Mike & Molly Availability

Mike & Molly is usually telecast on Monday nights (9:30 PM) on the CBS channel. The past seasons of the show as well as its latest episodes are also available for online viewing through the official CBS portal (cbs.com/shows/mike_and_molly/). The online version of Mike & Molly is currently available only to residents of United States due to licensing restrictions. Fans of the series, including travelers and expats, come across this message when they try to access the show from abroad – “The video you have requested is not available for your geographic region”.

How CBS Blocks Access To Mike & Molly

CBS has partnered with several content providers to broadcast Mike & Molly outside United States (CTV in Canada, Comedy Central UK in UK, TV3 in Norway, Kanal 5 in Sweden). Due to the content sharing agreements signed between CBS and its partner channels, CBS doesn’t own the rights to telecast the show outside United States. To enforce these restrictions, CBS checks the IP address of people who are trying to access Mike & Molly episodes online and only allows people with a genuine US IP address to watch them.

It is fairly easy to watch Mike & Molly episodes from any location by using an IP changing service such as a proxy or a VPN. While proxies are cheap and easy to use, VPNs have the speed and privacy advantage which make them highly suitable for accessing streaming shows online. By using a VPN and changing your IP address to a US based IP; you can easily bypass the location based restrictions set by CBS and other content providers.

How To Unlock Full Episodes of Mike & Molly From Overseas With A VPN

Step 1: Register for a VPN service that offers United States based IP addresses. For unlocking Mike & Molly from abroad, check the high speed and bandwidth plans from ExpressVPN, Kepard, PureVPN, Private Internet Access or VyprVPN. These companies are well established in the market and provide IP addresses from several US cities.

Step 2: Install the custom VPN client (usually available for Windows) or configure the service manually (other systems and mobile devices). Make sure that you refer to the correct setup instructions applicable for your Operating system and device so that the service is configured correctly.

Step 3: Save the network changes and reboot the system if necessary. In addition, you must also close and restart the CBS app on your mobile device so that it can pick up and use the VPN configuration.

Step 4: Start the service by clicking on its desktop icon or connection name. The connection time is highly dependent on the distance of the server from your location and your current internet speed so you may need to wait for few seconds for the service to establish a connection. The connection time could be significantly higher if you are located in a far away country or if the speed provided by your ISP is very slow.

Step 5: Check the IP address assigned to you with the help of an IP changing service. If you configured the service manually then you would automatically get a US IP address. However, if you installed custom VPN client on your system then you may need to switch to a US server manually if the default server of your VPN vendor is located outside US. While making the switch, make sure to use a US server located closest to your current city so that you can unlock CBS shows with best streaming speeds.

Step 6: Visit the CBS website and click on Mike & Molly episode names in order to unlock them. To watch the episodes on your mobile screen, make sure to close and restart the CBS app after you have changed your IP address. You should now be able to enjoy the full episodes of Mike & Molly from any country in the world.
