Watch Tenplay from abroad

Would you like to watch Tenplay outside Australia? Wondering how it can be done in Windows, or on your Apple device or Android device? Read on!

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).


To access Tenplay, you must reside within Australia

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?

Windows/Mac: Watch Tenplay from abroad

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 ExpressVPN. 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 ExpressVPN website and sign up for a VPN subscription (you can read an ExpressVPN 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.

Android / Apple: Watch Tenplay from abroad

If you want to watch Tenplay on your mobile device, be it an Apple device or an Android device, then it can be done as well. The same method can be used if you want to watch 9Now outside Australia as well, so just read on to gain all the benefits described.

Install the Tenplay app (abroad)

To watch Tenplay on your mobile device you will first of all need to have the Tenplay application installed on your Apple device or Android device. If you have an Android device visit APKPure and download the application. Once you have installed the application you have done half the job already.

If you need to install the Tenplay app on your iPhone or iPad, things are a bit harder. You will need to download it from the Apple Store, but unless you have an Australian Apple ID, this can’t be done. To get an Australian Apple ID, create a brand new Apple ID registered with an Australian address right here, and login to the Apple store with this Apple ID. Afterwards you can log back in with your original Apple ID, but just for the sake of downloading the Tenplay application from the Apple Store (and maybe the 9Now application), this needs to be done.

Once you have the Tenplay application installed

Now that you have the Tenplay application installed you need to visit the ExpressVPN website to sign up for their VPN services.

Visit the ExpressVPN website

Click the button above to visit their website and to sign up for their VPN services. Once this is done, download the ExpressVPN application to your iPhone, iPad or Android device, open the application and connect to a server in Australia.

When you are connected you open the Tenplay application (or 9Now) and you can start watching. Do not forget that you have to completely close the application first, and only open it after you are connected to an Australian server with ExpressVPN.

You are now ready to watch Tenplay from abroad, both on Windows computer, Mac computers, iOS and Android devices. Have a good time doing so!

Have you followed these instructions?

I hope you will follow these instructions telling you how to watch Tenplay from abroad and if you do, you can start watching X-Files, 24: Legacy, Neighbours, The Bold and the Beautiful, Elementary and lots of other success TV series on Tenplay online outside Australia. Enjoy!

    Hi, I have just downloaded expressvpn so that I can watch tenplay and it’s not working?!

      Hey Jean,
      based on your comment I gave it a try once more. I connected to Melbourne server with ExpressVPN, and at once I was able to stream Masterchef on TenPlay (and other programs). Give it a try once again! If you have further trouble, just write a new comment or contact that ExpressVPN customer service who are quick to help!

    Tested ExpressVPN to stream Tenplay and it worked. I connected to the Melbourne server like described in comment above, and I were able to watch my favourite shows.

    I want to stream Tenplay on my Android device, but can I use other VPN services like the Opera VPN, or is it just ExpressVPN that will work? Are you sure that it works on Android as well, not only in Windows?

      I do not know about other VPN providers working with Tenplay, so I would just use ExpressVPN. I just tested it on my Android device and it works, so that will save you a lot of time. If you try to start Tenplay on your Android without a VPN, or with a VPN not working, the video will start loading, and then it will just load and load and load forever, with nothing else happening (I tried that as well). Follow the instructions above, download the Tenplay app to your Android, and you can be ready to watch in a few minutes!

      Hello there,
      just tried it with the Sydney server (not number 2). It was a bit slow, but worked. Give it a try, and you should also contact the ExpressVPN customer service, hopefully they will get hold of a new server in addition!!

    I just follow the instructions, and I had no trouble with this, and it wasn’t even slow. No buffering, nor anything else as I stream Tenplay!! SMILEY!
