Many websites restrict their content to particular countries. This means that you will never be able to download content from abroad without a VPN to bypass the restrictions. For example, unless you live in America, you won’t be able to watch television and movies through Hulu. If you live anywhere but the United Kingdom, you are not allowed to watch the BBC iPlayer. Geographical restrictions can be particularly annoying when traveling, because you can suddenly find yourself locked out of your usual websites. You may not be able to shop online or do your banking, for example. In all these cases, you will need to bypass the geographical restrictions before you can browse as you please.
