From 1st April 2018 onwards, it was a happy moment for Dutch folks as several local TV providers abolished the GEOBlocking of their TV streaming app within the EU. We tested ZiggoGo / HorizonGo when the clock chimed midnight to 1st April 2018, but was still blocked when outside of The Netherlands. By morning of 1st April 2018, the block has been removed. Hoera!
The GEOblock still applies outside of EU, and you can use the VPN function when outside of the EU when vacationing in Turkey, Egypt, US, etc.
