Does any one use VPN for accessing streaming and other things in the US? TY
Anyone who wishes to access geo-locked content from an IP outside the authorized area will need to use something - be that a VPN or some other variant of a proxy service.
Those fortunate enough to have an US based IP as part of their internet package have an easier time than those who do not.
Ditto, smartdns. I also integrate SDNS with no-ip so I don't have to keep refreshing the SDNS proxy when it changes. Once no-ip registers a SDNS IP, when SDNS changes, no-ip does, too. But like a junk mail filter, it has to be trained.We use smartdnsproxy We get both smart dns and VPN, but to access US tv, netflix, hulu, etc., you only need to use the smart dns. We seldom use the VPN when needed for website that are not included with the smart dns. Have been using this smartdnsproxy.com server for many years now.
Yea let's publish all of our VPNs so Amazon and whoever else can block them all.
Great idiotic idea.
Yea, Amazon isn't reading DR1 but you never know. Its public information. Interweeb tentacles are endless and long.
As you mention, the issue for streamers is all their content is contracted with geographic restrictions. For instance, Hulu may want you/a group of offshore users to pay, but a series they offer is contracted with "licensed only in the US and Canada." If that license is breached, there can be severe financial civil consequences that far outweigh their desire to have a customer in the DR.Yeah right because Amazon, Netflix Hulu et al don’t want customers paying for their content. Are customers with VPNs actually getting something for free? No they’re not. They’re paying for a subscription and paying to use a VPN to access it.
It just some stupid geo blocked copyright law invented by greedy lawyers. The streaming services make some sort of attempts to block them knowing full well there are work arounds.
