Why can’t I watch This Is Us season 4 in the UK?
Annoyingly, NBC (the show’s creators) isn’t distributing season 4 of This Is Us this is global partners (Amazon Prime, Channel 4 etc.) for another several months.

Can I use a free VPN to watch This Is Us season 4?
The short answer is: No. Not really.
A free VPN lets you connect to the internet via an encrypted network and resurfaces via a genuine US IP address, in the same way a paid-for VPN does. However, the IP addresses free VPNs share their users are all over congested and are therefore easily detected/blocked by broadcasters and their VDS (video distribution services).
Which VPN’s work with NBC and Hulu?
We recommend using one of the three VPN providers below to consistently connect to NBC and Hulu. Other VPNs may work but the four below have been verified and speed tested. They also have very good customer support if you have any issues.

It also always works with US Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, BBC iPlayer (in the UK) and loads of other online servers.
ExpressVPN is at the top of this list because it is the best VPN on the market. If you can afford to pay a little more, you will not regret it.
This VPN is extremely fast. When we performed our independent VPN speed tests, it was consistently at the top with great download/upload speeds. There are ALWAYS open servers for major streaming sites such as Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu and CBS All Access.
ExpressVPN is the best at playing Cat and Mouse with streaming sites. If an IP address is blacklisted, a new one is created. This is why there are a constant number of servers available that work with NBC and Hulu.

ExpressVPN is different from its competitors. Its software prioritises user management by having the customer choose their location rather than an individual server. Once you choose your location the app does the rest. A fast server that isn’t overused is assigned to you and this server will perform at lightning-fast speeds. This software is great because it prevents IP addresses being blacklisted in the first place.
ExpressVPN is slightly more expensive than the other VPNs on this list. But if you can spare the extra money, you won’t be let down.
