Missing Your Favorite MNCTV Shows? Watch them Anytime with This HackLast Updated by Gray Williams on May 09, 2019
Formerly known as TPI and Televisi Keluarga Indonesia, MNCTV is a popular Indonesian private TV station that has been broadcasting for close to three decades.
It shows educational programs, quiz shows, soap operas, reality TV shows, sporting events, and music programs.
Home of some of Indonesia’s top-rated programs, it is a staple that more than 8 million Indonesians miss out on each year because they live abroad or work in other countries for a majority of the year.
This blog will detail how VPNs work, how to use them to stream MNCTV programming, and what some of the best VPNs in the business are.
What does a VPN do?
A VPN uses networking and encryption technology to give you a safe passageway onto the Internet without fear of being hacked or having your information spied on or stolen. It does this by creating a secure, encrypted ‘tunnel’ through which data passes between your Internet-capable device of choice and a remote server located in another city, state, or even country.
In the case of accessing MNCTV programming, you need a server that is located in Indonesia to provide a workaround to MNCTV’s geo-blocking. When the VPN is established, you type in your web requests as you would in a normal situation, but your requests are first sent to the remote computer. They are decrypted there and assigned an IP address from the country the remote server exists in.
Your requests are then sent to the Internet along with the new IP address. For a website such as MNCT in Indonesia, its security will seek out the identification of the incoming request. When it sees the IP address is also located in Indonesia, it will allow the request to reach the website where you can being selecting what programs you wish to stream. The programs you stream will first head for the remote server. It will take these data packets and encrypt them, sending them through the secure tunnel back to your Internet device. There they will be decrypted.
