What is TVPlayer, and how can I watch it?

TVPlayer offers a subscription-based service, streaming live TV across a range of devices, from some of the UK’s premium free-to-air broadcasters. It has over 50 channels in categories that include drama, reality TV, sport, kids TV and lifestyle programming.

There are 2 levels of service. A Basic account provides free access to the many free-to-view channels. A Premium account allows viewers to access premium channels that aren’t available on Freeview or Freesat.

You’ll also find plenty of catchup and on-demand shows and channels. With a rolling monthly no-contract subscription, you’re free to cancel at any time you like.

For viewers on-the-fly, TVPlayer is a superb option. You’ll never have to miss another episode of Eastenders, Emmerdale or Coronation Street again. Fancy a movie? Why not tune into Film 4? If documentaries are more your thing, try Discovery, any of the Think channels, or why not give Crime + Investigation a go?

A TVPlayer account provides access to some brilliant live-streaming TV for viewers all over the UK. With StreamLocator, you can access the same great shows from anywhere in the world.

How can I watch TVPlayer with StreamLocator?

TVPlayer requires that all of their viewers be in the United Kingdom to access their streaming channels and shows. StreamLocator provides you with a virtual location exactly where you need to be.

Our ingenious hub provides the TVPlayer servers with a British location. Once that’s sorted, their servers allow you to register an account and start streaming their channels—wherever you are.

No complicated settings or software installation required

Alternative location-based workarounds require viewers to download and install special software to acquire access. Not only that, but you also need to install it on every different device you plan to use to watch the shows.

StreamLocator doesn’t expect you to do any of that. There’s no software to add or DNS settings or profiles to change or activate. Just plug it in, and that’s it. Our system provides you with entirely unrestricted geographical access without the fuss.

Our hub works with your router, so it caters for access through any of your Internet-enabled devices. It’s the simplest system for your Smart TVs, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV sticks and devices, and even your games consoles.

Our smart hub comes with every subscription and doesn’t impact your WiFi connection or network speeds in any way. In fact, your everyday online activities will never be affected—apart from granting you access to all of the blocked content that was previously unavailable.

Connect as many devices as you like, and to as many different channels and services in different countries. StreamLocator takes care of them all without you even knowing it’s doing it. It integrates seamlessly with your existing hardware, to provide the simplest access to streaming services you can find.

How to watch TVPlayer from outside the UK

TVPlayer uses geo-location technology to find out where its viewers are located. If they’re not in the UK, it won’t allow access to their service. Fortunately, there are a few fixes to get around the blockades.

Both VPN and Smart DNS systems provide a virtual location in the UK, so the TVPlayer servers see a suitable IP address. All you need after that is to register and subscribe for the service.

How to register for TVPlayer from outside the UK

With StreamLocator in place, TVPlayer sees a UK IP address it requires and allows the registration process to begin. Alternatively, you can sign up for their free trial for 30 days and decide if it’s the right fit for you.

To register, all you’ll need to provide is an email address and a password.

If you want to sign up for a Premium account, you should be able to pay with your credit card, but if your card is declined for any reason, you can subscribe to TVPlayer on iOS or iTunes or via the app on Apple TV. You can pay for your subscription in-app using UK-specific iTunes or App Store gift cards.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch TVPlayer from outside the UK?

Not necessarily. VPN and Smart DNS are both readily accepted methods of getting around the geo-blocks put in place by the TVPlayer servers. However, if you want the easiest and most effortless way to connect, then StreamLocator is the system for you.

Many of the streaming services are homing in on the number of viewers accessing their shows using VPN services. If they detect an IP address with far more connections than you’d expect from a typical household, they’ll suspect foul play and block the address. The same goes for popular IP addresses that have already been recognised and blacklisted as VPNs.

StreamLocator gets around any issues by communicating with each server it connects with. It configures the best method of access and automatically applies it, without you knowing it’s doing it.

We told you it was clever.

How to unblock TVPlayer

Gaining access to TVPlayer is simple with StreamLocator.

When you sign up for a subscription, we ship you our smart hub. All you need to do is plug it into any of the open ports on your WiFi router, follow a few simple steps to activate your account, and that’s it.

You’ll find a new network option, STREAMLOCATOR, in your WiFi list. Use that to connect your devices to the Internet and leave StreamLocator to do the rest.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch TVPlayer for free?

A TVPlayer free account allows you access to their free-to-view channels however you access them. If you’d like access to the premium channels, then you have to pay—whether you access the platform directly or using StreamLocator.
