New York City is all ready to let the festive mood sink in as preparations for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade get underway. Celebrating its 92nd edition, the Parade will begin at the usual time 09:00 AM on Thursday, 22nd November 2018 from the 77th Street and Central Park West (subject to change). The big legacy balloons, the huge gigantic floats, the heart-stopping marching bands, and the show-stealing performance groups are all set to kick-start the festive season yet again in America’s very own style. Glittered with celebrities all along, the Macy’s 92nd Thanksgiving Day Parade too will have a long list of performing celebrities. All that and of course the tradition of Santa Claus rounding it off has made the Parade one of America’s favorite annual event.
Around three million people gather around Manhattan every year on an average to attend the Parade while only Macy’s workers are allowed to participate in the Parade. Not just that, millions of other Americans tune into NBC every year to get their dose of the Thanksgiving Day Parade in the comfort of their couch. The popularity in America for it has seen people from outside of America too willing to watch the parade. However, with NBC’s limited broadcast coverage, it is next to impossible for all the Non-American fans to enjoy the Parade.
However, as has been the case ever since they were introduced, VPNs have made it possible with their servers located inside the US and across the globe for people to watch the Parade despite the geographical limitations. With time, the VPN market has expanded to 74 names now, which has made it difficult for people to decide which one to go for. To cut short that confusion, we bring you a detailed guide on how to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade via VPNs and the three best VPNs to do so.
How To Watch Macys Parade 2018 via VPNs
Macy’s have now made arrangements for streaming the Parade live via YouTube in association with Verizon. Verizon will have the camera installed all along the route to give 360° view of the entire parade. The stream will be available on Macy’s YouTube channel but again, might be possible with a geographical restriction. You won’t be able to stream the Parade on NBC via VPNs that quickly, but streaming via YouTube will be pretty much easier. Here are the steps you need to follow to watch via VPN.
Step 1 – Select a VPN of your choice and get it installed on your device.
Step 2 – After installing, the first thing you’ll be asked to do is register yourself.
Step 3 – After registering you’ll be required to select a package of your choice and make the payment.
Step 4 – Once done, you’ll now be able to mask your location and select the location of your choice, the US most probably.
Step 5 – Once done with the location, you can now select the channel and enjoy the parade.

Best VPNs To Watch Macy’s 2018 Thanksgiving Parade
The VPN market has become more or less crowded with so many service providers coming up almost every other day. However, the top guns have ensured the first choice remains the same. Here are the first options available for you to choose from.
With high speeds, highest streaming quality, and no-leakage security, ExpressVPN stands proudly as the top choice. Also, its large number of servers located in the US and across the globe make it a viable option.
What makes NordVPN the top choice are its low priced subscription charges. It provides the general security features with high-quality stream and significant speed connection.
Not amongst the best in the market, but for the Parade, it surely is a top choice as it allows you access to NBC‘ stream as well. Quality and speed are usually fast, but there are a few loopholes with no access to Netflix and Torrenting.
