It’s no secret that the most devastating words in the English langue are “Sorry, Netflix is not currently available in your country.” However, as frustrating as they can be, they don’t need to be fatal. It is possible to quickly and easily get access to US streaming websites and other geographically restricted content from Norway with a VPN - and we’re going to show you how to do it.
Letting websites determine what content you have access too based on your geographic location is a thing of the past. Hotspot Shield VPN is a quick, simple application that you can download in seconds. Once installed, it allows you to access blocked web content by making it appear as if your computer is connecting from the United States. Getting a US IP address will unblock popular shows from Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, and more.
When you connect to a website via a VPN “Virtual Private Network” your computer isn’t actually connecting to the website. Instead, it operates as part of a network of computers that will have an IP address corresponding to the location of its servers. If those servers are in the United States, then the connection appears to the coming from the US - because it is. Because Hotspot Shield’s services are located in the United States, it means that a Norway VPN allows you too to appear as if you are connecting from the US.
The way this connection works is that instead of making a direct request to a website, your computer requests that network connect with the website - and then send the information back to you. In the case of Hotspot Shield VPN, the request comes from a US based IP address, and then there is an internet rerouting of the information within the network to your non-US IP address. This is a barrier that is created between you and the website, making your true location unknowable and allowing you access restricted content.
With Hotspot Shield VPN, you can access blocked content via PC, Mac, Windows Phone, Android and iPhone. There is also the option for a browser extension for both Chrome and Firefox.
