VPN

VPN-application (an acronym for Virtual Private Network, or virtuaalinen erillisverkko in Finnish) is a piece of software, that allows one browsing in the Internet to virtually change his or her visible location on the web, also known as the IP-address. Every single device that is connected to the Internet has a personal IP address, that his determined by the physical location of the device. This allows everyone to see, where the device’s information traffic is being sent from and where the device is located. But what does this have to do with watching streaming services?

As many of us know, numerous television networks – including the Finnish ones – have their own online streaming services for their scheduled programming. This programming, however, is not always or even often available for everyone to see. Because national broadcasting is very often limited within the borders of each country for licensing reasons, also the Finnish television streams have been geologically blocked from IP-addresses outside its borders. So, if you and your device aren’t physically located in Finland, these broadcasts are not available to you.

This is where the VPN-application steps in. Quality VPN services have their own servers located around the world. By connecting your Internet connection to a such server via easy-to-use software interface, your network connection will change its outgoing IP-address to the server’s physical location. This will unlock the country restrictions for content that might be blocked from outside viewers. The streaming service will assume that you are located within the channel’s broadcasting radius and you will have all their content available to you – and it’s completely 100% legal! Also a major benefit with this sort of connection is that your Internet connection is concealed and private, which will block the view of your browsing from all outside sources; hackers, thieves, authorities and even your own ISP!
