Stream How I Met Your Mother from anywhere else

ExpressVPN | From $6.67 / £5.50 per month
For those who can't easily watch How I Met Your Mother online - or are lumbered with expensive, unappealing deals - a VPN is your best option. 

What is a VPN, though? It's a 'Virtual Private Network' that tricks your internet into thinking you're somewhere else. That gives you a way around region restrictions, letting you watch shows that aren't normally available where you are. We'd argue that ExpressVPN is the best and easiest one to go with.

When it comes to How I Met Your Mother via VPN, we'd suggest using a UK server and the UK version of Netflix. That one has every season and episode, letting you binge the whole lot as and when you like. You can also use a VPN to sign up for the US Hulu streaming service if you prefer though.

There are free simple steps to follow:

1: Get a cheap VPN installed. There are plenty of options, but we'd point you in the direction of ExpressVPN. There's even an offer on right now where you can get an additional three months FREE on a 12-month package and save 49%. Happily, ExpressVPN is also compatible with pretty much everything.

2: Connect to a UK server. Because the UK version of Netflix has all of How I Met Your Mother, we'd suggest connecting to a UK server to access it.

3: Head over to Netflix. Once you set your location, visit Netflix, sign up as normal/log in, and start watching!View Deal
