Some of them may geo-blocked, need use VPN to unlock. This guide will take you each step of setting up a VPN on your Windows 10 device.

Get a VPN account

Setting up a VPN on Windows 10 requires you having a VPN, no matter a paid VPN or a free VPN. Windows 10 supports VPN protocols include PPTP and L2TP/IPSec. So we choose FlyVPN, which offers these protocols and perform well with Windows 10. You can get a VPN through the follows methods:
  • Use a free VPN trail accounts listed on FlyVPN's website.
  • Register a VPN account. Take advantage of their free VPN trial programs (http://bit.ly/1J2yX0zhttp://bit.ly/1QKvMNg) to get more free days. I have got about one year membership for free through the invitation code program.
  • Subscribe their premium account during this Christmas VPN sale season.

Guide for setup a VPN Client for Windows 10

Once you have a VPN account, here is how you can set up a VPN connection in your Windows 10 device:
1. Download a free VPN Client.
2. Enter the VPN account.
3. Choose "auto" as VPN protocol. Tick "Enable IPSec for L2TP".
4. Connect to the server you need.
5. Click "connect".

Manual Setup a VPN on Windows 10 PC/laptop/mobile/tablet

I personally recommend use VPN Clients, it's more convenient. But if you don't like Client, read on the steps for manually setup VPN on Windows 10:

setup vpn on windows 10

1. Click Start button in the bottom left corner of the screen, under the Places section, click Settings.

2. On the open Settings window, click the Network & Internet entry.

4. Now enter the VPN details:
VPN provider: Windows (built-in)
Connection name: It doesn't matter what you name it, but something descriptive is always best.
Server name or address: Enter one of the servers IP (Remember first login your FlyVPN account on the web.)
VPN type: Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)
The steps for Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol with IPSec (L2TP/IPSec) are very similar, and you should have no trouble following along.

5. Now enter VPN credentials:
Type of sign-in info: User name and password
User name: the account you get from FlyVPN
Password: the account you get from FlyVPN
The User name and Password fields are optional. This means each time you connect to your VPN service, you’ll be prompted to enter your username and password instead of having that information saved.  That's up to you. You can let the system save the user name, but not save the password.
Tick "Remember my sign-in info" and click on Save.

6. Once the new VPN connection is successfully created, back on the Network & Internet window, select VPN category, click the newly created VPN connection from the right. Click the Connect button. It will connect after a while and show you "Connected" status.
You should also be able to monitor your VPN connection status from the Network icon on your taskbar.

How to get a free VPN

It's no need to buy VPNs, free VPNs are enough for the release. We usually use FlyVPN, it offers free VPN servers located in different regions and has no traffic limit. You can get their free accounts through the 4 options:
  • Use their free VPN trail accounts. You can use these accounts 3 times per day. Online time for each free trial VPN connection is limited to 20 minutes.

How to use the VPN

  1. First, go to download VPN page, grab FlyVPN, install it.
  2. Run the program, use the VPN account enter into it.
  3. You are leading to a list of servers, which are organised by location. Choose the New Zealand VPN server. New Zealand is one of the first territories to enter into a new day. So if New Zealand is among the launch countries, go ahead to change your IP to NewZealand.
  4. Don't forget to click the "connect" button.
  5. Now that you have connected to the New Zealand server. Visit Steam, you will now see the correct timer for the release. If Steam still have the same countdown timer like before, head over to google, type the game, and access the store page via your browser.
  6. After unlocking the game, disconnect the VPN and play the game!
Don't worry about the download speed. It's no need to connect to VPN during the whole downloading process. Start download and wait for the main menu to load up, let it download somewhere between 10 to 20 MB when VPN connected. Make sure keep VPN on when at the beginning and at the end of the downloading.

The Steam Christmas sale will come hot on its heels, starting on December 22nd at 10 am and ending on January 4th at 10am. Some newer and hot games will come to Steam at lower price. Besides, we tested and find a China VPN will give even cheaper price for Steam items.

Steam Christmas Sales

Top games will still be highlighted on Steam's front page for 24 - 48 hour spans, but those that are highlighted will stay at their most competitive discount, before and after its featured. Just as important as what's on the front page are the games with huge discounts on holiday: talking in the realm of 70%, 80%, even 90% off.

Besides the holiday discount for Steam games, we can also get cheaper price via using a VPN. Take the new game Rainbow Six Siege for example, by switching my IP address via VPN service, I checked the price set for different regions on Steam, and find I can get a lower price - ¥248($38.39). Compare to the price $59.99 (get with an American IP), it saves about $21. Player who ever buy games on Origin with VPN must be familiar to this method.

How to buy region-locked games on Steam

But some games are region-locked, such as a new item - LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII. Final Fantasy games are region-locked and run-time locked, meaning you'll have to be in the country of purchase to play them. It's unavailable in China, so you are unable to lower its price through a China VPN. What's more, if it's blocked in your region, you need to change your IP to unblock it. If you want to buy a VPN, don't miss the Xmas VPN discount.

How to unblock Japanese Music Video on YouTube

YouTube Red began display geo-restriction messages on videos. Viewers in USA can find YouTube banned a long list of music channels, playlists and uploaded files over its YouTube Red copyrights. That's because they currently can't participate in the YouTube Red service due to rights issues surrounding their content. Connect to a VPN if you find that the content you like is no longer available in YouTube.

Japanese Music Video blocked on YouTube

It's a shock for Japanese and Korean music fans as a good percentage of Japanese & Korean music videos no longer available on YouTube in the US. All the music videos on Sony Japan's channel "sonymusicnetwork" as well as the videos on the official channels of the artists are now unavailable in the US. Companies that do not agree to the YouTube Red policy will have their content geo-restricted. Since YouTube Red is currently only available in the USA, all geo-restrictions only apply within US cyberspace. Trying to access any of the videos will result in the message: "This video contains content from xxx. It is not available in your country." A blog post identifies the following channels and playlists as geo-restricted:
Victor Entertainment (and channels by acts under them like Sakanaction, Southern All Stars, Hoshino Gen, and Leo Ieiri)
Columbia Music Japan (and channels by acts under them like TRUSTRICK, clammbon, and Not yet)
Up-Front (and channels by acts under them like Morning Musume, Juice=Juice, LoVendoЯ, and C-ute)
Pony Canyon (and channels by acts under them like aiko, w-inds., Katahira Rina, and cinema staff)
Teichiku (and channels by acts under them like Sayuri Ishikawa and X4)
Zankyo Record
Yonezu Kenshi
Ling Tosite Sigure
Yasuda Rei
The GazettE
Flying Dog (and channels by acts under like Maaya Sakamoto)
Being (and channels by acts under like B'z, Mai Kuraki, Meiri Alaha, and BREAKERZ)
Danger Crue
Resistar Records
Faith Music

This is not the first time YouTube to do this within a certain region. Not long ago, sports network ESPN has pulled nearly all of its content from YouTube. YouTube bans content in China for over 10 years. Specific media has been geo-blocked in certain regions, such as YouTube banned in Pakistan due to hate speech.

The only way to unblock videos is with a VPN service. It's a good tool to change IP address and get access to blocked contents. The benefit of using a VPN is that it ensures the appropriate level of security to the connected systems while enable you access blocked contents. If you think free VPNs offer slower servers than for paid VPNs or they set restricted on the number of servers you can connect to, and want to get a paid VPN, you can wait for Xmas VPN discount. The VPN sale comes next week.
