Get Started Now

France 3 is part of the state-owned France Télévisions group. It’s actually the second largest channel in France and the main focus of the channel is to provide news and cultural content from the various French regions.

Like all the sister channel you can only watch France 3 if you are located in France. The website will detect your location via your IP address so if you try to stream from outside France you will receive an error message. However, by using Unlocator Smart DNS you can get around this problem.

All that is needed is an Unlocator subscription, followed by a quick setup of your device. Simply follow the setup guides and restart your device.

Once you have set up your device to use Unlocator Smart DNS then you will magically appear to be located in France – as far as France 3 is concerned anyway. Only the traffic going to France 3 will be redirected and everything else is left untouched. This means that all other streaming services will continue to work without having to change settings.

Using VPN to Unblock France 3

If you wish you can also use Unlocator VPN to unblock France 3. In that case you need to install one of our VPN apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows and then connect to a French server. Unlike the Smart DNS solution all your traffic will leave encrypted trough the French VPN server when using VPN. This will allow you to unblock any French website or streaming service.

Additionally VPN is the right choice if you are connected to a network in a cafe, hotel or airport. This is because that you might encounter issues using Unlocator Smart DNS on these types of network due to the way they are managed. Additionally it’s always a good idea to use VPN when connected to public WiFi in order to protect your privacy.

However, if you are located at home then Smart DNS will do just fine. In the table below you can see the devices we support via Unlocator Smart DNS and France 3.
