Geoblocking and Global Video Culture

Eds. Ramon Lobato and James Meese
Amsterdam: Institute of Network Cultures, 2016

How do global audiences use streaming platforms like YouTube, Netflix
and iPlayer? How does the experience of digital video change according
to location? What strategies do people use to access out-of-region
content? What are the commercial and governmental motivations behind

Geoblocking and Global Video Culture explores the cultural
implications of access and circumvention in an age of VPNs. Featuring
seventeen chapters from diverse critical positions and locations –
including China, Iran, Malaysia, Turkey, Cuba, Brazil, USA, Sweden and
Australia – the book offers a wide-ranging analysis of region control
in digital media industries.

Available as a free PDF, EPUB, ISSUU, and print-on-demand book from
