The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock Universal Kids
Back in 2005, NBC introduced America to one of the best kids channels in the world, Universal Kids. It’s a pay-television service that focuses on content for the young ones. Previously known as Sprout, the channel is available in more than 48% of American households. “Universal Kids” requires a cable subscription to operate, and you have to be in the United States as well. If you’re abroad, you’ll be instantly blocked. If you’re living overseas and want to watch the network in your region, this guide will show you how to do so using Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.
Unblock Universal Kids Using Unlocator Smart DNS
Just like most streaming services around the world, NBC Universal Kids has to protect its licensing and broadcasting rights. This is why it applies what we call geo-blocking. It’s a defense mechanism used by media companies to restrict user access to targeted areas.
In other words, if you live or traveling outside that area of coverage, the blocking software will terminate your access almost instantly. The streaming service that applies geo-blocks examines your IP address to detect your location. For example, “Universal Kids” only operates in the US, which means that you need a US IP address.
If that’s not the case and you live abroad, an American IP is what you lack. This will result in the following geo-error message:
“You don’t have permission to access http://www.universalkids.com on this server.”
This can easily be circumvented by using Unlocator Smart DNS. The service redirects the URLs that give up your location to where the channel is available. As a result, Universal Kids will identify you as a resident within its region regardless of where you are streaming from.
Unlocator Smart DNS allows you to bypass regional restrictions, but it keeps your access to your local channels as it does not alter your IP address. Moreover, you can stream at maximum speed since no encryption is applied in the process.
Setting up Unlocator Smart DNS is pretty simple. 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. A few minutes later, you’ll be watching Universal Kids wherever you are.
Watch Universal Kids Outside the US With Unlocator VPN
Unlocator VPN is a different location spoofing approach. It works by rerouting your whole traffic through a private to a server in a country of your choosing. Once the connection is established, Unlocator VPN shields your data with military-grade encryption and changes your IP address to match that of the location where the server is based.
As a result, streaming services and websites will take on the impression of you accessing their content from within their regions, giving you full access no matter where you are. For example, if you connect to the US server, you’ll obtain an American IP address.
Consequently, you’ll be able to access Universal Kids wherever you may be. To access the channel abroad, you must first sign up for a free Unlocator trial. After that, download the Unlocator VPN application on your Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows. Finally, connect to an American server and you’ll be watching Universal Kids in no time.
