Yeah but plenty of shows are Geo-Blocked outside of the US. Degrassi was. That doesn't stop folks in the US from watching.
See replies from jjose712 and nanii. I am pretty sure if the rest of us who are geo-blocked got to watch the series, there will be lots of discussions for this show. The show looks promising for the first 2 episodes but it's definitely not enough to make us engaged in more discussion.

I finally got to watch episode 3, 4 and 5. And I'm sorry to be a debbie downer here, but I didn't like the development that much tbh. My favorit pairing is still Thom and Jeremy, and we haven't seen them together in a while either
You don't fall in love with somebody because they're beautiful. They are beautiful because we love them.
Well, the show was promoted at least in AE and Towleroad, but frankly, the geoblocking is a big turn off. Some people who are not in the USA contributed to the success of the kickstarter campaign and now they can't even watch the show.
And yes, Degrassi is geoblocked but Riley storyline was posted on youtube, so all people who wanted could follow the storyline (and Degrassi is aired in a lot of countries).
The show is great, had great reviews, people love it, and even has the audacity to cast gay actors for gay roles (yes i know, i know, the sexual orientation of the actor it doesn't matter, but after a good bunch of experiences with actors getting famous thanks to a gay character showing all kinds of gay panic in interviews it's good to see a full cast without that problem). I don't know if it's working on Logo, but if the geoblocking stops (or they put the videos on youtube after being aired on Logo) i'm pretty sure it will be a lot more discussion on this thread
The get around the geoblocking, use a VPN service. There are some free ones available, including Hotspot Shield, JustFreeVPN, VPNBook, VPNMaster and ProXPN. I'm sure there are more out there. For paid VPN services, start-vpn.com has an extensive listing of them.
And no, using a VPN service to circumvent geoblocking is not the same thing as pirating. The VPN servers are actually located in the respective countries. Your video views will be counted as legitimate views from that country.
