Unblock RaiPlay

RaiPlay is run by an Italian based media house and broadcasted only to Italian residents. The most popular shows on RaiPlay 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 RaiPlay 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 RaiPlay while abroad is possible, as long as you have the right solution at hand. To unblock RaiPlay regardless of where you might be, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

Watch RaiPlay Outside Italy Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Users who try to access RaiPlay 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 RaiPlay 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 RaiPlay. To get you started up, create your Unlocator account and then configure Smart DNS on your streaming device by following these setup guides.

Unblock RaiPlay 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, RaiPlay 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 Unlocator and install Unlocator VPN on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. Eventually, with an Italian IP address, you can unblock and watch RaiPlay despite being physically overseas.
