How To Watch Geo-Blocked Apps On Samsung Smart TV?

If you’re not in the country where the apps was made available, you will be blocked from accessing it.

E.g: Say you’re in Spain and you want to access BBC iPlayer (UK). You’ve changed your TV’s region to the UK and upon launching BBC iPlayer app, it detects you’re outside UK.

To resolve this, you will need to set up a Smart DNS service on your Samsung Smart TV so you can bypass the region restrictions and access BBC iPlayer programmes.
