Netflix and geographical limitations.

Because of broadcast rights, the platform may not, in fact, not to offer the same library of programs from one country to the other.
Not wishing to illegally download the series and movies of the platform Netflix, some subscribers are able to access the entire catalog of the u.s. broadcaster using programs available for all, the VPN.
Since last year, Netflix prohibited the use of the software and sometimes manages to block the use. “Some subscribers to use a proxy server or a tool for unblocking for access to the programmes available outside their country.

What is a VPN ?.
A VPN or “virtual private Network” is a system that allows you to send or receive data across a private connection, while using the internet.
For example, a VPN can be used by a large company for security reasons and to enable its employees to access their computers remotely.
A VPN is mainly used to hide the geographic location of a computer. Thus, more and more individuals are using this service to view sites that are not accessible from their country of residence. If you find yourself abroad and that you want to access the French catalogue of Netflix (and vice versa) then it is possible to install a VPN.
