How does TurboBeacon work?
TurboBeacon is a bridge between your Internet connection and your streaming devices, intercepting all outgoing Internet traffic and funnelling it to regions of the world with the best content selection. Simply plug in the TurboBeacon box to your wireless router, and connect the streaming device you wish to unblock to a new WiFi network called ‘TurboBeacon’.
Does TurboBeacon replace my router?
TurboBeacon does not replace your router, but acts like an enhancement to it. You will need to plug the TurboBeacon box into your router, which will create a new WiFi network called ‘TurboBeacon”. Connect any streaming device you wish to unblock to the new ‘TurboBeacon” network, and you will have access to the best content.
Can I still use my home WiFi connection for other devices?
Absolutely. Only the devices you connect to “TurboBeacon” WiFi will stream US content. Any devices that are still connected to your home WiFi will stream content from your region.
Can I connect with an Ethernet cord?
TurboBeacon is only available to use with a WiFi router/modem at the moment.
What if my region does not use a standard North American outlet?
If you live in a region that uses a US, UK, EU or AU standard plug, we will send you a plug that works for your region. If you use a plug type that is not compatible with US, UK, EU or AU, you will be sent a standard US plug, unless otherwise requested, and you will be responsible to acquire an adapter for such plug.

Is TurboBeacon the same as TurboFlix?
TurboBeacon comes from the creators of TurboFlix, but is an entirely different product. TurboBeacon is a new, innovative solution to break geographical barriers, and allow you to view the world’s best content in your region. TurboBeacon is the best video unblocking solution available in the world!
What do I do with my TurboFlix account once I have ordered TurboBeacon?
TurboBeacon achieves the same goal as TurboFlix by unblocking your streaming services, but in a very different way. TurboBeacon was created with new, innovative technology that cannot be blocked as DNS services, like TurboFlix, have been. You will want to cancel your TurboFlix subscription if you have not already done so. If you have been extended for a period of time, or have an outstanding balance with TurboFlix, please contact our support team for more instructions.
Can I transfer my TurboFlix subscription to my TurboBeacon account?
Unfortunately, we will not be able to transfer any subscriptions from TurboFlix over to TurboBeacon. However, if you have purchased a long-term subscription with TurboFlix (such as lifetime, 3-year or 1-year offers) we will happily refund your payment appropriate to the time of its purchase. Please contact our support team for more details, as we are here to make the transition to TurboBeacon as smooth as possible.
