Just because NBC isn't available everywhere doesn't mean you need to miss Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 if you're away from home. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service.


Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use.
