Revenge Storyline and Plot

Revenge tells the story of Emily Thorne (played by Emily VanCamp) who rents a house in Hamptons to enjoy the summer. However, in reality Emily has far more sinister plans and is all set to take revenge upon those who wronged her father. We discover that Emily is in fact Amanda Clarke who spent a little time in Hamptons when she was just a kid and her father was sent to prison for a crime he never committed and was murdered there. Emily makes her way through the upper society to destroy one and all who framed her father, especially Victoria Grayson (played by Madeleine Stowe) whom here father loved and who betrayed him. Can Emily take her revenge?

Revenge Availability Online

Revenge is telecast on ABC TV network. All the episodes of the current and past seasons are also available online through the ABC portal. But since the videos published on the portal are available only within US borders, fans of Revenge would not be able to access full episodes online once they move out of the country. If you try to watch Revenge episodes on ABC site from outside US, you will come across the message – “You appear to be outside the United States or its territories. Due to international rights agreements, we only offer this video to viewers located within the United States and its territories”. These location based restrictions are especially severe for students studying abroad, expats and travelers who are not able to watch their favorite shows only because they are in a different country.

How ABC Blocks Access To Revenge And What To Do About It

ABC, like many other online content providers, checks the location of the visitors before they are allowed to access videos and TV shows published on its portal. The location check is done by scanning visitor’s IP address which is like virtual address of internet users. Content providers like ABC have the ability to block IP range that are not from US so that only US based subscribers are able to watch videos and TV series online.

In order to access Revenge from another country, you need to get a US based IP address through an IP changing service. As far as easy to use IP changing solutions are concerned, proxies and VPNs regularly top the list. However, VPNs do the job of changing IPs more effectively by shielding your real IP address from content providers at all times and they also deliver ultra-fast speeds required for watching streaming videos.

How To Watch Revenge From Abroad With A VPN

Step 1: The very first step is to select a VPN company which has a VPN server in United States. For unlocking ABC streaming service (ABC Player), we highly recommend signing up with ExpressVPNproXPNVPN4ALLCactusVPN, and IPVanish mainly because these companies offer very high speeds at a very affordable subscription price.

Step 2: Grab the VPN client from the VPN company’s website and do the installation as per the instructions supplied or simply configure the VPN service by altering few network parameters. For mobile devices like tablets and Smartphones, there is usually no installation necessary but you have to configure the virtual private network by changing few network settings. Many VPN companies offer complete setup tutorials on their websites so be sure to choose a setup plan intended for your OS and device.

Step 3: The next step is to save the changes and apply the settings. You might even have to reboot your computer for the network changes to take effect. For mobile device, you just need to apply the changes and close and restart the ABC Player app so that it uses the latest network parameters.

Step 4: Start the VPN service by simply clicking on the Virtual private network desktop icon or tapping on the Connect option located next to VPN connection name.

Step 5: Pick a USA based VPN server if you are not presently connected to one. The vast majority of VPN providers own VPN servers in many countries so you will have to select a server from US manually in order to unblock ABC Player shows and videos. If the VPN provider provides a lot of server options inside US, go with a server which is nearest to your current address so that you get faster online video streaming speeds.

Step 6: Connect to the ABC website, click on Revenge title name and check whether you are able to watch the episodes. To access the episodes from your tablet or Smartphone, close the ABC Player native app and restart it to unlock every feature. You are now free to watch Revenge episodes from almost any place on this planet.
