The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does work with 9Now
If you live in Australia, it’s quite certain that you already know of the channel that overtook SBS and even Network Ten – Nine Network. In 2016, Channel 9 launched its 9Now service to all cord-cutters in Australia. 9Now offers live streaming as well as on-demand content such as The Voice (Australia), Survivor (Australia), Lip Sync Battle, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and more. However, the channel is only available in Australia, meaning that anyone living abroad won’t be able to access its content. There’s a solution though. If you make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS, you can stream 9Now anywhere in the world.
Watch Channel 9 Anywhere Using Unlocator Smart DNS
As mentioned, Channel 9 is not available to viewers residing outside Australia. It applies geo-blocking, which restricts user access to the country itself. 9Now uses this technology mainly due to copyright reasons.
It examines a user’s IP address to determine his/her actual location. Once it pinpoints their whereabouts and it’s not in the land down under, the following error message pops up as soon as the website is visited:
“Sorry, 9Now is only available in Australia.”
Moreover, if users manage to enter the app or website, launching a video outside the country will result in yet another geo-error message. The error you get looks exactly like the following:
“This video is restricted from playing in your current geographic region. player_err_geo_restricted”
With Unlocator Smart DNS, getting 9Now overseas becomes a simple task. It reroutes some of your traffic that showcase your physical location and tricks the channel into thinking that you reside within its area of coverage.
As a result, you’ll be able to stream 9Now no matter where you are. Unlocator Smart DNS does not change your IP address, which means that you can navigate between your local channels and restricted ones simultaneously.
Moreover, it doesn’t encrypt your data, allowing you to watch UltraHD content with minimal speed loss. Configuring Unlocator Smart DNS is pretty simple. All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and follow the setup guides based on the platform you’re operating. Once that is done, you can watch Channel 9 anywhere.
Stream 9Now Outside Australia With Unlocator VPN
Unlocator VPN is a different approach to the matter that results in the same outcome. Unlike Smart DNS, Unlocator VPN does alter your IP address, replacing it with one based on the server you connect to. Once you connect, the VPN encrypts your data and anonymizes your internet browsing, making you completely untraceable online.
The new IP address you get will show that you’re in a different country, virtually situated in the region where the server is based. As a result, you’ll be able to access all geo-restricted content in the territory despite being physically elsewhere.
For example, if you connect to an Australian server, you’ll receive an IP address in Australia. Consequently, you’ll be able to watch Channel 9 and other Aussie streaming services anywhere. The connection process is very simple.
First, you need to get yourself a free Unlocator trial. Next, download the Unlocator VPN app on Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows. Finally, sign in with your credentials, connect to an Australian server, and watch 9Now wherever you are.
