Geoblocking, or geo-restriction, is the practice of limiting access to certain content based on the geographical location of the user. As a service provider, you may need to geoblock content for several reasons. They include:
- Licensing and Copyright Restrictions: Content distribution rights are negotiated on a country-by-country basis. Geoblocking enforces these agreements by restricting access to content based on the user's geographical location.
- Legal and Regulatory Compliance: Different countries have varying laws and regulations related to content distribution, such as censorship or age restrictions. Here, geoblocking ensures compliance by preventing access to content that violates local laws.
- Pricing and Revenue Optimization: Video content may be priced differently across regions based on market demand and purchasing power. Using geoblocking, you can offer tailored pricing plans and content packages in different regions.
- Exclusive Content and Release Windows: Geoblocking also ensures that exclusive content remains accessible only to authorized regions or during specific release windows, maximizing its impact and viewership.
- Managing Distribution Costs: Your every minute of video dissemination counts. Geoblocking reduces data transfer and bandwidth costs by limiting content delivery to regions where demand is high or where the service is officially available.
While geoblocking serves these purposes, it can also frustrate users who cannot access desired content due to their location.
