Re: [tor-talk] Hulu now blocks Tor

Some DVDs can only be viewed in certain countries, but it is your account, and if there are restrictions, can they be tailored to the address you give them, or do they need to block certain content if you are traveling to another country? If so there are better ways to deal with that than by looking at your IP address.

  They're licensing content from various third-parties, and to get a
better deal (or any deal at all), they're enforcing location
restrictions.  Though they shouldn't bother doing it for people who are
paying by credit card, and if anyone *really* wants to bypass location
restrictions, getting a VPS and setting up their own private VPN is
simple and costs maybe five bucks a month.
