This is no free ride and it’s not an extravagant one either, basically you’ll have to buy a VPN service (Virtual Private Network), that will supply you with encrypted codes. Gaining access to blocked Aussie TV channels overseas by giving a false IP address to the sites you want to connect to.

EXAMPLE: Say you’re visiting for christmas, relatives abroad for a few weeks, during those weeks you’ll be able to watch your favourite news channel, sports channel or series channel from Australia. Because this tool, VPN, will inform the site that your computer, laptop or mobile is in Sydney, Australia and not at your cousin’s home in Bali, Thailand.

Start the process

There are a number of VPN services, that can suit your specific needs, witopia is an online based site that offers theses services from $10/month. Perfect for a long holiday, although you can also contract the service for a whole year from $50/year, which can come in handy if you want to watch some interesting NBA playoff matches or be the first to watch the latest season of your favourite series from US or UK at your home.

These VPNs also work the other way round, as stated above, so you can purchase a personal VPN which offers PPTP access for your PC, TV and Mobile and at the commodity of your sofa, fool the US services into believe your PC or Laptop is in the land of the free and the home of the brave...and watch how Lebron, Durant or Rose battle it out for the World Championship!!

Other options, that have been in the market for some time could be, Boxee Box or the Slingbox, but these are more expensive than witopia for example.

Watch TV through Witopia

1. Sign-up to Witopia - access the site and choose a plan to register.

Personal VPN - this basic plan is a as good as the Pro one, the inconvenience with the basic plan comes if you’re going to be using the tool in many different locations or you are in countries where the internet access is very limited, censored or blocked. This plan will let you down if you’re going to use it as described above.

Personal VPN Pro - although it’s more expensive, it does give you the whole access, meaning you don’t have to worry about where you are going. With this plan you’ll be able to access all the locations you want and there will be no issues when entering countries that have limited or censored internet services (in China you’ll need special settings & in Syria the export is restricted).

CloakBox Pro VPN - you can also purchase a router for your home and/or office, ideal for devices that have no built VPN in or to plugin a few devices to share one VPN tunnel. Here the prices rise to over $200 the hardware, services and support will lead to over $100/year.

2. Sign-up to Amazon - If you’re interested in the Boxee Box or the Slingbox, you can purchase these through Amazon for example.

As you can see it’s not as simple, to watch Aussie TV abroad, as one might think, but with this information you’ll get a good stepping stone to research the possibilities. But always have in mind, before you even start the research, to clearly state what is the purpose you, your family or your business, are going to have with this VPN tool.
