Unblock CNN

CNN  gives you access to all the news covering US politics, sports, entertainment, health, travel, and more. Unfortunately, CNN is only available in the United States. So, if you live in countries like the UK, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere abroad, you’ll be instantly blocked as you try to view a video. Nevertheless, you can stream on CNN overseas by using Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

How to Unblock CNN Abroad With Unlocator Smart DNS

Whenever you try to watch any content on the official website or application while abroad, the video will keep on loading giving you no result in the end. Moreover, if you’re living outside the US borders, you’ll be greeted with a geo-error message.

However, with Unlocator Smart DNS, you’ll get to be up to date with all that’s going on in the US and the whole globe, regardless of where you’re located. It simply works by altering your online location. That way, CNN will believe that you’re currently within its territory. You’re IP doesn’t get affected at all, only the URLs that give up your location are tampered with. Other than that, you can now watch CNN anywhere you are in the world.

You can configure Unlocator Smart DNS on your device easily. Just sign up for Unlocator and follow the setup guides based on the platform you’re using.

Get CNN Outside the US With Unlocator VPN

As mentioned above, there’s another way to access CNN overseas; Unlocator VPN.  What differs here is that it does change your IP address depending on the server you’re connected to. In CNN’s case, it’s an American server. Once you connect, you’ll instantly obtain a US IP address, your data will be rerouted through that server, and you’ll appear to be browsing straight from the US. Now, when CNN reads your IP, it’ll unblock all it’s content considering you’re a virtual US resident now.

Unlocator VPN also adds an extra layer of protection to your online activities. With highly advanced security measures, you’re are able to safely browse the internet. Not to mention that Unlocator VPN will mask your IP address, granting you the privilege of surfing the web anonymously on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows.
