Above you can see the error message that many people will see if they try to watch a football match on RTVE, or maybe a TV series for kids, or some other content. The problem is that RTVE is only allowed to show the content to viewers located in Spain.

When you visit a website, they will always register your IP address, and sometimes use the information your IP address provides. Your IP address will show a website approximately where you are located. So, if RTVE discovers that you are located outside Spain, they will suddenly limit which content is available to you on the website. That is why the solution is to get a Spanish IP address.

The solution is to make RTVE believe that you are in Spain.

If your IP address is what is causing the problem, then the solution will be to change your IP address. And that is actually quite easy. I will now show you how to change your IP address and how you can secure your Internet connection at the same time. You need to use something called a VPN, which is a tool used by tens of millions of people daily as they use it to secure their data and privacy online.

Watch RTVE abroad – the easy way.

Follow these steps, and you will be ready to watch RTVE abroad in a few minutes from now.

The first thing you need is a VPN subscription to either NordVPN or PureVPN. You can read more about both these VPN providers below. Click the links to visit their website.


PureVPN is very good, and one of the cheapest VPN providers available. It is great for unblocking TV networks and streaming services, and it can also be used to watch BBC, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix (in a couple of countries) and so much more online. They have a full refund policy, so if you do not like it, you can ask for a refund for some weeks after you have purchased the subscription.


NordVPN is a very popular VPN and I can easily understand why. It is very easy to use, you can use one subscription on six devices simultaneously, they have a 30-day full refund policy, and it works with Netflix in five different countries, besides giving you access to RTVE outside Spain.

Download the VPN application of the VPN you have decided to use.
PureVPN and NordVPN have applications for Windows, Macintosh, iOS, Android, Fire TV, and more. Follow the instructions after you have purchased your subscription to download the application to the devices that you would like to use the VPN on.

I am connecting to a NordVPN server in Spain.

Run the application and connect to a server in Spain.
PureVPN has servers in more than 100 countries, while NordVPN has servers in 55 countries. You can connect to all of these and there are no bandwidth limitations with any of these VPN providers. But, if you want to watch RTVE outside Spain, then you have to connect to a server in Spain. It only takes a few seconds to connect to the server in Spain, and you can immediately see that your IP address has changed once the connection has been made.

Visit the RTVE website and watch whatever you want to watch.
You are now ready to watch RTVE. The channel is often broadcasting events such as the FIFA World Cup, the European Championship in football, the Summer Olympics, the Winter Olympics, and other big events. They are also fantastic for children’s content, for news, and for great TV series. Find the content that you are interested in, and enjoy watching RTVE elsewhere in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, in America, and in Oceania.

Do you see how easy it is to watch RTVE abroad? It takes no technical knowledge. All you need is to follow the instructions in this article, and you will be ready to stream all your favorite content on RTVE in a few minutes.

What else to do with the VPN?

A VPN is all about online security. When you activate your VPN connection, all your data will be encrypted online. This makes it harder for any hacker to spy on your activities and for anyone to hack your computer and steal your data. It is very useful when working from home, and it is also crucial when you use open WiFi networks in hotels, restaurants, and in other similar places.

You can use both NordVPN and PureVPN to unblock several other TV networks and streaming services as well, meaning that you can use both to watch content on RaiPlay in Italy, on SVTPlay in Sweden, to watch ZDF and DasErste in Germany, to watch BBC in the UK, and to watch content on other TV networks all around the world. Isn’t that cool?
