If you want to make ProSieben believe that you are located in Germany, you will need to get a German IP address. But, how can you change your IP address into a German IP address?

Watch ProSieben from everywhere

To get a German IP you can, of course, connect your computer using a private VPN (meaning that you have a server at home in Germany, or by family or friends) to which you connect your computer. Once connected you can surf with a German IP and watch all blocked content. This is though impossible for most people and we need an easier solution. That is why there are quite a lot of companies out there providing such servers. All you need to do is to make a subscription to their services and once you have that you can connect to their server in Germany and you are ready to watch all blocked German content online, also on RTL and other channels.

Such providers or services are called VPN providers and in our IP Guide, we have written about several such services. They are all good, but if you want to find the best services in Germany we recommend that you use either PureVPN or NordVPN. These are VPN providers with servers in more than 100 nations worldwide, and they both have solid 30-day money back policies, meaning that you do not have to worry as you will get your money back if you do not like the service.

PureVPN has a 31-day full refund policy and you can use it to watch ProSieben MAXX abroad and all the other ProSieben channels. You can also use PureVPN to watch BBC and ITV in England, American Netflix, and lots of other services online.


NordVPN has a 30-day guarantee on your purchase, and they have one of the best services for those who want access to several different Netflix regions. They also work with ZDF and DasErste in Germany besides Prosieben.

  • Sign up for any of the mentioned VPN providers and download their VPN client to your computer or tablet or phone.
  • Connect to a server in Germany. Once you are connected, you will have a German IP address.
