France 5 is part of the state-owned France Télévisions group. The channel’s motto is la chaîne de la connaissance et du savoir (the knowledge network). Basically the channel is dedicated to educational documentaries and factual programs. One thing the channel does have in common with its sister channels is the fact that it’s only available in France. By using Unlocator Smart DNS you can get around that.

In the spirit of France 5 here is a little educational content: In order to view France 5 outside France you need to sign up for Unlocator, then follow the setup guides for your device. That is really all there is to it.

When using Unlocator Smart DNS only a small portion related to checking your location is redirected trough our servers. They will magically make you appear as located in France when watching France 5. However, other channels will not be affected. This is the beauty of Unlocator Smart DNS – you can appear in multiple locations at once.

Another Way to Unblock France 5 – Unlocator VPN

In some cases Smart DNS is not the right tool for the job. Instead you will get a better experience using Unlocator VPN. This is particular true if you are connected to a public network in a cafe, hotel, airport or similar. The problem with these types of networks is that they are unsecure and sometimes they will also prevent Smart DNS from working.

So in these cases you should use Unlocator VPN instead. Install one of our apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows and connect to a French server. As a result your data traffic will become encrypted to protect your privacy. On top of that your network traffic will now come from the french VPN server and you will be able to unblock France 5. So it’s basically unblocking and security in one.

If you prefer to use just Smart DNS please check the table below to see the devices we support with our Smart DNS to unblock France 5.
