Watch Russian TV’s 2×2 from Anywhere with this WorkaroundLast Updated by Gray Williams on October 07, 2019
2×2 (Twice Two) is one of the most resilient Russian TV channels of all time. It was the first commercial TV stations during the days of the Soviet Union in 1989, only to be shut down until 2003.
Since then, it has thrived as the country’s home for foreign animated TV series including American stalwarts American Dad!, Beavis and Butt-head, Family Guy, The Simpsons, and South Park.
Fortunately, the cause is not lost for these individuals. Using a virtual private network (VPN) is a safe, secure, legal way to watch your favorite 2×2 programming regardless of where you are located in the world.
What is a VPN and what does it do?
A VPN is a software client that makes it possible to browse the Internet safely and securely by using a remote server in another country in combination with high-level encryption technology. A secondary function of VPNs is to serve as workarounds for geo-blocked websites by connecting to a remote computer in order to emulate an IP address from the country the site is located in.
Here’s how it works. The VPN allows a user to connect his computer to a remote server in Russia by way of an encrypted connection. No data that passes through the connection can be seen by any outside party, legitimate or otherwise. So, the user enters the website for the Russian Disney Channel at his end and that information request is sent to the remote server through the encrypted connection. Once there, the request is decrypted by the remote Russian computer. The request is paired with a local IP address, then sent on to the Disney Channel website.
When the Disney Channel website recognizes the IP address, it allows the user to start streaming content. The content first travels to the remote server where it is first encrypted then sent to the home computer via the encrypted tunnel.
