Want to watch DAZN Japan outside of Japan but found that DAZN tells you are not in the available region or otherwise switches you to a different region resulting in you not being able to watch the likes of J1, J2, J3, Formula 1, or LFCTV?
...In this DAZN Japan guide, we’ll show you how to unblock DAZN in Japan so that you can unblock both Japanese and non-Japanse content that is available on DAZN Japan, regardless of where you are in the world, and regardless of whether you have a DAZN account already, or not.
...But before we talk over how to do it, let’s talk about why DAZN Japan isn’t currently available worldwide.
Quite simply, it goes down to rights. Or rather the lack of rights to the content.
DAZN Japan has content that’s shown around the world.
Formula 1 is a great example of that.
...If DAZN Japan allows you to watch DAZN Japan outside of Japan and thus shows you Formula 1 in a region where a different platform paid for the rights to show it, it can get in trouble.
...Result? No DAZN Japan outside of Japan.
Of course, you might be wondering why DAZN doesn’t just get rights to show content everywhere, and well, the answer is simple. It’s too expensive. And sometimes simply not possible due to deals already in place.
This depends entirely on your current location.
If DAZN is already in your region, but you are just looking to unblock DAZN Japan, then you will only need to make DAZN think you are in Japan.
...But if DAZN is not currently available in your region at all, that’s where you will need to apply a few extra steps to create an account, as it’s not quite as simple as you might imagine.
To make DAZN think you are in Japan, you are going to need to travel to Japan, virtually.
For that, you will need to connect to a VPN.
That’s where the first issues arise.
...Most VPN services while being able to unblock American servers to watch the likes of American Netflix, fail at unblocking many other streaming regions such as Japan. Secondly, Japan is quite far away for many, and that can have an impact on live streaming.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service that focuses on quality rather than quantity, meaning fewer servers than that of the competition, but instead more servers that work with the likes of streaming services like DAZN.
What do you need to do?
...As far as tricking DAZN, that’s it.
...If you came here already having a DAZN account or with DAZN being available in your region, that is it for this guide. That’s all you need to do to watch DAZN Japan outside of Japan.
Otherwise, let’s go over how to create a DAZN Japan account.
Whether you create a DAZN US, DAZN Canada, or DAZN Japan account, it ultimately doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you have a DAZN account and are connected to a Japanese server.
But if you sign up for the US region, you will need a US card. If you sign up for the Canadian region, you will need a Canadian card.
...And so on.
That naturally makes it hard, but there is a solution for that issue.
To create a DAZN account via your phone, because if you do so, you will be dealing with Apple and Google, which handle payments on mobile devices, meaning no weird card blocks.
Catch? You need to change the region of your app store so that it’s in one of the DAZN regions.
We’ll go over how to do it now.⬇️
This is a little bit more complicated because most smart TVs and Smart TV platforms don’t support VPN services.
What are the solutions?
Amazon Fire TV Stick is one of the only platforms that support VPN services and is the most comfortable way to watch DAZN.
...But you will first need to change the region of your account to download the DAZN app.
If you just ordered a Fire TV, simply sign up for an account in a location that supports DAZN.
But if you already have an Amazon Fire TV Stick and don’t have a Japan account, then:
...But that’s also how to watch just about all streaming services out there.
