Unblock NPO

NPO is a public broadcasting station in the Netherlands, offering the biggest and most popular Dutch programs. You can find shows like: “Buitenhof”, “Koefnoen”, and “NOS Journal”. The downside is that NPO has blocked all access to its content, making it exclusively available for users in the Netherlands. However, if you live outside the Netherlands and wish to stream NPO, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

Unblock NPO Outside the Netherlands Using Unlocator Smart DNS

You may find a lot of videos on NPO that actually work anywhere. However, if you try to access live streaming, this geo-error message will pop up:

“Vanwege uitzendrechten is het niet mogelijk om deze uitzending buiten Nederland te bekijken.”

This basically means that due to broadcasting rights, streaming is not available outside the Netherlands. Unlocato’s job is to make NPO think that you are in the Netherlands, hereby granting you access to their content.  Smart DNS reroutes part of your internet traffic that is responsible for showcasing your actual location. Unlocator Smart DNS does not encrypt your data when configured. This means that you’ll be able to stream geo-restricted content without having to lose any of your connection speed in the process.

All you need to do is: subscribe to Unlocator, then follow setup guides based on your device or router. Now you’re all set to watch NPO anytime, anywhere.

Unlocator VPN gives you the same results as Smart DNS but with a different approach. With a VPN, you can access surf the web without facing any restrictions what so ever.

Just create your Unlocator account, install the Unlocator application on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows, connect to a Dutch server, and enjoy NPO anywhere in the world.
