How to See Your Shows During Long Journeys Abroad

Does this scenario sound familiar to you? While sitting around a table enjoying dinner with friends, one of them starts chatting about a TV show you aren’t caught up with watching, and the rest of the bunch enthusiastically joins in the conversation. Before you know it, you’re hearing revelations of all kinds of massive spoilers before you’ve even had a chance to binge the new season! 

Or perhaps you’ve been in the office breakroom when your co-workers start a lively chat about a popular TV show you haven’t even gotten around to begin watching yet. There’s not much that’s more awkward than feeling left out of a conversation and having nothing to contribute!

Not surprisingly, this tends to happen all the time to people who travel abroad for extended periods of time. International longterm travel used to be a serious source of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) when it came to unwatched TV shows…

…Until now! Streaming apps like Hulu, Netflix, and Disney+ put your favorite TV shows just one click away, no matter where you are in the world! As long as you are connected to a WiFi or cellular network and your mobile device or laptop computer supports streaming, you’re all set! All you need is a subscription to any of these streaming powerhouses, and voila! You’re all caught up and ready to talk TV with your friends or co-workers once you return to the States.

World travelers enjoy purchasing special gift cards for streaming services, such as the US Hulu gift card, so they can effortlessly and affordably maintain their subscriptions while they are abroad. Gift cards like these also make an ideal bon voyage present for the globe-trotter in your life. Giving the gift of online TV streaming helps your friends and relatives who travel frequently stay on top of all of their favorite American TV shows, helping them stay connected to their loved ones (including you!) while they are far from home. 

Streaming TV through mobile apps is easy as 1-2-3, and with a US Hulu gift card, it’s also quite affordable! Once upon a time, if you missed a TV show and didn’t own a VCR to tape it, you’d never get the chance to see it again. Even the more recent DVR allowed you to record programs that you could then only watch once you returned home from your journey. Streaming has changed the way we watch TV around the world. We’re now able to access our favorite episodes of U.S. TV shows at the touch of a button, no matter how many miles away we are from our comfy living room couch! People who travel frequently and spend long periods of time abroad can still catch the latest episodes of their favorite shows, making it easier to return to their lives- and important TV discussions- once they get back home!
