How to Unblock Solarmovie in UK 2016 in more detail:
Living overseas, the thing that you miss most of all is family and friends. And because of that, when you do manage to get home, the time you spend with them is particularly precious.
I live abroad and a month or so ago I was back in the UK for just a few days. I arranged to meet up with my old group of mates one evening to catch up and chill out together. The plan was to meet for a few beers, then head back to my friend Ian’s place where we’d order a pizza and watch the latest Star Wars film.
We grew up together loving Star Wars, and although we had all seen it already, we still wanted to watch it together.
Pleasingly drunk and with too much pizza on its way, I tried to log into Solarmovie. For my money this is the best free online movie streaming site around and it’s how I watch pretty much everything when I am abroad.
To our intense annoyance, it turns out that Solarmovie is blocked in the UK. My mates feared that this meant our Star Wars plans were ruined but working in tech, I knew a simple way to get around the blockage. I logged into my VPN.
Why is Solarmovie not Available in the UK?
Solarmovie is a site which provides visitors with links to available streams of the most popular movies and TV shows. It doesn’t host the streams itself, but it also doesn’t point to the legitimate copyright holders of the content.
This is a bone of contention with some ISPs, and indeed Governments, who term such activity illegal and a breach of copyright. It is a highly debatable point, but regardless of where you stand on the issue, the fact remains that in the UK, accessing Solarmovie is no longer as straightforward as it once was.
Most ISPs have now blocked the site for their users and if you attempt to visit it, you will be greeted with a message telling you this site is not available.
How are UK ISPs Blocking Access to Solarmovie?
ISPs have the technical capabilities to block their users from connecting to any sites they deem illegal or inappropriate through their servers. In the UK, most ISPs use this power responsibly and only block illegal content such as child porn.
But in recent times, often under pressure from an increasingly authoritarian government, they have been blocking more and more content, and Solarmovie is just one of many streaming sites to fall victom to this.
Of course the reality s that anyone with an ounce of technical ability is able to bypass these blocks with ease. How? Using a VPN of course. Connecting to your VPN will allow you to circumvent any such blocks and access whatever content you like. And if you want to know how to do it with the best VPN around right now, ExpressVPN, just keep on reading.
How to Use a VPN to Watch Solarmovie in UK
Step 1: Sign up for VPN
So first of all, you need to sign up for a VPN. As I have already noted above, recommend ExpressVPN for this purpose, and you can visit their site by clicking through any of the links on this page.
Once there, you can select any of their subscription packages. They aren’t too expensive, and there is a free, guaranteed 30-day money-back guarantee if you are not totally satisfied.
Choose your package, and then follow the guidance to make your way through the payment process. After you have finished paying, you will be sent an email to authenticate your account. Click on the link you are sent and that’s it, you have signed up with ExpressVPN.
Step 2: Download & Install VPN
The next thing you need to download and install the software. Simply choose the correct operating system from the list below. (You can use ExpressVPN on almost any device.)
After selecting, all you have to do is follow the simple step-by-step instructions to download and install the software. It should only take a few moments.
Step 3: Connect to non-UK-based Server on VPN
Lastly all you need to do is connect to a server. There are dozens to choose from on ExpressVPN but of course make sure it is located somewhere outside the UK (and other countries which might also block Solarmovie).
Make your choice, and then wait just a few moments while ExpressVPN establishes a connection. And with that you are done.
You should now be able to go online and access Solarmovie as usual. It worked for me and I had one of the best nights of my life, with my best mates, a fantastic movie, and some distinctly mediocre pizza.
Do leave me any comments or questions in the box below. Feedback on these guides is always nice to receive.
