How to watch Youtube Red if not available in your country
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 you’ll learn how you can watch YouTube Red in any country in the world even if when you visit it tells you it’s not available in your country.
YouTube Red is the premium subscription service from the popular video site YouTube.
There are no ads, you can continue to play videos in the background on your mobile and most importantly of all there is exclusive content such as Burn the Stage from BTS and more.
Unfortunately though YouTube Red is restricted to viewing from only a few countries. At the time of writing that’s the United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Mexico and South Korea.
Below we’ll show you in just 6 steps how you can watch YouTube Red in any country in the world.
How to watch Youtube Red
When you visit the YouTube Red website it’ll check to see what country you’re in. When it sees you’re not in one of the 6 countries that it’s officially available in then you’ll see a message like this:
We tried to access in Thailand but it’s also blocked in other countries like the UK, Canada and in fact the majority of countries worldwide.
To watch YouTube Red if it’s not available in your country you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app. A VPN app allows you to disguise your online location and appear somewhere else. In the case of watching YouTube Red, appear in one of the countries it is available.
A VPN will cost a couple of US Dollars per month and you can sign up for just 1 month or an entire year depending on how long you want to watch YouTube Red.
Follow the simple instructions below to get started.
How to watch YouTube Red Step-by-Step:
- Visit the VPN provider IPVanish by clicking here and sign-up. There’s a 7-day risk-free money back guarantee.
- Go the APPS area of the IPVanish website and download the correct app for your device.
- Install the app, run it and login with your account details.
- Select the United States or one of the other countries where YouTube Red IS available.
- Press Connect. Wait until the app connects.
- Visit the YouTube Red website and sign-up.
Now you’re connected to the IPVanish VPN the website thinks you’re in the United States (or one of the other countries where YouTube Red is available).
Instead of being blocked from signing up for YouTube Red you’re now able to sign up.
You can also take advantage of a free 1-month trial of YouTube Red so if you only want to watch a few specific things you won’t even need to pay for the YouTube Red service.
You can of course keep it for longer if you wish. You may need to enter a US Billing address and can use a site like FakeAddressGenerator. Just pop in your real card details to get a free trial or to sign up long term.
