You can use as many devices as you want as long as they are in the same network and have the same external IP.
That’s gonna be a no. Channel 4 uses geo-restrictions to keep you from accessing its content if you’re not in the UK. If you try to do that, you’ll just get a quick error message.
Why does it pop up? Because the Channel 4 has to geo-block its content. They mostly do it because they need to comply with rights agreements.
A Smart DNS is an online service that gives you quick access to geo-blocked websites like Channel 4. Here’s how it can help you start watching Channel 4 abroad right now:
If neither of those previous options sound appealing, you can always try your luck with a proxy server. It acts as a middleman between you and Channel 4. Basically, it intercepts your connection requests, and forwards them to the site on your behalf.
While doing that, the proxy also hides your IP address like a VPN. Obviously, you’ll need to use a proxy server in the UK to watch Channel 4 outside UK.
VPNs are online services that hide your geo-location by giving you a new IP address. Don’t forget – your IP address tells websites what geographical region you are from. So, hiding it is a smart way to bypass geo-restrictions.
In this case, all you’d need to do is use a VPN server in the UK. Once you connect to Channel 4, you shouldn’t get any errors anymore since the site will think you are physically located in the UK.
