Note: For Android / iPad / iPhone: If the TV site is redirecting to download their app, you can set your Chrome browser to request for a Desktop site and access it again.

If that didn’t work, you will need to download the TV app(s) from the Apple App / Google play store.

If your iTunes account’s region is not set to the country where the app is made available, you will not be able to download it due to region restrictions.

Example: BBC iPlayer (UK), fuboTV (USA), RTBF (Belgium) etc.

To resolve this, please follow the instructions at the link(s) below:


How To Watch Tokyo 2020 Olympics Live Stream On Apple TV?

You will first need to download the TV app that supports Tokyo 2020 Olympics live stream. e;g fuboTV,  Olympic Channel or BBC iPlayer app etc from the App Store.

If you can’t download due to region restriction, you will need to create a new iTunes account and set the UK (the US for fuboTV) as the region during registration. You can use a name/address generator to fill up the details.

Next, login into your Apple TV using the new iTunes account you created and you should be able to download the fuboTV / Olympic Channel / BBC iPlayer app from the app store.

Note: Please also ensure you’ve followed Step 1-3 in this article.

Is Smart DNS Proxy Safe?

Absolutely! Most of the region-restricted websites have an initial location check, so a Smart DNS service routes this request to their servers so you can bypass them.

This is a great service for Streaming as they only route the Internet traffic for the TV sites they support. Any other Internet traffic goes directly onto the Internet without Smart DNS service automatically.


Is Smart DNS Proxy Free?

You can use their service for 14 days for Free! They will not ask for your payment details and therefore, you will not be charged.

On the 14th day, you can either take a subscription with them or just don’t take any action. The free trial account will be automatically cancelled.

Personally, I would highly recommend their service because they support over 600+ TV channels and you can access it from anywhere in the world.

As low as $4 per month, their subscription is really cheap and it’s a good bargain.

This is also a great service for those who want to cancel their expensive cable TV subscription and look for a cheaper alternative.

Smart DNS Proxy Stopped Working?

Unfortunately, whenever your public IP address changes, you will need to activate/update your IP.

To do so, login into your account and click on Activate next to IP activation and you’re done.

Smart DNS Proxy Stopped Working

Just to share, your IP address could have changed due to;

  • You are connecting from a different network. (Other Wi-Fi / 4G)
  • Your Internet connection got cut off momentarily.
  • Internet router was rebooted.
  • Your ISP made some changes or rebooted their system on their back end.
