To watch Comedy Central outside the US, the first thing you need is a quality VPN. Not all VPNs are ideal for bypassing geo-restrictions.

For this, we prefer ExpressVPN, because you can stream using the in-built obfuscated servers which ensure you can unlock CC US abroad without being detected.

2. Connect to the correct server

  1. Visit your VPN provider’s website. (We used ExpressVPN for Windows PC)
  2. Download the correct app for your device.installing expressvpn
  3. Install the VPN app you have just downloaded.
  4. Then, login with VPN credentials.expressvpn log in screen

3. Subscribe to a TV provider

Only VPNs are not enough to get access to the US Comedy Central. You must have a subscription to a supported TV provider or platform in order to watch this channel.

There are many providers. But, We suggest one of the following ones for the best experience.

Here’s where to watch Comedy Central:

1. YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great way to watch live TV channels online. Like YouTube premium, it is also a subscription-based service. Comedy Central live is available here.

It is also very easy to subscribe to as it is a service from Google. You can use just a USA address along with a proper zip code. In most cases, the existing payment method you are using to purchase anything in USD is enough. Otherwise, you must need a USA payment method.

2. Hulu

Hulu is a very well-known streaming platform like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, etc. However, It also has a live TV service that comes with an additional subscription. 

You can watch US Comedy Central using Hulu from anywhere in the world including Australia if you have a proper VPN service.

3. Sling TV

Sling TV is another popular platform that offers Comedy Central for live streaming. Though it is a dedicated TV streaming platform, you can subscribe to it by using a gift card like Hulu. It’s only available in the US but you can bypass location errors with a VPN.

4. FuboTV

Along with many on-demand contents, FuboTV also offers Comedy Central live streaming. Like the Sling TV, it is also well known for live TV services.

5. DirectTV

DirectTV is a very popular choice for online TV streamers. Along with more than 40,000+ on-demand content, DirectTV offers a wide range of live TV channels.

If you already have a subscription with DirectTV, you can watch US Comedy Central from Australia on this platform.

6. Paramount+

The new streaming Platform Paramount+ is a subscription-based service like Netflix. You can watch content from Comedy Central by using this subscription. In our opinion, this is the best option for most users as it is pretty affordable, and both Paramount+ and CC are from the same owner.

Paramount+ also has a TV streaming service. However, it doesn’t offer so many channels like the other ones mentioned above.

Is Comedy Central available in the USA only?

Comedy Central (CC) is not exclusively available in the United States. Along with the USA, it is available in a limited number of countries. However, the CC USA has a fantastic range of content. Even though it is available in a few other countries, it doesn’t provide that much better content there.

It is possible that the original owner of some contents or CC itself has not signed any deal to make these contents global. As a result, people cannot watch specific CC content everywhere. For example, CC UK has its own library that is different from CC USA.

There is no official statement as to why CC is not available in every country. However, It is possible that Comedy Central may not be available in every country due to the streaming and copyright law and the business plan of Paramount Global.

Whatever is restricting the users does not matter. You can still watch Comedy Central US in Australia by following some specific steps.
