Unblock NOW TV

NOW TV is one of the biggest online live and on-demand TV channels in the UK. It is the best solution for cord-cutters who don’t want to be bound by a long-term Sky subscription. Whether it’s sports or a TV show, you get to see content such as Game of Thrones, Westworld, Atlanta, Big Little Lies, La Liga, and so many more. However, even with a valid subscription, the streaming service will block your access as soon as you step one foot outside the UK. To circumvent this geo-location issue, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

Unblock Now TV Outside the UK With Unlocator Smart DNS

If you try to watch Now TV’s content outside the United Kingdom, this geo-error message will appear:

“Error: Content geo-blocked (1301).”

Unlocator Smart DNS is the fastest way to stream geo-restricted content abroad. It does that by redirecting the relevant parts of your geo-related traffic so that you may appear as if you’re accessing Now TV’s website from the UK. This doesn’t tamper with your IP address. Therefore, you can still tap into your local streaming services as well as Now TV at the same time.

Smart DNS doesn’t encrypt your traffic, which means that there’s no extra layer of protection added to your device. However, without encryption, your speed remains untouched. This is very good if you’re willing to stream your favorite shows on Now TV at full speed.

To configure Unlocator Smart DNS, you need to create an Unlocator account. Then, follow these setup guides according to the platform you’re streaming on. In the end, you’ll be watching Now TV outside the UK in no time.

Feel free to ask for Unlocator’s support team’s help if you run into any inconvenience. They’re available 24/7 waiting to solve your problems on the spot.

Watch Now TV Abroad Using Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is another simple solution to get Now TV in your country. A Virtual Private Network allows you to channel all your traffic through a remote server in a specific country. You get to choose which region based on the server you connect to. By selecting one, you’ll make it appear as if your browsing from that territory. Hence, you’ll have access to all restricted content there.

As for Now TV, you need to connect to a UK server for the channel to operate smoothly. Once you do that, you’ll receive a UK IP address and hide your original one. Now, the channel will see a UK IP address and lift the geo-ban that was once present. As a result, you can watch Now TV regardless of where you’re location is based.

On the other hand, Unlocator VPN comes with high-level encryptions that protect your device while you’re browsing the web. When you connect to any server, you’ll be guarded against cyber attacks and you’ll be able to surf the internet anonymously.

To make this work, you must go through the following. First, sign up for Unlocator. After that, install the Unlocator VPN application on your Mac or Windows, connect to a UK, server and watch Now TV wherever you are.
