Do I Need a VPN to Watch City on a Hill?
Showtime is a premium American network and is only available in the US. To watch it anywhere outside the United States, you’ll need to connect to a VPN. Although some countries offer the network in packages, the best way to watch the network online or on the go is to use the streaming app.
Connecting to an ExpressVPN server will help you get past any geo-restrictions. It does that by changing your IP address to a US number. Doing so will make Showtime’s blocking software think you are stateside. In addition to Showtime, it will help you gain access to other channels and streaming services that may not be available in your region. That way, you can watch the third season of City on a Hill or anything else on the network that you want to watch.
This show has an overwhelmingly positive reception
The show, City on a Hill, has high approval ratings on two really well-known rating sites. It generally has favorable reviews because it scored 76% on one and almost as high on the other. As with most crime dramas, the show follows the formula of the “crime or adventure of the week” style. That means each episode has the potential to stand on its own. That is great if you miss an episode because the show does not necessarily build previous episodes.
