In this guide you’ll learn how you can watch Naver TV anywhere in the world. All it takes is a tiny app and 6 simple steps. It’s so easy in fact, even your mother could do it.
Naver TV is one of the biggest online streaming services in South Korea and with Korean culture fast influencing the world it’s the place to be to watch stuff before the rest of the world.
From Korean drama such as Ruby Ruby Love, Idol Fever and Three Color Fantasy through to Korean K-Pop music from the likes of BTS, GOT7 and Wanna One. Naver has it all.
If you’re a fan of Korean TV or music and you’ve tried to watch Naver TV already then you’ll know you’re blocked. The great news is there is a super easy way to watch Naver TV and below I’m going to show you how.
Watch Naver TV anywhere in the world
Naver TV is available to be watched in South Korea only. If you try and watch outside South Korea then you’ll either be hit with a big fat block message or videos won’t stream at all.
You’ll be happy to know you can watch Naver TV in any country with a simple app called a VPN. VPN apps are available for phones, tablets and regular computers and they’re mega easy to use.
A VPN works by letting you pretend you’re in South Korea. When you visit the Naver TV website it thinks you’re in South Korea when in reality you’re in Australia, the USA, UK or somewhere else in the world.
All you need to do is follow the easy 6-steps below and you’ll be watching Naver TV in just a few minutes.
How to watch Naver TV anywhere in the world:
- Visit the VPN provider NordVPN by clicking here and sign up to their service – There’s a massive 30-day money back guarantee so it’s risk-free.
- Once you’ve signed up go to the VPN Apps section of their website and download the correct app for your device. You can also search your regular app store for ‘NordVPN’ and download that way too.
- Install the app if you haven’t already and then open it. You’ll be prompted to enter your login details. These are the details you created when you signed up.
- On the world map locate and select South Korea (1.) and click on it. You can also click on ‘Countries’ and find South Korea in the list.
- The app should make automatic connection for you but if not just click the large connection button (2.).
- Once the app lets you know its connected simply head over to the Naver TV website by clicking here.
You can now watch as much Naver TV as you want. When you’ve finished watching simply press disconnect on the NordVPN app and everything will return to normal.
As your VPN is a subscription service it means you can reconnect and use it as much as you want. There are no limits on how much Naver TV you can watch and you can also use it to stream other Korean services like Melon or those from other countries.
If you think it’ll be too difficult take a look at our example below where I connected on an Android device.
As you can see in the example above I tried to play a video on Naver TV but was blocked because I wasn’t in South Korea.
Simply by opening the NordVPN app and connecting to South Korea I was able to go back to Naver TV and reload the same page and then be able to play the video that was previously blocked.
It really is that simple and it works on Windows and Mac computers and also Android and Apple tablets and phones. In fact, you can use the one service on up to 6 devices at the same time so you can go Naver TV overload across all of your devices.
What is Naver TV and how does a VPN help me watch
If you’re a Korean music or drama fan and you haven’t yet heard of Naver TV then you’re seriously missing out.
Naver TV is essentially the leading online streaming service for South Korean culture. The site has everything from shows, music, movies and more.
The downside is, Naver is restricted to South Korea only. If you’re a fan of Korean music or drama this can be a huge disappointment.
Luckily a VPN app as explained earlier in this article will help you watch Naver TV in any country. The first thing to understand is VPN apps are 100% legal so there’s no need to worry there.
Their purpose is to protect your online privacy and security and one of the features is by changing your online location so companies and others with nasty intentions can’t track you online.
In the case of watching Naver TV outside South Korea, a VPN allows you to pretend you are in South Korea so instead of being blocked you’re free to watch everything on the service.
Recap: Watch Naver TV anywhere in the world
You can watch Naver TV in any country in the world and all you’ll need is a VPN service.
I recommend NordVPN because they work well with Naver TV and I didn’t suffer any buffering when using them to stream either movies and drama or music videos.
Just click the button below to get yourself a VPN for Naver TV and then follow the 6 simple steps from earlier in this guide.
