Live streaming makes Channel 7 more accessible than ever
Channel 7 is one of Australia’s most popular television channels, and offers a line-up of shows that can be livestreamed via the dedicated app. The service is available for just about any internet-enabled device, including mobile devices, set-top devices such as Apple TV, smart TVs, and gaming consoles. What’s more, Australians can access live-streamed entertainment through Channel 7 at no cost except for the data used.
The Channel 7 live streaming service, which is released in sync with the Channel 7 TV broadcast, is a free service. However, there are some exceptions – a small number of programs that air on Channel 7 TV may not be shown on the live-streaming platform due to broadcast rights. For instance, sport activities whose live-streaming rights have been bought out by another service may be aired on Channel 7 TV, but not on the Channel 7 live streaming network.
The channel can be accessed by visiting the 7Plus website, or running the 7Plus app on an iOS or android device. However, the free broadcast is geo-blocked outside Australian territories, so your access to Channel 7 will be blocked once you leave the country.
How to Live-Stream Channel 7 on Your Mobile Phone
For those residing in Australia, it’s a very simple process to begin streaming your favorite Channel 7 TV shows via the app. However, access is limited to Australian regions only, so the network is not technically accessible from outside Australian territories. However, you can easily outmaneuver this limitation by cloaking your I.P address with a VPN. The channel only locks you out when it detects that your I.P address does not originate from an Australian address. A VPN allows you to bypass this I.P address check.
Once you’ve successfully installed and activated a VPN software,
- Connect to an Australian server
- Open the 7 Plus website from your device or download and run the 7plus app for your device.
- Next, click on Shows A-Z and launch any of your favorite shows. You can also choose to watch the Live TV currently airing on Channel 7 TV.

You can also watch the 7Plus network from your PlayStation 4 gaming console through the version of the 7Plus app for the gaming console.
Note, however, that your streaming experience may not be affected by the choice of device as much as it might be by data speeds. The optimal network speed to enjoy a seamless streaming session with is at least 3Mbps.
Accessing TV shows is becoming a far more diverse experience, with catchup TV, live-streaming and extra content now available for fans to have a more immersive experience. Channel 7 has joined the trend, and fans of the popular TV shows hosted by the channel have more access than ever.
