Many websites restrict the access to their content by geo IP.
E.g. you cannot access the BBC streams outside of UK, you cannot access Netflix/Hulu/Pandora outside of USA and so on…
The solution to this problem is to use a VPN service that will give you an IP of the country of your choice.
I’ve now tried BlackVPN, a global OpenVPN service, located in the Netherlands.If you like my work, buy me a beer. (Suggested: 3€ for a beer, or more for more beer ;-) )
