How to unblock SyFy with ProtonVPN

The SyFy channel is a cable TV channel that specializes in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror shows and movies. It also has an online streaming service where you can watch some of its most popular shows and movies. It is the home of shows like Battlestar Galactica, The Magicians, Futurama, and Xena: Warrior Princess. All you need to do is sign in to their site through your account with your cable provider, and you can stream any of these shows and more on demand.

ProtonVPN users can securely and privately watch any of their favorite SyFy content no matter where they are!

But you are not limited to SyFy with ProtonVPN. You can also stream HBO Now, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video. See all the streaming services you can access with our streaming guide for new users.

How to watch SyFy with ProtonVPN

Connect to any Plus server located in the United States. Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them. On your Android TV (the app is currently in beta testing), connecting to United States 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.

Step 1:

Get a ProtonVPN Plus or Visionary subscription

If you already have a Plus or Visionary ProtonVPN account, you can skip to step 2.

If you’re a new user, sign up for ProtonVPN.

If you have a Free or Basic plan, upgrade your account by logging in and selecting Plus or Visionary from your account Dashboard.

Step 2:

Install our VPN app

If you have already installed our apps, you can skip to step 3.

You need to download the ProtonVPN app for your operating system. You can securely stream your favorite shows on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices or on the go with an Android device.

If you have an Android TV, you can join the beta testing program and install the app directly on your device. If you already have our app, you can skip to step 3.

Download the app for Linux, macOS, and Windows
Download our Android and Android TV app

Note: The ProtonVPN app for iOS does not officially support streaming at the moment. 

Step 3:

Register your TV provider with SyFy. 

To access all of SyFy shows, you’ll need to have an account with a participating US TV provider. If you live in the US and the SyFy channel is part of your subscription package from a participating TV provider, you’ll be able to access all of SyFy’s on-demand streaming content. (This is assuming your TV subscription is in good standing.)

You can also access SyFy if you have a Hulu + Live TV account. You can access Hulu with ProtonVPN as well.

A limited number of shows are available for free to users that do not have an account with a participating TV provider.

Step 4:

Start watching SyFy securely with ProtonVPN!

Connect to a Plus server in the US, log in to SyFy, then kick back and relax.

If you experience issues watching SyFy, please try the following:

– Restart the ProtonVPN app and start a new VPN connection
Clear your browser cache
– Use a different browser
– Use your browser’s Incognito or Private Mode
– Turn off any adblockers or similar plug-ins your browser might be using
– Restart your device
Clear your DNS cache

SyFy may not always work. If you have tried all possible options and are still having issues or if you have any questions, please contact our Support team.
