VPN : How to Watch American Music Awards 2017 Live Online


The American Music Awards 2017 ceremony is set to take place on Sunday, November 19th, 2017. The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, USA, will host the event. The same venue hosted the AMA 2016 last year as well. ABC will broadcast the 45th American Music Awards live online in the United States. Unfortunately for American expats currently living abroad, ABC Go is geoblocked outside the US. To bypass these regional restrictions, you need to use VPN or Smart DNS proxies.

How to Stream AMA 2017 Live Online with VPN

If you want to stream the ceremony online, you can do so by heading over to ABC Go as long as you currently reside in the United States. Unfortunately, American channels are geoblocked overseas. By using VPN, you can hide your real online location and unblock all ABC Go and other geo-restricted channels anywhere in the world, regardless of where you currently live. Follow these steps to watch Oscars 2017 live online.

  1. Go to ExpressVPN and create your VPN account.
  2. Then, download and install the VPN application to your device.
  3. Launch the app and sign into it using the VPN account you have just created.
  4. From within the app, connect to a VPN server in the same region/country as they channel you wish to unblock. In other words, if you want to stream the American Music Awards 2017 on ABC Go outside USA, for instance, connect to an American VPN server.

Given that ExpressVPN offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, there is no risk involved in signing up with them. However, if you do wish to use a different VPN service to stream the AMA 2017 live online, take a look at the list below. Keep in mind that using VPN does not eliminate the need for a valid subscription to channels you wish to unblock where applicable.

How to Watch American Music Awards outside USA with Smart DNS Proxy

You can also use Smart DNS proxies to bypass geographic restrictions and unblock online channels that would usually not be available in your region. When compared to VPN, Smart DNS has its pros and cons.

  • The streaming channels you can unblock are limited by the Smart DNS proxy service you are using.
  • Your Internet traffic is not encrypted.
  • Users whose ISP uses DNS hijacking or transparent proxies are better off using VPN.
  • Smart DNS can be configured on a wide range of devices. This includes PS3, PS4, Xbox, Apple TV, Fire Stick, Smart TV, Android, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.

Unlocator is a Smart DNS proxy service that supports unblocking a wide range of streaming channels from around the world. Signing up with Unlocator is free for the first 7 days and requires no credit card. While you can unblock on-demand content on ABC Go using Unlocator, access to live ABC streams is not supported.
