How to unblock and watch ZDF channels online outside Germany ?

ZDF is a public-service German television channel offering cultural, entertainment and live sports programming such as Olympic games, Champions League, Bundesliga and FIFA World Cup to german audiences. For Brazil FIFA World Cup 2014 it is a good way to watch live all the competition.

For germans travelling outside Germany find themselves restricted to stream ZDF mediathek live site and can’t use all their PC, Mac, mobile and Tablet App (iPhone, iPad, Android…).
