Guide: How to Unblock Slacker Radio Outside the US

Honestly it’s a bit of a stretch to call this a guide as there are not many steps. The first and most important on is creating an Unlocator account. Then go ahead and follow our setup guides and restart your device once you have completed the few steps.

From then on you can stream Slacker Radio from anywhere in the world without getting blocked. Behind the scenes Unlocator Smart DNS will make sure that you appear to be located in the US every time Slacker Radio tries to determine your location.

We do this by sending the traffic related to these location checks via our servers in the US. As a result Slacker will think this is where you are located. What is great about this method is that all your other streaming services will still see your correct location. So using Unlocator Smart DNS will not break your local services and websites.

Using VPN to Unblock Slacker Radio

While Smart DNS is a great way to unblock Slacker Radio we also find that many of our user like to use our VPN apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows to unblock Slacker.

So once you have signed up and installed one of the apps you can go ahead and select a US server. Press connect and in a matter of seconds you will appear in the US. All your data traffic is encrypted and will leave through the server you have chosen. As a result your real IP will be hidden and any website, app or service you use will think you are from the US. So this method can be used to unblock any US service or in fact any service around the world as long as you can find the correct country in our app.

The fact that your data traffic becomes encrypted also helps protect your privacy around the Internet. If you are connected to public WiFi you want to make sure that you use VPN in order to avoid bad guys from harvesting your private information.
