Why can’t I watch CBC from abroad?

As you visit the CBC website they check up on your location. Due to copyright rules they are only allowed to broadcast to a Canadian audience, meaning that they use a block to make it unavailable to people trying to access their TV programs and streams from abroad. The solution is to make CBC believe that you are in Canada, and that is what a VPN will do. Your computer will, first of all, be encrypted and then you will get an IP address in the nation of the server that you connect to. Since PureVPN has servers in more than 100 nations they can also provide you with an American IP address and several other IPs, but the most important is that they provide you with Canadian IP, meaning that they will unblock the CBC streams letting you watch what is going on from the entire world.
