Radiotelevisione italiana, or RAI, is the national public broadcasting company of Italy. It also has a free streaming and video-on-demand service, RaiPlay, that you can use to watch classics like Il Commissario Montalbano or Tutto Può Succedere.
ProtonVPN users can watch all their favorite shows on RAI no matter where they are!
How to watch RAI with ProtonVPN
Connect to any Plus server located in Italy. Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them in our macOS and Windows apps. They can be found in the “Plus servers” list on our Android and iOS apps.
On your Android TV (currently in beta), connecting to Italy will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.
Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.
ProtonVPN does not condone the use of our VPN service to bypass copyright regulations.
