watch Shameless US online

All good things come to an end and this was the case for Shameless US in April 2021 when it aired for the final time after 11 seasons. The good news is that you can catch up on all 134 episodes. However, you may need a Virtual Private Network (VPN). That’s because Showtime is region-locked and only available in the US. In fact, if you try to live stream Showtime content outside the US, you’ll encounter this message:

Showtime is accessible for viewing solely in the United States and its territories and possessions.

Please keep in mind that we’re only recommending official sources for watching Shameless season online. Unauthorized streams are common but tend to offer poor video quality. Furthermore, such streams are prone to excessive lag and buffering, plus they can be taken offline without warning for copyright infringement. With several ways to watch Showtime, there’s no need to take any risks risk with dodgy unlicensed sources.

Shameless US is available to stream on region-locked platforms. In order to stream Shameless on your home service while traveling abroad, you’ll need a VPN.

How to stream Shameless US online

Using a VPN to watch Shameless from anywhere is easier than you might think, even if you’ve never used a VPN before.

Here’s how to watch Shameless US online abroad:

  1. First, sign up with a reputable VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are equally reliable alternatives.
  2. Next, download and install the VPN app for the device from which you want to watch Shameless. There’s also the option of using a browser extension.
  3. Open your VPN app or browser extension and connect to a server in the US to get a US IP address. This will trick Showtime into allowing you to watch from abroad.
  4. Sign in to the Showtime website or app and select a stream which should now play without interruption.
  5. If it’s still blocked, clear your browser’s cache and cookies. Alternatively, try another US server in case the one you’re using has been blacklisted.

Failing the above, you can always get in touch with your VPN’s customer support which may be able to provide further assistance.

How to watch Shameless online on US TV

There are several ways in which you can watch Shameless US on US TV. The popular TV series is from Showtime and, if you have cable, you can add the channel to your pay-TV subscription. Then simply sign in using the same login details that you use with your cable TV provider (usually an email address or username and password).

However, you can also watch Showtime without cable. Paramount+ is now the streaming home of Showtime. A subscription costs $11.99 USD a month and it also includes a 7-day free trial. There’s also the option to watch Showtime as an add-on via the following streaming services: FuboTVHuluSling TV, and YouTube TV. This works out to be more expensive though.

It’s also possible to find all 11 seasons of Shameless on HBO Max. A subscription with ads included is priced at $9.99/month while ad-free costs $15.99 monthly.

All of the above services are region-locked and only available in the US. However, you can watch them abroad with a VPN. NordVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can try it out risk-free and receive a full refund if you claim within the 30-day period.

Where else can I watch Shameless US online?

Seasons 1–11 of Shameless are available on Netflix in 16 countries including the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, Italy, and Japan. Subscription prices vary by country but in the US, you can expect to pay anything from $6.99/month (Standard with ads) to $22.99/month (Premium).

If you’re traveling abroad but still want to continue watching Shameless on your home country version of Netflix, you’ll need to change your IP address with a VPN.

Can I use a free VPN to watch Shameless?

The likes of Showtime, Paramount+, HBO Max, and Netflix are all geo-restricted and as a result, many free VPNs (and even some paid VPNs) struggle to unblock them abroad. However, that’s not the only reason we recommend avoiding free VPNs; they also tend to struggle when it comes to speed; too many users and too few servers lead to long periods of buffering and choppy, low-resolution playback.

Security is another area where free VPNs are all too often lacking. Some don’t even protect you from data leaks or keep your data secure using encryption. Further, very few free VPNs have a true no-logs policy. This means there’s a possibility that your personal information and browsing history is being tracked and sold to third parties. In summary, the difference between free VPNs and the best-paid VPNs are night and day.

Will there be a Shameless season 12?

Sadly not! The final episode of the US version of Shameless aired in April 2021. There are no plans for another season of the show or even a spin-off at the time of writing. Fortunately, fans of Shameless have 11 seasons and 134 episodes to look back on and watch time and again.
