Netflix и Китай се справи с VPN ползване?

Post Icon

Няколко новини хванал окото ни през последния месец, both involving VPN’s. The first is news that Netflix е бил помолен да се забрани използването на VPN of their service by individuals using to get around regional content locking. The second is an увеличение на ограниченията, засягащи VPN потребители в Китай. In both cases, it appears that personal VPN’s are taking some lumps. While this is to be expected with any growing technology, it’s a bit depressing to see the VPN technology getting a bad wrap. For users, this is another example of the ever changing landscape on the internet. It seems each month, и всяка година, Потребителите гледат технология на кълновете нагоре (и се нарязани надолу) in a variety of different ways.

First up are the claims that Netflix is under pressure to reduce VPN access to its streaming media service. For expatriates abroad, и една голяма част от потребителите на Netflix…this could be catastrophic. TorrentFreak picked up this story in the Fall of 2014, и куп новини обекти избяга с него, включително Forbes. In the months following the news, Netflix направи изявление, като заяви, че слуховете не са верни, и те не са имали планове да блокира потребители VPN from accessing the service. But if you read their statements carefully, можете да видите, че Netflix се предприемат действия срещу VPN е, per its policy and contracts with the content owners. Обаче, те да са предприели някакви “специални усилия” to outright ban VPN’s. So glass half-full we suppose. But what is a user to do? Sit around and hope their service isn’t the one who gets chopped?

Ами за начало, можете да погледнете на някои данни, за да се види, че Netflix няма да изрична забрана по всяко време VPN скоро. They can’t, they have too many users who fall into the category. According to internet data analytics firm, GlobalWebIndex, Netflix има нещо подобно 30 Милиона потребители в чужбина, virtually all of them using a VPN of some sort to connect. By their estimates, 20 Million на 30 Million са вътре Китай и очевидно извън областните границите на договори Netflix с собствениците на медии (като Foxtel, например). While this is welcome news, и указание, че Netflix ще трябва да се действа внимателно, ако иска да запази своята плащат потребителска база, it is not a silver bullet. Speaking of China

VPN Cat and Mouse Games

Също така подчертава и новите предизвикателства пред личните VPN услуги е скорошно ход от страна на Китай да увеличи ограниченията за тяхното “Great Firewall”. In January of this year, новинарски медии се раздвижи, при СЪОБЩЕНИЯТА, че Китай отряза много популярни VPN услуги като StrongVPN, Astrill, and Goldenfrog VyprVPN. Since just about everyone with an internet enabled device in China uses a VPN, this made pretty big news. Some small VPN services escaped unscathed, and the big services were able to restore access within a day or two. Още, тя изглежда като трудни времена.

VPN users are likely in for some cat-and-mouse games down the road. These examples with Netflix and China are confirmation of what many have thought for some time: personal VPN will soon feel the pressure too. That goes for DNS services as well too, unfortunately. Ultimately we are seeing more restrictions, and it’s coming from all over. In the case of Netflix it’s the content owner/licensor, and in the case of China it’s obviously the government. In either case we are seeing an increase in focus to personal VPN services and also an increase in restrictions aimed at reducing their effectiveness.

Препоръчваме ви да се отделя специално внимание на информацията на доставчика на услуги за поддръжка на VPN, and those that find themselves with second or third tier providers may find themselves on the outside looking in. Котка и мишка игри са склонни да отнеме време и ресурси, нещо по-малките фирми не могат да имат; which might bode well for the big guys. The drawback being the big guys can be easier to spot (мисля, IP и трафик). Just look at what happened to Astrill, VyprVPN, and StrongVPN. All pay services confirmed issues in China. As of this writing, всички 3 were back up and functioning. Както казахме,, welcome to the new cat-and-mouse. Отново, no clear victories here. Just more battles
