Thursday, April 21st, 2016

W/ Bob And David is a sketch comedy series which premiered on Netflix in November’ 2015. The series was crafted by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross who teamed up earlier for the hit HBO show Mr. Show with Bob and David. Although both the shows share the same writing team, the Netflix series is easier to understand and much more funny. In this detailed article, you will learn about the steps needed to watch W/ Bob And David from any location using a VPN or SmartDNS service.

What To Expect From W/ Bob And David?

The series consists of four half-hour long episodes as well as an hour long “Behind the Scenes” special. In the series, Bob and David star as former Navy SEALS who have been dishonorably discharged from the service. Instead of fading away from the limelight, the duo start serving the country via sketch comedy. Although the show contains copious amounts of sarcasm and satire, it also has a great story with deeper meaning.

How To Watch W/ Bob And David?

The series can be streamed via the following Netflix link.

Like many other Netflix titles, the series is currently available only to US subscribers. If you try to watch this satirical series from a location where Netflix is not officially available, you will come across the following error message:


How To Watch W/ Bob And David From Any Location?

If you are interested in unlocking the series from your current (non-US) location then you must learn a bit about how the content unlocking works. Netflix relies on IP address to detect location so as soon as you visit its website using a non-US IP address, the company is able to tell that you are not based in Untied States. Once the IP address is determined by Netflix, US subscribers are allowed to watch series like W/ Bob And David while viewers from other locations are automatically redirected to the page which shows the “Content Unavailable” message. Unfortunately, this kind of IP filtering is even applicable for US expats and business flyers who have subscribed to US Netflix but are currently having a non-US IP address because of their location.

If you want to bypass Netflix’s filtering and watch W/ Bob And David from a non-US location then you must switch to a US based IP address. Changing of IPs is incredibly easier these days thanks to the availability of so many VPN and SmartDNS services. Here is a small guide that shows how to change your IP and watch the series from anywhere:

Step 1) As you might have guessed, the very first step involves subscribing to a VPN or SmartDNS service. Subscribing to a VPN service would also make you anonymous on the internet while choosing a SmartDNS solution would only allow you to watch On-Demand streaming services and unlock a limited number of social networking sites. Here are some reliable providers which can unlock Netflix for you:

Step 2) After the subscription process is complete, you can go ahead and configure the service on your computer or mobile device. While this sounds complicated, the process is fairly straightforward and involves changing the existing network settings. Some providers even offer pre-configured clients so you can install the service in 3-5 clicks.

Step 3) Save all the changes by clicking/tapping on Save/OK button. Additionally, remember to close and restart the Netflix app so that it can start using the new network settings.

Step 4) Test the service by clicking/tapping on its desktop icon. If you have configured the service via the manual method, you would need to navigate to the Networking section once again and start the service from there.

Step 5) Once the connection is established, the IP address of your device would change automatically. Before you proceed to the Netflix site or start using its app, it is essential to verify the location of the new IP address. Since the VPN industry is growing at a rapid pace, it is possible that your VPN provider may have deployed its default server outside United States. If this is indeed the case, you can still get a US IP address by switching to a US server manually.

Step 6) Visit the homepage of W/ Bob And David once again via the Netflix app or the default browser. Since your new IP address is from mainland United States, Netflix should allow you to stream the show without displaying any error message.
