The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock Ruutu
Ruutu is a Finnish online streaming service that offers movies, series, reality shows, and the best live sports in Finland. You can find the likes of The Voice Finland, Holmes NYC, NBA, This is Us, and way more provided you live in Finland. Travelers and Finnish expats, however, have no access to the channel due to geo-restrictions. To bypass geo-blocks, viewers outside of the country must make use of Unlocator.
Watch Ruutu Outside Finland Using Unlocator Smart DNS
This is what you get when you try to stream a video on Ruutu abroad:
“Johtuen sisältöoikeuksista tämä video ei ole katsottavissa maassa jossa olet nyt.”
This means that the video you’re trying to view is not accessible in the region you’re located in at the moment. If you want to circumvent this issue, then you have to use Unlocator Smart DNS.
Unlocator Smart DNS can help mask your real location and appear elsewhere. It does that by redirecting the part in the website’s URL that helps it determine your current whereabouts. Once you do that, you will give the channel the impression that you’re within its area of coverage. As a result, you will have full access to Ruutu’s streaming library despite being outside of Finland.
When you operate with Unlocator, neither your IP address nor your connection speed will be affected. Thus, you can still work with your local channels as well as Ruutu without losing access to any of them.
Unblock Ruutu Abroad With Unlocator VPN
Unlocator VPN gets you the same results as Smart DNS with an added security. If you want to access Ruutu outside Finland, you need to connect to a server in that region. Once you do that, you’ll obtain a Finnish IP address, thus you’ll appear to be browsing straight from that country. Now, when you try to view a video on Ruutu, you’ll notice that no geo-error message exists anymore. Eventually, you’ll have full access to the channel despite being physically overseas.
Setting up Unlocator VPN is quite easy. All you need is to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and install the application on a compatible device such as Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. When that is done, you’ll be able to watch Ruutu regardless of your current location.
