How to Unblock UKTV Play Outside the UK With Unlocator Smart DNS
If you’re a current UK resident, then access to UKTV Play is easy. You can tune into your favorite shows at any convenient time. But if you live overseas, then that will instantly result in a geo-error message that states:
“The video you are trying to watch cannot be viewed from your current country or location.”
Unlocator Smart DNS gives you access to the streaming service and a plethora of other geographically restricted channels regardless of your current location. It simply does that by re-directing the URLs responsible for exposing your whereabouts. Once configured, you’ll easily be able to stream UKTV Play anywhere in the world.
You can easily set up Unlocator. All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and follow these setup guides based on the platform you’re operating. Note that there’s no need for any additional software to install Unlocator on your device.
On iOS and Android, users must change the device’s Region and Language to the UK. Without that, a banner will pop up as the app starts indicating “OUTSIDE THE UK?“. However, the videos will play in both situations.
Also, after you create your account and set up Unlocator, go to your region settings. Scroll down to “Region Packages” and choose the UK Region Package.
