Many Spanish people want to watch television online de españa while they’re not in the country. The trouble is, the geo-blocking prevents them from accessing their favorite shows, as only the citizens of the country who live there are ‘allowed’ to watch the national television without restricted access, whereas ‘foreigners’ only get a portion.
Of course, that applies if you don’t know how to use Spanish proxies or if you don’t know have your own VPN. We’re here to talk about both.
Why can’t you watch Spanish television while you’re abroad
The copyright laws vary from country to country, but they’re pretty much universal when it comes to broadcasting platforms. Every broadcasting platform needs to pay substantial amounts of money for licenses required to broadcast a show, and every show comes at a different cost.
Of course, some of the premium ones such as Narcos, El Internado, Elite, Destions, Locked up, and such are generally ‘exclusive’ in a sense, but you’re practically gambling whenever you get in a hotel room (or rented apartment or such) – you might get those shows on your cable, but then again, you might not.
In order to ver television desde el extranjero without the aforementioned limitations caused by geo-blocking, we recommend that you use a VPN – virtual private network.
Which content is blocked?
Since we’ve briefly mentioned that you’re taking a huge gamble without a VPN, let’s discuss which content will be available to you if you opt for the cable network instead of the virtual private network.
The worst-case scenario is that you won’t be able to access ‘anything’. You’ll be able to watch the national shows, which basically means that if you don’t like the shows of the country you’re in, or if you don’t know the language, you’re totally out of luck.
On the flip side, paying some extra cash for a betel hotel room (or for a better apartment), there are chances that you’ll get a variety of shows to watch. However, you’ll still need to pay a lot of cash, even for some things you might not even need just so you could watch your favorite shows. Isn’t there a better alternative?
VPN – Virtual private network and how they could help you out
Basically, one of the best solutions for anyone who wants to watch online shows while they’re abroad is VPN. The virtual private network is practically tailor-made to bypass geo-blocks and anything similar, which only means that the shows that would otherwise be unavailable to you will be accessible at your whim.
The VPN providers offer different services at different prices, so your safest bet is to check them all out before you make the final decision on your budget. Despite the many features VPNs bring, one of the biggest and most important ones is that you will have your own private network, your own private connection. That means that the local networks will no longer be able to trace your activities online.
