So during this upcoming summer I have the opportunity to travel central, northern and western Europe for over a month.

That being said, I don't want to stop watching all my shows during my travels! I will be trying to watch them on any buses, trains and planes that I will be riding on. This leads to my question:

Will me traveling in a handful of different countries affect what I can watch even though my membership resides in the USA with me? Will I be subjected to the region restrictions like I lived there or will I be able to watch shows regardless of the restrictions because my membership "resides" in the USA?

You won't be able to watch them, sorry. It's based on IP.

Get a VPN with U.S servers.

It's based on where you are currently. As JayVeeDees mentioned, there may or may not be ways around it, though.

I suppose you could try to bypass that using a proxy service, no idea how well that'd work though.

I have been caught by surprise once and almost my whole queue disappeared... then I remembered I had my VPN active and set to a foreign server. So ,nope, it will not work unless you use a VPN and connect to a US server.

I was in a certain part of the world last summer where CR only had 6 simulcasts...

Unfortunately, yes, you will be affected by the regional restrictions.


I'm personally tired of this region restrictions bullcrap
