Watch Tenplay from abroad

Tenplay is the online service from Network Ten. It is a brilliant service which makes it possible to watch several TV shows online for a certain amount of time after the program was originally aired, and tons of other stuff as well.

If you try to watch Tenplay from abroad you will see something like this (except from the text I added to the middle).

I am writing this article from central Europe, so at first when I tried to watch Network Ten, Tenplay, from outside of Australia I simply saw a black screen and the video didn’t want to start at all. Not very cool, especially since there are shows that I follow and would love to watch that are being aired on Network Ten and available at their Tenplay online service. So, what did I do to make things work anyway?

Watch Tenplay with an Australian IP address

To get rid of the black screen and start watching your favorite shows as you can see that I did on the screenshot above, you need to get an IP address in Australia. You need such an IP address because Network Ten use a geo-block because of copyright protection, meaning that only people located in Australia will be able to see the programs available online. To bypass this you need to make them believe that you are located in Australia, and this can be done by getting hold of a local IP address in Australia.

The way of getting such an IP address is using a VPN provider named StrongVPN. As I did these tests and wrote this article I decided to use their VPN services and to my great surprise I managed to watch without lagging, buffering and other stuff (which could be very normal considering my distance from Australia). All you need to do is to visit the StrongVPN website and sign up for a VPN subscription (you can read a StrongVPN review here). Once you have that you can download their VPN client which is very easy to use, connect to their fastest server in Australia and in minutes you are ready to go and to watch Network Ten, Tenplay, from wherever you are located in the world.

There are lots of VPN providers that do not work with Tenplay, but based on tests on December 5th, 2016, StrongVPN works perfectly if you want to watch Tenplay outside Australia!
