The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does work with TVOntario
TVOntario (usually abbreviated as TVO) is a publicly funded English-language educational television network in the Canadian province of Ontario. The channel allows users to watch any of its content, completely free of charge. However, TVO is only available to Canadian residents due to geo-restrictions. If you want to watch TVOntario outside overseas, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.
Unblock TVOntario Outside Canada Using Unlocator Smart DNS
If you live outside Canadian borders, the channel will block your access almost instantly. All you’ll be getting is the following geo-error message:
“This video is restricted from playing in your current geographic region!”
That said, using Unlocator Smart DNS gives you the ability to change your virtual location so that you can appear in a different region. This happens by changing the part in your URL that helps determine your current location.
Once you set up Smart DNS, you’ll seem as if you’re accessing TVOntario’s website from within the Canadian borders. As a result, you’ll be able to stream the channel’s content despite being physically abroad.
Unlocator Smart DNS only reroutes part of your traffic while bypassing geo-restrictions. Therefore, your IP address remains fixed, and you can access your local channels even if your DNS settings are changed.
Also, Unlocator Smart DNS doesn’t encrypt your data. So, in other words, you won’t be getting an extra layer of protection. Instead, you’ll be operating at full connection speed.
Unblock TVO Outside Canada With Unlocator VPN
A VPN’s main purpose is to protect you from possible online threats. This occurs by encrypting all your traffic and rerouting it through one of its remote servers. Unlocator VPN does that, but it also helps bypass regional restrictions.
While Smart DNS doesn’t change your IP address, a VPN does. For example, when you connect to a server in Canada, you’ll receive a Canadian IP address instead of your now-cloaked one. This helps unblock Canadian-based content even if you reside abroad.
The same goes for every country based on the server you decide to connect to. So, what’s required of you is to create an Unlocator account, install their VPN application on a compatible device such as Mac or Windows, connect to a Canadian server. Finally, you can watch TVO as if you’re a Canadian resident.
