AMC has exclusively aired some of the most insanely popular shows in recent times such as The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Preacher and more. Some AMC shows can be streamed online free of cost and without even requiring the viewer to sign up, but there are only a few such shows.

Generally, you will need a Cable TV subscription from American providers like Spectrum, AT&T U-verse, Cox etc. in order to access most shows and movies available on AMC. Unfortunately, if you’re outside US, Canada, and a few other countries where these providers operate, you won’t be able to access majority of the content on AMC online streaming outside these countries.

However, if you are going to a vacation outside US or Canada and are a subscriber of cable/dish TV providers that support AMC, then it is possible to access AMC online from anywhere.

Though keep in mind that AMC is geo-restricted, which means that you will get an error if you try to access it outside US:

But the good thing is, if you have a cable subscription that allows you to access AMC online in US, then you can unblock AMC anywhere in the world with a VPN.

The problem is, only a few VPNs are powerful enough to undo geo-blocks placed on AMC. Some of the best of these are:

  1. ExpressVPN – Instantly unblocks AMC outside US and supports high quality streaming.
  2. Surfshark– Superior ability to unblock AMC at high picture quality.
  3. PureVPN – Perfectly capable of accessing AMC, but streaming quality may not be that high on slower connections.

How to Unblock AMC with a VPN

Step 1: Subscribe to a VPN having servers in the US such as ExpressVPN and download it in your system.


Step 2: Launch the VPN app and sign in.

Step 3: Connect to a US server.

Step 4: Visit AMC and enjoy watching favorite shows and movies anywhere.

Best VPNs to watch AMC outside US

To find the best VPN for accessing AMC, I tried out different options and tested their performance with AMC. Below, you can find videos of me testing these VPNs in order to confirm their ability to unblock AMC outside US.

1. ExpressVPN ($6.67/mo)

ExpressVPN is an excellent service for unblocking AMC outside US. Testing ExpressVPN for AMC, I found it working superbly as you can see in the video above. Connected to the Los Angeles – 2 server, I was instantly able to unblock AMC and watch “The Broken And The Bad Hosted By Giancarlo Esposito“.

The video quality might not seem in the recorded video above, but it was excellent. I’d put it near 720p at least even though my base Internet connection is below average in terms of speed. So, if you have even a half decent Internet connection, you’ll probably get excellent video quality when streaming AMC with ExpressVPN.

Other than AMC, ExpressVPN also efficiently unblocks other US-based streaming services. For instance, you can watch CBS outside US , Amazon Prime & Netflix with ExpressVPN and also watch HBO Now abroad.

The only drawback is that ExpressVPN is slightly more expensive than other providers in the market, costing $6.67/mo .

2. Surfshark ($2.49/mo)

Surfshark offers 500+ servers in the US alone, many of which work well for unblocking AMC. I tested Surfshark’s unblocking capability and performance for AMC, and I was delighed with the results.

As you can see in the video above, Surfshark’s US – Bend server allowed me to instantly gain access to AMC with very impressive video quality (720p and above). The show that I’m watching is “The Salisbury Poisonings“, which can be viewed on AMC even if you don’t have any cable subscription.

Aside from AMC, Surfshark is quite a capable VPN for granting access to other streaming services. For instance, it works well for unblocking Disney Plus outside US and can also be used to access NBC anywhere in the world.

For all its excellent qualities, Surfshark still maintains very affordable pricing with some of its plans available for as low as $2.49/mo

3. PureVPN ($3.33/mo)

PureVPN provides a huge 490+ servers network in the US that make it an ideal choice to unblock AMC content from anywhere. I had no problems whatsoever when using PureVPN to access AMC as you can see in the video above.

When testing PureVPN for AMC, I simply connected to the US server location in the “Stream Mode”, which allowed me to access AMC and stream the show “The Walking Dead“. While I was able to unblock the show, the video quality was quite unimpressive (240p at best), especially on my low speed Internet connection.

As such, there’s no doubt that PureVPN will work fine to give you access to AMC, but the streamig quality might not be as good as what other providers delivered in my testing.

Nonetheless, PureVPN is generally a powerful unblocker of streaming services. For instance, you can watch Pluto TV outside US with PureVPN and unblock Crackle as well.

You can get PureVPN for $3.33/mo , which makes it one of the cheapest services available.
