Exactly ... blocked or rate limited from.a /20 or /18 but it’s pretty hard to diff from same customer that is also watching from a full routed VPN’d service for privacy which I find quite often being implemented in services like AdBlock, AdGuard and the like which becomes a point of confusion for the svc providers. It’s not necessarily sharing when you find the user in the US also logging in from Italy or France for example.
The fact that there's a highway to Hell but only a stairway to Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic volume.

>>> I have a customer that is using Hulu Live to stream ESPN, however it isn't showing up in their Channel list. They reached out to Hulu and it's because their IP address is 'commercial'. We have many customers using Hulu without problems, but it seems specific to ESPN. Anyone else have this issue? Do you reach out to ESPN or Hulu?
