How NBC Blocks Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Online

NBC has tied up with several content providers to distribute Late Night with Jimmy Fallon outside United States (The Comedy Channel in Australia, OSN in Middle East, CTV in Canada and CNBC in UK and Ireland). Due to the content sharing terms agreed upon by the channel and its partners, NBC is not permitted to broadcast the show outside mainland US. To ensure that international visitors are not able to watch the show online, NBC checks the IP address of every visitor and only allows visitors with US IP addresses to access the show.

In order to unblock Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from all over the world, you need to switch to a US IP address so that the GEO-IP restrictions set by NBC are not applicable on you. This can be done by subscribing to a proxy or a VPN service which can provide you with US IP addresses at really affordable rates. When compared head-to-head, VPNs offer a lot of speed and privacy benefits which make them more suitable for unlocking of streaming shows online.

How To Unlock Late Night with Jimmy Fallon From Abroad With A VPN

Step 1: Get a VPN connection from a VPN company that offers IP addresses from United States. To unlock Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, it is advisable to subscribe to a VPN service from ExpressVPN, HideMyAss, Private Internet Access, or HIDEIPVPN since these providers are well-known for their reliable VPN service and high speeds.

Step 2: Create a new network connection on your mobile device or computer and input the server details and login credentials supplied by your VPN vendor. For certain operating systems like Windows, it may even be possible to setup the service through proprietary software but not every vendor supports it.

Step 3: Save and apply the connection changes and reboot the system if it is recommended by the VPN company. In addition, remember to close and restart the NBC app on mobile devices so that it can use the latest connection details while connecting to the NBC website.

Step 4: Connect to the VPN service by clicking on the connection name in the start menu or by tapping the Connect option on your mobile device. Since the connection time is highly dependent on existing internet speed and distance of the server, you may have to wait for few minutes before the connection gets established.

Step 5: Check whether the IP address assigned to you is from United States. This is usually not an issue for those who configured the service manually since the service will automatically connect to the US server specified during the setup process. However, if you configured the service through software then you may need to switch to a US VPN server manually in case the default server is located in a different country. It is also advisable to use a US server located closest to your real location to get the best streaming and browsing speeds.

Step 6: Connect to the Late Night site again and click on the episode names to unlock the videos. Congratulations, you have successfully unlocked Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from every corner of the world.
