Unblock CW Network

The CW Network, is an American broadcast television network. Its popularity is ever increasing thanks to top hit series like Nikita, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, The Originals, Reign, and Hart of Dixie. The CW Network is geo-restricted outside the USA. Therefore, people living in the UK, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere abroad must make use of Unlocator VPN and Smart DNS to unblock and watch The CW Network abroad.

Unblock The CW Network Outside US Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Much like other geo-restricted streaming services, CW TV blocks access to people living outside its region. According to their official website:

“Currently, our shows are only available to watch via streaming video in the U.S.”

Hence, you cannot watch CW abroad. If you do try to access CW episodes outside the US, you’ll receive a regional error message which prevents you from streaming. To bypass that geographic error, you have to spoof your online location. In other words, make CW think that you’re located in the USA. Unlocator Smart DNS lets you do exactly that by redirecting the URLs that help determine your whereabouts.

Sign up for Unlocator, then follow these setup guides based on the platform you’re operating. Once that is done, you will be able to watch all episodes available on CW outside the US. There is no need to install additional software. Unlocator Smart DNS doesn’t change your IP address, neither does it affect your internet speed.

Watch CW TV Abroad With Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN approaches the issue differently. Your IP address does get altered so that you appear elsewhere. It provides dozens of servers around the world for you to connect to, including ones in the US. Once you’re connected, you take on an American IP address and appear to be browsing straight from the US. As a result, when you try to access CW TV, you’ll notice that the geographical ban has been lifted and you can watch all your shows abroad.

A VPN encrypts your data so that you are perfectly secure when online. It also hides your IP address, disallowing your ISP and any other party from spying on your browsing activities. All you have to do is subscribe to Unlocator, install Unlocator on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows, and get CW TV wherever you are in the world.

Note: Unlike other American streaming channels, you do not need a US cable subscription stream on CW TV’s app. In case you run into any issue, you can always get in touch with our support crew by filling up this form.
