Want to watch IASIP on Netflix but don’t know which regional catalog is holding the gang hostage? Don’t fret – just click on the link above, and StreamCatcher will provide the latest info about where you can watch it. Netflix frequently drops shows from certain regions, only for them to pop up elsewhere, so it’s worth keeping it bookmarked for future reference.
Where to Watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Netflix
At the time of writing, the show is only available to viewers in the United Kingdom. Pretty odd that it’s not even available on US Netflix, considering the show is based in Philadelphia, but hey. Why do media companies restrict their products to a few countries like this? The answer is, as always, money.
Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to bypass such restrictions nowadays. You’ll find all you need to know in the next section.
How to Watch IASIP on Netflix from Anywhere
Don’t want to spend over $150 buying the series digitally or sub to a different streaming service? Thanks to the same arbitrary regional restrictions, there might not even be another streaming platform that carries the show in your area. In any case, the only reliable option to watch IASIP on Netflix is to spoof your location with a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
It’s quite a quick process actually, and StreamCatcher lets you know which VPNs can currently unblock the Netflix UK library. More on that in a second, but all you need to do is:
- Sign up with one of the recommended VPN providers.
- Download their app on your device(s) – thankfully most VPNs nowadays are compatible with all major platforms (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, even Linux in some cases, and more).
- Start up the VPN client and select a UK server from the list.
Now you should see productions only available in the United Kingdom when you access your Netflix account. Yes, including the loveable gang of goofballs.
But anyway, why is your choice of VPN so important? The answer is pretty simple: Netflix and co. aggressively go after attempts to bypass their geo-restrictions. This is mostly due to pressure from movie and TV show studios, as Netflix themselves would love nothing more than to bring their full catalog to wider audiences.
Unfortunately, it’s going to be a while before that happens (if ever). Until then, the company is stuck banning VPN IP address ranges and using traffic analysis techniques to block VPN traffic. Thankfully, sub-based providers always stay ahead of the “cat and mouse” game by widening their server networks, as well as improving their obfuscation methods to stay under the radar.
Can I Watch IASIP with a Free VPN?
It’s a nice thought, but impossible due to the same reasons stated above. Free VPNs simply can’t keep up with how fast Netflix and other streaming platforms blacklist their IPs. Nor can they afford to develop their clients to bypass Netflix’s built-in filtering systems.
At best, you can unblock some geo-restricted articles and maybe some YouTube videos with a free VPN. Of course, don’t expect the greatest performance. Free providers usually throttle your bandwidth – which is fair, considering they need to level the playing field for thousands of other users. Moreover, they tend to have way fewer servers, meaning you’re bound to run into congestion problems.
At worst, you risk getting your browsing and location data sold to advertisers, or even leaked online – up for grabs by anyone looking to make a quick buck. That, or get your device outright infected with dangerous malware.
We don’t doubt the comedic genius of IASIP, but it’s probably not worth risking your livelihood over. And with so many VPNs nowadays offering 30 day money-back guarantees, you don’t really need to risk anything. Well, aside from the few minutes it takes to set things up.
