You might not be able to access ABC if you are living outside the US. The reason is simple.
The ABC blocks the viewers who are living outside the US. It is their geo-restriction policy to make the US viewers as the exclusive clients. ABC also has the live streaming website, which also comes with the geo-restriction system.
When you attempt to visit the site to get the access to ABC, you will receive the notice that you appear to be outside the US or its territories. That means those who are living abroad, or traveling to another country when the event happens won’t be able to access the ABC live stream service.
You need to know. However, it is not the end. You can bypass the geo-restriction with the help of the VPN service. Indeed! You can access ABC with a VPN.
The Geo Blocked sites will recognize you coming from a different country. At this point, it is a great idea to use the VPN and connect to the US IP. You will appear as if you are using the internet in the US soil. Thus, the ABC streaming service will recognize you as the US user. You will no longer have the streaming issues. Have a good day!
