If you live in China, you may not hear of Dropbox because the ISPs in China do not allow you to access it. Some of you might use it and later found it fail to load. It did work in the past and has been blocked since 2010. Dropbox a personal cloud storage service. The service provides 2 GB of storage for free and up to 100 GB on various for-fee plans. It is a home for all your photos, documents, videos, and other files that allows you to access your stuff from anywhere.

However, it does not work when you travel to China as Dropbox has been blocked by the Great Firewall of China. You need to get through the censorship.
China is one of the sturdiest countries in the whole world which holds its expertise growth and development, internet security, scientific discoveries, and substructures firmly. It is very well known about the security strictness in respect to the Internet. After the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protest on June 4, the Chinese authority put lots efforts on Internet censorship. Why is Dropbox on the list? It didn’t violate the Chinese laws. However, it allows users to share files and dissemination of information in near-real time. As Dropbox is not based in China, it doesn’t have to work with the Chinese Government to filter content or restrict access to “inappropriate information”. It is destined to be blocked by China once they become popular enough. Besides, there is another reason for the block. In China, most of the western or the widely used applications on the Internet are blocked. This action gives the local Internet company a chance to develop in the domestic market. Therefore, the Golden Shield Project was created to ensure that users in China can’t access those websites. It is known as the Great firewall of China. It is considered the most prime, extensive, and most advanced Internet censorship establishment in the world. Is it possible to defeat such a powerful thing to access Dropbox and other blocked services in China? Yes, it is possible. Read the rest of this post »

Hey. I need your suggestion. I am a HBO Now subscriber while I will go on a trip to China for 6 months. I don’t want to give up HBO Now, but it is only available in US. Is there a way to carry my HBO Now with me to China? What do I do?
HBO Now is HBO’s stand-alone video-on-demand streaming service which is very popular in many countries. It is very convenient for you to watch video because it doesn’t require a cable subscription or satellite TV subscription to use. Many users choose it because it has the great content, unlimited access to all of HBO. On this platform, you can watch every episode, every season, hit movies, sports, thought-provoking documentaries, and comedy specials. Everything HBO broadcasts like Game of Thrones, Westworld, The Deuce, and so much more are available for you while you don’t have to pay a premium price for hundreds of channels you will never watch. You download its app on your phones, tablets, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, and more so that you can watch it anytime you want. If you don’t want the app, you also can watch it on HBONOW.com on Safari, Firefox and Chrome etc. It is such a great service. The only issue with the service is that you’re not able to use it unless you’re located within the United States of America. After you travel abroad, it does not allow you to access the app or website. It is particularly difficult to use it in China because there are many Internet limits. The Great Firewall of China blocks most of the western video-sharing platforms. You need to overcome the geo-restriction as well as the firewall to access HBO Now in China.
Is it possible to access HBO Now outside the US? Yes, it is possible. The HBO Now subscription can travel with you. For example, you still are able to access your favorite videos when you are on a trip in China. In order to watch HBO Now from abroad, it is needed to make the HBO Now website server believe that you are actually located in the United States. The IP address is the key to solve the problem because the website server knows your location according to your IP address. You need to mask it with a US-based one. Where and how can you get such an IP address when you are in China? We can tell you that a VPN provides such IP address. You need to sign up a VPN plan and they will give you an American IP address which will make streaming services believe that you are located in the United States. Read the rest of this post »
