Unlocator offers a 7-days free trial account that you can try out before deciding to subscribe to their paid service.
Do you want to access 200+ TV channels from your device(s) from anywhere in the world? You can now with Unlocator Smart DNS service!
The registration process is simple and the best part is, you don’t need to enter your payment(card) details and therefore, you will not be charged automatically.
How Does Unlocator DNS Work?
Basically, the service works by redirecting certain traffic via Smart DNS servers located throughout the globe. So for example, say you want to watch the UK’s BBC iPlayer from abroad, instead of your computer connecting directly to the BBC iPlayer servers, it is automatically redirected so that it connects via Smart DNS servers in the United Kingdom.
As a result, BBC iPlayer thinks that you are actually in the United Kingdom and lets you access the site.
This service is highly recommended if you’re planning to use a service to access geo-restricted TV channels.

Is Unlocator Safe To Use?
Absolutely! Most of the region-restricted websites have an initial location check. Unlocator 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 Unlocator service automatically.

Should I Use Unlocator VPN Or Smart DNS?
If you want to use a service just to access geo-restricted media/sites, you should always use a Smart DNS but if security is your concern, you should always go for a VPN service.
Below are the comparison;
- It does not encrypt your traffic or data that is transmitted through the Internet.
- It does not change the IP address of your network.
- Only works with channels that are added and supported manually but the list is pretty extensive!
- Streaming speed will be wholly dependent on both your Internet connection speed and the stability of your Internet to the service you’re watching instead of provider’s servers.
- Simultaneous streaming from channels in different regions.
- Supported on a wider range of devices.
- Encrypts your traffic and data that is transmitted through the Internet.
- Changes your IP address to the country of the VPN server of your choice.
- The connection is slighter slower than local Internet speed due to encryption overhead and as the VPN server in between.
- Almost all channels and sites that are geo-restricted for that particular country can be accessed whilst connected to the VPN.
