Rai TV is run by an Italian based media house and broadcasted only to Italian residents. The most popular shows on Rai.tv include Don Matteo, Ballaro, Inspector Rex, Inspector Montalbano, Che Tempo Che Fa, and Li’spettore Coliandro. To catch up on these shows, you have to be within Italy. That’s because Rai.tv is a geo-restricted channel. This means Italian expats hoping to stream their favorite shows while in Canada, USA, Australia, Germany, France or the UK are at a disadvantage.

Streaming Rai.tv while abroad is possible, as long as you have the right solution at hand. To unblock Rai.tv regardless of where you might be, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

Watch Rai TV Outside Italy Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Users who try to access Rai TV outside Italy get this error message:

“Siamo spiancenti. RAI detiene i diritti per lo streaming del contenuto esclusivamente per connesioni dall’Italia”

It basically informs them that they cannot access any of the live or on-demand videos outside Italy. To bypass such geographic restrictions, use Unlocator Smart DNS. It hides your location from Rai.tv channel. This, in turn, grants you access to your favorite Italian shows.

A major advantage that comes with using a Smart DNS proxy like is that it keeps your Internet speed the same. You can watch live streaming without buffering issues. You also don’t need to install any additional software to unblock Rai.tv. To get you started up, get your free Unlocator trial and then configure Smart DNS on your streaming device by following these setup guides.

Unblock Rai TV Abroad With Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is a robust alternative for Smart DNS for security-minded streamers. This method, however, works by switching your IP address with another one based on the server you connected to.

For example, Rai Play demands and Italian IP address to grant you access, therefore, you need to connect to an Italian server. Once you do that, you’ll spoof your location to appear to be browsing straight from Italy. As a result, Rai TV will qualify you as an Italian resident and gives you full control over its streaming library.

All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and install Unlocator VPN on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. Eventually, with an Italian IP address, you can unblock and watch Rai TV despite being physically overseas.

In case you run into any issues during setup, you can simply contact our support team by filling this form. Also, feel free to get in touch if would like to get to more information about how our service works.
