I remember that a concern one of my brothers had when I was considering teaching overseas in China is how I would watch TV. “How will you watch TV, it will all be in Chinese?” my brother said to me. First of all, it is true that once I moved overseas I became much less interested in TV (this is a good thing in my opinion). However, certain shows that I really enjoyed after a long day of work (now I’m all about Game of Thrones!!) I was able to find and stream online. But what happens when you can no longer get a service that you have already paid for in the states (Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, etc.) because you are in a different country?!
Considering that the internet in Venezuela is the second slowest in all of South America (Guyana is slightly worse), I haven’t been able to stream anything for a while (not since I left China). While I was in Mexico, Hotspot Shield worked well for streaming Hulu.
If you do have fast internet, check out the Lifehacker article for a few more ways to stream your shows overseas.
