How to Stream Your Favorite Content AnywherePosted on 13th March 2019
Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards… What a time we live in! However, not everybody is able to watch the show without any limitations even after paying for the subscription. Not to mention those unfortunate people who can’t watch them at all because they were born in a different part of the world than that allowed on the streaming company’s list.
Isn’t it frustrating? Well, we are not going to muse over the moral aspect of such a phenomenon, but instead, teach you how to work around those restrictions and enjoy great shows to their fullest.
How to Stream Content in 3 Easy Steps
It’s not a secret that services like Netflix heavily restrict the number of shows if you live outside of the US, and even if you have paid for the subscription ion the official website. A lot of others do the same. Luckily, you don’t need to pay a rather hefty monthly fee (at least for some of us) and agree to what the service is offering you. You have more possibilities.
Here’s what you need to do to unleash the true power of the Internet on your device:
- Go to veepn.com, pick your platform from the list of platforms we support, and download the app. We support all major operating systems out there, including Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android and Linux. We also have handy extensions for Opera, Mozilla and Chrome browsers, if you prefer it that way.
- Sing into your account, or create one if you don’t have already. VeePN is a paid service, but we offer a 7-day free trial so you can test it off. We also have a no-hassle money-back guarantee during the first 30 days.
- Start our app and choose one of the servers in the location you need, typically the US or the UK. Once you are connected, you can gain access to the service you want.
Now grab your favorite snacks, a warm blanket and prepare to immerse yourself in complicated relations and mind-boggling adventures.
Who Does the Magic?
How does all this wizardry with making the US services believe you are located in their country work? Don’t worry, it doesn’t require snake charming and other difficult stuff. On the other hand, it’s quite simple. Here’s how it works.
When you connect to the Internet, your router assigns an IP address to the device you are using, which may change over time (unless you are using a static IP, but that’s a story for another time). Since every country has a certain range of assigned IPs, every website and service you access can tell where you are from. This is a simplified description of how geo-restricting services work.
Now let’s have a look at how VeePN can change that in a single click. When you use our service to access any resource on the Internet, the path of your data looks like this: your device – VeePN – your ISP – the service. At the “VeePN” stage your device is assigned a new IP you can choose from the list of available ones, and the data passes to its final destination, appearing to be from the place you’ve chosen.
This way you can appear to services and websites as you were from the United States (or another country of your choice). Though Netflix and some other streaming services are strengthening their defense against VPN services, and devise more complex ways of telling where the user really comes from (e.g. comparison of your IP and the language you use, or the country you chose during the registration). So be careful, especially with the websites that issue bans for using a VPN.
But it’s not only the websites that are getting smarter – our engineers are constantly working on improving the security and masking ability of the encryption protocols we use, so you can access all the favorite services without any limitations.
For example, we have developed a custom protocol called Smart VeePN, which provides our users with a higher level of protection, as well as allows to mask your traffic, meaning that no outside observer can tell you are using a VPN.
