ITV is a free UK TV station with content such as Coronation Street and Downton Abbey available for streaming. ITV is available online via ITV Hub. You can watch live and on-demand British TV shows on ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, CITV, and ITVBe. ITV Hub is geo-restricted outside UK. This means you cannot watch your favorite UK shows while abroad on holidays in Spain, USA, France, Australia, Canada or anywhere outside the UK for that matter.
How To Unblock ITV Outside UK using Unlocator Smart DNS
“We’re sorry. ITV Hub is only available to viewers in the UK.” That is the geo-location error you get when you try to watch any video on ITV abroad. In order to get around this issue you need to first create a free Unlocator trial and then follow the setup guides for your device. Once you have done so you can reload ITV and all of a sudden you will now be able to stream ITV regardless of your location.
Behind the scenes the Unlocator Smart DNS will make sure that every time ITV checks your location it will see the IP address of one of our UK servers instead. An IP address is a unique number that you get from your Internet provider when you go online. It’s this number ITV will look at to determine your location. With our Smart DNS we change this number only for the checks that ITV makes when trying to determine your location. All other websites and services will see your real IP and continue to work as normal. Basically our Smart DNS changes your location on a pr. site basis so all the streaming sites will work world wide but all other websites remain unaffected.
Use Unlocator VPN to Watch ITV Outside the UK
If you are not keen on changing your network settings you can also use our VPN app instead. When using VPN your data connection becomes encrypted and all your data will leave trough the VPN server of your choice. If you select a UK VPN server on our app then all your traffic will appear to come from the UK. As a result you can watch ITV abroad as well as any other UK streaming service.
Once installed select a UK server and press connect. That is all there is to it and from that moment you will appear to be in the UK.
The fact that VPN encrypts your data connection is very handy if you are connected to public WiFi like you find at hotels, airports, cafes, restaurants, conferences, schools and the likes. The reason is that criminals will often use these types of networks to steal private data from you when connected to free WiFi. However, once you are using Unlocator VPN then your data connection is encrypted and you can now surf in safety.
When you create a free Unlocator trial you get access to both the Smart DNS and VPN. So you can give both a try and see which method you prefer.
