Getting your TVPad ready for Thanks Giving

Without the outage ending in sight and the big Thanks Giving coming up tomorrow. One would wonder what they would need do to entertain their guests.

`Fraid not! We here at TVPadNews had come up with a video tutorial on how to get your TVPad back up and running.

Ever since the outage started in late October, 2015. TVPad users in the USA have been suffering a lot more than the rest of the world due to what it seems like a geo-blocking on the TVPad network cluster after the lawsuit. 

Due to the geo-blocking, a lot of US TVPad owners are still in the dark since no public explanation was released by the TVPad company.

The kind members on the TVPadTalk forum had been helping each others out and had developed a way to get the TVPad in full functionality.

So basically the solution here is to have another network (additional router with DHCP enabled)  inside of your home network. Then this new network will VPN (Virtual Private Network) into a remote network that has IPs outside of your country. Once the VPN connection is established, this VPN network will bypass your home’s network/home ISP/home country ISP thus making the TVPad work again.

We have made a couple of video tutorials on how to set this up.

Here’s some additional links if you have further questions.

    How’s your Thanks Giving ? Got the TVPad working ?

      Yes very good Thanksgiving and yes the TVpad is working and operational live tv only; peer to peer sharing/vod is functionality is down which is not being allowed thanks to the california judge’s default judgement enforcement actions taking effect over time; which is likely only going to worsen over time; last fallback position is China DNS based servers which is likely going to be the line of last defense that would be breached; depending on how aggressively the pursuit to shut down TVpad goes over time no thanks to the plaintiffs request for relief action enforcement.

        The dns servers aren’t a concern. The network can always be routed differently, the major hurdle TVPad will face is money. The injunction will no doubt hurt tvpads revenue. Especially if US is their major market (based on my numbers).

        They are gonna have to find new ways to sell their box. Whether it be called another product or from another shell company.

        I can safely bet TVPad type of service will continue to operate and come up. The money is just too much to ignore (which is why DISH sued).

        At the end of the day TVB and DISH needs to step up their game. They cant expect people to subscribe to their inferior product when their competition offers a one time fee solution.
