Why is ITV Hub blocked
When you visit ITV Hub (formally ITV Player) outside the UK you’re blocked from watching.
The reason you’re blocked is because of something called your IP Address.
An IP Address is a little like a telephone number in that it gives away your location approximately, similar to the telephone area code.
Every internet connection is assigned an IP Address at the time of connection.
A VPN allows you to change your IP Address. In the case of watching the Smith vs Skogland fight, it allows you to change to one from the UK so you can access ITV Hub.
When you visit ITV Hub when using a VPN it thinks you’re in the UK even though in reality you could be in any country in the world.
Remember, all you need is a VPN service which you can get by clicking the button below after that just follow the instructions from earlier in this guide.
