With an abundance of Latin American content Tr3s is a must have for anyone interested in modern Latin American music and culture. Access to the video content is restricted from outside the US but you can easily work around this restriction.
The problem is that licensing agreements restricts Tr3s from making their shows available for streaming worldwide. Once the website registers your location is outside the US you will see this message “Sorry, this video is unavailable from your location” when trying to watch a video. What has happened is that Tr3s has been able to detect your location via your computers IP-address. I’m assuming that you know what an IP-address is, but for those of you who don’t know I can tell you that it is an unique number that your computer inherits from your ISP (Internet Service Provider) when going online. It is needed in order for your computer to be able to communicate at all.
The problem is that an IP-address is a tell tell sign of your location and most websites with country restrictions use the IP-address of the visitors to determine location. So in order to around the restrictions you need to connect via an American IP-address.
How to Fake Your Location and Access Tr3s From Abroad
It is actually a fairly easy process to get access to an American IP-address. By connecting to what is known as a Virtual Private Network or VPN you will be able to inherit an IP-address from a server located in the US instead of your ISP. That way any website you connect to will think that you are American. Pretty smart if you ask me.
There are several VPN providers on the market, but I personally prefer using Unlocator
as their speed and prices are among the best on the market. Once you have signed up for the service you simply download and install the application and select a server in the US where you want to hide. After you have connected you reload the Tr3s website and you will now be able to watch any video you like.
As mentioned before this trick can be used for any website around the world that uses country restrictions. With Unlocator
you get access to servers in 43 different countries around the world so you can unblock virtually any website you like.
Anyhow that is all there is to if you live outside the US and want to watch the video content from Tr3s. Happy viewing.
