Why are streaming sites (such as Netflix, Hulu, and HBO) blocked?

Certain sites (primarily streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, and more) often restrict access based on your geographic location. 

Because of this, they completely block anybody who is using a VPN service. So no matter what VPN service you use, Netflix and the rest will block you.d

How do I prevent this?

There is hope! VirtualShield is one of the few VPN services who offer a specialized service to bypass geographic limitations. Our Unrestricted Streaming add-on allows you to completely bypass these restrictions, and stay protected while surfing these sites.

This means that our out of country customers can access US content no matter where they are in the world. And if you're a frequent traveller, you can take your streaming content with you even if you are in another country.

This service works on all of your favorite devices, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and more:

This add-on also works on Amazon and Android-based Smart TVs. That means you can watch your favorite shows and movies on the big screen, and stay protected at the same time:

Note: If you reside in the United States, the alternative option is you can disconnect from our VPN just while using these sites, and then re-connect once you're done.
