Watch The Goldbergs From Any Location

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

The Goldbergs is a sitcom TV series which premiered on ABC in September’ 2013. Set in the 80s, the series is loosely based on the childhood and family of the series creator Adam F. Goldberg. The first two seasons of the series received great reviews (the second season scored a perfect 100% on aggregator site Rottentomatoes.com) which prompted ABC to renew the series for a third season. The third season of the show premiered on 23rd September’ 2015 and will end its run in May’ 2016.

What To Expect The Goldbergs Season 3?

As you might be aware, the series revolves around 11-year old Adam who loves to capture everything on his video camera. Unlike most other sitcoms, The Goldbergs is based on the adventures of a real person and real family. The third season of the series showcases how Adam handles puberty as well as changes around him as he moves from middle to high school. Expect plenty of laughs and references to popular culture of the 80s in the new season.

How To Watch The Goldbergs Online?

The Goldbergs is telecast on the ABC Channel on Wednesday nights at 8:30 P.M. In addition, you can stream the series on your laptop or mobile device through the following link:

The bad news is that the online streaming option works only for those who happen to be based in US (or have an American IP address). Like other American content providers, ABC has signed content sharing agreements with many international TV channels and content providers. These agreements clearly state that ABC must not broadcast or stream its shows outside United States under any circumstances. Of course, such GEO-IP based restrictions also prevent American expats and business travelers from accessing their favorite shows online.

How To Watch The Goldbergs From Anywhere?

If you are a fan of The Goldbergs and wish to stream the show from an overseas (non-US) location then you need to somehow hide your real location from ABC. This can be achieved by using a VPN or SmartDNS service. These services allow you to virtually reside within US and stream On-Demand services that are available only to American viewers. Here is how to stream The Goldbergs from abroad:

Step 1) Subscribe to a VPN or SmartDNS service which allows you to unlock American On-Demand streaming services. Here are some good vendors to start with:

Step 2) Download and install the VPN or SmartDNS client supplied by your service provider. In case a customized client is not available, you would need to set up the service manually by navigating to the Network Connections area of your device and creating a new connection.

Step 3) The final configuration step involves saving all the changes and restarting the machine (or the ABC app).

Step 4) Test the new VPN setup by clicking on the desktop icon of the service. For SmartDNS or manually configured VPN service, you must navigate to the Network Settings area and initiate a connection from there.

Step 5) When the connection is established, check whether you have a US IP address. Since a VPN provider may deploy its default server at any location in the world, it is a good idea to check the location of the IP address assigned by the VPN service before heading to the ABC website. If your new IP is still not from US, check the list of available US servers and choose the nearest server.

Step 6) Visit the homepage of The Goldbergs once again and try to stream an episode. In case you still face location related issues, remember to close and restart the ABC app to flush out old network settings.
