Unblock Virgin Media Player

Virgin Media Player, formerly TV3 is a free-to-air television network available in Ireland. The channel offers live and catchup video-on-demand via its Virgin Media Player. It streams popular Irish programmes such as Celebrity Big Brother, Xposé, Tipping Point, Red Rock, Conor McGregor’s Ultimate Fighter, Ireland AM, and The Seven O’Clock Show. Both the channel and its player are geo-blocked outside Ireland. Therefore, you cannot watch Virgin Media Player videos overseas in the UK, US, Australia, Canada, or France unless you make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

How To Unblock Virgin Media Player Outside Ireland Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Whenever you try to stream a video on Virgin Media outside Ireland, you’ll receive the following geo-error message:

“This video is not available to watch in your region.”

In order to successfully stream the channel outside Ireland, you have to hide your geolocation. Unlocator allows you to bypass geographic restrictions imposed on the streaming service by spoofing your location online. All you have to do is subscribe to Unlocator and configure your streaming device with Unlocator DNS by following these setup guides. That’s all it takes to unblock Virgin Media Player abroad.

Note that Unlocator Smart DNS helps you access geo-blocked channels without changing your IP address. This means you still get to access all your local website while watching geo-blocked content at the same time. Not to mention that your data won’t be encrypted in the process. Hence, you’ll be operating and streaming at full connection speed.

Access Virgin Media Player Outside Ireland With Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is another way to make your browser and Virgin Media believe you are located in Ireland. This occurs when you connect to an Irish server provided by Unlocator. The difference here is that VPN does change your IP address in order to change your current whereabouts. Upon connecting, you’ll receive an alternate IP address and cloak your original one. This IP will be based in the country where the server you connected to is located. As a result, you’ll be able to watch Virgin Media One wherever you are.

Unlocator VPN also encrypts your internet traffic, which means that you’ll be protecting your private information from any possible online threat. Furthermore, when you get a new IP, you’ll be masking your online identity. Therefore, you can surf the internet while dogging any monitoring attempts by your ISP or government.

All you have to do is create an Unlocator account, install the application on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. connect to an Irish server, and stream Virgin Media One regardless of where you might be on the map.
