The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does work with HGTV
HGTV is an American cable channel that brings you topics such as design, home decor, lifestyle, and landscaping. You can stream the likes of Property Brothers, My Lottery Dream Home, Island Life, Good Bones, and Restored by the Fords. However, even if you have a valid cable subscription, the channel is not available for viewers residing outside the United States. If you want to watch HGTV overseas, you’ll have to make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.
How to Watch HGTV Outside the US Using Unlocator Smart DNS
If you try to stream an episode of any show on their website while abroad, this error message will block your access on the spot:
“This site is not available in your country.”
Unlocator Smart DNS is the first solution to bypass regional restrictions. It helps you change your current whereabouts and trick the channel into thinking that you reside in its region. This is done by rerouting the part in your traffic that’s responsible for showcasing your physical location. After that, you’ll be able to tap into HGTV’s streaming content without hitch.
Smart DNS doesn’t alter your IP address, which means that you can still view your local channels while unblocking restricted ones abroad. On the other hand, Unlocator DNS doesn’t encrypt your online traffic. As a result, you’ll be able to watch international channels without witnessing any drop in your connection speed.
This is what you need to do. First, subscribe to Unlocator. Next, follow these setup guides according to the device you’re using. Finally, watch HGTV wherever you might be on the map.
Unblock HGTV Abroad With Unlocator VPN
HGTV is full of shows that will give you inspiration for your next home project. Therefore, you shouldn’t miss any of its shows just because geo-restrictions have been imposed on its content. If Smart DNS doesn’t suit your needs, you can always choose Unlocator VPN to work around geo-blocks.
Now, this is a different approach to the matter. Unlocator VPN does change your IP address to spoof your location. By connecting to one of its servers in the US, you’ll receive an American IP address. When HGTV examines your IP address, it’ll take on the impression that you’re accessing its website from the United States. Thus, it’ll give you full access to its content despite your being physically abroad.
All you have to do is create an Unlocator account. Then, install the application on a compatible device such as Mac or Windows, connect to an American server, and watch HGTV anywhere in the world.
