How to watch the Tour de France 2018 Online Anywhere

The Tour the France 2018 is upon us. One of the biggest and the most respect cycling turs of the year. If for any reason – holiday travels, wrong location, etc, you are cut off from your TV here is our guide – how to watch the Tour de France 2018 Online anywhere in the world. 


I can’t watch the Tour de France 2018 Online – why?

The reason for this is very simple and it is called the money. As with any other content these days it is sold to a great many different companies with the rights to broadcast it in selected regions. The wider the reach, the more money for the broadcast rights. Because of that, most companies limit the broadcast range to their own, “local” markets. After all, if you broadcast commentary in German, there are small chances you will get plenty of viewers in the USA. But you’d need to pay just as you would.

So, for that very reason, there is a good chance that if you will access one of the services above from the unsupported region you will be informed, that due to geographical restrictions you cannot access required content. Don’t worry though. We do have ways to resolve this problem.

How to Watch the Tour de France Online anywhere?

Since the day geographical restrictions were put in place, the online community has developed ways to bypass them. Here are two simple ways to unblock TV & video services. 2 ways to do this: use VPN or Smart DNS.


Change your IP address with a VPN Service

The first method involves what is called VPN. Here you can find out more about how VPN works, but in short, it is quite simple. Any device connected to a VPN server uses such server as an intermediary. All accessed websites and services can see a VPN server, not user connected to it. Additionally, because all traffic in the VPN tunnel is encrypted it also increases the safety of the data send and received. You may read more about reasons to use VPN here.

And don’t worry – VPN is very easy to use. Install one of our free VPN apps on your device, log in and enjoy lack of any geographical restrictions.


No VPN support? Use Smart DNS!

But what, if the device you wish to use to watch the Tour de France 2018 Online does not support VPN? Don’t worry! Proxy server work in a similar way to a VPN server. Although they do not offer any sort of encryption they do work as an intermediary. That means, that connection to any TV/VOD service through a proxy will achieve the same effect – unblock of restricted content.

To make the use of proxy servers easy, we created a service called Smart DNS. DNS server (Domain Name System) translates web addresses into IP addresses – it sort of “knows where each web page is.  Now, when instead of default DNS server you will switch to use ours, it will “recognize” when it should transfer your data through a specific proxy server in a specific country. With the use of Smart DNS you can use services in the USA and UK at the same time. Without any additional changes on your end.

All you need to do is subscribe to Smart DNS and change DNS settings in your device (Smart TV or game console) or home router so that all devices in your household can use it.
