New Girl Storyline and Plot

The series tells the story of a bubbly girl Jessica “Jess” Day (Deschanel) who is a teacher in Los Angeles. After her breakup with the current boyfriend, she moves in an apartment with 3 young men: Nick, Coach and Schmidt. After a while, Coach is replaced by Winston who has shared an apartment with Nick and Schmidt in the past as well. Can this unusual group stay together without losing their sanity?

New Girl Availability

New Girl is telecast on the Fox TV Channel. The past as well current episodes of the series are also available for online viewing through the Fox TV website. The Fox TV portal is not accessible outside US so fans of the series, including expats and American travelers, would not be able to watch it online from a different country. When someone tries to watch New Girl’s episodes online from outside of USA, he/she will only see the message – “The video you are attempting to watch is only available to viewers within the US, US territories, and military bases.”

How Fox Blocks Access To New Girl And What Can Be Done About It?

Fox has to block international audience from watching New Girl online since it has signed content sharing agreements with other providers which prohibit it from broadcasting the show in other countries. To achieve this, Fox scans the IP address of people visiting its portal and if people happen to be from outside US, they are simply redirected to the error message page.

In order to watch New Girl from outside United States, you need to hide your real IP address from Fox and access the portal with a US based IP address. Proxies and VPNs are considered as the most user friendly IP changing services since they allow you to change your IP address by just clicking a button. For unblocking streaming services like Fox TV, VPNs should be preferred since they encrypt your traffic and provide blazing fast speeds for streaming HD content.

How To Watch New Girl From Abroad With A VPN

Step 1: The very first step is to sign up with a VPN provider having one or more servers within United States. For unblocking New Girl and other Fox shows, you can choose the unrestricted bandwidth and speed plans from KepardPureVPNHideMyAssStrongVPN, and IPVanish. Each of the above VPN providers is well-known for its American VPN plan and provides top range speeds and anonymity required to access Fox TV shows online.

Step 2: Download the VPN software from the VPN provider’s site and do the installation as per the instructions provided or simply configure the VPN service by updating the system’s network configurations. When it comes to mobile devices like tablets and Smartphones, there is usually no software installation required but you need to configure the VPN service by adjusting few networking parameters. Virtually all VPN providers provide in-depth installation tutorials but it is important to choose the setup method meant for your current device and operating system.

Step 3: Save and apply the updates and then restart your desktop computer or laptop if needed. As far as mobile devices are concerned, you just have to save and apply the new settings and restart the Fox TV application to use the brand new network configuration.

Step 4: Initiate the VPN service by clicking on the desktop VPN icon or on the Connect option present next to the new connection name.

Step 5: Choose a United States based VPN server in case the default server is from some other country. Many VPN vendors have servers at multiple locations so you’d need to choose a US server manually to unlock Fox portal. It is also possible that your provider may have multiple servers in United States and other countries. If this happens to be the case then choose a US server which is geographically nearest to your present location so that you get the best streaming speeds.

Step 6: Browse to the Fox site once again and check whether or not you are able to watch the episodes of New Girl. To watch the episodes from your mobile device, simply close the Fox TV native app and restart it. You are now free to watch your favorite New Girl episodes again and again from virtually any country in the world.
