TVer access

Is anyone here able to access TVer outside of Japan? I’m using international VPN.

I’m in Japan, so maybe I can’t help too much, but I have experience with getting my VPN to work for stuff in America.

Have you tried using (in addition to your VPN) something like Chrome’s dev tools (ctrl+shift+i) where you could set your location to Tokyo?

I used this to overcome issues with YoutubeTV.

I just tried this and was still having trouble. The VPN was also have trouble with other sites as well so it could be my end.

Edit: I just had updated a new location on the VPN so thats not the problem. When my wife was in Japan, even her ios device (from US) was not allowing TVer using Japanese sim card. I

yes, it works in japan and outside japan.

I don’t know about a vpn but if you have a PC you can use “DNS Jumper” and then just set it to one of the many free Tokyo dns that are available from https://public-dns.info/nameserver/jp.html

Didn’t work for me. Probably basing it off IP address.

Did you use it with a VPN? It doesn’t work on its own, only with the VPN also, when the VPN isn’t getting the right location.

Oh no. Thought you meant that could be an alternative, instead of a full VPN. Was skeptical it would work, but turns out I can’t read.

Thanks for the tips. I eventually found a usable VPN to for TVer that works well on my macbook. However they require an app only available in Japan to operate ios devices which I can’t find (I can run Japanese Netflix just fine). Again, even an international simcard didn’t circumnavigate access.
