The web is changing, many of the world's best websites are now restricting access to their local area. To watch the BBC iPlayer you need to be in the UK, Hulu, HBO and ABC are only accessible from the USA.
Unless of course you are able to hide your location effectively using a VPN service. This short video demonstrates what I consider to be the fastest and safest VPN solution available and some of the features it has.
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and is effect an encrypted tunnel between your computer (or device) and a VPN server. This server relays your requests to whichever site you are trying to access. One of the advantages of this is that any web site will only see the location of the VPN server and not you. This means that using a USA VPN server will effectively give you a US IP address.
Many people now uses software which can switch between different VPN servers in different countries, allowing them access to sites which were previously blocked due their location.
Watch how I access a US only media site from the UK by connecting through a USA VPN service.
