How to watch New Amsterdam online for free



Chris has a passion for helping you watch your favourite TV abroad. When he isn't helping you he can be found watching football, browsing Netflix or watching a good documentary.

New Amsterdam is the American medical drama that has got hospital drama fans talking. If you’re a fan of medical series, then it’s one you don’t want to miss.

Unfortunately though it’s only shown on cable and subscription networks, in the US it’s shown by NBC, in the UK on Amazon Prime and across the world it’s pretty much restricted to services you have to pay to watch.

In Australia however, New Amsterdam is shown free by Nine Network and online on their 9Now service.

By using an app called a VPN you can bypass the geo-restrictions that limit viewing to Australia and watch for free anywhere in the world.

Below I’ll be showing you how.

How to watch New Amsterdam online for free

You first need to get yourself a VPN app which allows you to avoid the geo-restrictions in place. My recommended choice is ExpressVPN but you can also use others like IPVanish and NordVPN too.

A VPN will cost you a couple of dollars per month and they’re much cheaper if you sign up for a year.

You’re not just limited to watching New Amsterdam either and can watch plenty of other movies, tv shows, sports and more.

Follow the steps below to get a VPN and to use it to watch New Amsterdam where you are.

  • Step 1: Head over to the ExpressVPN website and sign up for their service.
  • Step 2: Download their VPN app from the ‘Products’ area of the ExpressVPN website.
  • Step 3: Open the app and login with your account details.
  • Step 4: Press the ‘Choose Location‘ (1) button.
  • Step 5: Then press ‘All‘ (2), ‘Asia Pacific‘ and then press ‘Australia‘ (3).
  • Step 6: Press the ‘Connect‘ button.
  • Step 7: Once connected visit the 9Now New Amsterdam page or use the 9Now app to watch.

Sit back and enjoy binging New Amsterdam

Once you’re connected to the VPN app from ExpressVPN or one of the other recommended services any websites or apps you use think you’re in Australia.

So instead of being blocked from accessing the 9Now website or app, you’ll now be able to watch anything there including the entire series of New Amsterdam.

You don’t need to pay any cable subscriptions or subscribe to any services (apart from the VPN of course). You can now binge watch as much New Amsterdam and other stuff as you want.

How can I get the 9Now app?

If you want to watch on a mobile or tablet, then you’ll need to get the 9Now app. However, if you’ve got a computer, then it’s easiest to watch on this because you don’t need any additional apps.

For those of you who want to watch on a mobile or tablet then you’ll need to ‘sideload’ the 9Now app.

This involves getting it from a place other than your regular app store. If you try to download directly from the app store, you’ll be blocked because you’re outside Australia.


For Android devices simply open a new web-browser and type in the following URL:

Apple iOS:

If you’re using an iPhone or iPad then it’s a little more complicated process and you’ll need to follow this dedicated guide on how to install apps outside their intended country.

What is New Amsterdam all about?

New Amsterdam is the latest American medical drama. It’s loosely based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer.

The first series started airing in the United States in September 2018 and has been distributed around the world to the likes of the UK and Australia in 2019. A second series has already been commissioned.

The initial story centres on Dr. Max Goodwin played by Ryan Eggold better known for his roles in 90210 and Tom Keen.

He’s tasked after being given the position of medical director at reforming one of America’s oldest hospitals. The public facility has been neglected and it’s Dr. Goodwin’s job to put that right by ridding it of bureaucracy to offer care to their patients.
