VPN and Smart DNS each offer their own benefits. VPN is great for privacy, security and unblocking content. Smart DNS on the other hand is made for streaming and allows you to unblock content from multiple countries at once. Unlocator Hybrid is the best of both worlds rolled into one.
Connect to VPN and get Access to Smart DNS
When you connect to a server in the Unlocator network you get access to the Smart DNS service as well. This means that you can connect to a US VPN server but still unblock streaming services from the UK at the same time. So with Unlocator Hybrid you get the ease of use and privacy that comes with VPN and the global streaming you have come to enjoy from Unlocator Smart DNS.
We have made global settings that work for 99% of user straight out of the box.
When using Smart DNS you normally have the ability to tweak certain settings. For an instance some streaming services use the same platform to deliver content. One such example is ESPN+ and MLB. When using Smart DNS you can choose which of the services you want to unblock. This option is not available with Hybrid mode. Instead you should connect to a US server to unblock ESPN+ and connect to a non US server to bypass MLB blackouts.
However, 99% of all the streaming services just work straight out of the box when using Hybrid mode. If you have any questions feel free to contact our support team and they will help you out.
