Canal+ is a French cable provider that broadcast both foreign shows and movies as well as original French content such as Les Guignols de l’info; Groland; H; Jamel Comedy Club; Spiral (Engrenages) ; Mafiosa; Le Journal du Hard; Pigalle la Nuit; La Commune; Braquo; Reporters; Scalp; Le Grand Journal; La Matinale; Le petit journal; La Nouvelle Edition; Lundi Investigation; Canal Football Club; Dimanche+; Maison Close; Les Revenants; The Spy.

Access to Canal+ is restricted to France. This means that when the website detects your are located outside France then you will be unable to stream Canal+. The solution here is it fake your location by using Unlocator Smart DNS, which will make you appear to be located in France regardless of your real location.

Sign up for Unlocator and follow the setup guides for your device. Once your device have been set up to use Unlocator Smart DNS then you can stream Canal+ as if you were in France. No more geo blocks.’

Another way to bypass the geographical restrictions is by using Unlocator VPN. When using a VPN, your data connection becomes encrypted and all your data will leave trough the server in a the country of your choice. In this case you would select a french VPN server in the app to connect to. Once connected you will be able to stream Canal+ from anywhere.

If you use Smart DNS or VPN does not really matter. It’s really a question of temperament. In some cases you will be better off using VPN. For an instance if you are located in a hotel or airport as you will most likely not be able to use Smart DNS because of the way these types of networks are controlled.
