Want to Binge O Mecanismo Outside Brazil? Here’s the Hack for the Job!Last Updated by Gray Williams on June 28, 2019
If you know anything about Brazil in the past decade, you’ve heard of Operation Car Wash, the ongoing criminal investigation that has implicated massive oil company Petrobras and many state officials in a money laundering scheme. To date it has seen 93 people convicted and 179 indicted with more than US$1 billion in misappropriated funds.
Sound like the plot to a great TV series? It has become one in “O Mecanismo”, a Brazilian crime drama that premiered in March 2018 on Netflix and has a second season already in the works. The series has an 8.9/10 rating on Internet Movie Database for its ploy loosely based on what is happening or did happen in Operation Car Wash.
The problem with having a brilliant show in just one country on Netflix is that unless you have a Netflix account in that country and are currently residing in that country, you cannot legally watch a show like O Mecanismo.
How does a VPN work?
For the purposes of watching Brazilian Netflix, the objective is to make the website believe the computer attempting to access it is located in Brazil as well. If it doesn’t believe that, it will execute a geoblock against your IP address, forbidding it from ever being used to access Netflix.
A VPN creates a secure tunnel through which all traffic between your Internet-capable device and one at a remote server located in Brazil.
All of your requests will be encrypted and transmitted to the remote server through the tunnel making sure no third party, such as your Internet service Provider, government watchdogs, or cybercriminals can see. The request is decoded at the remote server, where your information is given a new IP address, in this case a Brazilian one, before it is uploaded to the website, in this case Netflix.
The remote server will encrypt the streaming data, send it through the encrypted tunnel, where your computer will decrypt it and make it available for viewing, regardless of whether you are located in Ireland, Indiana, India, or Indonesia.
