FYI

There are a lot of things media-wise that don't work in Mexico. And that is because the tv "knows" where it was sold. Having faced the "receiving US tv" challenge for the past couple years, I will share some experience.

Never ever mention VPN to anybody except the support people from your VPN provider.

You might need to change your VPN server because there are location restrictions in the US as well. For example, connected to Los Angeles1, ESPN doesn't work, so I switch to Dallas2. But then I have to switch back to LA1 for Paramount+. When you log into your VPN provider's interface, you should see how to do that.

Streaming services are terrible. They have managed to combine the worst aspects of cable tv, antenna tv, the early days of file-sharing, and make it cost more. It's not your fault.

If you REALLY want that tv to be an Estadounidense Google the model number and "region reset." You should be able to find the code (it will look like: press vol down 3 times, then simultaneously press channel up and 5) that will let you change it to a US tv. That will of course introduce a whole new set of problems and wipe out any stored passwords, but it will likely solve your immediate problem.

Good luck!
