When you go abroad, it would be nice to also take your favorite TV shows with you. If you are traveling abroad, you would certainly like to watch your home countries TV stations from your hotel room in the Bahamas or anywhere in the world. While these programs are available for free online in your country, they will not be accessible anymore when you go abroad.
When you are outside of your country, your computer’s IP address identifies your location and therefore your home TVs streaming is blocked.
The solution? VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) allow users to connect to the Internet without geographical restrictions.
A VPN you are using must have servers in your country in order for you to connect and watch online TV as if you were on the couch at home. It will link your computer to a server in your country via encrypted tunnel – for example, a person can appear to be in India, while they actually are in the U.S., and vice versa, simply by choosing a different VPN server location.
A VPN service like NordVPN, would allow you to circumvent such a restriction by hiding your real IP address, and substituting it with the ‘local’ address. So when the streaming site looks at your IP, it will see the IP of the VPN server.
VPNs also offer security by encrypting all data shared between the Internet and a user’s system, so none of the data can be compromised.
Instructions to connect to any online TV channel with NordVPN:
• Get NordVPN
• Download a NordVPN app or set up NordVPN on a specific device
• Set your connection to the desired countries server
• Go to the website of your home TV station
• Log in with your user information
• Happy watching!
In the world where people move freely between countries, the content they want to stream should also be open for watching, wherever they are.
