I use NordVPN when I am downloading films / TV shows / music using Torrents so that the authorities will find it harder to trace a download to my home IP address or that of my phone.

Sometimes a VPN is required or is advisable when streaming matches using a streaming service or site. For example my ISP is BT and I don't really want to stream a BT Sports match over a BT Broadband link :/

Sometimes in the past key streaming sites have been IP blocked by the big service providers on match days. They have only been able to get country-specific bans put in place so the way around it has been to VPN to a destination somewhere outside the ban.

I also use a VPN on the WiFi at work so I can circumvent blocks on things like Netflix etc. enabling me to watch and listen to stuff when I am on a break etc.

In theory you could VPN back into the UK so it appears as if you are not abroad. The trouble is that the BBC seem to spend a load of effort in making sure that traffic from 'known' VPN providers IP addresses are blocked. I have to come OFF VPN at work to watch iPlayer, or I just take the BBC out of the loop altogether and either pre-download the content to my pad to watch, or watch it on a streaming site (see the Sports Donkey thread).

I use my dads Sky on my ipad outside the UK. If i use a VPN it doesn`t work as it detects the vpn. However it works fine without one.

If providers know if your using a VPN and some wont allow you watch unless you turn your VPN off ie Amazon content. Makes me wonder why do I need VPN, as soon all media providers will be using this tracker.

It's not too hard to imagine that providers may well have a dedicated IT team whose job it is to sit there all day signing up to all the different VPN providers and then VPNing and logging into the service they provide (quite likely automated / scripted etc.) They then match the username that their own people logged in with, to the IP address that they are using, and blacklist that IP address (or range of IP addresses).

In doing so the providers would need to be careful to avoid blocking valid users. (Indeed, when I started at my company I found that we were IP blacklisted from the BBC and I had to raise a help ticket with the BBC tech guys online to get it unblocked when I was able to illustrate that it is a UK IP address from a UK office). I'm guessing that the VPN providers must have many different points from which their users 'emerge' from and would be changing them on a regular basis to try and circumvent this.

A game of cat and mouse, if you will?
