The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock Peacock TV
The Comcast owned NBCUniversal has finally launched its new streaming service, Peacock, making it a worthy competitor in the already-packed streaming industry. With a single account, users can watch classic and recent films, series, and live television on three simultaneous devices. However, as grand as it is, the service is only available in the US. In other words, only residents in the United States can access the channel. There is a way to solve that and watch Peacock abroad. You only need to make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS, and Peacock is all yours outside the US.
Watch NBC’s Peacock Outside the US Using Unlocator Smart DNS
Just like most streaming services around the world, NBC’s Peacock applies geo-blocking, which restricts users’ access based on their geographical location. As we mentioned, Peacock is only available in the US, and it examines the users’ IP addresses to pinpoint their physical whereabouts.
In other words, the channel requires an American IP address to operate. If a user resides outside the US, an American IP address is exactly what he/she lacks. So, once they try to access the channel from their region, the following IP address appears:
“This service is unavailable in your region.”
Unlocator Smart DNS is the perfect way to bypass such restrictions and get Peacock to operate overseas. It reroutes the parts of your internet traffic that showcase your current location. This tricks the channel into thinking that you reside within its area of coverage, granting you full access to its content no matter where you reside.
Unlocator Smart DNS has a lot of benefits, including the fact that it’s mostly configurable on every single operating system out there. Moreover, the technology does not encrypt your data, nor does it change your IP address. This allows you to stream your content with minimal speed loss and navigate between both local and unblocked channels simultaneously.
Setting up Unlocator Smart DNS is quite an easy task. All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial. After that, follow these setup guides based on the device you’re operating. Finally, launch the channel and stream its content anywhere.
Access Peacock Abroad With Unlocator VPN
Using a VPN is an alternate way to access Peacock outside the US. Unlike Smart DNS, Unlocator VPN reroutes your entire traffic through a server of your choosing. Once you establish a connection, Unlocator VPN encrypts your data (extra security) and cloaks your IP address (extra privacy), replacing it with one based on the “connected” server’s location.
However, NBC Peacock doesn’t just use geo-blocking, it also has adopted VPN banning, resulting in the instant block of several top VPNs in the industry. If a VPN does not optimize its servers to par with such a ban, the following error appears:
“Sorry, accessing Peacock through a VPN is restricted. (OVP_00013).”
Unlocator VPN constantly adapts to such issues and manages to bypass them using either one of its services. With Unlocator VPN, you can simply connect to one of the US server locations within the app and obtain an American IP address in seconds.
Once the connection is established, you can stream NBC Peacock no matter where you live around the world. The steps are simple. All you have to do is create a subscribe to Unlocator’s 7-day free trial, download the Unlocator VPN application on your Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows, connect to an American server, and finally, stream NBC Peacock anywhere.
