See exclusive content from other countries without limits
As you know, there are exclusive platforms such as Hulu in which limits the content they broadcast to certain countries. Others, such as Netflix, Prime Video and others, do allow us to access the bulk of their publications from anywhere in the world but, yes, there are different series, films and documentaries that have a geographical restriction. Therefore, if you want to see some of these titles, it will be impossible to do it with the default routes that these platforms offer us.
But this has an easy fix that you’ve probably heard of. We refer to using a VPN to “skip” this restriction and be able to access any content whenever and wherever we want. You have no idea what a VPN is or, although you have heard about them, you still have doubts, calm down. In the next section we explain everything you need to know about this type of service.
What is a VPN?
These acronyms refer to Virtual Private Network which, in English, would be called as virtual private network. Without going into too many technicalities, when you connect to a VPN network, which may be located in the same country or in a different one, you change your IP address and, therefore, it becomes much more difficult to locate your location.
Therefore, if you use these services, you will be able to pretend that you are anywhere in the world from your own living room. VPNs have many other advantages, such as greater connection security, but we leave this for another article in which we delve into many more.
What really matters to us is that part of “falsifying” our location since, if we want to access platforms like Hulu or the exclusive content offered by Netflix in the US, we will only have to connect to a VPN that is in this country and, after this, log in normally on these platforms. How is this process done? Well, it is just what we are going to see now.
See all content from other countries using VPN on your Smart TV
On this occasion, we will explain how to do it from a Smart TV, but it is important that you keep in mind that you can do it identically from any other computer such as a PC, a tablet or from your own mobile phone.
The first step is, as you can imagine, having access to a VPN network. For that, we just have to go to the application store of our smart TV and, in the search engine, write “VNP”. A multitude of options will automatically appear on the screen, some will be free and others paid. We recommend that you first try one of the options at zero cost and, if you think you are going to take advantage of it, opt for a paid one that will offer you a better service.
Once the VPN app is downloaded on our TV, we will have to access it to “tell” which country we want to connect to. Each application allows us to do this in a different way but, in the end, the process is the same: we select the service we want to use and, from the list of countries they offer us, we must access the one that suits our consumption needs.
Once we select the country we will be, in the eyes of the service we want to access, in a geographical area without limitations. Therefore, we can access exclusive content of all services from anywhere in the world, skipping any type of geographic restriction.
As you can see, this is a fairly simple process to do. Even so, if you have any questions about this, do not hesitate to leave us a comment and we will try to solve it as soon as possible.
