Suggestions for VPN for watching internationally


Posted: Dec 26, 2019 10:26 AM
 

I'm out of the country and need a VPN to watch Saturday. I have had a couple over the last few years that stopped guiding my location well enough after a while. Seemed odd because both worked initially but so be it. Does anyone have experience with a specific VPN for this use?

You can try Proton VPN free of charge and see how it works for you. I use it on my phone and it serves me well.

To clarify, they offer a free plan. It isn't just a free trial.

Thanks. I'll probably try it first then. I need to do a little research first since one response said some VPN's disguise the fact that they are VPN'S and some don't. I'm not sure if maybe that was the problem with at least one of the 2 working initially and not later.


IP Vanish is my go to

Thanks. I know they get great reviews and I actually had them for a couple of months in the off season but had problems with my provider and never got a chance to see much. I have a new internet provider now, so I think I have that part of the equation solved.

I have hulu and I use ExpressVpn. Which ever you choose make sure it is a tunnel vpn otherwise it will have a tag announcing it is a Vpn.

I record all Clemson games with Hulu but typically watch all games live on USTVNow. It does not need a vpn as it is expressly for expats and military living overseas. If you pay for premium which is $39 a month you get a faster feed and you get DVR time. If you watch a large screen it can be a little blurring some times depending oh how many subscribers are using the same channel. If that occurs watch it on your laptop of tablet and it will always be crystal clear.

By the way do you live in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia? If so, you are welcome to watch it at our house. We live in a compound in Khobar.

Thanks for the info and the offer, but I live in Ecuador / Sandy Springs. My wife and daughter are in Ecuador while I work with paperwork for my wife and so I am back and forth.


Depending on the carrier, you might also consider gps hack

I used to use YouTube TV and tried to watch other market’s NFL games. I thought a VPN would suffice but it turns out the app uses the tablet’s GPS for that feature. I think the Android app is FakeGPS and it worked well (I used ad-supported one).

I also tried to watch the olympics in Mexico and was unable to download the NBC app from the App Store. So, if using apps, keep that in mind.

Good luck!

Sure hope you aren't in the Middle East. All the countries there now block the websites to subscribe to VPN services. In 2015, I had no problem getting a VPN subscription there. Last year...no dice. Fortunately I had my old service on my laptop and was able to sign in on a friends laptop who had a VPN to get to my old site and re-subscribe to my old service.

Censorship is alive and well in some countries.


I use WInscribe for my computer

and pay for unlimited data. I think it's 9.99 a year.

I use Turbo VPN on my phone. It's free
