How To Avoid “Sorry! The page you are looking for is not available in your region” When Streaming VEVO Videos Outside the USA

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

VEVO (vevo.com) is an incredibly popular online music service. The site offers more than 75,000 music videos, live performances, artist interviews, behind-the-scene action as well as several original programs to make it a one-stop destination for music lovers. VEVO is also available for iPhones, iPads and Android Smartphones through native apps which also support playlists, top charts, HD premieres, social sharing and access to VEVO TV.

Even though VEVO has partnerships with AOL, YouTube, Last.fm and other content providers, its official site is available only inside USA, Australia, Canada, France, Brazil, Netherlands, Italy, New Zealand, Ireland, United Kingdom, Spain and Poland. People from other countries see a “Content Unavailable” or “Sorry! The page you are looking for is not available in your region” message whenever they try to access VEVO’s website. These restrictions also make it impossible for expats and tourists to access their favorite premium VEVO content from abroad.

Just like other content providers, VEVO relies on the IP address of its visitors to determine their location. This means it is possible to access VEVO site if you are able to change your IP address. Proxies and virtual private networks are considered as the best solutions for changing IP address.

While both proxies and VPNs can be used to access video streaming sites, VPNs have got certain advantages over proxies. Public proxies are excruciatingly slow since they are used by hundreds of people simultaneously. Moreover, proxies are prone to leaking real IP so they are not really helpful for hiding IP addresses from providers like VEVO. VPNs, on the other hand, offer incredibly high speeds and unmatched privacy that is necessary for accessing video streaming services on the web.

How To Watch VEVO Programs And Streaming Videos Outside US With A VPN

Step 1:  First you need to subscribe to a US IP VPN provider. For unblocking VEVO videos and programs, you can opt for the unlimited bandwidth and speed VPN plans available from Overplay, ExpressVPNibVPNHideMyAss, VyprVPN, and IPVanish. All these VPN vendors are renowned for their American VPN offers and they are in a position to provide exceptional speed and privacy required for streaming websites like VEVO.

Step 2:  Next you need to change your network configuration or simply install the VPN client provided by your VPN vendor. For handheld mobile devices like Smartphones and tablets, there is no software installation essential but you will need to configure the VPN by tweaking a few network settings.

Step 3:  Apply the updates and then reboot your desktop computer or laptop if required (not needed for Smartphones and tablets). As far as mobile devices are concerned, you only need to save and apply the new updates and restart the VEVO app to use the brand new network settings.

Step 4:  Launch the VPN program by simply clicking on the VPN icon or the Connect button.

Step 5:  Make sure to choose a US VPN server in the event that default VPN server is not from America. Just about all VPN providers have servers in many countries so you will have to pick a server from US to unlock all VEVO videos. In case your VPN provider offers numerous VPN servers in USA, pick a server that is closest to your actual location so that you get faster streaming speeds.

Step 6:  Browse to the VEVO web-site once more and check whether you are able to unlock music videos and other programs. To access VEVO through tablets and Smartphones, simply close the native app and restart it to unlock all features. In case you face problems, don’t forget to contact your VPN service provider to get the issue resolved.
