No. It will only function within Canada. There may be a possibility that if you are able to use a VPN while overseas that makes it look like you are in Canada that it may work but I haven't heard of anyone doing that yet.

Set up a VPN in your home computer and connect to it from anywhere. This way you can watch all channels available in the app, including the ones that have a green house icon, which require you to be in your home network.

SurfEasy VPN allows me to use Optik on the Go when in the US on my laptop.... does not work on my phone or tablet as Optik on the Go appears to also check the GPS.


Optik on the Go is great to catch up on your local home news.


For TV shows.... I just use Kodi now..... there is no geographic location limitation.
