The best and most popular versions of video streaming services like HBO Now, Netflix, Hulu Plus and BBC iPlayer are not available to you if you live outside of the host country. That means if you live outside of the United Kingdom, you are blocked from accessing the free BBC iPlayer. If you live outside of the United States, you are blocked from accessing the full United States libraries of Netflix (pay service), Hulu (ad supported) and Hulu Plus (pay and ad supported).
Netflix – what is it and why do I want it?
Netflix is so popular in the United States that it has coined a new term “Netflixing” where viewers watch the entire season of their favourite series in one go, all advertisement free. Once you experience the freedom of video streaming on demand, you will never want to endure broadcast television again (that includes free-to-air and cable television). Netflix streaming plans (full library) content starts from only US$7.99 per month (forget $100 per month Australian cable television plans).
Netflix streams a huge library of television drama, movies and documentaries, including the wildly popular The Walking Dead series.
Unfortunately, you cannot access U.S. version of Netflix and its full library if you try to access it from outside of the United States, a limitation called geoblocking (some countries have Netflix but with a much more limited video library). Fortunately, there is a trivial and affordable trick to get around these geoblocks so you can access U.S. Netflix and other blocked video streaming services.
