Stan is a great service for all Aussies. The problem begins when they have to travel abroad or move outside Australia. The service is geo-restricted and its stream is limited only to the territory of Australia. If you want to access geo-located services, you need to use Smart DNS.
How to watch Stan outside Australia with Smart DNS
Smart DNS redirects your Internet traffic via a dedicated server which shades your original IP without changing it. Therefore, you can access both geo-located services and your local websites without any loss in the connection speed.
First, sign up with Getflix for a 14-day free trial and register your IP in our system. Next, configure your device for Smart DNS. It is really easy and does not require any special skills or additional software or expensive hardware. Just a few clicks of the mouse or taps in the screen and you’re ready to stream Stan.
You can also set up your home router if you would like to have access to all your home network devices. It may be a bit more complicated (but not very) but if you run into any kind of problems, you can always contact us for help or search for relevant information in our Knowledge Base.

There is another solution to gain access to geo-located services like Stan from outside Australia. If you would like to have an additional protection layer and access Stan, you can use Smart VPN.
Smart VPN is a solution which provides you with access to geo-restricted services and protects your connection by taking the entire traffic via a dedicated Australia-based server, changing your IP and encrypting the entire data on the way. You can access Stan from outside Australia and use a secure connection over unprotected networks which are available in public places like hotels, airports, cafes or shopping malls.
