It’s fairly incredible when you think about it. I could sit here in a township called Stanstead on the USA/Canadian boundary and watch Canadian TV online without a problem. If I stroll down the street and cross the border line with my laptop and join from a Starbucks down the road and I am blocked.
This is because simple, by strolling a few hundred yards and joining in the US aspect of the border I have also altered my digital address. In the North I use a Canadian ISP and so have a Canadian IP address, in the South my digital nationality turns me into an American.
The difference may appear insignificant but it really makes a massive difference to what I can do online. Most major websites command what you see on their site and will look up your location as you connect. It might be incovenient for me as I now can not watch the local news on CTV but there are a tons of edges also. By way of example when in canada, I get blocked attempting to see anything on Hulu or Pandora.com, these work totally with an US IP address.
Although it functions easily enough there’s an easier method to change your addresses without transferring location. It is possible to use a proxy or VPN server to hide your real place and furnish a fake one instead. Just how this works is fairly easy, instead of linking straight to a site you instead relay your petitions through a proxy server. All the tips is then forwarded by the proxy to your browser, the webside never sees your real place only the address of the proxy. This means that if you have a selection of proxies available in different states, then you can switch between them whenever you want.
It Is particularly useful for ex-pats or individuals who travel a lot for their work. Visualize you can link from a wifi point in an Italian airport, click on a Canadian proxy server and do your home banking then watch the hockey results. Eventually, practice your French by watching a few shows on the French media station M6 Replay.
