Freeform, formerly known as ABC Family, is only available to US residents. This free Internet platform is used to stream TV shows on demand. It’s a great platform to have, but it is blocked in Canada. You can use either Smart DNS or a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to unblock and watch it. Smart DNS Proxy has a faster, but not fully secure connection, while VPNs have a secure but slower one. Both Smart DNS and VPN can bypass Freeform’s geographical restrictions.
Smart DNS Proxy is harder to implement as a method, but it can save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. Smart DNS works by redirecting geo-related traffic only, so that it is assumed Freeform is being used in the US. It can be implemented on a variety of devices, including Android, PC, Mac, PS3, PS4, Xbox, Apple TV, Smart TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and iOS devices. Your internet speed will be at its maximum if you use this service.
Keep in mind that some Internet service providers use DNS hijacking or transparent proxies, which might keep Smart DNS from functioning properly.
A VPN can be implemented to unblock content on Freeform. It changes your device’s IP address to make the servers believe you’re located in the US. The servers send you all the content you want when this is done successfully. You can also use a VPN to unblock content on sites like Showmax, Netflix, Stan, and DPlay. Just make sure you register for a quality VPN.
VPNs provide extra privacy and security while being connected because the networks encrypt all traffic. They can be implemented on Android, PC/Mac, Android, iPhone, Apple TV, iPad, Roku, Amazon Kindle, and Amazon Fire TV among other devices.
