Thank you for the question. We have already answered this question in another blog post available, though that question dealt with the question how to get a Norwegian IP address. The reality is that the reason why you can not watch NRK from abroad is that the live stream is locked to people with a Norwegian IP address, thus the solution to the problem is to get a Norwegian IP address, and then the live stream will be available to you at once.

If you try to watch NRK live stream from abroad without a Norwegian IP address you will get the following error message: (this is the Norwegian language version)

How to get a Norwegian IP address?

We have used this service lots of times ourselves, and not only to get a Norwegian IP address making it possible for us to watch NRK live online, but we have also used it to see German TV online, Hungarian TV online and lots of other broadcasts which are normally limited to people with local IP addresses. In addition it is given you an encrypted connection making you and your information safe and protected on the net. This is especially important when using open WiFi networks all around the world without any form of encryption.

Enjoy your protected web surfing and enjoy the broadcasts of NRK online.

Ps: If you first get a subscription with HideMyAss, do not forget that you can use this in the same way to see other nations TV channels live on the net. Thus you can for example watch the British X Factor or Champions League matches live on ITV online on the web, or watch Italian Rai or similar channels normally locked with a geo block. Enjoy!

How to get a Norwegian IP address?

I am currently living outside Norway, but I am in need of a Norwegian IP address. Are there any ways in which I can arrange this easily?

There are many ways in which you can arrange this, some harder and some easier. The solution to the problem is in most situations a so called VPN, or a Virtual Private Network. Instead of describing this in detail we can warmly recommend a service offering you the service of a VPN. This means that when you live in for example Spain and need a Norwegian IP address you start a program which creates a VPN to a Norwegian server, and thus you receive a Norwegian IP address and after that you can surf the net and it will look like you do it from Norway to different servers and whatever websites you visit.

The program and service we normally use to get a Norwegian IP address when surfing from abroad is HideMyAss. It has a monthly subscription fee, but it is a great investment as it also encrypts your surfing, making it safer, especially compared to using open WiFi networks at cafes and restaurants around the world. Just connect to the WiFi server there for free, then start the HideMyAss application, and in a few seconds you are protected and surf the web with a Norwegian IP address.
