Ran is a TV channel in Germany which is really good at streaming sports events and other great programs. But, if you try to watch Ran outside Germany, you will not be able to stream any thing at all. Instead, you will get an error message saying “Sorry, this video is not available in your country.” Well, what can you do to stream Ran abroad? How can you watch Ran outside Germany?
Ran is the name of the channel broadcasting sports events for Sat1, ProSieben, SIXX, and more in Germany. At Ran you can watch American football, rugby competitions, Davis Cup (and other Tennis competitions), Wrestling, Extremesports of all kinds, and so much more. But, then there is the problem when you try to watch Ran outside Germany. If you suffer from the same error message as us, you will see a screen looking something like this.
But, how can you fix this? How can you become able to stream Ran outside Germany? This is what you need to do!
Watch Ran outside Germany in a few steps!
To get rid of the error message you need to make the Ran website (or application) believe that you are located in Germany. This can be done easily by getting a German IP address. That might sound very complicated, but it is really easy, and this is what you need to do!
A VPN is a Virtual Private Network. This is something that is used to secure your online traffic by encrypting it before it goes online. In that way you and your private data is safe online even when using open WiFi networks. When using this to watch Ran outside Germany your traffic is sent through a German server which makes it look like you are surfing using a computer in Germany, and as a result, you can stream Ran abroad without error messages.
- Visit the website of the VPN provider NordVPN.
- Sign up for their services (you get most value for your money if you sign up for 1,2 or 3 years).
- Download their VPN client to your computer or mobile device.
- Install the application.
- Open the application and connect to a server in Germany.
- You now have a German IP address and you can stream Ran online!
On the above image you can see how I have connected to a server in Germany using NordVPN. Once I am connected I can reload the Ran website in my browser, and as I reload the page I will look like a German, and thus I will no longer get the error message. Instead I am now able to watch Ran and all its content online easily!
Above you can see how it is working. Let me also tell you that the quality of the image above isn’t really good, so you will have much better graphics than you see above as you stream live.ran.de outside Germany using NordVPN.
What else can you do with NordVPN?
Do not forget that you can use NordVPN to so much more than just streaming Ran outside Germany. In the same way, you can also use NordVPN to watch ZDF abroad and DasErste abroad, or you can use it to unblock streaming services such as American Netflix (with your current Netflix subscription), BBC in England, SonyLIV in India, and lots of other streaming sites. In fact, NordVPN will also help you access 5-6 other Netflix regions, making it a perfect solution for those in love with movies and TV shows and who want to get access to even more content without paying more.
NordVPN has a 30-day money back guarantee and ONE subscription can be used on SIX devices at the same time.
Not only does NordVPN help you unblock streaming services and TV networks online, it will also help you secure your data as you surf the Internet. Their VPN applications which can be used on Android TVs, Amazon Fire TV Stick, on Windows computers, on Android devices, on iOS devices, on Linux computers, and on Macintosh computers, is easy to use and even grandmothers will be able to use it without getting confused.
Would your rather watch Ran using ExpressVPN?
One of the biggest competitors of NordVPN in the VPN industry is the VPN provider ExpressVPN. While NordVPN is located in Panama, ExpressVPN has its centers in the British Virgin Islands. They are very similar providers and they both do mostly the same, but NordVPN has nicer prices if you want to sign up for a longer period of time. If you just want to use the VPN for a couple of days or weeks, the prices of ExpressVPN and NordVPN are mostly the same.
Click the button above to visit the ExpressVPN website. If you sign up for 12 months after clicking the button above, they will give you three months of free usage as a gift. Just like NordVPN, ExpressVPN has a 30-day money back guarantee, and a subscription can be used at three devices at the same time.
Just like NordVPN you can use ExpressVPN to get access to several other Netflix regions. It is no coincidence that both providers are on my list of the best VPNs for Netflix in the world at the moment. Both VPN providers normally give high speeds during download tests, and while ExpressVPN has servers in more than 90 nations, NordVPN is currently present in around 60 nations.
