Streaming blocked content overseas has always been about setting up a VPN, but sites like Netflix claim they're about to start cracking down on VPN users. How-To Geek points out that one way around that is through a unique IP address. Basically, you'll still run Netflix through a VPN, but you'll need to get a dedicated IP address from that VPN service. VPNs tend to use a shared VPN IP, which is easier for services like Netflix to identify and block. A dedicated VPN IP is much more private and harder for a streaming service to identify. A lot of different VPN services offer dedicated IP addresses on their paid plans, including popular options like TorGuard and PureVPN. Chances are, Netflix will figure out a way to block this as well, but in this game of cat and mouse it will be all about staying one step ahead if you want access to that sweet restricted content. Head over to How-To Geek for the full details.
