• Using a VPN to access different content

    One of the tools I use to watch different content online is a VPN or virtual private network software. If you choose a different country, many times it unlocks video content from that content to be viewed on your computer. This can be seen this time of year when the Olympics are on and you can view other country’s coverage by changing your VPN to be located in that country.

    Take for example the links to Canadian Olympic coverage or French TV’s Olympic coverage. Unless you are in that country, you can’t access them. Oh but wait, turn on your VPN, choose that country in your VPN connection so that the IP address of your computer is now assigned to that other country and refresh your browser. Suddenly you can watch that country’s coverage on your computer.

    Just remember to turn off the VPN when you stop watching to “move” yourself back to your location.
