Worldwide content – not available worldwide

The secret to accessing sports, music streaming sites, and TV shows unavailable in your region? You guessed it – VPN can help.

Have you ever tried to watch your favorite show and received a message saying: “This content is not available in your country”? That’s geo-blocking – and it’s a way for movie distributors, streaming services and broadcasters to restrict access to their content. This restriction is based on your IP address, which shows your location and can be easily tracked. Based on your location, you can only access movies and programming available in that region.

    How can a VPN help to access worldwide content? 

    If you want to keep up to date with your favorite show on holiday or want to watch a foreign movie not available in your country, a VPN such as Avira Phantom VPN can help you view the content you enjoy. With just a few clicks you can change your location to one of 38 servers around the world and access movies, programs, live sports and music via on-demand, streaming and catch-up services such as:

    • HBO Now, Hulu Plus, Amazon instant video, Starz, CBS All Access
    • ITV Player, All 4, 5 On Demand, STV Player
    • NBC Sports, ESPN, PGA Live Tour, FOX Sports, Eurosport
    • Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, Google Play Music

    If you want to travel light and still enjoy worldwide content, don’t forget Avira Phantom VPN can be installed on your iOS or Android tablet or smartphone – no need to take your laptop on holiday.

    Only 24% of internet users worldwide can use the internet without limitations.
