Unblock myCanal

myCanal is a French live and on-demand channel that brings you all kinds of TV genres. You can stream content like Game of Thrones, Gommora, Smilf, MotoGP, and Formula 1. However, once you leave the French borders, you will find that you no longer are able to access the service’s content. That’s because of geo-restrictions that block your access based on your location. If you want to watch myCanal outside France, you should use either Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

Watch myCanal Outside France Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Living outside France will deprive you of the amazing content this channel offers its users. Once you try to approach the service while abroad, you’ll receive this geo-error message that blocks your way almost instantly:

“Pour des raisons de droits d’exploitation des programmes, le service live n’est pas disponible en dehors de la France Métropolitaine.”

Unlocator Smart DNS is one of the best ways to circumvent geo-restrictions no matter what country they’re imposed in. All you need to do is sign up for Unlocator and configure Smart DNS by following these setup guides based on the platform you’re operating. This will rechannel the part of your online traffic that helps the channel determine your location. As a result, you’ll be able to watch myCanal wherever you might be.

Unlocator Smart DNS doesn’t change your IP address to alter your location. That’s a very good feature if you’re a streamer who likes to have access to local channels at the same time. Moreover, as Smart DNS is strictly for bypassing restrictions, no security will be added once configured. This means that your data won’t be encrypted, hence, no drop in connection speed will occur.

Unblock myCanal Abroad With Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN rechannels all your internet traffic through a server located in a country of your choosing. That way, you’ll receive an IP address in that region and direct access to all geo-blocked content in the territory.

In myCanal’s case, you need to connect to a French server. This is pretty easy to do. First, create your Unlocator account. After that, install Unlocator’s application on a compatible device such as iOS, Mac or Windows. Finally, connect to a French server and browse the internet as if you’re a French resident. Now, you’ll have full access to what myCanal has to offer in terms of streaming content.
