Monday, December 14th, 2015

Beyond the Tank is a reality TV series which made its debut on ABC in May’ 2015. The series is actually a follow-up series to the reality show Shark Tank and it follows the progress of entrepreneurs who pitched their business ideas to potential investors in that show. The series opened to good response which prompted ABC to renew it for a second season. The second season of the series will premiere on 29th September’ 2015.

What To Expect From Beyond the Tank?

Beyond the Tank is a worthy follow up to Shark Tank. The series shows what happened to entrepreneurs who appeared on that show and went on to start their own business ventures. The series not only shows the progress of those whose business ideas found favor among the investors but also of those who ideas were rejected right away. If you are a fan of Shark Tank and want to learn how sharks do their business then this show is for you.

How To Watch Beyond the Tank Online?

As well as watching the show on TV, you can also watch all the episodes of the series via the following link:

Like all the other shows airing of ABC, Beyond the Tank is available only to American audience. International viewers who try to stream the series online see this 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”.

These type of geographical restrictions are commonplace as far as On-Demand streaming services are concerned. Since content providers like ABC sign content licensing agreements with many international TV channels, they are forbidden from telecasting/streaming their shows outside a specific country/geographical region. This is indeed a big setback for the expat community who are deprived of their daily dose of entertainment just because they happen to have a non-US IP address.

How To Unblock Beyond the Tank From Anywhere?

For unblocking Beyond the Tank from outside United States, you need to resort to some technical wizardry and hide your real IP address from ABC. This can be achieved by switching to US IPs via a VPN service or changing the DNS settings through a SmartDNS service. Here are the easy steps which can help you to achieve this:

Step 1) Get a subscription of a well-known VPN or SmartDNS service. Here are some services which fit the bill perfectly:

Step 2) Follow the setup instructions provided by your service provider to configure the service on a computer or mobile device. In case the company doesn’t offer an installable client, you need to alter the network settings to configure the VPN or SmartDNS service.

Step 3) Save the changes and restart the machine if recommended by your service provider. For mobile devices, it is usually sufficient to close and restart the ABC app for streaming ABC shows.

Step 4) Once the setup is done, it is time to test the service. Start the service by clicking the new VPN icon which appears on the desktop or by tapping on the VPN connection name in the Network Connections area.

Step 5) If the connection is successful, it is time to check the location of the IP address provided by your VPN company. A lot of VPN companies have deployed their main (or default) servers in Europe so you need to be absolutely sure of your new IP’s location to be able to unlock US-only content. If the IP happens to be from Europe or Asia, simply choose a US IP by browsing through the list of available servers and choosing the nearest US VPN server.

Step 6) Open the default browser and navigate to the above link once again. Alternatively, you can fire up the ABC app and visit the homepage of Beyond the Tank to stream its episodes.
