The gap between Australian and American streaming service libraries are continuing to grow, as more and more networks are moving towards creating streaming services of their own. To best get around this, many Aussies are taking to VPNs - and Black Friday is definitely the best time to buy.
Following its 73% off sale at Halloween, PureVPN is continuing to bring the bargains to Australians this year with a whopping 88% off.
Instead of paying $USD10.95 a month (or $USD49 a year), PureVPN is offering a Black Friday deal where you can purchase five whole years of access for just $108. That works out to $1.80 per month.
The service is designed to enable users to access geo-blocked overseas sites, all from an easy to use desktop client. It also boasts Firefox and Chrome integration and high speed connections for lag-free streaming of overseas content. (You can find the full list of PureVPN's features here, which includes DNS protection and P2P support for users who like to torrent and their privacy.)
Marvel's Black Panther appeared on US Netflix last month to much jubilation and fanfare. If you're based in Australia, don't bother searching for it - the movie isn't available on the local service. (Boo!)
It's the latest in a long line of movies that Netflix doesn't own the streaming rights to in Australia. Fortunately, it's still possible to access these movies via a little VPN jiggery-pokery. Here are 99 movies exclusive to US Netflix - and how to watch them in Australia.
