Laola1 TV is one of the best streaming websites in Germany and Austria and in this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch it from any country in the world.
The website has everything from Football to Basketball and Motorsports to Ice Hockey plus a whole host of other sports. Unfortunately though if you’re not in Germany or Austria and you try and visit the website you’re blocked from viewing.
Laola1 TV is intended for broadcast in Germany and Austria and they only have the rights to show events like the UEFA Champions League and others in those regions.
If you’re outside Germany or Austria then they block you. However, unblocking Laola1TV is extremely easy and below I’m going to show you the quickest way.
Watch Laola1 TV outside Germany
When you visit the Laola1 TV website outside Germany and you try to access certain videos you’re blocked from watching. Often this occurs more on the Live content, although it does happen on regular recorded videos too.
On top of that, it’s not just what you’re able to watch that differs but also the different amount of content. Take a look at the screenshot below that shows the content from the German website (on the left) and the content when you visit outside Germany (on the right).
So, how can you get access to this extra content and watch Laola1 TV outside Germany to its maximum potential?
For this you’ll need to get yourself an app called a VPN (Virtual Private Network). A VPN works by disguising your location and allows you to make it look like you’re somewhere else.
Let’s say for example you’re in the United States, you can use the VPN app to pretend you’re actually in Germany allowing you to access.
But how can you do this? Read below to find out how.
How to watch Laola1 TV outside Germany
First you need to choose a VPN provider. There are hundreds out there so it can be confusing if you search Google. Not all are suitable for Laola1 TV either because they don’t offer German connections.
Below are my three top VPN app recommendations for watching Laola1 TV outside Germany. I usually opt for IPVanish because they’re a bit easier to use than the others and work well.
Once you’ve chosen one of the three VPN providers above that work with Laola1 TV just follow the 4 simple steps below.
- Visit your chosen VPN provider, for example, IPVanish by clicking here and sign-up for their service. They offer a completely risk-free 7-day money back guarantee to give you plenty of time to test it.
- Once you’ve signed up go to the ‘Apps‘ section of their website and download the correct app for your device. All major devices such as Windows PC, Mac, Android and Apple iOS are supported.
- When you’ve downloaded the app and installed it you should open it. Then login with the account details you created or were supplied when you signed up.
- Now choose Germany (1.) from the country selection list or map and press Connect (2.).
It doesn’t take long for any of the apps to get you connected and should let you know in under 30 seconds that it’s connected.
Any website you visit now will think you’re in Germany rather than the country you’re actually in.
You should now visit the Laola1.tv website where you’ll be able to access the entire German catalogue of TV shows, sports and other media.
You may need to clear your history or visit in InPrivate or Incognito mode if you’ve previously visited without using a VPN.
Below you can see an example screenshot of the easy steps to connect to Germany using IPVanish.
How does a VPN work and is it legal?
You’re probably wondering what a VPN is and if it is even legal.
The good news is, VPN services are 100% legal in nearly every country in the world. Only in a few repressive countries are they illegal.
A VPN works by tunnelling your connection via a third party location owned by the VPN company. On your device when you request to visit the Laola1 TV website it first passes that request to the VPN company’s server in Germany. The server then sends this request onto Laola1 TV.
Laola1 TV feed back the site or video you requested to watch to the VPN company’s server in Germany who then pass it onto you.
The VPN acts like a middle-man between you and Laola1 TV throwing a cloak of anonymity over you. Laola1 TV only ever sees the Germany VPN server accessing the site and doesn’t know that you’re really the end user.
Recap How to watch Laola1 TV outside Germany
If you want to get full access to Laola1 TV and access the full catalogue of shows and live streams then you need a VPN. A VPN app allows you to tap into the content intended only for Germany and Austria.
There are hundreds of VPN companies out there but not all support Germany connections. I recommend IPVanish which you can get by clicking the button below but I’ve recommended a couple of other choices earlier in this article if you want to shop around.
Once you’ve got the VPN service connect to their German connection point and then head over to the Laola1 TV website. You’ll now be able to watch any blocked videos or live streams and access a huge amount of extra content.
