The 10Play and 9Now VPN ban

What we know, is that 10Play and 9Now are banning 99,9% of all VPN providers and all their servers on the market. If you use 10Play, you might get by the geo-block error message, but then you will be stopped by a circle going around and around, with no chance of actually pressing the play button at the website. With 9Now, you might just get the geo-block error message, normally seen on a black screen as you try to stream any content at the website.

VPN providers working with 10Play and 9Now

I have just tested the one VPN provider I do know to work with both 10Play and 9Now (and also with ABC iview), and that is NordVPN and SurfsharkVPN. I can firmly say that their servers are working. As a result, this is the VPN service you need to pick and choose if you want to stream 10Play and 9Now outside Australia. You can use both providers to watch live streams and on-demand programs on 9Now, and you can use both to stream on-demand content on 10Play (live streams doesn’t seem to work).

Important to knew when you stream 9Now and 10Play abroad with NordVPN/SurfsharkVPN

I know people have tried to stream 9Now and Tenplay with NordVPN, and later said that it didn’t work. It might be true, but there are certain things you can do to help the matter.

  • First of all, try to connect to the different servers in Australia and give them a try. By default, everyone should work, but if you have trouble, connect to a different server in a different city.
  • Contact the customer service through the live chat at the SurfsharkVPN/NordVPN website.
  • Make sure to open your browser in Privacy/Private/Incognito mode. This is to make sure all cookies and stored information is removed, which will help you get access to the services without your browser sharing information about your previous whereabouts with the websites. This is normally not necessary, but it is a good advice in case you have trouble.

If you follow all these instructions, you should have a working method as of July 2020 that will help you stream both 9Now and 10Play outside Australia.
