Why can't I watch Netflix / Rai / ViaPlay / CMORE / ABC /other channels or streaming services with F-Secure FREEDOME VPN?


Netflix and some other streaming services have blocked the usage of VPN, including FREEDOME. This can be due to local content agreements that does not allow the program to be viewed outside the country where the rights have been sold to. Here is a Youtube video which explains more about why it has been blocked. 

You might be able to use these streaming services while using a different location on FREEDOME, but we cannot guarantee that. 

While unfortunate, there is nothing we can do to directly prevent a content provider from blocking our addresses if they choose to do so.
