Best way to watch BNT from abroad?

Is your favorite TV program about to be shown on BNT? Or is Bulgaria playing an important soccer match that you want to watch, but you are unable to watch the BNT live stream because you are located outside Bulgaria?

The Bulgarian National Television channel (BNT), also known as Българска национална телевизия / Bŭlgarska natsionalna televiziya is an awesome channel in Bulgarian with loads of great TV shows, programs and events being broadcasted. They also have a live stream available on the net, and you can find the chance to watch BNT1, BNT2 and BNT World at the following site. The real problem is however that these broadcasts are mainly available only to those located geographically in Bulgaria, meaning that they surf the Internet with a Bulgarian IP address.

If you try to watch BNT from abroad, like we do, you will probably see a screen similar to this one.

We click play, but the BNT stream does not start. This is because of the geo-block.

The stream will check your geographical location before it starts, and if you are located outside Bulgaria you can press play as many times that you like, but the video/stream will not start. But, in the moment you get a Bulgarian IP address things will change and you will be able to watch all the available live streams and programs earlier unavailable to you. Here you can see two screenshots made by us as we tried to watch BNT1, with a Bulgarian IP address.
