Spanish language, out of state based commercials


Recommended Posts

Installed Starlink service last month. Maybe a coincidence,  but on certain streaming platforms, we are now seeing Spanish language commercials, and commercials from advertisers in Colorado.

This seems odd since our service is located in Southern Nevada.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks

@Steve,

Yes.

Long story short, your IP address is determined by the POP (land station) that receives your traffic from the Starlink Satellite. It sounds like your traffic is being routed through the Colorado POP.

The streaming platform looks up the location of your IP address, sees Colorado and so, it serves you advertising for Colorado.

We have seen commercials from California and Texas because, depending on the day, time and network condition, our traffic is sometimes routed through California and sometimes through Texas. We live in New Mexico.

As for the Spanish language commercials, I dunno. Maybe those are Colorado-targeted ads intended for a Spanish-speaking audience. We have noticed recently that all the captions on some TV shows are in French instead of English.... 🤷‍♂️
