AT&T TV NOW does not work

Greeting, I am trying the one-week free trial on "Privacy".  I live on the East Coast of the US and I have set the server to New York and my IP address is changed appropriately.

For the most part things seem to work.  One site that doesn't is my AT&T TV NOW account.  Does AT&T TV NOW expect a particular IP address for it to function or is there something else going on?

Many streaming services/websites will not allow the use of a VPN since the content they offer can often differ based on the region it is being accessed from and some services are not available in all countries.  For this reason, many sites like Netflix, Amazon and others will quite often not work with a VPN.

We plan to release a split tunnel feature very soon which should help direct blocked items around the VPN tunnel while allowing the remaining traffic to remain in the tunnel.

Also, for Amazon Prime you may try activating the VPN after you've begun streaming.

 

That would be great!

Which is precisely why such services which rely on geoblocks to control content do their best to block VPNs.  Unfortunately, all they have to do is determine when an IP address belongs to a VPN, then blacklist that IP address, so it is very difficult for VPNs to get around the blocking of such services these days.
