My plan as well as it's been for about the last 8-9 years. I've now switched to using the PureVPN addon in a web browser and then set up the browser to not send any Geo information. Connect to a server in the UK and then launch the Eurosport player. I guess I've had a Eurosport subscription for long enough that I've been grandfathered in around the proof of UK residency.In the US--yea. Because the ASO are turds and only sell their rights to inarguably the worst sports broadcasters in the USA...NBC.
Or VPN outside the US and watch on Eurosport or GCN etc. That is my plan.
Yea. Won't work.IOS 15 is going to have an embedded VPN?
Yes you can use a VPN and GCN+ do it all the time. Also all Brit channelsYea. Won't work.
Phones/tablets are location aware, and GCN etc cannot be fooled into thinking you're somewhere else with a VPN. VPN spoofing location is an inelegant whole that companies could plug if they wanted to. Fortunately companies are lazy, and there's minimal to no gain for a lot of trouble to do so.
You can...just not on location-aware-devices. Like phones etc.Yes you can use a VPN and GCN+ do it all the time. Also all Brit channels
Been doing it for years.
The point of VPN is to secure your traffic from interception. Especially for people working from home, needing to work-with sensitive server-hosted data. Hiding your IP addy from being used casual geo-tracking is only a minor tertiary side benefit people figured out, when that became useful with idiotically geolocked content. Apple is adding it, to pretend to care about privacy, and also to try to push the devices like iPad as being for work and not 'just dicking around on the couch'.What about a wifi ONLY ipad? I'm thinking wifi only is not location aware? Isn't that the point of the built in vpn? why else add it? You bring up good points Marc...
It is still a VPN--I don't know how vetted their encryption practices will be.Thanks Marc. Essentially the ios "vpn" won't be a true vpn but will it work so I don't have to subscribe to another service? Essentially there no such thing as a vpn because of the ip? Internet is just the new cable platform. Parsed, edited, throttled for private profit. Others pushed into the back unless you're in favor by isp's, cellular carriers. A commercially driven only enterprise under the guise of impartiality. Can't decide which was worse. Citizens united or the end of new neutrality...
I run a VPN on my iPhone,iPad and AppleTV.It is still a VPN--I don't know how vetted their encryption practices will be.
The lesson here is that geoblocking by IP address is extremely crude. It speaks volumes about corporate laziness that it even works on any web browser anymore to anonymize location.
