With tons of content new and old TV Land is a buffet full of entertainment. The only problem is that you if are outside the US you can’t get access to the video content. In this guide you will learn how to trick the TV Land website and work around the restrictions.
Connect to the TV Land website from outside the US and start a video and you will read the following message:” Sorry, this video is unavailable from your location”. Kind of a bummer wont you agree? However, this is actually very easy to fix. All you need to do is fake your location and have the TV Land website think your located in the US.
Almost all websites (including TV Land) that uses geographical restrictions will determine the users location via his or her IP-address. This address is a unique number that your computer is given when going online. Since the origin of the number corresponds to your Internet Provider at the time, it is very easy to determine where in the world you are located.
In order to get an American IP-address you need to connect to a Virtual Private Network. This is also known as VPN and basically it will allow you to hide behind an American server that will act as a middleman between you and the TV Land website. That way you can inherit an American IP and then you can watch all the TV Land videos you like.
There are several VPN providers available on the market. I have tried a good handful and personally I prefer using Unlocator as they have given me the best speeds (speed is vital for video).
Once you have signed up for an account you then install their application and select a server in the US where you want to connect. This is done via a simple dropdown menu. You can always manually setup a VPN connection – simply follow the instructions on the account page of Unlocator.
The great thing is that a VPN connection will not only unblock TV Land but also any other US only website that uses country restrictions. In other words VPN is a very handy tool.
