I can’t see Tver anymore even with VPN!!!!
I usually use VPN to watch Japanese TV shows like Tver and Paravi.
But one day, I couldn’t see Tver from overseas even with VPN….And in the middle of a lockdown.
Although for a time I despaired of One action completely restored it and we are still able to view it comfortably.
That certain action is, without a doubt, to contact the support chat of the VPN company (laughs).
There are a few other coping strategies that have also been effective, so I will introduce those as well.
Let’s get right to it. Let’s go over the actions I took when I couldn’t see Tver anymore and how to get it back, in the form of a testimonial!
I can’t see Tver anymore, even with a VPN!
I always watch Tver on my TV using Nord VPN and FireTV Stick.
However One day I suddenly couldn’t see Tver anymore.
I tried again and again, “Out of area error”. It says that the service is not available in your area.
I had heard rumors that Tver was no longer available on other VPNs, but I guess the day has finally come for Nord VPN…
It was the spring of 2021 and Germany was in the midst of a lockdown. At the time, the only thing I could look forward to was watching Japanese TV, and I was just in despair.
I couldn’t give up and tried to play it on my PC and smart phone, but no luck… I tried to play it on Pravi, Teletext, and other TV program sites, but no luck…
I guess I’ll just have to give up now…
Then I remembered that Nord VPN has a 24-hour inquiry desk.
You may be able to restore it on your own without resorting to the inquiry window.

Tver to be seen! Communication with Nord VPN support
I immediately accessed the site and opened a support chat.
Support is available in English OK. (Japanese support is not available.)
I can’t see the Japanese site Tver anymore…. I could see it until yesterday.
What terminal are you using?
OK, is this site called Tver correct? (link sent to you)
Yes! This is it!
The technical team is working on it now! It’s okay!
（Thanks. By the way, do you know when it will be fixed?
I don’t know exactly when, but don’t worry! No worries:)
OK, thanks. (Don’t worry about it!). (Don’t worry!) I guess you are confident to fix it if you say so clearly…. I have to believe that!)
In the meantime, I decided to believe and wait.
We had this chat around 9pm German time.
And. What a surprise, by mid-afternoon the next day, Tver was back!
Impressed with how fast Nord VPN works!
There was one subsequent time when I couldn’t see Tver, but even then it was restored in about a day or so.
Since I started using Nord VPN, those are the only two times I’ve had trouble viewing Tver, and the rest of the time I’ve had no problems at all!
5 things to do first when you can’t see Tver with VPN
If you are unable to view Tver from abroad, the “last resort” is to contact a VPN company.
But before we do that, there are a few things we would like you to try.
- Check if you are connected to a VPN
- Try disconnecting and reconnecting the VPN
- Try using a different device
- Delete the cache
- I’ll wait a day or two.
(1) Check if you are connected to a VPN
First, make sure you are connected to a VPN.
Often, when people think they are blocked by Tver, they are actually just disconnected from the VPN (laughs).
(2) Try disconnecting the VPN and reconnecting it.
Try disconnecting the VPN and reconnecting.
With Nord VPN, you can There are over 80 VPN servers in Japan, connecting you to a different server each time you connect.
Therefore, it is recommended that you change to a different server if you are not sure if The first server may not work, but changing to another server may allow you to see it.
I’ve had a couple of experiences where this worked out for me! Please give it a try.
(iii) Try using a different device
The phenomenon of not being able to see it on a smartphone but being able to see it on a PC happens rather often.
If you can no longer see Tver on your phone, check once to see if you can see it on your PC.
In the case of Netflix and Abemma, the phenomenon of not being able to watch only on your phone sometimes occurs.
Delete the cache
Finally, try deleting the cache!
When something goes wrong with a computer or smartphone, the usual means is to delete the cache and restart the computer.
You can find out how to do this by searching for “Google Chrome Cache Delete” or something similar.
You can also delete the cache on FireTV stick.
(5) Wait a day or two.
Sometimes, if you wait a day or two, it will come back as if it had never happened.
If you make it to (4) and it doesn’t work, you can contact the VPN company immediately, but you may want to wait a few days to see if it comes back.
If you can’t see Tver after doing all of (1) through (5), contact your VPN company!
How to choose a VPN company from the experience of not being able to see Tver
In light of the experience of not being able to see Tver, I wonder what is important in choosing a VPN company.
- Number of servers
- Enhanced support system
I think it is.
The servers in (1) are. The more VPN servers in Japan, the better.
Even if one server is blocked by Tver, it is possible to change to another server and still be seen.
(2) The more extensive the support system is, not to mention the more reliable it is, the better.
If you are looking for a VPN to watch Tver from abroad, you should consider these two points when choosing a VPN company.
