Note: Some channels require you to register for a free account with them to provide a personalised experience on their sites.

Also, If you have a paid account with any of the listed TV coverage providers, you can also use them to access the matches from abroad.

Do I need To Register To Access BBC & ITV Hub?

Yes, both BBC and ITV requires users to register for a free account before they can watch their programmes. To do so, click on the link(s) below and follow the instructions:

Downloading region-restricted TV/Media App on iOS or Android device

Some apps are geo-restricted which means they are not available in your local app store. To resolve this, please follow the instructions at the links below:

If you’re still having problems TV apps, you can just install Google Chrome app on your device and access the TV site of your choice.

If the TV site is still forcing/redirecting to download their app, you can actually set your browser to request for a Desktop site and access it again.

Is Smart DNS Proxy Safe?

Absolutely! Most of the region-restricted websites have an initial location check, so a Smart DNS service route 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.
