Better Call Saul
Sure, Breaking Bad wrapped up pretty definitely for Walter White, but that doesn’t mean legions of rabid fans are done with the landmark series’ universe.
Enter Better Call Saul, which aired its first episode on February 8th and the second February 9th. Centered around Bob Odenkirk’s less-than-scrupulous attorney, Saul Goodman, Better Call Saul is the Breaking Bad spin-off than fans all but demanded after the original AMC favorite ended after its sixth season. As big Breaking Bad fans and lifelong Odenkirk fans, we’re every bit as excited as the rest of you.
That said, for devoted cord-cutters like ourselves, the first question we have is always this; how do we stream it?
Stream Better Call Saul from Anywhere With a VPN
In an encouraging sign for serious streamers everywhere, the television industry is seemingly making some effort to accommodate those of us who’ve ditched our pricey cable packages. In fact, each episode of Better Call Saul becomes available on Netflix Instant UK the day after it airs in the US!
Fat lot of good that does us in the US, right? Right, because we have VPNs to take care of the rest.
For those of you who haven’t heard of VPNs, allow us to introduce them to you. A VPN service (or Virtual Private Network) service is a subscription-based service that serves a multitude of purposes, the primary one being securing your online data.
When you log into your VPN, all of your activity is tunneled through encrypted servers that are set up all over the world. This basically makes your personal information virtually impossible to trace, keeping your private e-mails, credit card numbers, and other sensitive pieces of information away from would-be hackers, identity thieves, and snooping governments.
That’s all well and good, certainly, but how does this help fans stream Better Call Saulf? It’s simple: remember how we said that the VPNs encrypted servers are set up all over the world? Well, when you log in to your VPN, you get to pick a server in the location of your choosing. If you pick, say, a UK-based server, your internet-ready device is given a UK-based IP address. This means your device now thinks you’re in the UK, and that means you can stream Netflix UK at your leisure.
This means you’re going to want a VPN with a lot of UK-based IP addresses, so we particularly recommend looking into Overplay VPN, HideMyAss VPN, IPVanish VPN, and PrivateInternetAccess VPN. Otherwise, check out our official supported provider list for any even greater swath of options.
