How to Access Geo-Restricted Content

Due to licensing rights issues, content from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other popular streaming sites is supposedly only available for viewing if you reside in the U.S or certain regions of the globe.

So, if you are traveling abroad, the site will block you from accessing the content even if you are a subscriber. To bypass the geo-restriction, you would need to use Hotspot Shield.

Hotspot Shield enables you to get a virtual I.P. address from the U.S. so that you can bypass the geo-restriction.

Follow the step by step instructions below to use Hotspot Shield to access the movies and shows listed above if you are traveling outside of the U.S.

Step by Step Instructions to Unblock Geo-Restricted Content

1) Turn on Hotspot Shield on your device. The Hotspot Shield app is available on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Click below to download the app on your devices:

You may upgrade to Hotspot Shield Elite version to benefit from faster speed, unlimited and unrestricted access to your favorite content, unblock 18 virtual locations and protect up to 5 devices simultaneously. Click here to upgrade to Elite.

2) Inside the app, once protection is activated, select the U.S. virtual location to get a US IP address. You may check your new IP info via www.findipinfo.com (our advice: clear your browser’s cookies prior to checking).

3) Connect to Amazon Prime, Netflix, or other streaming sites of your choice (available with a ‘United States’ IP address), grab some popcorns, and enjoy the show with your little ones!
