Many TV catch-up websites such as BBC iPlayer, 4oD, and ITV Player require a UK IP address in order to access programmes. LibertyHero lets you choose to use a proxy server located in a range of different countries, such that you’ll appear to be located in that country. Some uber-strict ISPs are known to block users from online video gaming, and VoIP (Voice over IP) communications such as Skype. Just like with Bit-Torrent, LibertyHero bypasses all restrictions by masquerading your traffic as something totally different, allowing you to game and Skype until your heart's content. Many ISPs, workplaces, universities, and governments restrict the use of Bit-Torrent, eMule, Limewire, and Usenet. You may be experiencing a full block, or you may be experiencing reduced transfer speeds - known as traffic shaping. LibertyHero bypasses all restrictions by encrypting your data, masking it as normal secure web page traffic, and then sending it via the LibertyHero servers.
