How to watch Now TV abroad?

Some of our favourite sites and services are not available outside of the UK which can prove rather difficult when you want to stream your favourite shows abroad. This is referred to as geo-blocking, something which unfortunately applies to Now TV. There is, however, a workaround for this issue and it comes in the form of a VPN, or virtual private network.
