ProSieben is one of the biggest TV stations in Germany and they are running their main channel ProSieben, but in addition, they also run the pay-TV channel ProSieben Fun, and their ProSieben Maxx where you can watch bigger sports events and other cool content. It is also an official broadcaster of the annual Academy Awards, an event that attracts viewers from all across the world as they look for a way to watch the gala online. So, how can I watch ProSieben online if I am located outside Germany?
How to watch ProSieben abroad – An Illustrated Guide
1. Register a free user at the website
The first thing you will notice as you visit the ProSieben website is that you need to register a user. This is completely free, so just follow the instructions and create a user on the website.
Click the user icon in the upper right corner of the website and go ahead and register a new user. You will start the process by giving your email address, or you can also log in using your Google account, Facebook account, or other social media profiles.
2. You need to make the ProSieben website believe that you are in Germany.
When you have created your account, you can log in with your credentials, and you should be able to start the process of watching ProSieben online. But, if you reside outside Germany, you will most likely get further error messages as you try to watch the ProSieben live stream or some other program available on the website.
Above you can see that there is a location error message coming as I try to stream ProSieben content outside Germany. This comes because the content is only available to people in Germany, that is, it can only be seen by people with a German IP address. So, how can you solve this problem? That is extremely easy.
In order to get a German IP address, you need to purchase a VPN subscription to either ExpressVPN or to SursfharkVPN. You can click the links in order to visit their websites. These are highly recommded VPN providers and they both have full refund policies, meaning that you can ask for a refund anytime within 30 days and receive your money back if you do not like their services. You can use both ExpressVPN and SurfsharkVPN on all your devices and they can be used on multiple devices simultaneously, meaning that one subscription can be used by the entire family at the same time.
3. You are now ready to watch ProSieben online
If you have bought an ExpressVPN subscription, download their application to your telephone, computer, and/or tablet. Run the program and connect to a server in Germany. This will give you a German IP address. If you use SurfsharkVPN (which is cheaper than ExpressVPN), download their VPN client to your devices and connect to one of their servers in Germany. If you want to check that you actually have a German IP address, visit the following site and check your IP address after you have connected to a VPN server in Germany.
Above you can see that I am using the ExpressVPN application and that I am connected to a server in Germany. I can now watch the ProSieben live stream, even though I am located elsewhere in Europe. This method can be used to watch the ProSieben live stream online and also to watch other programs on the website that can be found in the library of content.
Can I use the same method on Android and iOS devices?
Would you like to stream ProSieben on your Android device or on your iOS device? Can you use the same method in order for this to happen? Yes!
But, there is a slight difference, because you will need the ProSieben application installed on your iOS device or your Android device in order for this to work. But, besides that, the method is the same.
- First you will need a VPN subscription to either ExpressVPN or SurfsharkVPN installed on your tablet or phone.
- Then you will have to manually download the ProSieben application to your Android device. You can download the application manually from here. In order to download the ProSieben application to your iOS device, you need to generate a brand new Apple ID registered in Germany. To do so, connect to a German VPN server, and then create a brand new Apple ID registered with a German address. When the Apple ID is registered, use it on your iOS device as you open the Apple Store. You will now be able to find the ProSieben application in the Apple Store.
- Connect to a VPN server in Germany (if you are not connected already) and open the ProSieben application. Log in with your ProSieben user as well in the application. You are now ready to watch ProSieben on your iOS and Android device.
You can use the same method to stream other German TV networks as well
If you have followed these instructions, you will not only be able to stream ProSieben online, but you can also use the same method to watch ZDF, ARD, and other German TV channels online. In fact, you can use the same VPN and connect to servers in other countries and unblock content on TV networks such as BBC and ITV (in the UK), RAI (in Italy), NRK (in Norway), SVT (in Sweden), DR (in Denmark), and hundreds of other TV channels and streaming services worldwide.
It is also worth knowing that a VPN will encrypt your online activities, meaning that hackers and other people with bad intentions will have a much harder time actually spying on you and stealing your data than they would if you wouldn’t use a VPN.
