The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock TCM
Turner Classic Movies aka TCM is an American movie oriented basic cable and satellite television channel. If you’re a fan of classic movies from the 60s, TCM is worth checking out. It also shows regular TV series, documentaries and movies like Jane Eyre, The Philadelphia Story, The Sting, The Magnificent Ambersons, and Alan Ladd. The problem with the channel is that it’s not available for viewers residing outside the United States. However, you can circumvent these geo-restrictions if you make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.
Unblock TCM Outside the US Using Unlocator Smart DNS
As mentioned above, TCM only operates within US borders. If you try to stream a video on the channel’s website while abroad, this geo-error message will pop up:
“Oh no! Turner Classic Movies isn’t available in your region.”
With Unlocator Smart DNS, you can change your current location and appear to be accessing TCM’s website from the United States. Smart DNS rechannels the part of your internet traffic that helps the channel determine your whereabouts. Once it’s altered, you’ll be able to watch TCM’s content no matter where you are.
All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and follow these setup guides according to the platform you’re streaming TCM on. When you’re done configuring Unlocator Smart DNS, you can stream TCM regardless of where you might be.
Note that Unlocator Smart DNS doesn’t change your IP in the process. This means that you’ll still be able to tap into your local channels while attempting to bypass regional restrictions at the same time.
Watch TCM Abroad With Unlocator VPN
If your public IP address doesn’t show that you’re in the States, you’re not getting access to the service. However, Unlocator VPN reroutes your internet traffic through one of its servers in a country of your choosing. This gives you a new IP address valid in the region the server is based in.
For example, TCM requires a US IP address. All you need to do is connect to an American server and you’ll be viewed as a current US resident accessing the internet. As a result, you can watch TCM’s library wherever you are.
To do so, you must first sign up for a free Unlocator trial. After that, install the Unlocator VPN application on your device. You’ll find clients on Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. Finally, connect to a US server and watch TCM despite being outside the United States.
Unlocator changes your online location and helps you access geo-restricted content. But in cases like TCM, you still need a valid cable subscription.
