Unblocking TenPlay outside Australia is pretty straight forward but require some patience. Unblocking the VoD service outside Australia was a headache for me the first time, took me over an hour to do so. But I finally got the trick! When you access the TenPlay service without VPN you will be welcomed by the following message:
To unblock the service, you will have to configure your VPN service manually on both PC & mobile devices. I configured PureVPN’s Australia server using the PPTP protocol, and voila instant TenPlay.
To configure your Tenplay VPN manually on Windows:
- Go to, Control Panel >Network & Sharing Center
- From the setup options listed select “Setup a new connection or Network”
- Next, choose “Connect to a Workplace”

- Fill in the two boxes with the Australia VPN server address and name your connection, then click next.
- Fill in your VPN username & Password, leave the Domain box empty and click Connect.
- Windows will now connect to the VPN server and will show in the task bar.
