How to watch TVB MyTV from outside of HK

MyTV broadcasts the latest TVB programs online with high quality, allowing you watch all TVs through the Internet or mobile devices. If you are a fan of Cantonese TV, you can watch them from video streaming service - myTV. TVB provides a lot of online content for free. MyTV contains most of the high-quality TVB programs provided by Jade, HD Jade, Pearl and J2 channels, available only few hours after aired. The on-demand video service offers prime time dramas, daily news, financial reviews, entertainment events and full episodes of programs from other TVB channels.

How to fix MyTV geo-block error (由於版權所限,故未能提供此內容!)

However the drawback is that myTV only streams to users who are located in Hong Kong. Try to access myTV from the US, China mainland, Korea or anywhere else in the world and you'll be greeted with this error message:

A Hong Kong VPN can fix myTV's geographic restriction problem, allowing you watch anything on TVB. When you try to access MyTV from outside Hong Kong, you run into a huge and impenetrable wall. It detects your IP address, then deny your enter. The HK VPN will assign you a HK IP address, then unblock myTV. But not all HongKong IP addresses provided by VPN/proxy work. We tested and found FlyVPN's free HongKong VPN servers are able to unblock myTV videos.

What's the difference between VPN and VPS

Though VPN and VPS have similar names, they are quite different. VPN is a good tool to change IP addresses of devices to access websites blocked due to geographic limit. VPS is about taking a physical device and distributing it among different client as if each of them getting a dedicated server.


What's VPN

VPN (virtual private network) is a network that is constructed by using Internet to connect to a private network. The VPN is created by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, virtual tunnelling protocols, or traffic encryption.

How VPN works

VPNs use a combination of dedicated connections and encryption protocols to generate virtual P2P connections. All your traffic would go through the VPN tunnel. Even if snoopers can't siphon off some of the transmitted data, they'd be unable to access it on account of the encryption. Refer to the VPN tutorials to setup a VPN on Mac, Windows laptop, iOS or Android phones/tablet.

VPN functions

  • Protect your online security
  • Stay safe from hackers & thieves
  • Prevent third parties from tracking you
  • Unblock games
  • Access your favorite websites and services
  • Surf the internet anonymously

What's VPS

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) is an 'instance' of an operating system running on a larger host. Like you rent some of the resources on a physical server run by a VPS company, which provides a closed environment that acts as if it was a complete physical remote server. You have root level access to the server while still sharing the hardware.

How VPS works

A VPS is created when one massive server is partitioned up so that it can have several servers on it running independently of each other. Virtualization layers are then created to make sure each virtual environment appears as a standalone server with the ability to run its own OS and applications. They work by a concept called as Virtualization. A host device will have a hypervisor installed in it which allocates host device resources to virtual private servers according to a configuration.

The advantages of VPS

VPS provides high speed connections to the internet. It's able to access the VPS from any internet enabled device that has a remote access client such as a smartphone, tablet computer or iPad.

A VPS is commonly used for many tasks from hosting websites to running remotely operated software, such as Bet Angel Professional. It is also great for companies if they have outgrown a shared hosting plan and are not yet ready to leap into the financial commitment involved in owning a dedicated server.

However, if you're outside the US on vacation, or perhaps you live in another country then Fox Sports just doesn't work meaning you can't watch its content. Read on as I'm going to show the amazingly simple steps needed to watch Fox Sports from any country.

Fox Sports Go

Fox Sports geographic restriction

You may have noticed that Fox Sports Go are geo-restricted and cannot be accessed from outside US. Fox Sports Go knows your location based on your IP Address. If you try to watch shows on it outside US, you will get error message showing the video is unavailable. Fox Sports blocks you most likely because they don't have the allowance from the copyright holders to exhibit their content in your location.

How to watch Fox Sports Go from outside of US

Thankfully, methods like VPN can fix the geo-limit problem. You can get a USA IP by using free USA VPN to watch Fox Sports online streaming, as well as almost any other similar service. FlyVPN's free VPN trial accounts are a good choice, giving you total freedom in web browsing with the facility to unblock & access all channels in different Countries with blazing fast speeds.
