TV & Film
We’re changing our viewing habits in terms of the way that we access TV & Film content. Gone are the days where you need to wait for the latest episode of your favourite drama. Online video on demand is the new black, however, many of the new sites restrict access (or catalogues) to certain territories (this is called GEOBLOCKING). This can be really frustrating if you are travelling overseas and want to get your fix of the latest TV or films on your favourite site.
That’s where we come in. Our VPN solution allows you appear to be somewhere else, and ‘hey presto’, Goodbye Geoblocking errors…. Hello TV & Films ..
Is it legal ? Yes, absolutely. But don’t take our word for it, check out this article by our friends at Lifehacker, which details the legalities of bypassing geoblocks using a VPN

Q: Many Australians use a VPN to access Netflix in the US. Is it illegal for me to use a VPN to access Netflix?
- The Copyright Act does not make it illegal to use a VPN to access overseas content.
- While content providers often have in place international commercial arrangements to protect copyright in different countries or regions, which can result in ‘geoblocking’, circumventing this is not illegal under the Copyright Act.
This section of the site will give you hints & tips + our recommendations to help you get the best out of your VanishedVPN service to access TV & Film content.
