Why do I need to pay to stream certain TV channels

Whilst you can use our service to bypass the geo-restriction that were set in place for some channels i.e SkyGo (UK only), Hulu (US only) etc, you will still need to have an active account or subscription with the streaming provider in order to use their service. If you do not have an active account or subscription, there’s no way to stream their content over VPN or Smart DNS.

For example, BBC iPlayer is free to stream if you are in the UK (or using a service like ours to appear to be in UK) , but SkyGo still requires a paid subscription in addition to our service to stream their content.


Please note that most of the paid channels can be subscribed directly through their website, but some of them can only be unlocked if you have an existing cable subscription with them i.e. Xfinity, Directv, DISH, TataSky, BTSport etc.
