Websites and services are blocked by denying users access based on their IP address. Each time you connect to the internet, you are given an IP address indicating your location. This forces services which see that IP to apply any valid content restrictions.
VPNs are the best way to make the most out of Roku. A VPN hides your original IP from websites and services, instead showing them a local one and making them welcome you with open arms. You can set up a VPN on your home router, removing any content restrictions from all devices connected to it, including Roku.
But this isn’t just about content access — VPNs also encrypt your online traffic and shield your internet activities from your ISP, network administrator, and malicious snoops. Connecting to a VPN server not only lets you see Roku content, but also makes sure that you can enjoy it in privacy and security.
Just like streaming services, certain shows and channels may be inaccessible due to your geographical locations. These limits are placed due to regional distribution rights, but they pose a genuine problem for many users, especially those trying to access Roku from outside of the US.
It takes only 3 simple steps to experience internet freedom.
