How to Unblock Movie 25
If you like movies and you haven’t stumbled across Movie 25 before now, you are going to absolutely kick yourself. If you are already a fan of the site, you are likely to be doing some pointing and laughing right now.
Movie 25 is one of the best online movie streaming sites around. It has a wide range of content, with everything from the latest blockbusters to pretty much every classic film and family favourite you can mention.
All these movies are available to either stream or download as you see fit. And it gets better. The user-friendly site allows you to search for movies by genre, title, release year, ratings and more. It offers a free trailer for the movie on the site, along with lots of information about the picture.
When it comes to the movie itself, the site works as an aggregator, forwarding you to streams available elsewhere on the net. These links are the most reliable of any site of this type I have ever encountered.
Why do I write with such enthusiasm about Movie 25? Well, as a writer I am frequently called upon to write movie reviews and movie-related articles. These often involve having to delve back into the archives and catch up with an unheralded movie from the past with connections to the latest releases.
Before Movie 25, this could be an arduous task. But now, with Movie 25, I have an almost limitless archive of cinematic history to delve into. And having spent many hours watching content, I can confirm that whilst no aggregator site has 100% perfect links, Movie 25 is as good as it gets.
Indeed, there is just one problem with Movie 25 and that is the fact that Hollywood studios are not as keen as I am. Indeed, they have taken steps to block access to Movie 25 in a number of countries on the grounds that it infringes their copyright.
I was mortified when first discovering that Movie 25 was blocked, but I soon found a simple and affordable solution which opened up Movie 25, and any other site which has been censored, no matter where I was located. A VPN.
Why is Movie 25 Blocked?
Movie 25 is blocked because of the Hollywood studio’s desire to maximize their profits at the expense of their customers. Whilst cinema ticket prices skyrocket way over inflation around the world, studios are campaigning hard to stop sites like Movie 25 from providing a service for film aficionado’s like me.
They claim that sites such as Movie 25 infringe upon their copyright. But the claims have a dubious legal basis. As an aggregator site, Movie 25 doesn’t actually host any copyrighted content itself. How they can be directly accused of breaching copyright law is, therefore, a big question.
But studios will not be deterred and they are going further and further in their efforts to block sites like Movie 25. In America, they are also using copyright trolls (copyright lawyers) to threaten users in order to secure financial settlements from them. This is despite little legal grounds for the claims to be made.
How is Movie 25 Being Blocked?
Studios will either liaise directly with Internet Service Providers or else go to court to secure an order to get the site blocked.
Many ISPs, which are often big name media providers themselves, are all too happy to acquiesce to any demand to censor online content on such grounds. Efforts to get sites unblocked tend to fall on far deafer ears.
Where the ISPs do not play ball, studios have no qualms about going to court to force the action they want. Deep pockets and expensive lawyers mean they often get their way.
The result, either way, is that the ISP stops their subscribers from being able to access Movie 25. As almost all internet users connect through an ISP, this is a hugely effective way of online censorship and has proved effective against Movie 25 in the USA, the UK, and elsewhere.
Unless that is, you are using a VPN or Virtual Private Network.
A VPN is an online security and privacy tool which encrypts all of your online traffic and redirects it down a secure tunnel and via an external server.
Using a VPN allows you to evade an ISPs block because your ISP is unable to see where your traffic is going beyond the external server. Connecting to a server in a country where Movie 25 can be accessed should enable you to access the service and enjoy the movies you like to watch no matter where you are.
So, how do you use a VPN to unblock Movie 25? The process is incredibly simple, as I have demonstrated below with my pick of the VPNs to use with streaming services such as Movie 25; ExpressVPN.
How to Use a VPN to Unblock Movie 25
Step 1: Sign up for VPN
So, the simple process begins by visiting the site of your chosen VPN. In my case, that is ExpressVPN and you can visit their site by clicking one of the links on this page.
Once there, make your choice from the different subscription packages they have on offer. All offer excellent value for money, but the annual package is my recommendation. If you are worried about committing for a long period like this, don’t be. ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee so if you are not totally satisfied you will get all of your money back with no questioned asked.
Once you have made your choice, click on the package and follow the simple onscreen instructions to make a payment.
You will find some screenshots of the process of signing up for ExpressVPN below:
Step 2: Download & Install VPN
So, once you have made payment, you will then be invited to download and install the VPN software. This is also a straightforward process. Simply select the right operating system for the device you want to watch Movie 25 on, click on the link, and then follow the onscreen instructions again to download the software.
It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes before the software is downloaded, installed, and ready to use.
Step 3: Connect to A Server
With the software ready to use, open it up (if you haven’t already) and on the main landing page, you will see an option to connect to a server.
Simply choose a server in a country where Movie 25 is not blocked and click connect. It is suggested to choose a server as close to your actual geographic location as possible to ensure the best connection speeds available.
After a few seconds, ExpressVPN should inform you that you are now connected and detail your new IP Address.
