Thank god I saw this. I vehemently dislike the idea of paying VPNs.

I forgot proxies existed for some reason; I used them in the past.

    Tons of people use VPNs for region restricted services like Netflix

    I was going to criticize your choice of units there, but after thinking about it some I decided this was probably correct and that my criticisms were in the wrong. Touche, you win again.

    If I were a media corporation, I would make a post like this to dissuade people from using a VPN

    There’s no need. They’re using one of a half-dozen obscure commercial services that mapped out all the exit point IP addresses and have blocked them half a decade ago.

      Not true. There’s plenty of VPNs that have IP addresses that aren’t blocked by streaming services. The one I use has plenty that still work with Netflix, etc.
