Chris has a passion for helping you watch your favourite TV abroad. When he isn't helping you he can be found watching football, browsing Netflix or watching a good documentary.

In this guide I’ll show you just how easy it is to watch Sonyliv outside India in any country including the USA, Australia, UK or anywhere else. Best of all you can complete it in under 5 minutes and be watching Sonyliv globally.

Sonyliv is one of the best new streaming services to hit India. It has everything from shows and movies to sport. If you’re a big sports fan like me you can watch the Champions League football, Cricket, Tennis and a host of other sports.

You can also watch shows like Prithvi Vallabh, Family Time with Kapil Sharma, Porus, Ek Deewaana That and many more.

If you’re outside India though you’ll find the site blocked but in this guide I’ll show you the 6 simple steps to watching Sonyliv outside India from anywhere in the world.

Watch Sonyliv outside India

If you’ve tried to visit Sonyliv outside India then you’ll already know that most of the content is blocked. Rather than be able to stream your favourite shows or sports you’ll see a message like this:

Sonyliv blocked message

The content you are trying to watch is not available in your geography.

The reason you’re blocked is clear, you’re outside India and Sonyliv is only intended to be watched from inside India.

Near fear though, with a completely legal and easy to use app called a VPN (Virtual Private Network) you can unblock Sonyliv and watch all your favourite content in any country on the planet.

A VPN will cost you around US$5 – $10 depending on how long you sign up for which is approximately Rs.325 – Rs.650. It works by disguising your online location so the Sonyliv website thinks you’re in India even though you’re not.

Just follow the 6-steps below to get a VPN and use it to watch Sonyliv outside India. It’ll take less than 5 minutes of your time.

  1. Visit the VPN service NordVPN and sign-up to their service by clicking here. You can save 30% off a 1-year package by using the coupon code : VPNCOMP17
  2. Navigate to the VPN Apps section of their website and download the correct app for your device.
  3. Install the app for your device and run it. Then login with the account details you made when you signed up.
  4. Select India (1.) on the map.
  5. It should now automatically connect for you but if not press the large Connect (2.) power button.
  6. Once the app has connected which will take less than 30 seconds visit the Sonyliv website or launch the Sonyliv app.

Android / Apple:

NordVPN India Android

Windows / Mac:

NordVPN India

You can now watch as much Sonyliv content as you want as there are no limits on how long you can stay connected or how much you can watch.

When you’ve finished simply press Disconnect on the NordVPN app. You can reconnect as many times as you want and whenever you want as there are no restrictions on usage.

You can also use the same app to watch other Indian TV services like Hotstar and Voot at no additional cost.

How does a VPN work and is it legal?

VPN services are 100% legal in nearly every country in the world. Their purpose is to protect your online privacy to stop others from spying on what you’re doing online.

One of the features of them is the ability to change your online location.

Let’s say for example you’re in the United States. You try to watch Sonyliv but you’re blocked. A VPN allows you to make it look like you’re in India so Sonyliv no longer blocks you.

It does this by first sending your data to India and then on to the Sonyliv website. The Sonyliv website sees a request from India so doesn’t block you. The VPN service then sends back the data from India to you in the United States or wherever else you are in the world.

The result is, you can watch Sonyliv outside India anywhere on the planet.

Recap: Watch Sonyliv outside India

Watching Sonyliv outside India is much easier than you imagine.

To do this you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app. You can get our recommended one by clicking the orange button below.

You can use this on any type of device such as a Windows or Mac computer or even an Android or Apple tablet or phone. Simply install the VPN app, connect to India and then enjoy watching Sonyliv outside India in any country in the world.

    Ok… one issue with this article. While it works on browsers however it is not the case of app. Sonyliv app on Amazon Firestick will not let you login with India based credentials. In fact, I have a VPN installed on my firestock and all apps are launched on VPN however Sonyliv app doesn’t even show up when I try to add apps to be browsers with VPN. When I open it in browser even on firestixk with VPN it works but then it is pain to operate browser. Expect Sony Liv, all apps show up launching with VPN.

      Hi Hrishi,

      Do you have the SonyLiv app already installed on your Firestick? If not you first need to change the region of your Amazon account to India, then you can download the app, otherwise it won’t show. You then need to use the VPN to unblock the app.

      Let me know how you get on.
