Sportsnet is one of the top Canadian sports channels in the region. You can find the best sports events including MLB, NHL, NFL, Canadian Hockey, UEFA Champions League, UFC, Tennis (ATP and WTA), Olympics, Jr. Hockey and more on the streaming service. However, the channel is not available for viewers residing outside the Canadian borders. Only residents in Canada can benefit from the channel’s huge library of content. Nevertheless, there’s a workaround to that issue. In order to watch Sportsnet abroad, you must make use of Unlocator.

Watch Sportsnet Outside Canada Using Unlocator

Accessing the channel while abroad will give you this geo-error message:

“Sportsnet Now is not available in your region.”

Unlocator Smart DNS can spoof your online location and trick the channel into thinking that you’re within its region. It does that by altering the URLs that help identify your location. When you’re done setting it up, you’ll be able to watch Sportsnet wherever you might be.

All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and configure Unlocator using the setup guides provided below based on the platform you’re operating. Don’t forget, Unlocator’s Smart DNS service doesn’t change your IP for the process to work, neither does it encrypt your traffic. Therefore, you’ll be able to access your local channels at the same time and at the same speed.

Watch Sportsnet Anywhere With Unlocator

Configuring Unlocator on your devices is pretty easy. You don’t need a credit card to begin and most certainly not any additional software to operate. If you need any help, Unlocator’s support time is on the clock waiting to answer your questions.

Although Unlocator Smart DNS can bypass regional restrictions and grant you access to any channel within its supported list, you’ll still need a cable subscription for this one. Sportsnet offers you the best sports in the industry. So, even with Unlocator’s help, you’ll still need a subscription to access the streamable content Sportsnet has to offer to viewers.
