FOX – American Since 1986

Why is such a channel only available to those residing in the United States? That’s a question a lot of you ask, and today, you’ll be finally getting the answer.

You see, each internet-connected device has a unique IP address ISPs assign to you when you sign up for their service and connect. These unique numbers inform websites/services about who is requesting what and where to send that information.

In fact, a device’s IP address shows a lot more than most of you know. IP addresses allow a channel/website to determine our location, our ISP, the very own browser type, and the device we’re operating.

With that said, just like any channel out there, FOX applies geo-blocks. It’s a technology that restricts user access based on their location, which is mainly due to copyright laws.

The service restricts its access to the United States. It determines where a user’s traffic is coming from by examining their IP address. If it’s not an American one, they’re not getting in. They’ll just receive an error message that looks like this:

Technically, there’s no way to manually change an IP address. However, you can temporarily hide and replace it using BulletVPN. How? The next section has every little detail.

A VPN Alternative – BulletVPN’s Smart DNS

Now this is a different approach, but the results are the same – give or take. BulletVPN’s Smart DNS is one of the ultimate ways to spoof your location and appear in a channel’s area of coverage.

What differs here is that it doesn’t change your IP address to do that. On the contrary, it only reroutes parts of your internet traffic in the process. Those that help websites determine your location.

Once that’s done, you’ll be able to watch FOX anywhere. Keep in mind that you’ll not be adding any extra layer of protection to your browsing activities. Smart DNS does not come with encryption, which leaves you exposed to cyber threats.

But as long as you’re visiting official websites and most importantly those with (HTTPS), you’ll be fine. Let’s talk about the benefits of Smart DNS.

So, it doesn’t change your IP address, which allows you to navigate between your local channels and restricted ones simultaneously. Finally, the best benefit you get is that the absence of encryption allows maximum speeds.

In other words, no matter what channel you’re trying to watch, BulletVPN’s Smart DNS can unblock with minimal speed loss. Both VPN and Smart DNS features are available in a single subscription, which is excellent in terms of option variety.
