watch Chicago med 8

Chicago Med season 8 is over, but it looks like we’ve got a bit of a wait before season nine, so now’s your chance to catch up! The show’s eighth season boasts another slate of medical emergencies, plenty of personal drama, and the departure of a major character, so it’s well worth your time! Read on to find out how to stream Chicago Med season eight from anywhere.

Remember, we don’t recommend using unofficial sources. These tend to have very low video quality and are frequently taken offline for violating copyright. In contrast, official streams guarantee you the best-possible experience and with plenty of ways to watch (some of which offer a free trial), there’s simply no need to go anywhere else.

Chicago Med season 8 is only available on geo-restricted streaming services. This means that if you’re traveling abroad, you’ll need the help of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to regain access to your usual streaming platforms.

How to stream Chicago Med online from anywhere

VPNs encrypt a user’s internet traffic and hide their true location, which helps keep their activities private while preserving their anonymity. However, these services can also be used to unblock region-locked services while on vacation.

Here’s how to watch Chicago Med abroad:

  1. The first step is deciding which VPN to use. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two great alternatives that work well with most streaming services.
  2. Install the VPN app onto whichever device you plan to stream with. Most major providers allow six or so connections at once, so it’s fine if you watch TV on multiple devices.
  3. Log into your VPN and connect to a server in your home country. This will change your IP address and allow you to access the same services you’d use back home.
  4. Try to play a video on your preferred streaming service. If you’re still seeing errors, we’d recommend clearing your cookies and trying again. Failing this, you might want to try a different server or get in touch with your VPN’s customer support team.


NordVPN offers a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for streaming with no restrictions for a full month. This is perfect for travelers looking to stay up-to-date with their favorite show during a trip abroad.

There are no hidden termsjust let customer support know within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.
