Unblock Discovery+

Discovery+ is a streaming service created and owned by none other than Discovery, Inc. The channel brings all kinds of content from several channels, including HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Animal Planet, OWN, Discovery, Discovery+ Originals, Magnolia Network, A&E, Lifetime, History, and more. Technically, Discovery+ is available in several countries around the world, but the content it offers differs based on the region. So far, the biggest library lies in the US, which can only be accessed by the country’s residents. However, if you make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS, Discovery Plus can be available to you no matter where you are.

Unblock Discovery+ Anywhere With Unlocator Smart DNS

Your physical location dictates what you get to access online. Services and websites can determine your location by examining your IP address. If your traffic is originating from a country where the service does not have the rights to broadcast, you get blocked almost instantly.

For example, if you try to access the Indian version of Discovery Plus from abroad, this error message is what you’ll get in return:

“Our content is only available in India. Sorry for the inconvenience.”

As for the one in the United States, the page doesn’t load, to begin with. For instance, if you reside in Canada and you try to access Discovery Plus, this is what you’ll receive:

“This page is not available at this time.”

We had to address the problem in order to give you the solution. It comes in the form of Unlocator Smart DNS, a technology created to alter a user’s location and make it appear as if he/she is browsing the web from the country where the channel is available.

Smart DNS reroutes the parts of your traffic that highlight your location. Once configured on your device, you’ll be able to stream Discovery Plus no matter where you physically reside. All you have to do is subscribe to Unlocator, follow the setup guides based on the platform you’re using, restart the device, and watch Discovery+ anywhere.

Please note that Smart DNS does not tamper with your IP address. With your IP intact, you get to navigate between your local channels and geo-restricted ones at will. Not to mention that it provides great speeds since no encryption is present.

Watch Discovery Plus Anywhere Using Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is a different approach to unblocking geo-restricted content. While the methods differ from Smart DNS in all ways, the end result is always the same, unblocked channels everywhere. Unlike Smart DNS, Unlocator VPN does change your IP to match that of the region where the channel is available.

With Unlocator VPN, you get to choose a server in a country of your choosing. In Discovery Plus’ case, a US server is needed. Now, once you establish a connection, you’ll receive a US IP address, granting you full access to Discovery Plus no matter where you are.

Unblocking channels abroad isn’t the only benefit you get from Unlocator VPN. In fact, once you’re connected, the VPN encrypts your data (enhances security) and hides your original IP (enhances privacy). That way, you don’t get to worry about who might hijack your connection as they won’t be able to make use of the data you send or receive, nor will they be able to know your true identity.

To unblock Discovery Plus abroad, a few steps should be taken. First, create an Unlocator account. Second, download and install the Unlocator VPN app on your AndroidiOSMac, or Windows. Finally, connect to a US server and start watching Discovery Plus anywhere.
