What Are We Looking Forward To?

GoodFellas (1990)

A mob crime classic directed by Martin Scorsese in the early 1990’s, GoodFellas is an adaptation of the 1985 non-fiction book “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Scorsese. The movie depicts the rise and fall of mob associate Henry Hill and his friends and family from 1955 to 1980. Don’t miss Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta in what is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in the gangster genre.

Elite (Season 3)

Elite is a racy Spanish  teen show that has captured audiences from all over the globe. The series follows three underprivileged pupils who join Las Encinas, a private school attended by the children of the privileged and wealthy, when a murder takes place. The mystery of who killed Marina (María Pedraza) begins to unfold, as well as the events leading up to her death.

Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

Silver Linings Playbook is a romantic comedy-drama film, adapted from Matthew Quick’s 2008 novel “The Silver Linings Playbook”. Former teacher Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) moves back in with his parents after losing his job, and being released from a mental institution. Wanting to rebuild his life and reconcile with his ex-wife, things get a little complicated when Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence). She offers to help him reconnect with his wife, but only if he will do something very important for her in exchange. 

Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C. J. Walker (Season 1)

Self Made” stars Academy Award Winner, Octavia Spencer, in the untold, true story of black hair care pioneer and entrepreneur Madam C. J. Walker. The series highlights how she overcame post-slavery racial and gender biases, rivalries and personal betrayals, tumultuous marriages and family issues to eventually become America’s first black, self-made female millionaire. The movie was inspired by “On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam CJ Walker”, written by A’Lelia Bundles, Walker’s great-great-granddaughter.

Unorthodox (Season 1)

Unorthodox” is the story of a young ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman who leaves her arranged marriage and religious community in New York to start a new life abroad in Berlin.

How to Stream Media Anywhere with a Secure VPN

Fans around the world rejoiced when Netflix announced it would expand service to 130 additional countries, making the streaming video giant available in almost every country (except for China).

Their bubble was soon after burst, however, when they discovered Netflix wouldn’t be including the full catalog in those countries. Content licenses are mainly to blame for the gap between countries’ catalogs, as studios and production companies stipulate where their content can be streamed. However, customers can take matters into their own hand — even before the global rollout, Netflix subscribers living abroad used VPNs (virtual private networks) to evade the geographic restrictions on streaming services like Netflix.

Why Virtual Private Networks?

VPN providers supply the software and servers needed to route an Internet connection through a proxy location, making it appear to Netflix as though the user is somewhere else. ExpressVPN is one such provider with hundreds of servers scattered across 78 countries. It offers apps, media consoles and routers with every subscription, and each server is optimized for web streaming for unlimited bandwidth.

An Imminent Ban on VPNs?

Shortly after its global roll-out, the company announced it would take steps to stop VPN users. While we’ve yet to see exactly what Netflix will do, it’s certain to be an uphill battle; the company can’t tell the difference between someone connecting from a VPN and someone connecting directly without knowing each specific VPN server’s IP address.

For Netflix, blocking VPNs will be a reluctant necessity to appease content publishers. Blocking VPN servers one by one is likely to result in a costly game of cat and mouse – Hulu attempted a similar ban in 2014 and gave up in defeat after less than a year.

Because Netflix actually gains from letting VPNs slip through the cracks, critics speculate if and when it will throw in the towel on such a profitless endeavor.

More Benefits than Just Netflix

Aside from unblocking Netflix, VPNs give users a slew of added security and other features. All traffic is encrypted and anonymous, so ISPs and hackers can’t monitor user activity. VPNs can also speed up streaming services in places that throttle bandwidth, because censors can’t identify the traffic; location restrictions on Spotify, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, and more can all be easily accessed with a VPN.

ExpressVPN goes the extra mile when it comes to user privacy by never logging or monitoring user activity. On top of that, the company is based in the British Virgin Islands, beyond the legal jurisdiction of the US, UK, and EU. The right VPN provider can significantly boost a user’s privacy protection. If you value your privacy, or even if you just want to unblock geo-restricted content, you need a VPN.
