Fixing the 'Tubi TV is not available in the EU' error.....
The way to bypass this error, is by changing your IP address to appear in another country - some call this 'Location Spoofing'.
The easiest way to do this on Windows, Android, Mac, iOS or Firestick is by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Using a VPN will change your IP address to make your connection appear to be from another country (which you choose yourself). The VPN will also encrypt your connection and make it more secure, which means your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will no longer be able to monitor or track your streaming activity.
ISP's are able to monitor what movies and shows you stream online, so most streamers will always ensure they connect to a VPN when using streaming apps, to prevent unwanted visits, fines, or warnings..
There are MANY advantages of using a VPN - check out our VPN post which explains more!
There are 2 types of VPNs ; a Free VPN, and a paid VPN.
What is the best FREE VPN for Tubi TV or other streaming apps?
First, I would urge you NOT to use just ANY free VPN from the app store.
Many FREE VPN's will collect and sell your data, sell and share your bandwidth and dramatically slow down your internet connection.
if you are using a FREE VPN from the app store, I recommend checking the T+C's as it is VERY likely, your data or bandwidth is being shared.
If you do not want to pay for a VPN (which I recommend paying for one) then you will want to use a trusted, well known and secure free VPN from one of the big names, such as ProtonVPN.
They offer one of the fastest and more secure Free VPNs available - but we recommend upgrading to the basic for $5 a month by switching the tab at the Top to Monthly from Annually.
ProtonVPN are the same people who make ProtonMail - a free and secure email service which is used by millions to encrypt and secure their communications for free!
What is the best paid VPN for Tubi TV or other streaming apps?
We always recommend a premium VPN, simply because they are the most secure, the fatest, and do not log ANY data on your connection at all!
The best paid VPN as voted for by users is IP Vanish.
IP Vanish own their own servers which means they are the fastest VPN for streaming. You will not loose much of your speed when using IP Vanish so you will get fast speeds for streaming, and works best for HD or 4K streaming.
[blockquote]IPVanish currently have an offer for 73% off their service, which works out at just $3.25 a month with coupon code CYBERDEAL19[/blockquote]
You can claim this offer by using THIS LINK and the promo code above!
This offer ends the 2nd December 2019.
Fixing the Tubi TV app for EU users in summary
After purchasing a VPN, you can use the app to change your location by selecting a US server.
When connected to a US server, your location will be based in America, which means you will no longer see the 'Tubi TV is not available in the EU' error message.
This will also work with other apps, and will also increase the amount of content you will see on Netflix by geo unlocking more content.
