Unblock FXNOW Outside the US Using Unlocator Smart DNS

If you visit the FXNOW website abroad, you might get an error message that states:

“FXNOW is currently unavailable due to geographic restrictions.”

To circumvent this issue, you have to trick FXNOW into believing that you are located in the USA. Two steps should be followed for that to be done. First, create your Unlocator account. Second, setup Unlocator DNS on your Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Atvio, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, iPod, macOS, Roku, Roku OS, Ubuntu, Vista, Windows 10, Windows 11, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows XP, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox S, Xbox X by following the instructions in these setup guides. Configuring Unlocator DNS does not require installing any software. All you have to do is change your DNS server’s addresses and replace them with Unlocator DNS. Once you complete both steps, you will be able to watch FXNOW outside the US with ease.

Access FXNOW Abroad With Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is the perfect alternative for users who prefer their security and privacy while online. What differs here is that VPN works by changing your IP address to match what the channel requires. For instance, FXNOW is based in the US. Therefore, you need to install Unlocator on Android, iOS, Mac or Windows, connect to an American server, and obtain a US IP address. Now, once FXNOW reads your IP, it’ll take on the impression of you residing within its area of coverage. As a result, you’ll have full access to FXNOW’s streamable library wherever you’re located.

VPN is first and foremost a privacy tool.  It encrypts your internet connection shielding your traffic from any cyber attack that might occur. On the other hand, Unlocator VPN also hides your IP address. With that, you’ll be able to surf the internet without having to worry about who might be monitoring your online activities. When connected, you will be browsing anonymously and watching your favorite shows on FXNOW abroad.

Kindly note that Unlocator only helps you bypass regional restrictions imposed on geo-restricted channels. You still need a valid US cable subscription in order to sign into FXNOW and watch its content.
