To watch your favorite YouTube TV channels on PS4 and PS5, you need to download the app from the PlayStation Store.

Watch YouTube TV on PS4 and PS5– 3 Methods

To watch YouTube TV on PS4 and PS5, you can use one of these methods:

  • Use DNS Server – Method 1
  • Connect your PS4 and PS5 to a VPN router – Method 2
  • Set up a VPN on PS4 and PS5 over PC – Method 3 

Use DNS Server – Method 1

DNS server is a service offer to watch geo-blocked content on devices that do not support VPN apps directly, such as PS4 and PS5. 

There are many VPN services that offer DNS servers, but I found ExpressVPN’s DNS server (known as MediaStreamer) the best among all to watch YouTube TV on my PS4 and PS5. 

Here how to use DNS Server to watch YouTube TV on PS4 in Australia:

  1. Subscribe a reliable VPN, then connect to a US server ( I recommend ExpressVPN). 
  2. Head to www.expressvpn.com/dns_settings and sign in with your username and password. 
  3. A verification code will be sent to your email address to get DNS settings access.
  4. Enter that code to access DNS settings. 
  5. Now on the DNS Settings page, under IP address registration, click on Register my IP address. (Note if you only see “Register” instead of “Register my IP address”, there is no need to do anything).
  6. Now enable the “Automatically register my IP address.”
  7. Go to www.expressvpn.com/setup#playstation
  8. When the page opens, you will see the DNS server IP address, copy that address. 
  9. Now open your PS4 and PS5, Settings → Network → Settings → Set Up Internet Connection. 
  10. Go to the Advanced Settings of the Internet connection that your PS4 and PS5 is using. 
  11. In Advance Settings, do the following:
  • IP Address Settings: Automatic 
  • DHCP Host: Don’t Specify 
  • DNS Settings: Manual 
  • Primary DNS: Use the DNS IP address you copied before 
  • Secondary DNS: leave as it is
  • Proxy server: Don’t use 
  • MTU Settings: Automatic
  1. Now click OK and wait for the process. 
  2. Once you are connected go to the PS4 and PS5 main menu, search YouTube TV, sign in and start streaming. 

Connect your PS4 and PS5 to a VPN router – Method 2

If you’re not ready to purchase Aircove, you may be able to set up ExpressVPN on your router manually: 

  1. Check to see if your router supports manual setup.
  2. Open your router’s admin page by entering the router’s IP address in your browser search bar. You’ll need to log in using your router’s username and password.
  3. Look for VPN options in the Settings or Advanced Settings section, then follow the manual setup instructions for your model.
  4. Once the VPN is set up, you can connect your PS4 and PS5 to the router as normal, by Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi.
  5. Now head to the YouTube TV app on your PlayStation, sign in and enjoy!

Set up a VPN on PS4 and PS5 over PC – Method 3 

You can also share a VPN connection from a Windows PC that is running ExpressVPN. Just create a mobile hotspot, then connect your PS4 and PS5 to it: 

  1. Sign up for ExpressVPN and install the app for Windows. Then, select the Control Panel and choose Network and Internet. Switch on the Mobile Hotspot feature.
  2. Click on Status and select Change Adapter options. In the list of Network connections, identify your Network name.
  3. Right-click on the ExpressVPN Tap Adapter and choose Properties.
  4. In the pop-up window that shows up, go to the Sharing tab and tick the box that permits other network users to connect.
  5. In the menu, pick the hotspot you’ve set up, and click OK.
  6. Finally, open the ExpressVPN application, connect to your desired server location, and choose the OpenVPN (either UDP or TCP) protocol.
  7. Now connect your PS4 or PS5 with the hotspot and enjoy YouTube TV right now!

How VPN Allows Me to Watch and Download YouTube TV in Australia?

Due to content licensing VRV is not available in YouTube TV . This means if you try to access VRV on YouTube TV , it won’t allow you to stream the content. 

But, there’s a way around this! With VPN, you can mask your local IP address and change it with a US IP address, tricking YouTube TV that you are somewhere in America.   

When you use a VPN and connect to a server in the USA, your device pretends to be in America. After that, when you try to access YouTube TV, The  streaming service believes  that you are actually there since an IP address is the only way to identify the user’s location and allows you to watch the content.
