Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Hemlock Grove is a popular horror-thriller TV series from Netflix that made its debut in April, 2013. The series was developed by Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman with Eli Roth (director of Cabin Fever and Hostel series) acting as the executive producer. The series is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name and all its episodes were made available for online viewing by Netflix. The series proved to be immensely popular and even helped Netflix earn Emmy Award nomination for original online-only TV series.

The Story Of Hemlock Grove

The story is set in Hemlock Grove, a small town in Pennsylvania. The town has seen better days but the closure of its steel mill has caused several residents to lose their jobs. Now, most town folks work at Godfrey Institute of Biomedical Technologies or Hemlock Acres Hospital to sustain themselves. The Godfrey Institute is managed by the rich and powerful Godfrey family and is believed to be a facade for sinister and macabre experiments. When two teenage girls are brutally killed, the town’s rumor mill goes into overdrive and the suspicion falls on Peter Rumancek who may or may not be a werewolf. How the heir to Godfrey estate and Peter Rumancek find the killer(s) forms the crux of the story.

Hemlock Grove Availability

Hemlock Grove is available for online viewing through the Netflix streaming service. As you might be aware, Netflix is available only within US, Canada, UK, Sweden, Ireland, Finland, Norway, Denmark and selected American and Carribbean countries. In addition, not all movies and TV shows available on Netflix’s US site are available for viewing in all regions. For example, when people try to access Hemlock Grove’s latest episodes from outside US, they will come across the message – “Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet.” Naturally the expats, students and travelers have to bear the brunt of such restrictions since they are not able to watch their favorite shows and movies even after paying money to Netflix.

How Netflix Is Able To Block Visitors

Netflix is able to block people from accessing the content available on its site just by looking at their IP addresses. Everyone connected to the internet has a unique IP address which can immediately reveal the location of the person. In order to access Hemlock Grove’s episodes outside US, you will have to use an IP changing service like a proxy or VPN which can give you a US IP address. A VPN is considered a better IP changing option since it delivers fast speeds and protects your real IP address at all times.

How To Watch Hemlock Grove From Anywhere With A VPN

Step 1: Subscribe to a reliable VPN service that provides US IP addresses. There are many well-established VPN providers like ExpressVPNVyprVPNOverplayPureVPNInvisible BrowsingHideMyAss and IPVanish that have servers in US and provide high speeds required to stream TV shows like Hemlock Grove.

Step 2: Download the VPN client or setup the VPN service manually as per the instructions provided. For mobile devices, there is no installation required but you do have to create a new VPN connection and configure it.

Step 3: Save the changes and restart your computer if necessary. For mobile devices, you just need to save the changes and restart the Netflix app in order to use the new network settings.

Step 4: Click on the VPN icon on the desktop or tap on the Connect button next to the VPN connection name to connect to the newly created service.

Step 5: Once the connection is established, make sure that you are connected to a US server. Most VPN providers have servers in more than one country so you will have to connect to a US server in order to access the Netflix site. If your VPN provider has several servers in US then choose a server which is not overloaded and is located nearest to your present location.

Step 6: Connect to the Netflix site again and check whether you are able to watch the episodes of Hemlock Grove. Mobile users need to close and restart the Netflix app to unlock the latest and past episodes of Hemlock Grove. If you face speed or connectivity issues, make sure to contact the support staff of your VPN provider.
