Is a VPN still a great solution for streaming?

VPN technology and the market has grown and matured. But are they still relevant in today's time? Read this article to know where VPN usage stands in today's time and where all it finds usage.

Technologies are associated with computers, which were invented in the middle of the last century. But the digital era or digital revolution began three decades ago when the Internet connected all information and devices into a giant network. The importance of the Internet is compared to the invention of the railway, the car, or electricity. The Internet has turned the computer and other digital devices into a communication center. An enormous amount of information is found on the Internet and, for instance, today mobile devices have everything in one - telephone, videophone, radio, TV, camera, video and audio players, etc. As a result, people no longer have to pay an enormous fee for shows, read a book while traveling, sit on the couch and look at one screen. What is it about? Yes, the streaming services, apps on devices, unlimited Internet access provide us with an opportunity to entertain ourselves in the most convenient way. The streaming services save our time, money, ensure mobility and access to any form of information. However, some streaming services often suffer from copyright restrictions. That's why VPN is still the best solution for streaming. Some streaming services with VPNs are presented in this article too.

Netflix services

Netflix is a company that boasts a long history. It started its activities in 1997. Back then, a company introduced a controversial idea to rent cheap, impressively packaged DVDs through the mail. Finally, in 2010, Netflix moved its existing catalogue of movies directly to the Internet, and a couple of years later introduced its first original series. In other words, the company has shaken up the video entertainment industry. Streaming has made it possible to tell more complex and diverse stories in a more convenient form. However, TV show and movie licensing agreements determine in which regions content is available. Using a VPN to access Netflix, your IP address and your location are hidden. As a result, you can watch Netflix content that is available to all regions globally.

Spectrum services

Spectrum is an American OTT service owned by Charter Communications. OTT (over-the-top) is a media service offered directly to users via the Internet. Spectrum offers cable TV, Internet packages, and phone service all in one. Also, the service offers HBO Max, YouTube, and Netflix services. In conclusion, Spectrum is an internet service provider and an online streaming service. That's why Spectrum also encounters issues related to copyright laws. As a result, users often suffer from geo-blocking – the limitation of users' access to the Spectrum content based on users' physical location. If you want to go around these geo-blocks and reach all information without any restrictions, use a VPN with Spectrum.

Kodi app

Another popular streaming services app is Kodi. Users often install Kodi on their devices to stream the content they want. Kodi is a media manager. Kodi let you listen to music, watch movies, enjoy YouTube, watch some national news, etc. Kodi also organizes your media, for instance, creating favorites, playlists, movie directories, and much more. You can also play games on Kodi and watch or record live TV. However, everything you stream is visible and available for third parties, your Internet Service Provider, and the government. So, the best way to surf safely on the Internet is to use a VPN with the Kodi app.

All in all, streaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment today and VPNs can even make your streaming more convenient and fun. If you use a VPN, you can access all content from Spectrum, Netflix, and Kodi globally. It means that you have an opportunity to see other regions' movies and shows from your country.
