Bypassing geo-restrictions

A large portion of those channels are geo-fenced, which implies that they are accessible just in specific territories and you may not be able to access those channels. There are two different ways available with our services to overcome this problem – Smart DNS or VPN. They can be used far and wide (USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Europe, Asia) and will enable you to stream the 2019 Roland Garros matches live on various devices (PC, Mac, iOS and Android gadgets, Roku, AppleTV, PS4, Xbox, Fire TV, Chromecast and others).

Find the service of your choice

Regardless of the fact whether you choose a paid subscription with the local sports coverage provider or free streamer, you will probably stumble upon geo-restriction error. You will probably need to register and, like in the case of, for example, iTV, aside from standard data like name, email address and a date of birth, you should give a legitimate UK postcode (WC1X 0AA will work).

VPN or Smart DNS?

Some basic differences between both services can be found here. They differ in the level of protection or speed. However, both of them can be used to access the services which otherwise will be unavailable for you. You can sign up with us for free and test our services for 14 days.
