GEO Restriction

Estimated reading time: 1 min

Assuming you already know how to create a screening, the first step is to add the basic info of the screening (if you’re unsure, you can find out more here) and the second step is to add pre-roll (find more here).

Geo-Restriction, which is set per screening (and not per account) will block access to a screening in a way that can be defined by the admin (account holder in Movies Everywhere).

Choose the granularity and the logic of the restriction – by country or by city – and whether you want to block some locations or allow only some of them.

Restriction Type

  • Blacklist (Block): This will block the countries or a city selected by the admin/organization where they want to restrict the screening.
  • White list (Allow): This will allow the countries or a city selected by the admin/organization where they want to have the screening.

Restricting For

Countries:
By selecting the Countries radio button, there will be an option of Select Countries where the admin can select the countries

City:
By selecting the city radio button, the admin can only select one city where he or she wants to have screening or where they want to restrict.

Note:
– Only one city can be whitelisted or blacklisted per screening.
– City and region level restriction is approximate and its accuracy is changing from one country and district to another.
