Do you need to access a Polish only TV site? Where I live in the UK there’s a large Polish community, which was established in the second world war. Consequently I have lots of Polish friends and acquaintances, who live nearby. Wherever you go you’ll see specialized satellite dishes on houses which people use to access TV stations in Poland. However most of these stations are also available online also. Unfortunately there is a problem, just like the majority of media sites – most stations are only accessible online when you’re in the same country. So if you try and access TVN Player, a popular Polish TV station over the internet you’ll get blocked.
Using a Polish Proxy Server
Anyway it’s quite simple to circumvent this problem if you have the right tools! Here’s a video showing the process of bypassing TVN Player’s blocks by using a Polish proxy server.
What happens is that instead of the website seeing a British IP address when you use a Poland proxy server then you will have a Polish IP address instead. When you switch off the application you’ll revert to the UK (or whichever country you’re connecting from)
There’s much more to this tool, simply because it offers much more than access to a single Polish proxy site. There are servers located all over the world so you can use any of these wherever you are, it opens up a lot more than just TVN player or the other major Polish sites. You can use it to access lots of US only content, plus when travelling switch to a UK server to access the BBC and other UK TV channels.
As you can see it only takes seconds to switch your location using Identity Cloaker, which effectively frees up the internet from filters, blocks and restrictions. If you do use it, remember to turn on the encryption when using any unknown connection such as a hotel, airport or cafe wireless connection. It’s especially important when connecting to important sites like banking,paypal and webmail for example.
The servers are very fast and use a compression algorithm so it’s unlikely you’ll see much of a performance impact. If you do, try turning off the encryption as it does add a slight overhead and it’s not that important when you’re streaming video for security.
