Geoblocking allows you to specify access to a video by country. You can use geoblocking to either restrict access to only specified countries, or restrict specified countries from having access. Use this tool when you only have distribution rights to content in certain locations. Geoblocking on Unreel is done on a video-by-video basis. To enable geoblocking you must go to the Geoblocking drop down in the video details section of each video.  This section can be edited during the video upload process, or accessed later by following the below steps. 

Please note this is only applicable for Network accounts. Contact us for further details if you have interest.
