Can I Use a VPN to Unblock ARD Outside Germany?

Some VPN users connect to a server in Germany to watch ARD from outside the country, but this is against our terms of service and is not acceptable.

CyberGhost is a privacy-forward no-logs VPN, meaning we can't view your online activity and we never share your browsing data. While we don't know what you're doing online, you should always comply with ARD's terms of use, our terms of service, and any applicable law, including copyright.

Stream ARD in UHD

CyberGhost VPN's blazing-fast network gives you the speeds you need to watch seamlessly in the highest resolution available. Our busiest locations have 10-Gbps servers.

We deploy fast and secure VPN protocols that give you the best balance of speed and security. The CyberGhost VPN app selects the best protocol for your connection, but you can customize your connection in the app settings.

Do you experience slowdowns or drops in video quality whenever you start streaming? Some ISPs throttle your streaming traffic to conserve bandwidth.

Don’t let your ISP stand between you and your Lauchhammer marathon. Use CyberGhost VPN to encrypt your traffic. VPN encryption prevents your ISP from monitoring your activity, meaning it won't throttle you because you're streaming.

Take CyberGhost VPN for a test drive risk-free with the 45-day money-back guarantee.

Connect securely to Wi-Fi with CyberGhost VPN

Enjoy ARD on Public Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi is convenient but can be risky. Unsecured networks are an easy target for cybercriminals looking to steal your data.

CyberGhost VPN keeps snoops and bad actors away from your data, so you can live stream ARD without worrying about your privacy. We use tough encryption and a built-in kill switch to protect your data at all times.

As an extra measure, you can set up the Wi-Fi protection feature to automatically launch CyberGhost VPN when you’re about to join an unsecured network.

It’s getting harder to protect your online privacy. ISPs and websites track your activity and some companies even sell your data. Most countries even have data retention laws, which force ISPs to store your activity logs.

That’s why CyberGhost VPN is headquartered in Romania, where there are no data retention requirements. Our dedication to your privacy is upheld by our strict no-logs policy.

We don’t track or collect any of your browsing data. Our RAM-based servers are routinely wiped so nothing remains.

Boost Your Online Anonymity


No. In fact, you’re unlikely to find a free (and safe) VPN with fast servers in Germany.

Free VPNs are typically slow and have limited bandwidth, which results in significant buffering and lag. Worse, free VPNs often sell usage logs. If you’re not paying with your private data, then you’ll have to deal with annoying in-app advertising.

You’re better off choosing a premium VPN with a money-back guarantee. That means you can try it out risk-free. CyberGhost offers a whopping 45-day money-back guarantee — the longest of any premium VPN! Enjoy watching ARD on streaming-optimized servers in Germany.

ARD is only available in Germany.

When traveling outside Germany, use CyberGhost VPN to get a German IP and stream the entire ARD library as if you never left home.

Watch ARD securely on any device with CyberGhost VPN. We have apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and Android TV. Use our Smart DNS feature if you need a VPN for Apple TV or other Smart TVs.

A single CyberGhost account lets you stream on 7 devices at once. The kids can watch Sesamstrasse while you relax with your favorite show elsewhere.

Yes. It’s perfectly legal to use CyberGhost VPN in most countries, including Germany.

Some countries like China, Turkey, and Russia restrict or ban the use of VPNs. If you’re planning to visit another country, be sure to check local laws around VPN use.

ARD is only available to viewers in Germany, so you need a German IP address to access ARD content. A VPN is the easiest way to change your IP address and enjoy your favorite shows while abroad.

CyberGhost VPN has streaming-optimized servers for popular platforms like Netflix, HBO Max, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and more.

We check these servers daily to make sure you can always get instant access to your favorite streaming sites.

ARD offers a good selection of live sports, including gymnastics, athletics, cycling, football, swimming, diving, judo, and lots more. It also has a selection of sports documentaries and interviews.
