If you're trying to view the latest Netflix show while traveling overseas, or you want to watch a show that's only available on Netflix in other countries, you're in for a tough time. But with a VPN service and a bit of persistence, you should be able to see most of what you want to watch, no matter where you are.It's easy to assume that the video streaming services we use every day are the same everywhere on earth, but that's simply not true. What's available on streaming services, in particular, can be wildly different from country to country. That's true not only of Netflix, but also of Amazon Video, Hulu, and Sling.That's because streaming services like Netflix make agreements with other media companies to supply movies and TV in specific markets. A great example is Star Trek: Discovery. In the US and Canada, you need a CBS All Access account to boldly go where no one has gone before. Most of the rest of the world, however, can enjoy Discovery without signing up for yet another streaming service because it's easily available from Netflix.

Hi-Res audio: It’s all about a maturing market

Article | May 21, 2021

Music streaming contrasts sharply with video streaming. While the video marketplace is characterised by unique catalogues, a variety of pricing and diverse value propositions music streaming services are all at their core fundamentally the same product. When the market was in its hyper-growth phase and there were enough new users to go around, it did not matter too much that the streaming services only had branding, curation and interface to differentiate themselves from each other. Now that we are approaching a slowdown in the high-revenue developed markets, more is needed. Which is where Hi-Res comes in.
