NIA is the national immigration agency... they're the ones you deal with when getting ARC's and stuff... I am just saying that the world isn't ready for free movement of people, things, and information because every country has institutions like this to limit such freedoms.

I guess Taiwan is considered to be a "developed country" so they release films and movies at the same time as the US, but what I mean with region coding is that they do this for other countries that are less developed.

I do not know why they suddenly started not unlocking DVD players... I have not used them in a long time and now I get my movies through the internet because its far easier than ordering from Amazon or something.

Yeah it just sucks

TW is still good compared to China. In China, the sites in China are blocked from outside and sites outside will be blocked from inside...... lol

nothing proxy and VPN won't fix.

Well average computer users just can't deal with it so I guess Geo-blocking gets the job done whatever the purpose

But you don't buy them do you? I can't blame you, even if you want to they just don't want your money.
That is really a novel concept.. Turn away..., no, totally turn off loyal customers just because they cross national borders.

I still use DVD's as rental and I do buy them. It's still cheaper than movies on demand (MOD).

Get the Hola! extension for your browser. Geo-blocking gone. Helps make the Internet the way it was meant to be: free from national boundaries - a border-free parallel world.

Sometimes they spot it ... just reset to get another connection.

If you just want music, Spotify is now available in Taiwan.

Watching through VPNs seems like super slow though (quality is bad)... So am I using wrong VPN?
I'm thinking of Apple TV or Roku, but how you use VPN on these (never used these boxes so sorry if it's simple question)?
