If you’re looking for a way to watch Atresplayer outside Spain then I’ve got a solution for you that is incredibly easy to achieve.

In this article I’m going to show you the simple steps you can take that will enable you to watch Atresplayer from anywhere in the world and stream online as if you were in Spain.

If you’ve tried to access Atresplayer outside Spain then you’ll know like me that you’re blocked from viewing which can be annoying if you want to watch some live TV or pre-recorded TV show.

So let’s find out how you can watch Atresplayer outside Spain from anywhere in the world.

How to watch Atresplayer outside of Spain

When you visit the Atresplayer website outside of Spain rather than being able to view the shows you want to watch you’re hit with the following screen.

Atresplayer Blocked

It basically means the service isn’t available because of your geographical location, ie; you’re outside Spain.

The reason the website blocks you is because of your internet connection. Every internet connection is assigned something called an IP Address and from this the websites that you visit can determine your location.

When Atresplayer sees you’re outside Spain it blocks you.

The great news is there is a way to get yourself an IP Address from another country, in this case from Spain.

What you need is a service called a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that allows you to alter your IP Address to one from another country.

When using a VPN you can now appear in Spain and rather than be blocked from watching Atresplayer you’ll be able to stream all the content anywhere in the world.

Read below where I’ll let you know where you can get a VPN service to watch Atresplayer and how easy it is to use.

Where to get a VPN

VPN services are available from a wide range of companies. Their main purpose is to protect your online privacy and as many people are concerned about online privacy these days it means there is a wide variety of choice.

Not all VPN services are suitable to watch Atresplayer outside Spain but I’ve been investigating some of the best that are suitable to be able to help you.

The following three VPN services all work well with Atresplayer. All you need to do is click on one of their names to visit their website and sign-up.

  1. ExpressVPN – Recommended
  2. IPVanish
  3. NordVPN

Once you’ve visited one of the services above and signed up all you need to do is keep reading below where I’ll show you how to use the service to watch Atresplayer outside Spain.

How to use the VPN

Now that you’ve signed up you need to download the software or app for your device.

All three providers have software on their website for Windows and Mac but if you prefer to use on a mobile device like an Android or iOS tablet or phone then you can also download the apps from your app store.

Once downloaded and installed you’ll need to log in with the username and password that you either selected when you signed up or that was given to you.

Next choose their Spain server and press connect. Once it has connected any website that you visit will think you’re in Spain even though you’re not.

All that is left to do is visit the Atresplayer website and enjoy.

Below I’ve put together a step-by-step guide using my favourite provider ExpressVPN with a Windows PC so if you’re a little stuck then the below guide might help you out.


  1. Visit the ExpressVPN website and sign-up.
  2. Download the Windows software from the “Products” area of the website.
  3. Install and run the software.
  4. Press Choose Location, Select All, Select Europe and press Spain.
  5. Press Connect.

The software will now take care of connection which should only take around 15-30 seconds.

Once connected all you need to do is visit the Atresplayer website and you’ll be able to stream anything you want.
