I wonder if there has been an update on VPN's suggestions that were made in this thread Here 

 

As I am trying to navigate through the plethora of suggestions ranging from Free to "really a month!"

 

Suggestions please

For Geo unblocking: Either get VPN through someones private internet access, if you really are after trying to fool the likes of Netflix (because they seem to have most other solutions handled). Or use DNS4ME and their DNS service.

 

I have given up on fighting Netflix, but still get good use out of DNS4ME with access to BBC, Norwegian tv channels etc.

I use ExpressVPN now. While I haven’t used any other VPN’s (so I can’t compare), It ticks all the boxes for me. Ultimately, it really boils down to what you need it for. For me, it allows me to setup my Apple TV’s (with a little bit of an initial setup) to access all the geoblocked content without switching accounts. I.e., I can use Lightbox, Netflix (NZ) and non-local apps without switching profiles. My other thumbs up with this service is I can run 3 VPN connections at the same time (on different devices) pointing to different locations. I.e., desktop pointing at NZ, laptop pointing at USA and my phone pointing at the UK all at the same time.

As per this sticky thread I ask you don't discuss the unblocking of a large video streaming company out in public and PM me instead if you want access to the private forums to discuss these sorts of things. A few of you are already in the private forums and know the rules so I've removed your posts here to protect those companies providing a service to you. It is much harder to get a working service these days and often comes at a great cost for these companies.

 

@gnfb you're also now added to this. Take a look at the private forums and post in there if you can't find the information required but I trust you'll find what you need in there on a quick glance.
