How to Access Geo-Restricted Content of Websites like Netflix?

Hi, i hope you can help with this problem. I want to watch a TV show on Netflix that I have watched half of its season in USA. But just fail and always send a message saying “Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available.” It is annoying, my Internet connection is good, I am sure there is no problem with my computer and Netflix account. I am in China having a meeting with our business partner. Everything was perfectly good when I was still in USA two days ago. What is happening? Why does it present the error all the time? Can you please help me with it?

Hey, I am from UK and now in China for sightseeing with my families. I am trying to play the BBC iPlayer, but it apparently there is a problem taking place. I can’t get run the service as I could in UK. I have no idea what is going on. I have tried using different devices like my Mac computer, iPhone, even the android phone of my Chinese friend. It is the same problem. Please help me! I am tired and don’t know what to do. Much appreciated!

More Information about Geo-restriction or Geo-blocking.

Geo-restriction or geo-blocking is defined as the practice of a content protection technology to restrict access to different content according to the geographical location of the user. Services or websites with geo-restriction or geo-blocking policy like Netflix are applying certain geolocation techniques to calculate the user’s location. They may have established a database or list against which the user’s IP is checked and identified. The outcome of the check decides which content you are allowed to access and which content you are restricted from reaching.

For example, if your IP is recognized as from China, you are not allowed to access anything on Netflix; you will receive a similar message saying “Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available.” when you try to watch Netflix from China. And in India, it is reported only part of the whole content of Netflix can be accessed by the Indian users. A TV show produced in USA may not be available on India market because of copyright and licensing issue.

Apart from Netflix, many other services or websites are also practicing geo-restriction or geo-blocking to restrict access to their content. Such services as Hulu, HBO, USA Network, ABC, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, WWE, Star Sports, Sky Italia, etc. are all included in the list. HBO now is a service that can be accessed only from United States. The service can’t be reached from outside USA because different licensed broadcasters in different countries may replace the original content with their own, similar service to make it more successful or make more profits. Geo-restriction or geo-blocking can be used to restrict access to quality TV shows, movies, music and any other multimedia content on the Internet, filter malicious traffic, enforce price discrimination, etc.

How to Use Popcorn Time in China?

I was wondering if anyone has experience using Popcorn Time here. I got problem in using Popcorn Time here in China. Somehow, I can’t load it. I have no idea what’s going on here. By the way, I could use it on the same device in my country. Now I can’t use Popcorn Time in China. Any suggestion?

What is Popcorn Time?

Popcorn Time is a platform which streams movies and TV shows from torrents for users. Users can watch various movies and TV shows for free on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android device. The best versions of movie or TV show are available in the catalogue. You can have the excellent experience as long as long you have proper internet connection. Some Popcorn Time users say, “It lets you access just about everything on the internet.” It operates very effectively with the help of BitTorrent protocol. You can upload and download large files in an easier way which won’t take much time. Also, Popcorn Time’s story is one of the most fantastic ones. Its team operates without funding. However, it is a great platform with awesome torrent site and media player all in one that allows you to gather up your favorite content and watch it. It has been very popular all over the world.
Unfortunately, Popcorn Time is banned in China. It does not have support for Chinese subtitles at the moment. Like most other sites based around torrenting, Popcorn Time catches a bit of controversy. In some countries like China and United Arab Emirates, Popcorn Time is deemed inappropriate, politically sensitive, or otherwise disruptive to society. If you live in China, the Great Firewall of China will not allow you use it with the public network that all people use to access the Internet. How do servers find out you are living in those countries? The servers can figure out your rough location according to your IP address. When you visit a website, it can read your IP. Therefore, your connection to Popcorn Time is blocked once your Chinese IP is detected. Does that mean it is impossible to use Popcorn Time in China? No. You still can use it in China. However, you need extra help. You need a VPN to help you overcome the Geo-Restrictions. Read the rest of this post »

Is there a way to restore my files? Should I pay $ 300? How to remove the Bitcoin virus? Need your suggestions.

Brief Information of Bitcoin Virus

broke out on a Friday and waited to attack thousands of computers on the next Monday. Indeed, lots of computers had been attacked when users turned on their computer to start working. Most of the victims were working in school companies where many computers worked together. It was because that was very convenient for the hackers to spread Bitcoin virus. Once one computer was infected, the other ones would be compromised soon. Besides, files of school and companies are pretty important and worth money. Therefore, that was considered as an effective way to spread virus and collect illegal money. The Bitcoin virus is very nasty. It encrypts your videos, photos, music, document and other important files and demands an amount of $ 300 via bitcoin currency. Do not pay the ransom. You should not trust the criminals. They only care about money. They may just take your money away and leave the files encrypted. The bitcoin virus will stay on your computer and keep encrypt more files you store on it.

Best Way to Access Line in China

Hey. I am trying to use Line in China. I met a girl who came from Japan last week. We both like Gong Fu and have many things in common. We used to text each other. Today, she asked me if I have a Line account. Then, I tried to use Line app. Somehow, I can’t load it. Please tell me the best way to access Line in China. I really want to chat with her on Line. Thank you.

Introduction to Line and Reasons Why Line is Blocked in China

Line is a free app for users to have instant communications on electronic devices, which is really famous among the countries of the East Asia. However, you can’t access this app if you’re in China. It is because both the great firewall and the Line cooperation have blocked it from being employed in China. However, it doesn’t mean that Line is not famous in China. It is one of those companies who have taken over the most of the Chinese local markets with their character soft toys, t-shirts imprinted with these characters and much more. The CEO of the Line Corporation has stated that the cute characters of the Line chat app are completely perfect to reside in Chinese market.
So, why Line is blocked in China? After the riots of 2009, China has blocked almost every social media app like Line that is most prevalent around the globe. These social media apps were considered to be the main reason behind the intense view that was taken by the riots in 2009. The great Firewall of China has blocked almost every social media and chat app from other counties which include Facebook, Twitter, Line, Instagram, etc. because the government thinks that this app can have the adverse impact on the society. Hence, even today you won’t be able to access Line and other similar social media apps in China. Read the rest of this post »
