What is Zattoo, and how can I watch it?

Zattoo is considered one of the best streaming TV providers in Europe. It was certainly one of the first. Zattoo came into existence in 2006, and it didn’t take long before it had over 10 million international subscribers.

The platform was created to stream the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Switzerland. Following its success, its reach and content grew to become the service it is today.

Zattoo streams live television from the biggest selection of European broadcasters you’ll find. There’s access to a massive range of English, French, Spanish, and German-speaking channels. And that’s just the start. There are many more other-language channels available when you start digging into their massive selection.

When it comes to all of those channels, there are well over 200 you’ll have instant access to with a Zattoo free account, from over 150 European TV networks. When you sign up for the Premium or Ultimate service, you’ll get over a hundred of them in HD. What’s more, Zattoo has even more packages and functions, available via their add-ons. Need more romance? More sport? More concerts and culture? Or even country-specific viewing? Zattoo has it all.

What you’ll also get from signing up to the paid options, is the ability to record your shows, replay and pause live TV, and unlimited streaming of up to 4 different streams.

You can watch the BBC, MTV, VOX, Nitro, or CNN on Zattoo. So, whether you need your fix of sports, news, movies or TV shows, from your favourite channels in every corner of Europe—Zattoo has just what you need.

How can I watch Zattoo with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator provides Zattoo with a virtual location that makes their servers think you’re in Switzerland—just where you need to be to access all of those live channels.

Our ingenious hub communicates with Zattoo, providing it with exactly what it needs to allow you to sign up, start streaming and enjoying all the latest shows from all over Europe.

No complicated settings or software installation required

With StreamLocator, there are no complicated settings to apply, no software packs to download and install—just a simple and straightforward plug-and-play hub that does all the work for you.

Because our hub works with your WiFi router, it automatically caters for all of your Internet-enabled devices. With other methods, you’d have to install their software on every device you’d plan to watch Zattoo with. Not ours. Plug it in, and your Chromecast, Roku, Apple and Amazon Fire TV, smartphones and tablets, and even your games consoles are all covered seamlessly.

Our smart-hub ships to you when you sign up for a subscription. It works with all existing WiFi routers, it doesn’t affect your day-to-day online activity at all, and it won’t slow your network speeds down.

If you need to connect to more than one service, don’t worry, it does that too. In fact, you can connect to as many services in as many countries as your family needs. StreamLocator connects them all at the same time without you even having to think about it.

How to watch Zattoo from outside Switzerland

Zattoo, like many other TV service providers, uses a geolocation system to pinpoint where its viewers are. They are only allowed to provide TV to specific countries. Right now, those are Germany and Switzerland, although if you’ve set up an account in either of those, you should be able to access the channels from a selection of other European countries.

If you’d like access to Zattoo and you’re anywhere else in the world, you’re going to need a workaround method such as VPN or Smart DNS, to provide you with the virtual location you need.

How to register for Zattoo from outside Switzerland

With StreamLocator working in the background and a virtual Swiss location in action, registering for your free account is straightforward.

You can sign up for any of the Zattoo plans’ free 30-day trials, and if you like them, you can start to pay for them at the end of your free month.

You should be able to pay with any nationality credit card (Visa or Mastercard), but if you run into problems, they also accept PayPal.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Zattoo from outside Switzerland?

There are a few different services that create the virtual location you’ll need to access channels and streams from other countries. Both VPN and Smart DNS are very popular but have mixed degrees of success.

You might have to try several locations within your app or software until you find one that works. A cheap VPN service can slow down your network speeds considerably, making viewing patchy and unpredictable. Some of the bigger VPN and DNS system providers use IP addresses that are easily recognised and blocked from having far more connections than you’d expect from a typical household.

We believe StreamLocator is your best option by far because of its unique system. It isn’t limited to only one method or workaround technique. It uses different types of technology to find the perfect solution for each system.

Our hub communicates with the Zattoo servers to create the best way to get around their blockades. That way, you get the access you need, and without all the fuss.

How to unblock Zattoo

Unblocking Zattoo is easy with StreamLocator, wherever you are in the world.

  1. Plug your StreamLocator hub into any of the open ports of your WiFi router.
  2. Activate your subscription account.
  3. Switch over to the new STREAMLOCATOR network in your WiFi options.

And that’s it! StreamLocator gets straight to work, accessing the services you need without you having to lift a finger.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Zattoo for free?

There are so many great channels on Zattoo that are available to view with their free service. And that’s how they’ll stay. Free. However, if you want to access their Premium, Ultimate or any of their add-on services, then we’re afraid you’ll still have to pay for them.
