Are You a Big Fan of SBT? Here’s How to Watch it From AnywhereLast Updated by Gray Williams on May 08, 2019
Sistema Brasileiro de Televisao (SBT) has always been on the cutting edge of technology in the world’s fourth-largest country.
You can watch it any number of ways from cable and satellite service to streaming media via smartphones to smart TVs to video on demand and YouTube.
Networks geo-block content to prevent anyone from seeing what its own customers are paying for, either through natural fees for cable or through advertising
How does geo-blocking work?
Geo-blocking works by taking the user’s geographical location and check its IP address against a blacklist or a whitelist, which signifies if it can be approved to view certain content.
Most networks use geo-blocking to restrict abuse of copyright or trademark laws. A lot of this is based on the difference between territorial and national laws between countries.
How to avoid geo-blocking
There are two ways to avoid geo-blocking and watch current television shows. One is to use bittorrent software, the other is to use a virtual private network (VPN).
Bittorrent software walks the tightrope of legality. The software itself is not a problem, but sites that use it are in an eternal struggle with lawyers and law enforcement about sharing copyrighted music, TV shows, movies, and more, without permission.
VPN, on the other hand, protects you against government interference by encrypting your connection to give you complete anonymity. The VPN connects your computer to one in the jurisdiction you plan on streaming content from and provides you with an IP address that should allow you to stream content.
What makes a good VPN?
There are several things to look for when searching for a VPN. First and foremost is to make sure it supports the platform you are interested in. Most VPNs support Windows and its products but VPNs for MACs or VPNs for iPhones are not as easy to find. If you are using your VPN to torrent or stream programming, there are several functions and features that should be included.
