How can you watch Thai TV shows or movie dramas online?
If you’re not currently within Thailand, you might have some difficulties accessing local Thai TV streams. Yes, you guessed, they’re geo-restricted, so the obvious course of action is bypass this limitation.
As we’ve explained above, one of the best ways to circumvent geo-restrictions is through a VPN. However, you must know that not all VPNs can successfully hide your location, so you won’t be able to watch Thai TV content with just about any VPN.
Your VPN isn’t hiding your location? Check out our guide and see how you can fix it.
For instance, free VPNs are somewhat known for leakind some of your data, which subsequently means your location becomes briefly visible. This is more than enough for streaming services to block your attempts at accessing them.
Second of all, you must make sure that your VPN has servers in Thailand specifically. Any neighboring countries or regions might not let you access Thai content to your leisure. Check out our best VPNs with Thailand servers if you don’t know where to start looking.
- Purchase a premium VPN subscription (we recommend NordVPN)
- Install the VPN on your device
- Launch the VPN client and connect to your account
- Connect to a Thailand server
- Launch your favorite streaming service
- Search for the content you want to watch
- Enjoy Thai TV from outside of Thailand
NordVPN is a great all-round VPN service from Tefincom & Co., S.A. that has a lot of great privacy/security features, aside from its Thailand-based servers.
Furthermore, at the time being, NordVPN offers not one, but 7 different Thai-based servers, so you quickly switch to a different one in case your current server isn’t working.
Looking for a great VPN service with Thailand-based servers? NordVPN is here to impress you.
Many VPN services have more than just one server in given countries. Therefore, if you notice that the Thai server you selected doesn’t work, just switch to another one and try again.
2. Smart DNS
A Smart DNS service acts somewhat like a VPN, but without the privacy/security features. Basically, a Smart DNS will change your ISP-assigned DNS with a new, private one, while also redirecting every request that could give away your real location.
As a result, websites and online services will think you’re in a different country (based on the assigned DNS) and allow you to access geo-restricted services.
Furthermore, Smart DNS services don’t encrypt traffic, which makes them much faster than any regular VPN. On the other hand, lack of encryption and IP spoofing means that your identity and traffic aren’t protected at all.
However, when choosing a Smart DNS service, you must make sure it has Thailand servers. Otherwise, you won’t be able to bypass Thai geo-restrictions effectively.
Final thoughts on watching Thai TV online
All things considered, there are many ways you can enjoy Thai TV online without actually going to Thailand, and most of them involve using anonymization or location spoofing services such as VPNs or Smart DNS.
However, note that not all VPNs or Smart DNS services can bypass Thai geo-restrictions, especially those which don’t offer Thai-based servers.
