Why do streaming sites block VPNs?

More and more streaming websites are using security methods to detect when someone is attempting to access their website with a virtual private network. The best VPN helps protect your privacy online by encrypting your internet activity and rerouting it through a private server, often in a different location.

With a streaming VPN, you can also access streaming content that may otherwise be geo-blocked, or locked to you based on your location. For example, BBC iPlayer is only available to users in the UK, but with a VPN, you can make it appear as if you are in the UK and so access iPlayer’s entire streaming library.
