How To Unblock SBS Outside Australia Using Unlocator

When you try to watch any program or movie on SBS On Demand overseas, you will get the following message: “Sorry, due to publishing rights, the content you are trying to watch is currently not available outside Australia.” This basically means that SBS is geo-restricted abroad. To bypass these regional restrictions, you have to spoof your online location. With Unlocator you can watch SBS outside Australia. Simply create a free trial with our service and configure your OS X, Ubuntu, Vista, Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows XP according to our setup guides.

After you have created your Unlocator account and configured Unlocator DNS, go to “Region Settings” in your Unlocator account. Scroll down to “Region Packages” and choose the Australian Region package.
