The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock SRF Play
SRF Play is a TV channel that brings all kinds of content to viewers residing in Switzerland. That includes news, sports, documentaries, movies, series, as well as politics. You can watch live sports such as Olympic games, Champions League, FIFA World Cup in addition to top shows including Chicago Med, Station 19, and Grey’s Anatomy. However, the Swiss service makes it almost impossible for people located outside the borders of Switzerland to watch these programs online as it’s only restricted to its region. If you want to bypass these restrictions, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.
Unblock SRF Play Outside Switzerland Using Unlocator Smart DNS
As mentioned above, the channel cannot be streamed outside Swiss borders. If you try to watch a video on their website while living abroad, this is what you’ll get instead:
“srf aus rechtlichen gründen ist dieses video nur in der schweiz verfügbar.”
“Video aktuell nicht verfügbar.”
To watch this Swiss TV channel from abroad you will need to spoof your online location and appear to be accessing its website from Switzerland. Unlocator Smart DNS lets you do exactly that with an added value. First, Smart DNS reroutes part of your traffic that helps the channel pinpoint your actual location. When that is altered, you’ll appear as if you’re within its area of coverage. As a result, you can stream its content regardless of your current whereabouts.
Unlocator Smart DNS doesn’t change your IP in the process. That means you can still access your local channels while watching geo-restricted ones at the same time. Remember, Smart DNS is not a security tool, thus, no encryption will be present. You’ll be operating at full connection speed all the time.
Watch SRF Play Abroad With Unlocator VPN
The difference between VPN and Smart DNS is that a VPN reroutes your whole traffic resulting in an IP change. You’ll obtain an IP address based on where the server you connect to is located.
You can easily connect to a server in Switzerland with Unlocator VPN. After that, you’ll find yourself browsing the web with a Swiss IP address. It’s a different approach to bypass regional restrictions, but the outcome is the same. Once you get a Swiss IP, you’ll be able to stream SRF Play wherever you are.
Just sign up for a free Unlocator trial. Next, install the VPN application on a compatible device such as Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. Finally, connect to a Swiss server and watch SRF Play despite living abroad.
