What To Expect From Season 7 Of The League?

Like the previous seasons, season 7 of The League focuses on a group of friends (Mark, Stephen, Nick, Paul, Jon and Katie) as they make desperate efforts to win the fantasy football league. The current season got off to a great start with the premier episode (That Other Draft) showcasing all the elements, including cameos by NFL players, witty dialogues and raunchy humor; that have made the series such a hit in the first place. Since this is the final season of the show, series creators Jeff and Jackie Schaffer are likely to unveil something special for all the fans and end the series on a memorable note.

How To Watch The League Season 7 Online?

The League is available for streaming through the FX Network website.

Fans of online streaming would be disappointed to learn that the above link works only from inside United States. When you click on the above link from any other location (with a non-US IP address), you are straightaway redirected to a “Content Unavailable” page which says

“Thank-you-for-your-interest-in-FX-Networks. The-content-you-are-trying-to-access-is-not-available-in-your-region.”

Content providers like FX often resort to such restrictive practices in order to honor their content sharing agreements as well as to conserve bandwidth. But these measures are not in the best interests of Americans who reside overseas or need to travel frequently for personal or business reasons.

How To Unblock The League From Anywhere?

Expats and business travelers who wish to unlock the latest episodes of The League from abroad must use an IP or DNS changing solution in order to bypass the strict filters used by FX. When you use a VPN or SmartDNS service to change your IP or DNS settings, you can fool streaming services like FX into thinking that you are accessing the service from US when in fact you might be located thousands of miles away from mainland United States. Here is a brief overview of how a VPN or SmartDNS service can help you to unblock The League:

Step 1) Subscribe to a fast and trustworthy VPN or SmartDNS service. Here are some good services which support FX streaming:

Step 2) Check the setup options available with the provider. If you want to stream the show on a mobile device, you may have to configure the service manually. For computers, a lot of service providers offer pre-configured VPN clients.

Step 3) After the configuration/installation is complete, it is necessary to save all the changes and restart the FX app (or the browser).

Step 4) Connect to the VPN by browsing to Network Settings area or by simply clicking on the desktop icon of the service.

Step 5) Check the location of your new IP address once the connection is established. This step is not needed if you have opted for a SmartDNS service or configured the VPN service manually. Most VPN clients include a built-in IP changing mechanism which allows you to switch servers and choose IPs from different regions/countries.

Step 6) Navigate to the above link once again and check whether you are now able to stream the latest episodes of The League. In case you come across the Content Unavailable message again, simply close and restart the FX app and remember to clear old cookies and cache from your device.
