Hi guys,

Fed up of missing everything that doesn't get put on YouTube

There is one currently helping out a bunch of podcasts, but does anyone have experience of any good ones? I just need it to watch UK telly really, none of the other stuff...

Thanks all

    try this one, its a paid for but seems to work ok for me. https://www.privateinternetaccess.com
    If you are a chrome user theres even a widget you can add to the browser

    I just set up a VPN and punch everything through it since I often work out of the office.

    Also they have downloadable apps

    I cant get Eurosport to work when im using the London VPN though rrrr

    Using NordVPN you can watch ITV4. It is 5)% off with Topcashback for 2yrs

    I couldnt watch live but I can at least join in with the highlights now...

    (Is it on French radio anywhere? I feel like that may impact on some tips but....)

    Opera browser has a VPN built in and free. I use for those UCI Youtube videos/broadcasts that are geo-blocked mainly.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Well, I went for a month with NordVPN. I guess it's best to buy a year really but...we'll see

    A benefit I ve found I suppose is to slightly cover my tracks when I'm using banking apps on my phone (which if you ve joined the Monzo/Revolute-tion is all the time...)

    At least I can wrap up in the warm summer blanket that is the itv4 coverage now

    Bit slow to this.

    I have nordVPN. Is great, very easy to use, but doesn’t work with iPlayer

    I've worked in China and I'm now in Norway, found expressVPN to be the best over the years.

    I can pretty much get everything that I get at home.

    ExpressVPN also good. Works with iPlayer, ITV and... Netflix so you can get extra content not available in NL.
    Correlation is not causation.

    Yeah after minimal research, I think Nord and Express are the two best options, just depends which podcast you listen to that can get a discount code from...
