ABC doesn't stream live tv in my area yet. Windscribe free edition helps me watch from another localization. A few days ago it started giving an error message that I'm in another country and can't access their network. Actually using from MA. to NYC. Is there a way to see if it's ABC blocking vpn's now? Or something else? The vpn is working I tried other web sites to see.

ABC has a limited amount of cities it live streams from, tried all that are listed on Windscribe. Same error message. Thanks for replying.

Have you tried just streaming the NYC startion -- I assume that it's WABC-TV -- to your computer without a VPN? I've never heard of any station geoblocking someone who's located in the same country.

Second question: Are you using the free or paid version of Windscribe? I believe the paid version gives you a greater choice of VPN server locations.

If I had a tv tuner such as Hauppauge wintv tuner, that plugs into the usb port, then I could watch all local stations free. The tuner costs $60 or more, I'm paying for cable and they stream live tv. So why pay $60 more?

Windscribe vpn free version gives me all the cities that ABC live stream to, paying for the upgraded version won't help. Because even if I try Los Angelas or Chicago, they show the same "Out of the country" message. I was watching on the NYC location for a couple of months now.
