How To Unblock Acorn TV Outside the US Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Acorn TV offers UK TV shows such as Agatha Christie’s Poirot, A Place to Call Home, Brokenwood Mysteries, The Code, Doc Martin, Eleventh Hour, and Murdoch Mysteries. To unblock Acorn TV and watch these shows outside th US simply start out by creating a free Unlocator trial. Once you have registered your account then head on over to the setup guides and find the device you plan to use to watch Acorn TV. At the bottom of this page you can see the devices that are supported by our Smart DNS and Acorn TV.

Once you have configured and restarted your device you can simply start streaming Acorn TV as you normally would. What happens is that our Smart DNS will make sure that every time Acorn TV tries to determine your location via your IP address then we will send a US IP instead. This will trick Acorn into thinking that you are located in the US regardless of your real location.

The beauty of Smart DNS is that it will not affect other websites and services. Our system will unblock streaming services on a case by case basis. This means that all the major streaming services will always see you appear in the country needed to stream the service. Best of all it all happens behind the scenes.

Use VPN to Unblock Acorn TV Outside the US

Even though no tech skills are required to configure your device to use Smart DNS there are still users who prefer to use VPN instead. When you register for a free Unlocator trial then you get access to our VPN network as well. We have apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows and you can also install VPN directly on your router.

With VPN all your traffic is encrypted and will be routed trough the location you choose within the app. In the case of Acorn TV you would select one of the US locations and connect. In a matter of seconds all your traffic will be routed through the US server and this is where you will appear to be located to Acorn TV and any other website. Basically you can unblock just about any website and service by using VPN.

Additionally you get the added security and privacy that comes along with using VPN. This is handy if you connect to public WiFi that you find in locations like hotels, airports, cafes, restaurants, conferences, schools and the likes. The fact of the matter is that it’s very unsecure to connect to these types of networks without the security of VPN. Other users connected to the network will be able to harvest unsecure transmissions made over the network. This could include private details, emails and passwords. So if you ever connect to these types of networks then VPN is a must. Not only for unblock Acorn TV but also as a security measure.

Both Smart DNS and VPN are included in the free Unlocator trial. Give both a try and see which you prefer and happy viewing.
