How to Watch SKAM in Sweden
SKAM is a Norwegian hit TV show that’s taking everyone by surprise, and got them talking about how accurate the show depicts how dramatic high school life could be. Unfortunately, if you live in Sweden, it might be a little difficult for you to watch the popular TV show since NRK has geo-blocked it in Sweden. This means you’d have to look for a solution to watch SKAM outside Norway that allows you to bypass the geographic restrictions set up by NRK. You’re in luck because in this help guide, I’m going to talk about two solutions, VPN and Smart DNS proxies. Either method will allow you to watch SKAM in Sweden on your PS3, PS4, Mac, Smart TV, Android, iOS, PC, or Apple TV.
Stream SKAM on NRK within Sweden via VPN
If you hadn’t found a solution before this article, you’ve probably grown accustomed to the geo-error that pops up on your screen when you try to watch SKAM in Sweden: “NRK har ikke rettigheter til å vise dette programmet utenfor Norge.”. This happens because the site uses your IP address to determine that you’re not within Norway. VPN allows you to change your IP address to a Norwegian one by connecting you to a remote server in Norway, and making it seem as though you’re streaming from there.
- Using VPN means securing your traffic through encryption. Your private information will be safely tucked away from the reach of hackers and spammers.
- Your ISP as well won’t be able to log your Internet traffic after you switch to VPN.
- The VPN provider you choose will offer you the best VPN apps you can use on your Windows, Mac, Android, Linux, iPhone and iPad.
- VPN also unblocks all Norwegian channels such as TV2 Sumo, NRK, Viaplay, Dplay, regardless of wherever you may be.
You need to be careful about the VPN provider you choose since not all of them work well enough to unblock NRK outside Norway. I’d recommend ExpressVPN, though you can also go through the list below and see other providers who will still allow you to stream SKAM in Sweden.Last Updated Today
Watch SKAM on NRK within Sweden via Smart DNS proxy
There’s also a chance that you might not be as comfortable changing your IP address to watch SKAM in Sweden since you still want to maintain access to your local channels. If this is your case, then perhaps Smart DNS may be the best fit for you. It works to unblock geo-restricted sites by editing out the part of your URL that shows your location. Here’s some more info on what you should expect.
- As mentioned above, your IP address remains unchanged.
- It’ll probably not work out well with you if your ISP implements policies like transparent proxies or DNS hijacking.
- You can stream SKAM in Sweden on your Apple TV, Mac, iPhone, Roku, Xbox, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox and many other devices since Smart DNS is compatible with any streaming device.
- Your Internet traffic also remains unencrypted.
Not all Smart DNS proxy service support unblocking NRK though. I’ve tested quite a lot of them. Unlocator is the best you can use to get around geo-restrictions imposed on NRK shows in Sweden. You can even sign up for a free Unlocator trial.

Watch SKAM on NRK from anywhere in the World
With SKAM Season 4 on the books, you’ll need to use one of the two workaround I’ve explained above to watch the latest episodes as they stream in Norway. No matter where you are, Smart DNS (Unlocator) and VPN (ExpressVPN) will work well enough for you to stream all your favorite content from geo-blocked sites.
I’ve been able to watch SKAM at nkr.no from Sweden via Unlocator until two days ago. Do you know if NRK has managed to block Unlocator? Or do you know if there is issus with Unlocator? Is ExpressVPN better? Hope you can help me. Best Regards M
