Is it possible to watch YLE outside Finland? Are all VPNs blocked by YLE?

Do you understand the Finnish language? It is one of the hardest in the world, which means that you have got to be very smart. But, are you still looking for a way to watch YLE outside Finland? Is it even possible? Have you read that a VPN can help you watch YLE abroad? It is true, but only in part.

You can use a VPN to get a Finnish IP address, and that is really true. But, YLE is keeping track of most of the VPN providers and they register all the IP addresses used by those VPN providers. When a visitor comes to the YLE website using such an IP address, they will show them an error message telling them that the content is blocked.

Imagine that you are having a house party! You know, by experience, that there is a group of guests who would like to be at the party (that you don’t want to be there), and that they always dress up like goats, cows, and pigs. What do you do? When you see someone arriving looking like a goat, a pig, or a cow, you just tell them that the party isn’t for them! That is what YLE will do if you use a VPN service that they don’t like either.

A VPN is a tool used by many to encrypt their data online and to hide their online activities. This isn’t for illegal activities only, but it is used by normal workers and employees as they protect information and data online. It isn’t a coincidence that the number of VPN users increased a lot during the COVID-19 pandemic with millions of people doing their work from home.

So, how can I watch YLE abroad? Is it possible?

So far, I have only explained why it is hard to watch YLE outside Finland. But, is it possible? Yes, it is! Maybe you want to watch a football match on YLE, or maybe you want to watch some other content? No matter why you want to watch YLE abroad, this is the solution.
