3. Get More for Your Money
One of the most popular uses of VPNs is the ability to gain access to media that would otherwise be locally unavailable. While many streaming services tend to have standardized international subscription prices, that does not ensure that users are getting equivalent value for money. Netflix’s British offering, for example, may contain a far greater selection of programs than their American equivalent.
By switching between countries, customers can use VPNs to access shows in different regions. So not only does it allow Joe USA to watch his favourite British period drama, but it increases the value of his subscription to his streaming platform of choice. With far more shows to choose between, it also decreases the chances of needing to pay additional costs to watch shows not featured on that streaming service.
Furthermore, VPNs grant users access to other online money-saving tools that their local government or internet providers prohibit.
