MTV online (mtv.com) is one of the most popular destinations for music lovers. The online version of the popular music channel provides exclusive access to music videos, entertainment shows, music news as well as streams for live shows and current musical events. The MTV streaming service can be enjoyed on mobile devices such as iPads, Android based tablets and Smartphones, iPhones with the help of MTV native apps as well as on Smart TVs, gaming consoles and computers.

MTV online is home to hundreds of popular entertainment and musical shows that capture the pulse of music lovers. Some of the most popular programs on the channel like 10 on Top, Awkward, 16 and Pregnant, BUCKWILD, Beavis and Butt-Head, Failosophy, Catfish: The TV Show, The Challenge: Battle Of The Seasons, Geordie Shore, Friendzone, Jersey Shore, Girl Code, MADE, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, MTV Unplugged, Nikki & Sara LIVE, Real World Portland, Pranked, The Show With Vinny, Snooki & JWOWW, Teen Mom, Ridiculousness, Teen Wolf, World Of Jenks, True Life, and Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous; are watched by hundreds of thousands of people every day.

“Sorry, this video is unavailable from your location”

Even though the online version of MTV is hugely popular among masses, most of its programs and videos are not available outside US. If you try to watch a show from an international location, you will get a message that reads: “Sorry, this video is unavailable from your location.” This is mainly due to content sharing agreements that MTV has signed up with content providers from other countries. These restrictions prove incredibly frustrating for US expats, tourists and people from other countries who often rely on MTV for their music entertainment needs.

The MTV site blocks people from other countries since it is able to detect their location through their IP address. So if you want to access your favorite MTV shows and streams from abroad, you would need to change your IP address with the help of an IP changing service like a proxy or a virtual private network. Just make sure that your IP changing service is able to provide you with a US IP address and you should be able to unlock MTV streaming service from anywhere.

When it comes to unblocking video streaming services, virtual private networks are far better than the proxies. Most proxies are used by a lot of people so the overall speed gets limited by everyone. VPNs, on the other hand, are backed by robust infrastructure and are available only to registered members, which make them ideal for high speed and bandwidth demanding services like video streaming. Some proxies even leak real IP addresses so you won’t be able to access MTV site through them but the chances of such a thing happening with a VPN is remote.
