We recently updated this article when Dplay rebranded and relaunched as discovery+. Despite the growing trend of adding a plus symbol to the end of a brand name, there’s a lot more to shout about than just a logo and brand-name tweak.

Read on for all our StreamLocator and discovery+ service updates…

How can I watch discovery+ (Dplay) Italy, with StreamLocator?

With a vast range of free channels, it’s hardly surprising that the Italian catalogue of discovery+ is such a success. If you want to get your hands on the programs they offer, and you’re not based in Italy, then you’re going to need a way to make the discovery+ servers think you are.

StreamLocator provides its subscribers with a virtual Italian location—foiling the discovery+ location blocks, and granting access to all the streaming shows you can’t wait to watch.

No complicated settings or software installation required

We know just how important it is for our subscribers to get their hands on the shows they can’t wait to watch with the least effort possible.

Having to download special software, remembering to turn apps on every time you need a location workaround, or worse still, having to install DNS profiles when you don’t even know what they are, is way more fuss than most users need just to watch a few episodes of Naked Attraction Italia.

Our plug-and-play system does away with all of that and makes watching discovery + easier than it is via any other workaround.

Because our system works with your WiFi router, all your devices are automatically covered. That includes closed systems such as many Smart TVs and Chromecast. Our smart hub will deliver a seamless workaround for your Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Mac, PC, iPhone, Android, mobiles and tablets. It even covers your games consoles.

Once it’s on, it starts working and doesn’t stop. It doesn’t affect your Internet speeds either, unlike a lot of VPN services, and it provides your connections automatically.

What if you need multiple connections? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. VPNs and Smart DNS services limit the number of connections you can have, but we deliver as many as you want. And if you need connections in every room of the house, for services in just as many countries? It isn’t a problem with StreamLocator.

How to watch Discovery Plus from outside Italy

Discovery Plus’s system detects where its viewers are, and if they’re not in Italy, they’re blocked from their unique catalogue of shows. Blocking is a common occurrence for streaming services, down to differing licencing regulations from country to country.

Known as geo-location tracking, it allows the providers to pinpoint precisely where their online viewers are. To beat the blocks, you need a way to show Discovery Plus a virtual Italian location. The most popular methods are usually VPN and Smart DNS; only, over the last few years, they’ve become easier than ever for the streamers to track and block.

Now StreamLocator creates virtual locations for its subscribers too. Only, our system is smarter, more reliable, and never fails to grant the access you need.

How to register for Discovery Plus from outside Italy

To register for a Discovery Plus account in Italy, you can do it using your email address or using your Facebook account.

To pay for a Discovery Plus subscription, you’ll need one of the following: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or PayPal.

Discovery Plus subscriptions require an original Italian credit card, but if you haven’t got access to one, you can always set up an Italian PayPal account or use a pre-paid Italian credit card.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch discovery+ from outside Italy?

Not really. You need to appear to be in Italy to get past the location blocks, but it doesn’t have to involve a VPN or Smart DNS service. As we said earlier, the streaming services are becoming far better at spotting both of those, and blocking more and more of them as time goes by.

The beauty of StreamLocator is that it isn’t limited to a single technology. Our smart hub communicates with the streamer’s servers to find the best method of bypassing their geo-blockades. Because it utilizes a range of different technologies, it can pick the best one for the job.

That’s why we always get you a connection, and how we do it without you even noticing.

How to unblock discovery+

There’s very little to do with our plug-and-play system beyond plugging it in and turning it on.

When you subscribe to our service, we send you your own StreamLocator smart hub. When it arrives, plug it into your WiFi router and follow the few simple steps to activate your subscription.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll see a new network option in your WiFi list. Choose the STREAMLOCATOR network on any of your devices, and that’s it. Open the Discovery Plus website or download their app, and you’ll connect automatically.

It really is that easy.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Discovery Plus for free?

You can watch the standard ad-supported Discovery Plus service for free, but the subscription service and access to their full catalogue will require you to set up payment, as you usually would, for the service.
