Watch German Tv Online In The Us And The Uk With A German Ip Address

Hulu's making a killing with American audiences, and has quickly become the second most watched video site in The USA, second to YouTube. BBC iPlayer, ITV, Demand 5, and Channel 4 also provide free or paid online television streaming from The UK - TV shows, Reality TV, and Sports all available online. What about German TV? There are a variety of sites available for German netizens - Petn(.)tv, DasErste, SKB, Street Clip, TRP1, Zattoo Germany, Arte(.)tv, and KI(.)KE is just part of the long list of German TV and Radio streaming sites that are available on the internet, for Germans ONLY! Just like Hulu and BBC iPlayer, these sites are restricted for access from German IP addresses. The good news is that just like BBC iPlayer and Hulu, you can get a German IP address in The US, The UK, and other locations around the world.

Virtual private networks are mainly used as a privacy protection tool online. The IP address of your phone or computer can actually give away more information that just your physical location. The make and model of your phone, what operating system you're running, and even provide a gateway to spying on your online activity. There is a whole market for "anonymous surfing" tools online, but that's another story. What concerns us is that to get "anonymous", or hidden online, you need to hide your real IP address, and replace it with another. This is just what VPNs do.

Most of the time, one VPN service will have VPN servers located in different countries around the world, and slowly add more. One VPN service may provide as few as two or as many as 40+ options. When you connect to a VPN server, it assigns you an IP address from its location. If you sign into a US VPN server, you get a US IP. If you sign in to a VPN server in Germany, then you are going to get a German IP address. And that's pretty much the end of the story.

With the German IP address on your phone or computer, you'll be able to surf German sites and stream German TV online in The US and The UK, just like if you were in Germany. You'll have the added bonus of the online security and anonymity that VPNs provide as well. Some VPN services even offer package deals, with VPN servers in several locations, so you can hop around and try out TV streaming sites from a variety of countries. OF course, US and UK IP addresses are popular for Hulu and BBC iPlayer, but there is a TV streaming site for just about every country in the world.

If you speak a couple languages, this is a great way to practice your listening skills. IF you travel a lot, having a VPN on your iPhone or Android can keep you occupied at airports and bus and train stations where long waits can be killer. For those that travel for business and don't' really have an interest in "getting out" with the locals, keeping connected with local German TV, music, and movie streaming sites can make your trip more comfortable.
