Russian Ip Address for Russian Tv & Websites

You can use a Russian IP address to access Russian TV & websites from abroad. You don't actually have to be in Russia, or to be Russian to do this. This is done with a virtual private network.

VPNs are typically used by people trying to 'hide' their IP address. Though 'hiding' sounds negative, like you've got something that should be hidden, VPNs are not always used for being sneaky or doing bad things.

For example, many businesses use VPNs. They use VPNs to connect to public internet, but at the same time protect their private information. They certainly wouldn't want competitors or hackers knowing about their personal finances and business plans. Schools also use VPNs to allow students and teacher to access school servers from outside campus. I've got a friend who researches brain stuff, and he uses a VPN to do just that. Even the military uses VPNs to encrypt and send data over long distances.

So what does this have to do with someone who wants a Russian IP address?

Well, first you need VPN servers in Russia. These can be provided by a VPN service. VPN services will typically have VPN servers in different countries around the world. Not all will have VPN servers in Russia, but some will. By signing into a VPN server in Russia, you are assigned a 'virtual' IP address from Russia, AKA, a Russian IP address.

For other websites, including TV streaming websites, they will only see your Russian IP. Though it is possible to detect this type of anonymous IP address, streaming websites usually don't block VPN access. They will however, block proxy access, so a Russian proxy service isn't always a good alternative to Russian VPNs. Other users of course will not have any kind of anonymous IP detecting software, so to them, you will look like you're in Russia.

The most obvious advantage of having a Russian IP address is that you'll be able to unblock websites that are only available in Russia. As I mentioned before, these are going to probably be TV and movie streaming sites. However, there are some other Russia-Only websites like P2P and other free downloading sites that the US and UK are working hard to shut down. Even if it hasn't been banned or shut down in your country, having a Russian IP generally loosens the rules of the internet.

A VPN service will usually offer PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN. For basic IP changing features, go for PPTP VPN. You can use it on Android, iOS, Mac, Linux, Windows, and Symbian operating systems. For more encryption and privacy, you can use L2TP for smartphones and OpenVPN for laptops/desktops. For VPN use on internet TVs and gaming consoles like Xbox and PS3, you're going to need a VPN router or to hook your device up to your laptop (with the VPN installed on your laptop.
