If you want to watch TF1 from abroad you will soon notice that there are some problems occuring. Normally you will simply be shown a black video screen just waiting to start, but it will never really start at all. That is caused by a block making the TF1 stream only available to people located in France, people with a French IP address.
I wrote an article about how to get a French IP address earlier, so just click the link in the intro of the text to read that one. However, I will write it here as well, so that you can understand how to watch TF1 from all over the world easily.
To watch TF1 from abroad
To watch TF1 from abroad you need to make the Internet and whatever website you visit (in this case the website of TF1) believe that you are located in France. You need to make them believe that you are located in France, because they have a regulation making their online content only available to people in France. To make TF1 believe that you are located in France you will need to make it look like your computer is in France, and this can be done by connecting your computer to a computer in France. Thus there will be a tunnel between your computer and the computer in France, and after the connection has been made it will look like all your Internet activity will origin from France. The result is therefore that all content earlier blocked will turn open, and then you will be able to watch TF1 and other great content online easily. What I just described here is what most people would call a VPN connection. There are several VPN services available with servers in France, and to make it easier for you I have tried quite a lot of them. Based on personal experience my conclusion is the HideMyAss is the ideal service and tool for those who want a French IP address and who want to watch TF1 from abroad. If you want to know more about HideMyAss, you can read my review here.
Once you visit the HideMyAss website all you need to do is to sign up for their services (for one month, 6 months or for 12 months). You will during the sign up process create your own username and password. Later you download the HideMyAss program, add your username and password and connect to a server in France and you are ready to go and to watch TF1 from abroad.
