Hotstar, CricketGateway, Yupp TV and Jio TV are Blocked in my region – How to unblock?
Due to copyright issues, broadcasting IPL online will be limited in many countries. For example, If you are from the US, Willow TV holds the right to broadcast IPL across the country. This means you will be blocked from accessing any of the online partners to watch the Live Streaming. Simply telling none of the online partners allow you to watch the game if your IP address is from United States.
So the possible way to bypass this restriction is to change your IP address using some VPN tools. We had already written an article about bypassing hotstar if it is blocked in your region.
Jio TV holds the right to broadcast IPL only in India. Also, it is mandatory to use a Jio network to stream the games and other Live TV events. Once you use a WiFi network or use Jio TV through other Internet Service Provider, You will be forced to use Jio Network. Otherwise, you won’t able to watch the games. You can try our modded Jio app for bypassing the issue.
CricketGateway has also restricted to stream the games in certain countries. For example, if you are from India, you cannot watch the game using cricketgateway. For that, you need to change your IP address using a VPN tool to a country where CricketGateway is authorized to stream the live action. Try IPVanish for changing your IP address.
Note that, you cannot watch the Live actions for free. You need to subscribe to the plans that these online broadcasters offer.
