Traveling but Still Want to Access Bollywood Movies Online? Here’s How to Connect to Indian TV by Using VPN


India’s outbound tourism is on a serious growth: by 2020, 50 million Indian tourists per year will be traveling abroad.  Summer is the time of travel, and when you go abroad, it would be nice to also take your favorite TV channels with you.

If you are an Indian traveling abroad, you would certainly like to watch such Indian channels as Hotstar, Star Sports or Jio TV and get up to date with Bollywood movies, TV shows, politics and sports from your hotel room in Thailand, London or anywhere in the world.

While these programs are available online in India, they may not be accessible anymore when you go abroad. When you are outside of India, the IP address of your device will reflect the change of your location and, therefore, most of the Indian content may be blocked.

The solution? VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) allow users to connect to the Internet without geographical restrictions.

It will link your device to a server in India via an encrypted tunnel – for example, a person can appear to be in India, while they actually are in the U.S., simply by choosing a different VPN server location.

A VPN you are using must have servers in India in order for you to connect and watch online TV as if you were on the couch at home. A VPN service likeNordVPN would allow you to circumvent geographical restrictions by hiding your real IP address and substituting it with the address of your desired location. When the streaming site looks at your IP, it will see the IP of the VPN server.

In addition, in certain cases, ISPs may throttle your speed when accessing the specific content. However, when you connect to a VPN, ISP will no longer be able to set different speed limits for different websites.

VPNs also offer security by encrypting all data shared between the Internet and a user’s system, so none of the data can be compromised.

If you like to travel light and avoid packing your computer, NordVPN offers easy-to-use mobile apps for Android and iOS devices.
