How to watch Hard Knocks: Los Angeles outside the US



A connoisseur of 80's action films like 300, Predator, and Terminator, Lee blends his extensive movie knowledge with adeptness at streaming shows worldwide. His love for cinema permeates his lifestyle, from attending Comic Con to sporting Star Wars socks.

If you are a fan of Football (American), then you will love Hard Knocks: Los Angeles.

In this article, I will be showing you how to access the show if you are outside of the US.

But first, let’s cover a few of the basics.

While the United States is a great place, if you are like me, then you will want to travel.

Travelling is brilliant, but what isn’t brilliant is not being able to access your favourite TV shows from back home.

This is usually due to regional restrictions that are put in place by websites to prevent people just like you from accessing content from outside of a particular region.

So Hard Knocks: Los Angeles will only be available to those who are currently residing in the United States. If you are living abroad right now, you are out of luck.

To me, this doesn’t seem fair, which is why I’m writing this article.

Like I said earlier in the article, you don’t want to miss this series if you are a fan of the NFL. I’ll be discussing more details about the show later in the article.

What you will need to watch

As I briefly mentioned before, due to regional restrictions, certain TV shows and online streaming platforms are unavailable to those who live outside of the United States.

Unfortunately, Hard Knocks: Los Angeles is one of those shows.

As the show is going to be available on HBO and their online streaming service, HBO Max you will need to find a way to avoid the regional restrictions in place.

Luckily for you, I can show you how to do that.

All you need is a VPN.

What is a VPN and how will it help me?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and once you install it on your device, it will give you the ability to connect to your internet via servers located all around the world.

By doing so, websites and streaming platforms will believe that you are in whatever region you are connected to… e.g. the United States.

This will give you unrestricted access to all of your favourite American TV channels, and their online streaming services.

Pretty cool, huh?

You will have no trouble streaming Hard Knocks: Los Angeles, plus much much more.

Where to get a VPN

There are hundreds of companies offering VPN services.

When it comes to selecting which VPN provider you should use, I recommend ExpressVPN.

Why ExpressVPN?

It’s quite simple really, they are the fastest VPN around, and not only will they provide you with super fast connections with the ability to stream 4K TV, but they also let you test them risk-free with their 30-day money back guarantee.

What’s Hard Knocks: Los Angeles all about?

Hard Knocks: Los Angeles is the 15th season of the epic TV show that has taken sports fans by storm.

As the NFL’s 2020 season is structured a bit differently due to the current pandemic, NFL fans will be salivating at the thought of a football-related TV show to watch until the season starts in September.

In this season Hard Knocks follows two NFL teams (something that has never happened before) the Los Angeles Rams, and the Los Angeles Chargers as they both prepare for the upcoming season.

Obviously minus the pre-season games, but the show gives an insight into their training, ethos, and a closer more personal look at the players and staff.

The show looks to be quite the spectacle, as I said before, this season is going to be a season like no other, so don’t miss out due to regional restrictions.

Who stars in the show?

Paul Rudd – This actor is narrating the TV show and is best known for starring in Friends, Ant-Man, The Avengers Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War, I Love You Man, and Knocked Up.

Liev Schreiber – Schreiber also narrates the show and is best known for his roles in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Defiance, Salt, Ransom, The Sum Of All Fears, and Ray Donovan.

There will also be appearances of the Los Angeles Rams/Los Angeles Chargers players and coaching staff.


Suppose you are an American living abroad, or perhaps you are just travelling around somewhere like Europe. In that case, you will find that you can’t access some of your favourite TV channels and their online streaming services due to regional restrictions.

HBO’s Hard Knocks: Los Angeles is one of those shows.

To access Hard Knocks, you will need to use a VPN.

I recommend that you use ExpressVPN, I found them to be the best service letting me stream shows in top quality.

Sign up for their service, download their app, connect to the United States and then sit back and enjoy some football action.
