Watch Australian TV In Germany

One of the most difficult aspects of living abroad or travelling is how far away you are from everything that is familiar to you. Your distance from friends and family is not something that can be easily resolved, however, it is possible to make it so you can the television from your part of the world online through the internet. For people from Australia living in Germany, it is possible to watch Australian TV in Germany, even the streaming sites such as ABC iView and SBS, both of which have regional restrictions in place.

Regional restrictions can be a pain. They mean that if you are in one part of the world and you want to use certain websites from another country you are often denied access. This occurs even if you have paid for a subscription to the website. Copyright restrictions are the reason behind this. A large amount of content is not meant to be watched by international viewers and so regional restrictions are put in place so that watching it is not possible.

If you attempt to watch SBS or ABC iView in Germany, you will get a message that informs you the content you are interested in cannot be played in your region. This means that you either need to go back to Australia to watch content, or find a way to convince the website that you are in Australia. In almost all cases, the second of these options is the only one that is practical, but achieving it can be confusing if you do not know where to begin.

You need to make use of a VPN in order to watch Australian TV from anywhere outside of the country. The VPN gives you a method of altering how your IP address is perceived by websites that you visit, and because of this, the website’s perception of your physical location also changes. It is no problem to connect to a VPN server in Australia and then sign onto an Australian streaming TV service, and watch Australian TV in Germany.

A VPN service is good for other things as well as accessing sites that have regional restrictions. Another aspect of their usefulness is in security. Their methods of altering the ways that you browse the internet (your IP) significantly increases your security, making it much more difficult for anyone to find out your information or to obtain your private data while you are online.
