A fan favorite among Indonesian children, Zak Storm (also known as Zak Storm: Super Pirate) is a computer animated TV series currently enjoying a successful second season.

It airs on RCTI in Indonesia along with several other networks across the world, including Spain, France, Italy, Flanders, Netherlands, Portugal, UK, US, Canada, Ukraine, New Zealand, Singapore, and the Middle East.

But for the more than 8 million Indonesians living abroad, it’s impossible to find Zak Storm in their native tongue on any of those channels, save one: Indonesia’s RCTI.

Zak Storm tells the tale of a teenager who winds up in the Bermuda Triangle on a pirate ship manned by a talking sword. The titular character realizes his father’s necklace is a magic gem that gives him special powers. His mission is to unite the Seven Seas with his crew of misfits in order to return home.

For kids and young people who want to watch Zak Storm in their native language while living or traveling outside of Indonesia, there is one great solution: using a virtual private network (VPN).

VPNs are safe, low cost, and 100% legal to use to watch episodes of Zak Storm.

How does a VPN work?

VPNs allows individuals to access the Internet through a remote server that affords them extra layers of security and privacy. All Internet traffic is routed through a secure, heavily-encrypted network that keeps it anonymous from third-party prying eyes like Internet Service Providers (ISPs), government watchdogs, and hackers and other cybercriminals.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)
When a VPN is active, anyone trying to spy on your Internet movements would be able to tell you were connected, but not see what you were looking at or what information you were uploading or downloading. For the purposes of watching Zak Storm in Indonesian, the remote server located outside of your jurisdiction would have to be in Indonesia. Why?

Consider that you would make your requests to visit the RCTI website through the encrypted tunnel, meaning the request would be decrypted by the remote computer located in Indonesia. Since RCTI only allows computers bearing Indonesian IP addresses to stream online programming, you would need one to access it. The remote server in Indonesia will attach a new IP address to your data requests before it sends them to the RCTI website. RCTI’s website security will see the IP address and let you stream episodes of Zak Storm.

Those episodes will first download to your remote server, which will encrypt them and send them through the secure tunnel back to your computer. There they will be decrypted and you can watch them anytime, regardless of if you are in Houston, Halifax, Holland, or Havana.

Step-by-step guide to watching Zak Storm using a VPN

  1. Research VPNs online to make the best selection for yourself. Ensure that the VPN you pick has servers in Indonesia.
  2. Download and install the VPN client on your Internet-capable device of choice. You may be able to install it on more than one depending on how the VPN is set up.
  3. Open a new connection and connect to a server in Indonesia.
  4. Confirm the connection is set up correctly by seeing if your IP address shows Indonesia using a “What’s My IP address?” app or website.
  5. Navigate to RCTI’s website to begin streaming episodes of Zak Storm.
