agreements prohibit AMC from telecasting the show in territories outside United States. To prevent people from watching the show online, AMC checks the IP address of all the viewers and only permits those having US IPs to stream the series’ episodes.

How To Unblock Into the Badlands Outside US?

If you want to stream the series regardless of your current location then you must hide your real IP address from AMC and switch to a US IP address. Although this sounds difficult, it is easily achievable via VPNs and SmartDNS solutions. Here is a step-by-step guide for unlocking the series from any part of the world:

Step 1) Check out the features offered by different VPN/SmartDNS service providers and subscribe to a service which suits your needs. If you have no idea about such services, here are some vendors that allow you to stream AMC shows from anywhere:

Step 2) After subscribing to the service, you need to configure it on your computer or mobile device. The setup requires changing the existing network settings of the device. Most vendors offer detailed setup instructions to configure the service and some of them even provide a readymade client that can be installed in few clicks.

Step 3) Save the changes in order to finalize the new network settings. In addition, remember to close and restart the AMC app so that it recognizes the new network parameters and starts using them.

Step 4) Once the setup is complete, you can run the service by clicking on its icon. If you have configured the service manually then you may have to navigate to Network Connections area in order to start the service.

Step 5) After the connection is successful, you will get a new IP address from your service provider. Before you try to stream AMC shows, I would recommend verifying the location of your new IP address. Since many companies have deployed their default servers outside America, you may get a non-US IP address upon connecting to the service. If this happens, switch to a US server manually.

Step 6) Visit the AMC website once again with the AMC app or your favorite browser. Since the roadblocks which prevented you from watching the series have been removed, you should be able to watch the show’s episodes without facing any problems.
