What To Expect From The Flash?

Barry Allen is a social outcast who is obsessed with solving the mystery behind his mother’s murder. When an advanced particle accelerator malfunctions and bathes the Central city in a mysterious form of radiation, Barry is struck by lightning.

How To Watch The Flash?

As well as watching the series on TV, you can also stream the show’s episodes via the following link.

However, bear in mind that the online streaming option works only for American residents. CWTV has partnered with a number of foreign channels and content providers to distribute its shows outside United States so it doesn’t allow viewers with non-US IP addresses to stream the series episodes from abroad. Even if you try to watch The Flash episodes from outside US, you would get redirected to a page which shows the following message:


As you can imagine, these geographical restrictions prevent expats, students studying abroad as well as tourists from accessing their favorite shows online.

Is It Possible To Unblock The Flash From Outside US?

While it may seem that it is almost impossible to stream The Flash from outside America, in reality there are a number of ways to unlock the series from anywhere. Since the location determination part hinges on IP address, you can bypass CWTV checks simply by using a VPN service that assigns you a US IP address. If you don’t want security features that come with VPNs, simply subscribing to a SmartDNS service would also do the trick. Here is how you can watch The Flash from anywhere:

Step 1) Subscribe to a monthly/quarterly/half-yearly/yearly plan of a fast and dependable VPN/SmartDNS service provider. Here are some absolutely fantastic service providers that support CWTV streaming:

Step 2) Check whether there is a pre-configured client available to setup the service. If the provider doesn’t offer its own software, you would need to modify the network settings of your device in order to configure the service. While the process may sound complicated, in reality it can be done by anyone within 5 minutes.

Step 3) Finish the setup process by saving the changes. Also, remember to close and restart the CWTV app so that it uses the latest network settings.

Step 4) Connect to your VPN/SmartDNS service by clicking/tapping on its icon. In case you configured the service manually, you must navigate to the Network Connections section and start the service from over there.

Step 5) After the connection with the VPN server is established, it is vital to check whether your new IP is really from United States. This step is necessary because big VPN companies tend to have servers all over the world. If the default server of your VPN company is located outside United States, simply choose a different server which is present within mainland US.

Step 6) Visit the CWTV portal once again and try to stream The Flash episodes now. Since your IP address has changed, you should be able to stream the series without encountering any location related error messages.
