Since the release of Iron Man in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has gone on to amass more than 15.5 billion dollars. The success of the movies has spurred Marvel to continue creating series based on characters that appear in their comic books, the latest of which is Cloak & Dagger.
Cloak & Dagger follows two teenagers, Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, who acquire superpowers after two life-changing events and realize that their powers work better when they are together.
The show started airing on June 7, will conclude on August 2, and is exclusive to FreeForm, an American cable and satellite television channel that is geo-blocked outside of the United States.
This means that anyone that happens to be living outside of the US right has no way of watching it… Unless they have a VPN installed.
How Does That Work?
Well, a VPN, or virtual private network, is a service that operates servers around the world with the aim of rerouting users’ traffic through them. This means that the traffic enters the server with its original IP, but leaves it with a new, local IP. So if you go through a US server, the online service you are trying to reach will see you as if you are coming from within the US. As you may have guessed, this method will let you watch Cloak & Dagger from anywhere in the world.
How Can I Do It?
Simple. Download a VPN – there are many solid options out there, we’ll get onto recommendations in a bit – and install it on any of its compatible devices. Turn it on, pick a US server to connect through. Now go back to your browser and visit FreeForm streaming channel. Enjoy the show.
VPNs offer a number of perks. They enable you to circumvent geographic restrictions as we’ve mentioned above, but they also buff up your security using state of the art encryption. Another important factor regarding VPNs is speed. Not to mince words, VPNs will decrease your connection speed, that is because your traffic will be taking a longer route. The effect is typically minimal, but when it comes to streaming, you should make that your top priority when choosing a service. This is why we recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest we know of.

Still unsure if you should give Cloak & Dagger a try? Well, you should at least check out the backstory to the show before you make up your mind.
