How to watch Belarus 5 (TVR BY) outside Belarus

TVR BY is a state-owned television broadcasting platform that broadcasts six separate channels: Belarus 1, 2, 3, 5, 25, and NTV-Belarus. These stations are well-known for their portfolios of news, entertainment, and, most significantly, sporting events.

While anybody in Belarus may access these channels through the tvr.by platform, anyone outside of Belarus confronts geo-restriction issues, resulting in an inability to access both the tvr.by platform and the channels.

Such a problem might be aggravating, particularly if you are missing your favorite football matches from Belarus 5. But don’t worry! In this post, I’ll show you how to access to tvr.by and start watching any of the platform’s TV stations outside Belarus.


Analysis: Copyrights apply to all internet material. As a result, Belteleradiocompany, also known as tvr.by, has exclusive broadcasting rights for various events only for Belarus.

In other words, if you are not in Belarus, you cannot generally use the tvr.by portal.

Solution: At this moment, a VPN service with a Belarus server may come in helpful. When we use a VPN, we can easily change our local IP address to a Belarusian one and trick tvr.by thinking we are viewing the site from Belarus.

A quick guide to watching TVR BY channels anywhere in the world:

  1. Visit the VeePN website – it has several servers in Minsk, Belarus.
  2. Choose a plan suitable for your budget and enter your e-mail as well as personal information.
  3. Make the payment with a preferred payment method. (Make sure to choose PaymentWall if you have Russian bank cards.)
  4. Upon successful payment, you will receive your login credentials to your email address.
  5. Log in to the VeePN portal with your e-mail and password.
  6. Navigate to “Set up a new device”, download and install the VPN app compatible with your device.
  7. Launch the VeePN app, log in with the same credentials, go to locations, search for “Belarus” and connect to Minsk, Belarus server.

This will change your local IP address to the Belarusian one and help you watch Belarus 5 anywhere in the world.

A VPN service can help us be in Belarus virtually and start watching Belarus 5 anywhere in the world.

Some of us may be wondering why we need a VPN service. Allow me to walk you through the process to make things clearer. This way, we will understand both the need and the significance of VPN services.

Understanding TVR BY geo-restriction

Let’s take a look at the Belarus 5 situation…

Belarus 5 is one of the few television channels that broadcasts a variety of sporting events for free. Belarus 5 is a Russian-language television channel that allows viewers in other Russian-speaking nations to watch the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, and EUFA Europe League for free.

However, if you attempt to access the channel through the official www.tvr.by/eng/televidenie/belarus-5/link, you will get the two problems shown below.

Belarus TVR BY geo-restriction issue when you try to access the platform outside Belarus.

Even if you are able to unlock the website, the “Play” button will just spin and it will not allow you to stream the channel.

Even if you access the website, you cannot play the video.

Both of these concerns arise as a consequence of copyright agreements. Belarus can only broadcast these stations inside its borders, much as Match TV is only available in Russia, Megogo in Ukraine, and Setanta in Georgia/Moldova.

Normally, our physical location is the primary issue here. However, geo-restriction only applies to our virtual addresses, not our physical locations, and we will handle this issue via a VPN service.

How to watch Belarus 5 with a VPN

We discovered the problem. It is now time to explore the VPN’s possibilities.

A VPN service encrypts and routes our web traffic via a server. VPN assigns us the IP address of the connected server during encryption. Specifically, if we decide to encrypt our internet using a server hosted in a data center in Belarus, we will be assigned a Belarusian IP address.

This will allow us to virtually be in Belarus and access tvr.by channels as if we were locals. As easy as that!

Choosing the right VPN service

I have to confess that finding VPN providers with Belarusian servers was one of the more difficult parts of this post. Because of Belarus’s strong monopoly on internet infrastructure, VPN businesses attempt to circumvent both national and government constraints.

Nonetheless, some daring VPN companies have managed to install dedicated servers in Beltelekom datacenters through third-party hosting providers. We’ll be utilizing VeePN in this lesson…

  • Visit VeePN’s official website
  • Choose a VPN plan suitable to your budget
  • Enter your personal details and finalize the payment (If you have Russian bank-issued cards, make sure to use PaymentWall payment options.

Upon completing these steps, VeePN will send you the login details to your e-mail address.

VPN app installation

Do you have your user name and password?

Great! Let’s log in to the VeePN portal and download the VPN app. To do so…

  • Navigate to VeePN again.
  • Click the “Sign In” button on the right top corner.
  • Enter your credentials and hit the “Log in” button.

You will be welcomed with the overview page. This page contains downloadable VPN apps.

Download one of the available VPN app compatible with your device.

Download the VPN app compatible with your device and follow the installation instructions. During this process, make sure to give the required permissions to the VPN software.

Connecting to the Belarus server

Once you have completed the steps above, the VPN app should be ready to use. With a few more steps, we will have access to the TVR BY channels. Hold on!

  • Launch the VPN app and log in with the same credentials.
  • Navigate to “Locations” by clicking the flag sign on the left.
  • Type “Belarus” to the search bar and connect to one of the available Belarus servers.

VeePN will grant us a Belarusian IP address.

When the button turns green, it means you are successfully connected to the Belarus server and now you have a Belarusian IP address.

Accessing TVR BY (Belarus 1, 2, 3, 5) channels

We are now officially and virtually located in Belarus with a Belarusian IP address. This will not only bypass tvr.by geo-restriction but also get us access to the ivi.ru (by), mts (by) versions as well.

As for the final steps…

  • Visit https://www.tvr.by/ official website
  • Choose one of the channels of your choice and start streaming!

Summing up the article

It is simple to circumvent a geo-restriction using a VPN. However, when it comes to Belarus channels, we run into a number of complications.

To begin with, it is hard to find a VPN with a Belarus server. Even if we found a VPN service, we may not be able to circumvent the TVR By VPN embargo.

With all of these issues in mind, I conducted significant research and discovered VeePN, a VPN provider that works well with TVR BY channels.

Using this service, you can easily change your IP address to a Belarusian one and begin streaming your favorite Belarusian channels. Never miss out on your favorite programs or football events from Belarus 5.
