How does playmoTV work?
All devices that are connected to the internet, including the one you're using to read this page, have an IP address. Your home IP address is linked to your internet provider and tells the world where you are.
The playmoTV DNS gateway helps you tell services are only available in certain regions that you are located in the accepted region, so you can access the services regardless of your location. This works as long as you're connected to a Wi-Fi network, configured to use playmoTV's DNS servers and your IP address is authorised by our system. That way you have unrestricted access to the services we support.
So in short, unless you are residing in a country where that service, like for example Sling TV (US), Hulu (US) or BBC iPlayer (UK), is available, you are not able to enjoy the service at all without playmoTV.
How to access geo-blocked services via playmoTV
- Sign up for an account with us.
- Configure your device to use our DNS servers by following the setup guide for your device (or devices) at playmo.tv/setup.
- Access the service you are interested in using. Some of the services we support are free (like Crackle, PBS, ABC, NBC), whereas others require an additional subscription, like HBO NOW, Sling TV, Hulu, Showtime.
Example: If you you're here looking to access Sling TV for the first time, then you need to have an account with us and then sign up for Sling TV as well.
How many devices can I use?
As many as you want, really. Check this article for detailed information on how many IP addresses are allowed at the same time, and how to authorise your IP address from new locations.
