7Plus is easily one of the most popular streaming services in Australia.
But if you're trying to stream it outside Oz, in the UK, for example, then you'll already know it's blocked.
In this guide I'll be showing you how you can turn that frown upside down and get watching where you are.
7Plus acts as a video on demand, catch-up TV service, and the Australia's Seven Network runs it.
It has been around only for a few years now, but in that short time, it gained the attention of Australians, as well as of the rest of the world, simply due to its rich content and quality of streaming.
So, if you want to get your eyes on all that good stuff, keep scrolling down to learn how to get watching where you are.
What you need to view 7Plus
As always when the problem lies with geo-restrictions, the answer to this problem, is to use a VPN app.
You may have heard of these because they've become trendy in recent years – but if you haven't, don't panic.
VPNs are online privacy and security apps that can also provide some anonymity. They can also ensure that you are safe while browsing the internet.
More than that, however, they can also let you access content from other countries – in this case, Australia.
This is possible due to their network of servers, which feature in locations all around the world.
By connecting to one of them, you replace your IP address (which websites use to learn where you are located) with another, belonging to the server and its location.
The best VPNs for this kind of job are:
They are all fast, which is ideal for streaming, with massive server networks, affordable prices, long money-back guarantees, and more.
I recommend using ExpressVPN, but you're free to choose.

How to unblock Channel 7 with a VPN
If you have no experience with a VPN and all this talk of ‘servers' and ‘IP addresses' is confusing to you, don't be intimidated.
You do not need to know how VPN works to use it.
Meanwhile, getting it and using it is extremely simple, and all you need to do is follow these few steps:
1. Sign up
The first thing to do is to pick a VPN service, go to its website, and sign up.
I recommend using ExpressVPN, but you can pick any of the three above, they all work well.
There are no long forms to fill, enter your email, your payment details, and pick a payment plan (monthly, yearly, whatever suits your needs).
2. Set up the app
The next step is to download the app for the device you wish to watch 7Plus on.
All of the mentioned services support multiple systems and devices. Download it, install it, launch it, and log in.
You can get it directly from the ExpressVPN website in their ‘Products' section or search for it in your usual app store.
Next, open the app and login with the account details you created in step 1. Depending on the device you're using you may need to use an ‘Activation Code' which you can find in the My Account area of the ExpressVPN website.
Then click on ‘Selected Location‘ and press ‘All Locations‘, ‘Asia Pacific‘ and then click on ‘Australia‘.
Finally, go to 7Plus and watch whatever you wish to watch. It is that simple.

What can I watch?
7Plus is rich with content, as mentioned, but you probably already know this.
There are some instant classics like Smallville, How I Met Your Mother or even Family Guy.
There are popular movies, such as the latest Terminator, and you can even watch some of the shows popular worldwide, including Doctor Who.
You can also stream plenty of dedicated Aussie content such as My Kitchen Rules, Home and Away, Sydney Weekender and a whole host more.
What else can I use the VPN for?
Don't think that the VPN is only useful for unblocking 7Plus.
If you want to watch Australia TV, then you're well covered and can access other services like Stan, Australian Netflix, SBS and any other online streaming service.
However, there's also plenty of other uses too.
As mentioned, it is an excellent way to ensure your online privacy. With its security and privacy features, all of your online traffic will be hidden from view and encrypted, so no one can see what you do online.
Next, you can use public Wi-Fi hotspots – which can be dangerous because anyone can be connected to them at the same time as yourself. A VPN allows you to stay secure online wherever you connect.
Australian 7Plus is a popular streaming service, and once you spend some time going through its content, you will quickly learn why that is the case.
If you're in the UK though, you'll be blocked from accessing.
To avoid this and get streaming, you'll need a VPN app. I recommend ExpressVPN.
Sign up for their service, download their app and connect to Australia. Then enjoy getting your fill of TV from ‘Straya in the windy old UK.
