What is TBS, and how can I watch it?

TBS (Turner Broadcasting System) is an American cable channel owned by AT&T’s WarnerMedia. It shows a wide variety of programming, focussing on, but not exclusively, comedy shows and sports events. You’ll also find plenty of drama and entertainment in the mix, so there’s plenty of great viewing for anyone who tunes in.

TBS viewers will typically find shows like The Last OG with Tracy Morgan or Miracle Workers with Daniel Radcliffe to keep themselves amused. Sports fans will be able to catch Major League Baseball, NBA and NCAA events.

For those with a cable subscription that includes TBS as part of the package, watching TBS live and online is as simple as signing in. There are apps for almost every device you can think of, or via their website.

For those without a cable subscription, then there are plenty of online TV services that include TBS as part of their bundle. You’ll probably have heard of Sling TV, FuboTV, and AT&T TV Now—all of which provide access to TBS’s live programming.

How can I watch TBS with StreamLocator?

To watch TBS online, you need to be in the USA.

Our smart router provides an American location so that when you visit any of the websites or apps that deliver TBS, that’s just what they see. With that taken care of, all of those great programs or sports events are unlocked and ready for you to to view.

No complicated settings or software installation required

Our router does all the hard work, so there’s no need for you to be installing software on your various Internet-enabled devices. You don’t have to change any of your DNS settings either.

Once it’s plugged in, it’s always on, scanning each system to provide a suitable location, without you having to even think about it. It won’t affect your Internet speed or any of your online activities. It’s like it isn’t even there.

It works effortlessly with Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV devices, games consoles, and Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

Whatever device you choose to stream your content, you can connect from anywhere in your home, just as you usually would. It handles as many devices at a time as you need—even if every one is accessing a different service in a different country. That’s no problem at all for our sensational pieces of tech.

How to watch TBS from outside the USA

TBS use geolocation tracking to pinpoint precisely where their online viewers are. If anyone tries to access the channel outside the US, then they get redirected to a page where the content isn’t available to watch. It’s standard practice for TV services with rights issues, and it’s infuriating for viewers all over the world looking to access the programs they can’t watch in their country.

To get around the issue, you’ll require some kind of location workaround. The most common methods are VPN or DNS services. To watch TBS, you’ll need one of those or something just like them.

How to register for TBS from outside the USA

TBS isn’t a free service, so if you don’t have a cable subscription that includes TBS, then you’ll need to sign up to an online provider that shows their live streams.

Sling TV, FuboTV, or AT&T TV Now—to name just a few—will grant you the access you’re looking for. Where there are sometimes issues paying for American services without a US credit card or payment option, there are always ways around that too. PayPal, gift cards or buying the service through the US App stores (Apple, Android and Amazon) will all provide the access you’re looking for.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch TBS from outside the USA?

You’ll need to circumvent the geolocation blockers to watch TBS. Whichever service you choose as your provider, they’ll have set up a way to prevent users outside the USA from accessing their content.

VPN and Smart DNS services are the most common options, but they each come with their own issues. Depending on the servers your VPN reroute you through, your Internet speeds can suffer, often making watching the TV you want far from worthwhile.

Some of the smart DNS services are becoming easier to spot and block by the detection services implemented by providers.

So, what’s the answer? Well, StreamLocator uses a combination of technologies to talk to the servers, providing them with what they need for you to be able to access their channels.

How to unblock TBS

The unblocking process is simple with StreamLocator.

Plug our smart hub into your WiFi router—any open port is fine—then follow a few simple steps to activate your account.

All you need to do then is switch WiFi networks on your device. Choose the new STREAMLOCATOR option, and all that geo-blocked content will be available.

It’s that easy.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch TBS for free?
