One problem that all those who fly across nations face frequently is that of web-based geo restrictions. “Content unavailable in your location”– is the message that flashes on the computer and smartphone screens ruining our plans of a peaceful Netflix marathon on the weekends. This is particularly frustrating when you have a paid subscription.
However, this doesn’t mean that you have to bid adieu to your favourite show during your stay overseas. Yes, there’s a way around it!
So, here are five apps that will help you beat geo restrictions and binge watch your favourite movies and series uninterruptedly:
