Want to watch content exclusive to the US? Try using the Unblock-US service.
Each computer or Internet-enabled device has an address assigned to it, which means that if you have an Aussie address assigned to your device and you may be blocked if you want to stream something that is exclusive to the US. Unblock-US will assign your computer with an address that can access content in the US without having to move your actual device. You can setup Unblock-US on each device, or you can change your wireless router’s settings so you can run Unblock-US on all devices connected to the network.
Whether you’re looking to access TV shows, movies, music or the play the latest games, Unblock US will make sure you’re not limited by your region and help you stay connected to the rest of the world. For Netflix alone, Unblock-US gives you access to over 25 countries.
Is using a VPN to access geographically restricted content legal?
There are many legitimate uses for a VPN. However, the legality of using one to access geographically restricted content is a bit of a grey area. While you're not likely to attract the attention of the Australian Government, you do run the risk of having your VPN or streaming subscription canceled. There is also the chance that a copyright holder may want to pursue legal action if you're found to be accessing that content in an unlicensed region. Keep in mind that the very nature of a VPN masks your IP and prevents your online activity, so it's not for us to say if and how the copyright holders would be able to identify you if you do choose to access their content without the proper licensing. Here at finder.com.au, we do not encourage internet browsing activity outside the law, we only aim to compare the services available to Australians.
