How to Stream Snooker Masters 2018 Live Online with VPN
If you live outside UK, you can either use VPN or Smart DNS proxies to unblock BBC iPlayer abroad. With VPN, you can get a UK IP address even if you live in USA, Australia, UAE, China, or anywhere else overseas. This will trick BBC into thinking you currently reside in UK. Thus, you can watch Snooker Masters 2018 live online. Here’s how to set it all up.
- First, you need to sign up with a VPN provider.
- Now that you have a VPN account, it’s time to install the VPN app on your PC, Mac, Android, iPhone, iPad.
- Launch the application and then connect to a UK VPN server.
- That is all you have to do to unblock UK channels including BBC, Now TV, Sky, ITV, or Channel 4 abroad.
Keep in mind that not all VPNs work with BBC iPlayer. If you want to watch the 2018 Masters tournament live online, sign up with the tried and tested ExpressVPN. I’ve also included other VPN services you can use to bypass regional restrictions below.
Watch 2018 Dafabet Masters Live Online with Smart DNS Proxies
Smart DNS Proxy also unblocks geo-restricted sites like BBC iPlayer for snooker fans outside the UK. Although this method does work in a different manner in order to bypaass geographic restrictions. Here’s what you should know.
- Smart DNS is compatible with any streaming device. You can watch BBC iPlayer on iPhone, Mac, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, PS3/PS4, Amazon Fire TV and Xbox
- A Smart DNS does not change your IP address
- A Smart DNS does not encrypt your Internet traffic
- If your ISP uses transparent proxies or DNS hijacking, then Smart DNS will probably not work well for you.
As is the case with VPN, not all Smart DNS proxy services support unblocking BBC iPlayer abroad. If you want to use Smart DNS to watch 2018 Masters snooker live online, sign up with Unlocator. Unlocator does work with BBC and have a 7-day free trial as well.
