How to Watch The Dropout Online From Anywhere

By Lore Apostol / February 28, 2022

A new original series called The Dropout inspired by the story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is set to premiere soon, and you will be able to watch it online quite easily since the title will be available on more than one streaming service. We have all the information you may need, so let's see when, where, and how to watch The Dropout online from anywhere.

The Dropout is inspired by the ABC News podcast of the same name chronicling the rise and fall of the world's youngest self-made female billionaire, Elizabeth Holmes, and her company, Theranos. The series tries to put a light on how she managed to lose it all in the blink of an eye.

The Dropout series is created by Searchlight Television and 20th Television, being Searchlight Television's first production. The limited series stars Amanda Seyfried as Elizabeth Holmes and Naveen Andrews as Sunny Balwani. It also includes guest stars Utkarsh Ambudkar, Kate Burton, Michel Gill, LisaGay Hamilton, William H. Macy, Elizabeth Marvel, Laurie Metcalf, Dylan Minnette, Alan Ruck, Sam Waterston, Michaela Watkins, and more.

You will be able to watch The Dropout online on March 3, 2022, and since the title is a Hulu/Star Original limited series, it will be available exclusively on Hulu and on Disney's Star service. The eight-episode series will launch its first three episodes exclusively on Hulu in the US and internationally on the Disney Plus Star service simultaneously on March 3, with new episodes being released on a one-per-week schedule after that. As it happens with most of the on-demand streaming services, this title might as well land sometime after midnight PT.

How to Watch The Dropout Online From Anywhere

As long as you are in your country, you can stream your favorite content through the service that hosts the title. If you travel, things change - almost all the streaming platforms are geo-blocked abroad and in some territories, so you might find yourself unable to access The Dropout series when you are abroad. All you need to bypass these restrictions and watch online from anywhere is a VPN subscription. VPNs lift the restrictions by changing your virtual location and making it appear like you are back home.

One of the best tools on the market right now is ExpressVPN, which we recommend if you want to easily unblock several streaming platforms, such as Netflix, Hulu, and others. It's extremely popular, it has thousands of servers all around the world, fast and stable connections, and strong encryption, and it's extremely easy to use, even for beginners. There's a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee included, so you can try ExpressVPN for 30 days RISK-FREE.

To get started, fill in your details to create an account on their website, then pay to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% discount and 3 months FREE). Make sure to select the best plan for you in case you decide to keep it after the 30 days end. Download and install the app suited for your device or system, open it, select a server in a location from back home, and turn on the tool. Now you're all set to watch The Dropout online from anywhere, so you can open the streaming platform to play when it becomes available on the service.

How to Watch The Dropout Online in the US

As we mentioned before, The Dropout is a Hulu original series, so this means you can easily watch this title by accessing it through the Hulu On-Demand library. So, the best and easiest way to do that is to subscribe to the Hulu streaming platform by creating an account and selecting one of the two base plans available. They both have a 7-day free trial, access to thousands of hit shows, movies, and more, and also the option of selecting Premium or Partner Add-ons for an additional monthly charge, such as HBO Max, Cinemax, STARZ, Showtime, and ESPN Plus.

The first is the ad-supported plan that costs just $6.99 per month and it's also the cheapest one. Eligible subscribers also have the option to sign up for annual billing and pay $69.99 per year for this plan. The second option is to go for the ad-free Hulu plan for $12.99 per month, and this one does not offer an annual price.

Besides the standalone service, there's also a pretty interesting deal currently available in the US. American customers can go for The Disney Bundle, which includes Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu with or without ads, all these for a discounted price. You save 25% if you subscribe to this bundle, compared to the monthly cost of subscribing to these three services separately. Moreover, you can choose between The Disney Bundle with ad-supported Hulu for $13.99 per month or the version that includes the no-ads Hulu for $19.99 per month.

Right now, customers in the US can also subscribe through Hulu + Live TV to get one of these special bundle deals that include the same Disney Plus and ESPN Plus platforms, but this time the bundle has Hulu + Live TV on offer.

We should start by mentioning that almost all of the live TV and streaming services have geo-restrictions in place, and that means you won't be able to access them in some territories and while traveling abroad. You can bypass their blockade and watch The Dropout using a capable VPN. Don't forget to pick a server from a location back home and turn on the VPN app before opening the streaming service.

How to Watch The Dropout in the UK

If you live in the UK, you can definitely watch The Dropout series online since the title will be available on the Star service of Disney Plus. It's pretty easy to subscribe to the Disney Plus streaming platform, and the subscription price includes Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic titles for £7.99 a month. There's also the option to save some money if you go for the annual subscription, which costs £79.90 a year at the moment.

As you've probably seen by now, almost all the streaming services on the market have geo-restrictions in place, and this means you won't be able to access your library to watch the series online while abroad. To bypass this issue, we recommend you get a capable VPN and change your IP Address to make it seem you are back home. All you need to do is choose a server located in your home country, turn on the VPN, and access the streaming platform to start watching the episodes after they premiere.

How to Watch The Dropout in Canada

Hulu/Star originals such as The Dropout series are bound to be available on the Star service that is included with the Disney Plus subscription. If you live in Canada, the subscription prices are $11.99 per month (plus taxes) and $119.99 per year at the moment. Of course, you will also get content belonging to Disney, Pixar, National Geographic, Star Wars, Marvel, and The Simpsons.

Streaming services are usually geo-blocked when you travel abroad or even to some other states. However, you will still be able to watch The Dropout episodes as long as you run a VPN in the background to make it look like you are back home. For this to work, you need to select a server located in your country and turn on the VPN before accessing the streaming service.

How to Watch The Dropout in Australia

If you live in Australia, you can watch The Dropout episodes when they premiere with a simple subscription to Disney Plus since this is a Hulu/Star original series. The platform has two tiers - you can pay $11.99 per month or $119.99 per year.

As you probably already know, live TV and streaming platforms are usually geo-restricted outside the country where you created your account. So, since you won't be able to access the services you use at home while traveling, it means you will need to get a good VPN to make it look like you are still at home. To watch the episodes abroad when they premiere, just select a server located in Australia, turn on the VPN, and open the streaming platform.
