Entertainment How to watch HKTV in Canada VPN - 香港電視

    HKTV Network (香港電視) is launching on November 19, 2014 on TVB's anniversary.

    Ways to watch HKTV
    1. SmartTV app manufactured 2012 and later
    2. Website via browser: (Chinese) (Partial English)
    3. Android TV Box
    4. iOS and Android apps on your smartphones and tablets

    How to access HKTV in Canada or overseas (internationally)
    Best option in terms of speed and reliability would be to obtain a Hong Kong IP address via VPN or VPN tunnel:
    • PureVPN - As low as $4.16/month; supports HK server
    • Unblock-US - Free trial but may not support HK IP; this is one of the better VPN services for watching US content
    Browser extensions, some of which are free but not guaranteed to work. May be very slow especially if you are overseas and far from HK.

    PureVPN works for watching HKTV in Malaysia for now but in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore, they will show it on TV via distributors like Astro so you do not need VPN unless you want to watch the shows on demand.

    I do not know if United States and Canada have similar arrangement for HKTV.

    Does anyone know if Unblock-US does indeed have Hong Kong IP addresses?

    I'm using ZenMate and it says my IP is from Hong Kong. I can't find the streams though? Can't read chinese :( :(. How do I watch episodes?

    They changed their link, I've updated my original post to reflect this. The correct link to watch the live stream is: https://www.hktvmall.com.

    Here is their partially English page: https://www.hktvmall.com/hktv/en/

    Also, Hola doesn't work. ZenMate works but will freeze and buffer a lot.

    ughh... zenvpn is just as bad as zenmate! don't bother. can someone confirm if purevpn works well in CANADA? i don't want to spend money just to find out that it's too slow. soo sick of tvb and fairchild, let me watch hktv please!

    after a lot of frustration i figured out how to get hktv working reasonably well for FREE. this only works for video on demand (VOD) it does not work for the "Watch Live Channel" stream.

    here is what you do:
    1. turn on zenmate
    2. go to https://www.hktvmall.com/hktv/en/
    2. click on VOD above the video player
    3. choose what episode clip you want to watch
    4. load the video
    5. when it starts to play (after the ads), TURN OFF ZENMATE
    6. the video will still work and will be lag free
    7. for the next clip, you have to turn on zenmate again and repeat steps 4 to 6.

    enjoy!! :up:

    The overseas HKTV GitHub is great. A bit laggy and jumps around occasionally but smoother than the other free options.

    The paid VPNs work fine for on demand content. Can't really expect the live feed to work in Canada without buffering, we're too far lol!

    I have some good vpn tools collection that i have found from somewhere online. In this list you can find many known vpn providers details which will allow you to access HKTV in any region.

    The most effective approach to enjoy with Canadian TV is using VPN service.

    No matter what’s your location on the planet, you can torrent without worrying about geo-restrictions. There are a couple of factors you need to consider before you choose your Canada VPN service. Many people hold the impression that if a VPN can unblock Netflix, Hulu and specially HKTV, it is the best service ever.
