Why Can’t I watch TF1 Online Outside of France?

When you try to access TF1 online outside France, you are greeted with this message:


This happens because TF1 is geo-restricted; available only in certain geographical locations.

What kind of content can I stream with TF1 Online?

The user interface is incredibly intuitive, with the entertainment being divided into various different categories to help you navigate your way around.

  • Séries & Fiction
  • Divertissements
  • Infos, Mags & Sport
  • Jeunesse

Séries & Fiction – Even if you don’t speak French, it’s pretty obvious what this category is going to contain. French fictional drama is renowned for its artistry, and TF1 has no shortage of this kind of content.

Les Feux D’amour- with a literal translation of ‘The Fires Of Love’, it’s not hard to guess why so many people are drawn to this quintessentially French soap. Exploring the lives of the people residing in Genoa city (with a large focus on their love life), the soap weaves a complicated web of connections.

You can stream every episode of Les Feux D’amour LIVE on TF1.

  • La vengeance aux yeux clairs 

Onto something with a little more grit: our tough as nails protagonist will let nothing stand in her way as she seeks revenge for the murder of her brother. As she infiltrates a crime ring, we wonder whether there’s anything that she’s not willing to do… wow TF1. You really are spoiling us with the sheer choice of programs that you’ve got going on.

Stream this gripping crime thriller live with Ivacy VPN.

Of course, these programs are highly entertaining, but TF1 has its own category for entertainment – ‘Divertissements’. In this category, you’ll slightly different content.

Danse avec Les Stars. Everyone loves a jazzy dancing program – with the flamboyance of the French, this experience becomes all the more enjoyable. Every episode is highly anticipated as you gain a unique insight into the celebrities’ lives as they work hard, boogie away and strut their way into further stardom.

  • Vendredi, Tout est permit avec Arthur 

This is a chat show like no other. Arthur brings together 6 celebrities from different areas of fame and makes them partake in a series of whacky tasks. This results in a combination of celebrities that you would have never expected, as well as rob tickling laughter as you watch them engage in undignified acts.

Of course, entertainment must cater to all demographics. For those of you who are sports lovers, fear not, as you can stream sports on TF1 online, under the official category of Infos Mags and Sport.

We can’t start writing about sports without mentioning the most popular sport on TV at the moment. TF1 is broadcasting the FIFA women’s world cup online – so you can stream it live.

This year has proved wonderful for piquing interest in what was previously not given as much interest as it deserved.

Now you can watch every match with TF1 Live Stream online free.

It seems fair to also write about a sport that is currently not as popular as it could be in a few years’ time.

You can stream live handball with TF1.  Though you may not have heard of it before, there are international teams like Slovenia and Norway vying for the trophy.

After watching all of these sports you’re going to be itching to share your opinion about how a particular team performed. You’re also going to want to hear expert’s opinions and predictions.

You can watch sports analysis galore online on TF1.

One shining example is the Rendez Vous Sport, a general sports discussion programme that’ll keep you up to date with all the latest sports news.

So far, TF1 online has catered to an awful lot of audiences. It has churned out soaps and dramas for those of you who fancy a bit of spice in your life, dance shows for those among you who don’t have two left feet ( or watch people dancing to compensate for the fact that they have) and live sports and sports analysis for the sports fiends.

There is one big demographic that’s missing.

The Kiddiwinkles

But TF1 has all the content you could wish for – enough to keep all the members of your family entertained.

Their jeunesse section is one that deserves a whole lot of attention.

Loup – an animated show about a curious wolf, this is bound to keep the little ones entertained. The loveable wolf also grows on you as an adult…even if you have to watch it on repeat.
