Mom is a sitcom and drama-comedy TV series which currently airs on the CBS channel. The series debuted to positive reviews in September’ 2013 and even won Critics’ Choice and PrimeTime Emmy awards in multiple categories. Whether your in the USA or traveling somewhere else in the world, we’ll go over how you can watch the show anywhere!

Mom Plot And Storyline

The series chronicles the life of Christy Plunkett (played by Anna Faris) who is starting a new life in Napa Valley after battling substance abuse and alcoholism. As well as working as a waitress and trying to get her life back on track, Christy has to deal with a number of personal issues including a mother who is also recovering from drug addiction and a daughter who became pregnant during her teenage years. Despite being a dramedy series, the show deals with a number of serious issues including drug addiction and relapse, alcoholism, teenage pregnancy, homelessness, domestic violence, gambling addiction as well as cancer.

How To Watch Mom TV Series?

For its third season, CBS has decided to move the show to Thursday night 9 PM slot. Of course, you also have the option of streaming the latest episodes of the series through this link.

Since CBS geographically restricts its content, you won’t be able to watch the series from a non-US location. Fans of the show would see the following “Content Unavailable” message when they try to stream its episodes from an overseas location

“The-video-you-have-requested-is-not-available-for-your-geographical-region”

Like most American content creators, CBS has tied up with multiple international channels (Nine Network in Australia, ITV2 in UK, City TV in Canada, Star Channel in Greece) to distribute the show abroad. As a part of licensing agreements, CBS has relinquished its overseas distribution rights through all mediums (including online streaming). That’s why, when people having non-American IP addresses try to stream the show, they get instantly redirected to a page that shows the above error message. And if you think such restrictions don’t apply on American expats and tourists, you are in for a big surprise! The bottom line is that anyone located abroad won’t be able to stream CBS shows through the internet.

How To Unblock Mom TV Series Outside US?

If you are looking for an easy way to stream Mom (as well as other CBS shows) from your current (non-US) location, here’s some good news for you. Since CBS relies mostly on IP addresses to block overseas viewers, you would be able to beat its filters just by switching to an American IP or by changing the DNS settings of your device. Advanced networking solutions like VPNs and SmartDNS services make it incredibly easy to change IP/DNS settings and access GEO-IP blocked content from anywhere. Here is a brief guide on how this content unlocking works:

Step 1) Subscribe to a monthly (or longer term) plan of a VPN/SmartDNS service provider. Here are some recommended services which get the job done:

Step 2) Set up the service on your computer, tablet or Smartphone by following the instructions provided by your vendor. Many VPN companies do supply their own installable clients but others would ask you to configure the service manually. Even if a pre-configured client is not available, you can easily configure the service by changing the default network settings of your device.

Step 3) Save all the changes and reboot the device if needed. Also, remember to stop and restart the CBS app on mobile devices.

Step 4) Once the configuration is done, you can test the service. Click on the service icon to establish a connection with the VPN server.

Step 5) As soon as the connection is successful, your IP address/DNS settings would change. However, it is equally essential to verify that the IP address assigned to you is from an American territory. If your vendor’s default server is located elsewhere, you would need to switch to an American VPN server manually.

Step 6) Visit the Mom TV series homepage on the CBS portal through a browser or the CBS app. Since your real IP/DNS settings are already masked, CBS would allow you to stream the episodes of the series.
