The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does work with TVOntario Kids
TVOKids (short for TVOntario Kids) is the brand for most of the children’s programming aired by TVOntario (TVO) in Canada. This channel targets preschoolers ages 2 to 5 and broadcasts within a specific period of time. Unfortunately, it also allows access to a specific audience – Canadian residents. TVOKids is only available in Canada due to geo-restrictions. If you want to watch the channel abroad, Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS can get the job done seamlessly.
Watch TVOKids Outside Canada With Smart DNS
Just like several streaming services around the world, TVOKids applies geo-blocking. It’s a way to restrict users’ access based on their location, mainly for copyright reasons. If you try to access TVOKids abroad, the following error will appear:
“Sorry, this title is only available to viewers in Canada.”
The first solution for unblocking TVOKids is our Smart DNS. To get started, you first need to create a free Unlocator trial and then follow the setup guides for your device. By changing network settings on your router or device, you will be able to stream TVOKids regardless of where in the world you are located.
Behind the scenes, Smart DNS will reroute the data requests that give away your location to TVOKids. Instead of sending these requests straight back to TVOKids as expected, Smart DNS routes the request via our Canadian servers. As a result, it’ll grant you access to the stream.
What is particularly smart about this approach is that Smart DNS will always make sure that you appear to be located in the right location for any of the major streaming services to work. It truly is a set-and-forget smart service.
Unblock TVO Kids Using Unlocator VPN
The other solution we have for unblocking TVOKids is trendy as well. Instead of having to tweak your configurations, you simply need to install our VPN app for either Mac or Windows. Access to VPN is included in the free Unlocator trial as well.
Once you have installed the app, you need to log in and select a Canadian server. Press connect, and that is all that is needed to watch TVOKids abroad. When connected to the VPN server, your data becomes encrypted and will be routed via the server.
Hence all your traffic will appear to come from Canada, and your real IP is hidden. This is handy for unblocking TVOKids and browsing anonymously without showing your real IP.
So both Smart DNS and VPN will allow you to watch TVOKids outside of Canada. However, please keep in mind that if you are traveling and currently connected to public WiFi, then you should be using the VPN approach.
The reason is that the public WiFi that you find at hotels, airports, cafes, restaurants, conferences, and the likes is often subject to criminals harvesting data from other connected users. If you are concerned about the data that your device sends when connected to public WiFi, you should use VPN.
