How to watch French TV outside of France

MYTF1 allows you to watch all broadcasts provided by the French channels called TF1, HD1, TMC, and NT1. 220 million people speak French which makes the French audience pretty wide.

But what if you want to watch French TV while being in the US for instance? You can’t do it. Well, you can’t do it normally. But if you really want to want to watch French TV outside of France, you can.

Make France Think That You Are in France

The reason why you can’t watch French TV outside of France, or more specifically can’t use MYTF1 outside of France is that MYTF1 knows that you are outside of it. It knows your IP doesn’t come from France. You need to make your IP come from France.

The simplest method? Of course to visit France, and that would sure be fun too. But what if you don’t have time to visit France and need to watch something now? It’s simple. You go to France virtually.

How do you do that?

Use a Virtual Private Network

A virtual private network, also known as a VPN allows you be anywhere in the world without moving. You connect to a right server and automatically, you get access to content that you may not have been able to access prior.

A virtual private network allows you be anywhere that you desire, once you can connect to a server of the country you want to be in. PrivateVPN has servers in France, so when it comes to watching French TV outside of France, you are good to go. But it also has servers in many other countries. And that gives you many other possibilities.

If you use a VPN, you are also more secure. What you do is encrypted. The government and your network provider do not have access to what you are doing.

Setting PrivateVPN up

In order to use PrivateVPN, you need to register first.

  • To do that, go into PrivateVPN.com.
  • Press the Buy button.
  • Provide your details. These include your password, email, plan, and preferred payment method.

After that, search for PrivateVPN on your app store, or go to the Download section at the bottom of the PrivateVPN website and download the app that suits your device.
Install it.

After that, you simply need to open PrivateVPN and connect to a French server.


If you want to watch French TV outside of France, you can totally do so. You simply need a VPN. And you are not just limited to unblocking French TV outside of France. With a VPN, you can use Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and many more, regardless of where you are. Provided that the VPN company that you are using has enough servers.

And PrivateVPN has servers in 56 different locations. That means that you will be able to access just about any content that you desire.
