Elon Musk on SNL
Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is ready to make his much anticipated appearance as a host on Saturday Night Live (SNL) on May 8, and we can’t wait to see just how much is appearance is going to affect his recent favourite cryptocurrency, Dogecoin. He is also one of the few business tycoons to host Saturday Night Live.
Musk’s recent tweet on his SNL appearance was a picture of him with Miley Cyrus, The Kid Laroi, and the Dogecoin’s mascot, AKA a Shibu Ina, and it has (again) caused the prices of Dogecoin to rise high.

However, NBC has made the availability of SNL difficult in countries abroad. Saturday Night Live is not broadcasted on any channel in India. It’s only possible to watch SNL on the NBC app only by using a VPN as the app is not available on Google Play Store in India.
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to route your IP address and traffic through different servers in a different country, allowing you to access content in regions that you are blocked or restricted from accessing. When using a VPN, your data is protected and you get additional security features that keep you safe. If you are unable to access NBC in your country, using a VPN lets you bypass any restrictions.
With a proper VPN you can stream all your favorite shows as if you are in the US. You can try ExpressVPN, as it is currently the most famous VPN in the world. IPVanish VPN, Private Internet Access, CyberGhost VPN , are also other mostly used VPNs. Here’s another list of available VPNs.
