How to use a VPN for streaming

Apart from staying anonymous online, the best VPNs have many uses, and access to more TV shows and movies is one of the biggest ones. In fact, when we asked our readers what they use their VPNs for, over half of them said they use a VPN for streaming, with a hefty 10% saying it’s more important to them than the privacy benefits.

But how does it work? Well, streaming sites like Netflix offer different content in different regions, meaning that if you’re abroad, you won’t have the same selection to choose from. This is called geo-blocking. By using a VPN, you can virtually change your location and trick your chosen streaming site into showing you content that would normally be blocked in your physical location.
