The age of the Internet has meant an explosion of both new media to consume and new ways to consume it. There are more avenues for getting quality content delivered directly to you than ever before. It can be just as overwhelming to pick which service to use for streaming, downloading, or buying digital content as it is choosing which movie to actually watch!
Unfortunately, with the advent of all this new technology, there are of course some limits that have been enforced and placed in the way of consumers looking to enjoy content from a number of different countries and global regions.
To break it down quickly...
There are different contracts between distribution companies (like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and other streaming services around the globe) and the companies that hold the rights to movies the public would be interested in seeing. For example, when the American Netflix DNS buys the rights to stream a movie in America, another company in a different part of the world may hold the rights to distributing or streaming that same movie for their region.
This means that a streaming website or app will then have to block access to that movie for that region's or country's users. This may result in unhappy customers but the company is legally bound to follow the terms of their agreement.
Thankfully, though, there are services and applications that the consumer can use to skirt these regional blocks and still enjoy premium, new and entertaining movies no matter where they live. With a DNS Proxy, anyone can access any region's movies with a few clicks of the mouse.
How does this technology work?
Well, let's break it down.
Your computer, and more specifically your access point for the Internet sends out what's known as an IP address. This is a unique identifier that tells other systems and networks who you are, where you are, and gives other information so you can get information back.
The IP address is linked to your location, and if you live in a country that doesn't have access to a certain movie or movies, then the IP address is what's in the way of you being able to watch or stream those movies.
A DNS Proxy works in masking where your location truly is, bouncing your signal through another location. In this case, the DNS Proxy is helping to make it appear as though you live in the desired country to gain access to streaming that country's or region's movies!
A DNS Proxy is safe, legal, and easy to use
There are plenty of services that offer simple point-and-click software for people of all computer skill levels to access. It is simply a tool to help unlock a larger selection of movies for anyone to enjoy.
If you've been looking for a solution to routinely being denied the chance to watch something new, or even an old favorite, a DNS Proxy might just be the solution for you.
