How To Watch Hand of God From Abroad?

If you are want to stream Hand of God from outside US then you either need to get a US IP address or change your DNS settings in such a way that Amazon allows you to watch the show. If you want to switch to a US IP address, subscribing to a renowned VPN service is your best option. As an alternative, you can subscribe to a SmartDNS service and change your DNS settings. Follow the steps given below to unblock the show from overseas:

Step 1) Choose a VPN or SmartDNS service as your content unlocking solution. Here are some reputed providers which can unlock Amazon Instant Video:

Step 2) Follow the setup instructions supplied by your service provider and configure the service on a mobile device or laptop. Most big VPN companies supply their own pre-configured VPN clients but for others you would need to configure the service manually. The manual configuration process may involve changing existing network settings or creating an entirely new Network Connection.

Step 3) Finish the setup process by saving all the changes. It is also necessary to flush out cache, cookies and old network settings by closing and restarting the Amazon Instant Video app (especially on mobile devices).

Step 4) After the setup is complete, it is time to fire up the VPN or SmartDNS service. This can be done by clicking on the desktop icon of the service or by navigating to the Network Connections/Settings area of your device.

Step 5) Once the connection is successfully established, you must check whether you have been assigned a US IP address by your service provider. This step is not needed if you configured the VPN service manually or have subscribed to a SmartDNS service. If your new IP is from outside United States, look for the nearest available US VPN server and choose it as your server of choice from the VPN client interface.

Step 6) Open the Amazon Instant Video app or browse to the Hand of God homepage on your browser. Since you have removed all traces of your real IP from your device, Amazon will allow you to stream the series from your current location.
