Viaplay is a VoD and live TV streaming service available in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Viaplay is geoblocked outside these Nordic countries. If you’re an expat living in US, UK, Holland, Belgium, Germany, or France, and wish to unblock Viaplay, use Smart DNS or VPN. I’ve filled this tutorial with info and instructions about how to use either solution.
How to unblock and watch Viaplay using Smart DNS Proxies or VPN
How to unblock and watch Viaplay – Smart DNS Solution
If you try to sign up for a Viaplay account outside Norway, Finland, Sweden, or Denmark, you’ll get the following message “This content is not available in your region.” Smart DNS allows you to bypass such regional restriction. It simply hides your true location from geo-restricted channels. Take a look at Smart DNS benefits.
Smart DNS enables you to watch all four Viaplay regions simultaneously. Stream the Finnish, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian Viaplay versions using a single Smart DNS setup.
Smart DNS only alters the route of a part of your connection. Consequently, your Internet speed is left unchanged.
Local IP address is not changed. No restrictions on your local websites.
Android, PC, Chromecast, Mac, iPhone, and Xbox, and Playstation are compatible with Viaplay.
VPN is another way to unblock Viaplay. VPN was primarily used to encrypt data and protect online privacy. Now more and more people are using VPN to access geoblocked channels. VPN allows you to obtain an IP address from a Sweden, Denmark, Norway, or Finland. Once your device has VPN installed, it’ll appear to be connected to the Internet in a country of your choice.
VPN’s data encryption protects your data. It also prevents agencies, snoops, and ISPs from spying on you.
The fact VPN sends all your traffic to a foreign server means that you’ll experience a speed reduction of around 10%.
VPN apps for iPhone, Android, Mac, iPad, and PC makes installing VPN on these devices a matter of minutes.
To unblock Viaplay on Xbox, Playstation, Smart TV, Chromecast, you have to set up VPN on a router that is VPN enabled.
DNS Hijacking and Transparent Proxies cannot stop VPN from bypassing geographic restrictions.
The VPN provider I use, ExpressVPN, has servers in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. That’s all you need to watch Viaplay anywhere using VPN.
