Currently in Thailand or traveling there soon and want to access SVT Play in Thailand? In this quick guide, we’ll show you how to unblock SVT Play in Thailand, as well as any other Swedish service that you want to access, regardless of where you are in the world.
...Without this guide, you’ll have to deal with this...
For the same reason, almost all online streaming services out there, whether from Sweden or not, are not available in Thailand.
Due to rights to content.
SVT Play? It does have a large number of original content, but it doesn’t own all of it.
...Especially when it comes to anything sport-related.
And that’s an issue as far as streaming outside of Sweden.
It means that if SVT Play in Thailand is to be a thing, SVT would need to pay for the rights to show its content in Thailand.
...Something that, for many reasons, does not make any sense for SVT to do with most of SVT’s audience residing in Sweden.
And that’s the main reason for why you need to search for how to unblock SVT Play in Thailand.
In order to be able to watch SVT Play outside of Sweden, you need to fool SVT Play into thinking that you are in Sweden, while in fact, you are not.
To do that, you will need to change your location virtually.
SVT Play must think you are in Sweden.
How do you change your location virtually? With a VPN.
However, you need to use the RIGHT VPN.
That’s because connecting to any random Swedish server won’t automatically make SVT Play work. Platforms like SVT Play must make efforts against VPN services, as otherwise, they will get in trouble for showing people content in regions where they don’t have the rights to show it.
And this is where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on entertainment, meaning that instead of thousands of servers, it comes with hundreds of servers, but that those servers work with entertainment platforms you want to unblock.
...But you’ll find that out yourself when you sign up for a 7-day free trial. Simply provide an email address and a password, and you are in.
PrivateVPN? It’s also a Swedish service (but you are on an English blog), meaning that we know exactly what services you like to unblock, that are from Sweden, and around the world. And we unblock them.
Created an account?
Simply connect to our Swedish SVT Play server, and you are in.
And the great thing about SVT Play? That you don’t need an app to watch it, which is not the case with a lot of platforms.
...But you will face limitations when trying to watch SVT Play on a TV in Thailand so we will also show you how to do it.
Unfortunately, most TV platforms where it’s smart TVs or the likes of Apple TV, Chromecast, or even Roku simply don’t support VPN services, meaning that unless you connect your laptop to a TV via HDMI, you are low on options...
What do we recommend? The Amazon Fire TV Stick.
It’s the most versatile platform out there as it supports both Android apps, but also VPN services like PrivateVPN.
Want to take it up a level? Get a projector like the BENQ TK850 connected whether via HDMI to your laptop, or via the Fire TV Stick, and you will have the best possible big screen SVT Play experience in the world.
SVT Play, TV4 Play, or something like Hulu or DAZN...
PrivateVPN can unblock them all, although, with platforms like DAZN and Hulu, more efforts are required, as it’s not as simple as the right VPN, but we cover how to do it on a blog.
