CBC is one of the best TV channels in the world and they have fantastic programs available on their CBC Player. Besides those programs, CBC often broadcast live from sports events, and to enjoy both live streams and programs in the CBC Player you need to do some small stuff.
If you want to watch CBC from abroad, in other words, to watch CBC from outside Canada, either a live stream or a program available in the CBC Player, you will need to get a Canadian IP address. My favorite tool which gives me a Canadian IP address is PureVPN, so if you are in a hurry, just visit their website and sign up for their service. Download their program and connect to a server in Canada, and you will get yourself a Canadian IP after restarting your browser you can watch all content in the CBC Player and of course available live streams.
CBC online with and without a Canadian IP address
If you try to watch CBC Player online without a Canadian IP address, you will probably see something similar to this picture.
But, why sit around and look at that error message when you can watch CBC online without any trouble?
There are lots of programs available on CBC worth watching, and the channel also broadcast live from large sports events. So, in order to watch CBC outside Canada, do as follows:
- Visit the PureVPN website.
- Download the PureVPN client to your computer or mobile device.
- Connect to a server in Canada.
- Restart your browser or your CBC application.
- You are now ready to stream CBC all across the world.
Would you like to see how this is done in a video? Take a look at the three-minute video beneath to see how you can get rid of the CBC error message and actually watch the action instead of using PureVPN.
