Sling TV is undoubtedly the go-to channel when it comes to watching live American TV online. You get to stream channels such as ESPN, Freeform,  AMC, Comedy Central, TBS, and many more. Sling TV is also a perfect alternative for US citizens who wish to cut the cord, given that you don’t need a cable subscription to sign up. Unfortunately, access to Sling TV is restricted because it is geo-blocked outside the USA. This means you can’t stream Sling if you’re an American expat working abroad unless you make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

Unblock Sling TV Outside the US With Unlocator Smart DNS

If you try to access any video on Sling TV, the following geo-error message will pop up:

“7-600 error. We’re sorry Sling TV is only available inside the US. Thank you for your interest.”

Over time, a number of solutions have been developed to bypass such geographic restrictions, and one of them happens to be Unlocator Smart DNS. By setting up Smart DNS proxies on your streaming device, you get to unblock geo-restricted channels like Sling TV, ABC Go, ESPN, and BBC iPlayer by re-directing the URLs responsible for disclosing your location.

Doing so makes it difficult for such sites and channels to figure out if you’re within their allowed regions. This grants you access to their content. You also get to keep your real IP address. Thus, you don’t have to compromise access to your local streaming channels.

Sign up for Unlocator to unblock Sling TV outside the US and follow these setup guides based on the platform your operating.

Watch Sling TV Abroad Using Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is a safer approach to access geo-blocked content such as Sling TV. First, you have to install Unlocator on a compatible device such as Android, iOS, Mac or Windows.  Once that’s done, launch the application and connect to an American server.

As a result, you’ll obtain a US IP address and spoof your online location to the United States. Now, when Sling TV reads your IP, it’ll identify you as currently residing within its region, thus granting you full access to its streaming content.

On the other hand, Unlocator VPN adds an extra layer of protection to your online activities. Instantly after connecting to one of its servers, your traffic will be guarded by high-level military encryptions.

Moreover, Unlocator VPN cloaks your IP address. Making it next to impossible for outside parties such as the government or your ISP to monitor your browsing habits. With Unlocator VPN,  you can surf the web with complete anonymity.

Unlocator’s team is always at hand to help you out in case you run into any issues during installation. All you have to do is fill up this form. You will receive a timely response on how to fix your problem.
