Telus and VPN

To all my fellow traveIers.... everyone enjoying the fact that Telus shut down VPN access to Optik TV on February 13? This is ridiculous. We are paying for this service, we are using a Canadian VPN, why should we be denied access. 

Telus indicated it's service providers asked for this and I think that is not truthful.

 

Why was this post made read only so no one could reply. Are we being censored?

So merging similar threads like has been done was not an option? I realise there are 3-4 running threads on topic, merge them.

It was likely due to the fact there's an existing discussion on the topic and users would reply to it and then add a whole new separate post on top of that reply to the original. People need to ask themselves. Which one looks like it needs more attention. A brand new post with few or no replies, or an existing one with many replies. That existing discussion, which does include a response from at least one Telus employee is still open and anyone can reply to it. So no, no one is being censored.

I agree, I’m frequently traveling out of Canada for work and can’t access my TELUS TV even with my VPN set to Canada.

I don’t see why this is an issue for TELUS and what they’re trying to protect themselves from by denying paying subscribers access to the platform?

Maybe they are working on an Add-on (read more fees) that will allow access to their content so long as the VPN is theirs....

This topic has cooled down. I suspect many have accepted the new situation, and perhaps many have found the new workaround and of course will not post it. VPN has gone the way of the dodo.
