As you most probably know, Canal+ is geo-blocked and is only available for streaming in France. Whenever you try to watch anything from any part of the world outside France, you will see a message about unavailable content in your location.

How to watch Canal+ outside France

As access to Canal+ is restricted to France, there’s something that must be done so that Canal+ servers do not recognize your IP as coming from anywhere outside this territory. This happens not only if you live in the USA, Australia, Asia or anywhere else. It also happens if you simply travel away from France but would like to take your favorite shows with you.

The answer to all your worries is Smart DNS Proxy Smart DNS. Without changing your original IP, it masks it and takes some of the traffic through French servers thus making it appear as it if actually came from France – that’s it. No more geo blocks. You can stream Canal+ from anywhere in the world.

Doing it is just as easy as it sounds. You need to sign up with us for a free, 14-day trial, configure your device or devices to use Smart DNS, and start watching Canal+ (and other geo-blocked channels that we support). You can still access your local sites and your connection speed remains unchanged. No additional software, no extra costs, no hassle.

Unblock Canal+ with Smart DNS Proxy 

Another clever way to avoid geo-location is VPN. This solution is based on a secure virtual tunnel which reroutes your entire Internet traffic to a dedicated French server (fully encrypting it on the way). Not only are you able to access Canal+ from outside France (or any other geo-restricted streaming service of your choice) but you gain extra security which is crucial while using unprotected networks widely found in hotels, airports, cafes, shopping malls, etc.

If you encounter any problems, you can always contact us or visit our support page. We’re always here for you to help.

Being a regular Smart DNS Proxy subscriber gives you an opportunity to choose the level of security and the way of unblocking geo-restricted content from Canal+ and many other services worldwide. Join us and enjoy programming from all over the world, wherever you are.
