Why you can’t watch 3Player and TV3 live streaming outside Ireland?

It’s important to start by saying that not every show on 3Player is blocked outside of Ireland. Some shows are available worldwide from TV3.  Based on your IP address TV3 will determine which TV shows they can and cannot let you watch. However the most popular such as Red Rock, Xposé and The X Factor are restricted to viewing for Irish domestic use.


Sports fans with an Irish internet service can watch UEFA Champions League Live and Rugby World Cup matches.

So how do you watch 3player from anywhere?
  • Get an Irish IP address.
  • Just want to watch on your PC, Mac or iPad? Get an Irish Proxy or VPN from Liberty Shield from only £6.99 per month.
  • Prefer to watch on supported media streaming devices? 3player content is available on Samsung or Sony Smart TVs. Plus Xbox 360 or Xbox One games consoles. You’ll need an Irish configured VPN Router setup for Ireland for only £12.99 with Worldwide Shipping.
