Watch DC Universe outside the US using this simple hack
Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.
DC Universe is the Netflix of Superheros. Unfortunately unlike Superheros that pretty much save the entire planet, it’s not available anywhere but the US.
Superhero fans need not worry though because there’s a simple hack that will let you tap into DC Universe regardless of what country you’re in.
So if you’re in Canada, Australia, the UK or New Zealand you can watch DC Universe. If you’re in Japan, Korea, Thailand, South Africa or France you can watch DC Universe.
Pretty much you can watch DC Universe anywhere in the world using this simple hack below.
What is DC Universe
Let’s start off with what DC Universe actually is, just in case you haven’t heard of it.
DC Universe is the largest collection of DC content ever put together in one place. It’s a subscription service that is effectively the Netflix of DC content.
If you’re a comic fan, a superhero fan or you just love DC characters then DC Universe is where you want to be.
You can stream everything from Titans to The Death of Superman and Static Shock to the Superman movies.
The service costs $7.99 per month or $74.99 for the entire year. They also have a 7-day trial before any payment is taken.
Watch DC Universe outside the US
If you visit the DC Universe outside the US you’ll be blocked with a message like this:
SORRY, THIS SERVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE US. WE’LL ANNOUNCE WHEN IT IS AVAILABLE IN YOUR REGION.
There’s no indication when it will make it to other countries or if it ever will.
The great news is by using a ‘VPN‘ app you can bypass that restriction and watch DC Universe anywhere in the world.
What’s a VPN and where can I get one
A VPN is a privacy app that stops hackers, governments and companies from spying on what you’re doing on the internet.
It stops people from tracking your moves but more importantly it allows you to disguise your location.
So if you’re in Canada for example, you can make it seem as if you’re in the United States. This tricks DC Universe into allowing you access to their site.
VPN apps can also be used for loads of other things like watching other regions of Netflix or bypassing NFL blackouts or that of other sports.
There are so many VPN services out there now it’s hard to know which to choose. Luckily almost all will work because DC Universe doesn’t block any of them.
However, in my tests I found ExpressVPN to be the most suitable.
They’re great for streaming video which means you can watch all the DC Universe shows in high quality and when you’re watching Superman, Titans or one of the other shows you’ll want to see them in all their glory.
There are a couple of other good choices too and my top 3 VPN services for watching DC Universe outside the US are below.
