Title: Secureline geo block on Yahoo 7 content?
Post by: kieran11 on April 15, 2017, 02:52:31 PM
hi,
I receive out of region geo block warning when trying to view content on yahoo7 tv in Australia.

Connecting to the Avast Melbourne server using secureline, I can see some content from similar Australian tv providers such as abc.com.au. But I receive similar geo block on other tv providers also.

Avast secureline doesn't appear in the recommended vpn's on this Australian tv providers website.
Should I try using a different vpn provider from the recommended list?

Anyone able to help?, to check whether this is my config. or the avast vpn being restricted.

Noob vpn user.

Secureline doesn't block anything.
The site you are trying to visit could do so.
And there are many more ways to check your location than just the IP.
Nothing you can do about it.

You said the same thing when BBC iplayer was blocking Secureline last week. A simple change of IP Addresses from Avast sorted it out.

What I said is still true.

The TC like other users come here looking for help because SecureLine is being blocked for what they want to use it for. You give them the impression that it's game over and the product is now useless for them when all that is needed is an IP change from Avast. If anything you're turning people away from using SecureLine.

IP change only works till the site/server is blocking the new one too.
If people get the impression that it is "game over" they have a lack of knowledge when it comes to things like this.
