Get CW TV in Australia with VPN
All American streaming channels are geoblocked outside USA. Given the high quality TV shows available on these channels, people living abroad have long been searching for way to get around geo-restrictions. What you basically need to watch US channels like The CW is an American IP address. Thanks to virtual private network, aka VPN, you can virtually get a US, UK, Canadian IP address from the comfort of your sofa in Australia.
VPN allows you to unblock all US streaming website and apps in Australia. Watch US Netflix, Hulu, CWTV, CBS All Access, HBO Go, Crackle, Vudu and many others.
As long as you are using VPN, your ISP will not be able to spy on your online activity. All your Internet traffic is securely encrypted.
You can easily setup VPN on Android, iPhone, iPad, PC, and Mac thanks to VPN apps.
Go to ExpressVPN, sign up for a VPN account, and install the VPN app on your streaming device. That’s basically all what you need to do in order to watch CW TV in Australia.
How to Watch CW TV outside USA with Smart DNS Proxies
Smart DNS, similarly to VPN, enables you to bypass regional restrictions, albeit with a different approach. You still appear to be surfing the web using your normal Australian IP address with Smart DNS. Only those URLs which expose your location to the channel you are trying to unblock are redirected. This method has both its pros and cons.
You will not be able to browse the Internet anonymously with Smart DNS.
Only those channels supported by your Smart DNS proxy service can be unblocked.
No traffic encryption.
As for the pros, you can configure Smart DNS on Xbox, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, PC, Mac, Android, and iOS.
You do not need to download any additional software to get it to work. Although this part is optional for VPN, it does facilitate the installation process quite a lot.
I’ve tried a handful of Smart DNS proxy services. The only one that allowed me to unblock CW TV on all my streaming devices was Unlocator. I did not need to buy a subscription for their services either because of a free 7-day trial.
