SonyLIV is a South Asian general entertainment, video-on-demand service available in India, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Bahrain. SonyLIV is a part of the network of television channels owned by Sony Pictures Networks India Pvt. Ltd. in India. The network owns 31 channels including Sony Entertainment Television (SET), one of India’s most popular Hindi entertainment channels. The other channels include: Sony TV, Sony SAB, Sony Ten, Sony Max, Sony Max 2, Sony Six, Sony Pix, and Sony Yay (formerly Animax Asia). SonyLIV also has a particularly strong sports channel offer with 11 channels, such as Sony SIX, Sony ESPN, Sony TEN1, Sony TEN2 and Sony TEN3.
The platform has access to 18 years of content from channels that are part of the Sony Entertainment Network. This means more than 700 movies and 40,000+ hours of television shows in Hindi, English and Tamil. It also offers original web series like Lovebytes, Married Women Diaries, JL50, etc. In June 2020, SonyLIV launched as a streaming service in the United States on Sling TV, with all the shows available in India available on the app. The key programming genres of SonyLIV include comedy, crime, drama, horror, action, sports and Live TV.
Much as comprehensive and entertaining the service is, it belongs to those which have geographical restrictions imposed on them. What it actually means is that it cannot be accessed from anywhere outside its normal operating area. Any attempt to stream its content from an ineligible area, even if you have an active subscription with the service, will end up in a message that the content is not available for your location.
Watch SonyLIV from anywhere with Getflix Smart DNS
Smart DNS technology is named like this for a reason. The ‘smart’ part of the solution redirects the part of your traffic which is responsible for revealing your location through a special server which shades your real IP thus preventing from its being blocked. The IP itself does not change so you can still enjoy your local websites. It does not have any impact on your connection speed either.
The first thing that you need to do is sign up with Getflix for a 14-fay free trial and register your IP in our system. It is quick, easy, and is not connected with any long-term attachments. Then, you have to configure the device of your choice for Smart DNS. Again, the setup process is quite straightforward and does not require any special skills or extra software of hardware expenses. The solution is available for many operating systems and devices.
How to stream SonyLIV channels with Smart VPN
An alternative solution to Smart DNS is Smart VPN. This technology is based on VPN (Virtual Private Network) which creates a “tunnel” directly to a special server located in the country of destination. Your IP is changed and the entire traffic is redirected to this server and encrypted on the way. It is available to all our regular subscribers.
All those mechanisms allow you not only to access geo-restricted services like SonyLIV but also protect your connection from anyone outside. If you need to use open Wi-Fi networks to access your banking app or send an important attachment over your business or private email account – Smart VPN protects your connection, your passwords or your files from being compromised.
Join Getflix and stream SonyLIV wherever you are and enjoy online security and anonymity.
