Why Do you Need a VPN to watch Once Upon a Time?

Why is Once Upon a Time not available everywhere? Despite being an American show, the only place Netflix has the option to play it, is in Belgium. Because of the antiquated licensing rights, that is the only place they can show it. Because of that, you won’t be able to find it anywhere else.

Fortunately, ExpressVPN will help you get around this issue. It will change your IP address to one in Belgium. This will also mask your current IP and help you appear in Belgium. Additionally, it will unblock the streaming service or the regional library and help you watch any show that you want. Then, you can gain access to other channels that may not be available in your region. Watch your favorite shows unrestricted with a VPN.

Fairytales with a twist

As a teenager, Emma moves away from home to Boston where she becomes a police officer for eight years before being fired by her superior because he felt that “she was too emotionally involved” with some cases. Three days after leaving Boston, Emma reunites with her son Henry whom she gave up for adoption 10 years ago. He tells Emma about his book “Once Upon a Time”, which is about the fairytale characters that are cursed to live in our modern world, and gives her a key. Intrigued by his story, Emma goes home to Storybrooke with Henry.

Upon arriving in Storybrooke, Emma learns that all of the residents do not remember their true identities; they only know themselves through the curse. Emma does meet one person who remembers their true identity, Mary Margaret Blanchard (Snow White). As she gets to know everyone, including an outcast named August W. Booth (Pinocchio) and Sidney Glass (The Magic Mirror) start having a nagging feeling that she has been to this town before. Emma eventually breaks the curse with the help of her son, her friends, and true love, Prince Charming.

Here is a look at the trailer for the show.
