Hulu attempts to block international viewers using VPNs
Hulu has banned TV streaming outside of the US but who can put down the clever minds of users who have managed to find a way out? People always make use of VPNs when it comes to dodging websites and they have been using them for streaming TV as well. The company is not so happy about these unwanted users and wants to get rid of them soon. According to TorrentFreak, the company has resort to the only effective method. They have started to block any user who tried to get the company’s services through a VPN; regardless of the fact that they are from outside the US or from within. Users from within the US have been advised to disable their anonymizer.
There is no specific blockade as of yet and so far Hulu is only looking out for a certain web addresses. They haven’t been looking for the actual VPNs and this has given another way out to many users. If they are using a dedicated VPN address or a smaller provider, then there are chances that they might get past the new restrictions. This isn’t good news for the US users who had been relying on the VPN for the protection of their privacy.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
