Netflix i Kina slamanje VPN korištenja?

Post Icon

Nekoliko vijesti su uhvatili naše oči tijekom proteklog mjeseca, both involving VPN’s. The first is news that Netflix je zatražio da se zabrani korištenje VPN of their service by individuals using to get around regional content locking. The second is an povećanje ograničenja koja utječu VPN korisnicima unutar Kine. 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, i svake godine, Korisnici su gledajući tehnologije nicati (i dobiti posječeno) 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, i mnoge korisnici Netflix…this could be catastrophic. TorrentFreak picked up this story in the Fall of 2014, i hrpa vijesti poslovnice vodio s njom, uključujući Forbes. In the months following the news, Netflix je priopćio su glasine nisu istinite, i nisu imali planove za zabranu VPN korisnika from accessing the service. But if you read their statements carefully, možete vidjeti da je Netflix ne poduzme mjere Protiv VPN-a, per its policy and contracts with the content owners. Međutim, nisu poduzete bilo “Poseban napor” 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?

Pa za početak, možete pogledati neke podatke da se vidi da Netflix neće se izravno zabraniti VPN-a bilo prije. They can’t, they have too many users who fall into the category. According to internet data analytics firm, GlobalWebIndex, Netflix je nešto poput 30 Milijuna korisnika u inozemstvo, virtually all of them using a VPN of some sort to connect. By their estimates, 20 Milijuna 30 Milijun su u Kini i očito izvan regionalnih granica Netflix ugovora s vlasnicima medija (kao Foxtel, na primjer). While this is welcome news, i naznaka da Netflix će morati djelovati oprezno, ako želi sačuvati svoj plaćati korisničke baze, it is not a silver bullet. Speaking of China

VPN Cat and Mouse Games

Također ističući nove izazove osobne VPN usluge je nedavno akciju Kini povećati ograničenja na svojim “Great Firewall”. In January of this year, mediji su zujanje s najavama da će Kina je odsječen mnoge popularne VPN usluge, kao što su 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. Još, to izgleda kao teška vremena pred.

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.

Preporučujemo vam platiti zatvoriti pozornost na svoje VPN informacije o podršci davatelja usluga, and those that find themselves with second or third tier providers may find themselves on the outside looking in. Mačka i miša igre imaju tendenciju da se vrijeme i resurse, nešto manje tvrtke ne mogu imati; which might bode well for the big guys. The drawback being the big guys can be easier to spot (mislim IP i promet). Just look at what happened to Astrill, VyprVPN, and StrongVPN. All pay services confirmed issues in China. As of this writing, sve 3 were back up and functioning. Kao što smo rekli, welcome to the new cat-and-mouse. Opet, no clear victories here. Just more battles
