Due to a recent boom in streaming services, people are moving away from cable TV to online streaming platforms. 69% of the people in the US have a subscription to at least one streaming service. Some of the popular names in the industry are Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, and Disney Plus.
While this has helped viewers get the entertainment that they want wherever they are on their smartphones, tablets, etc. there has been a rise in VPN usage by streamers because most of these platforms are geo-restricted.
Although commonly known as online privacy tools, VPNs can also help you improve your streaming experience. These nifty tools encrypt your online activities and traffic which hides your true IP address, keeping your digital presence private.
Because of this, a VPN is very helpful when it comes to streaming as more than 40% of people use a VPN for streaming purposes. read more...

If you are a fan of famous American shows like The 100, The Walking Dead, Criminal Minds, and many more, you will be well aware of the fact that watching American TV outside the US is not easy.

All popular American streaming services and TV channels are geo restricted and can only be watched from inside the US. These websites use IP-detection techniques to determine the IP address of all users before allowing access.
We have good news. You can now watch American TV from abroad using Trust.Zone VPN from anywhere in the world. read more...

Canada has a lot of amazing streaming platforms for binge-watchers. However, nothing can beat American streaming services and US TV. We are not undermining the quality of Canadian TV, but viewers in Canada don’t have access to over 20+ popular US TV channels and streaming sites like HBO Max, Hulu, Crackle, Vudu, and many more.

This often comes as a bit of a shocker to some folks. This is especially the case for those traveling out of Sweden for the first time. If that is your case, sorry, you cannot take Swedish TV with you when you leave the shores of Sweden. Shows like Quicksand and Caliphate are outside your reach when you leave the country.

If you are a fan of Norwegian TV shows, you know it is hard to stay away from them. You probably also know that it is equally hard to access these TV shows when you're abroad.
