I've heard this one recommended and was thinking of trying it ($40 for a year).

In the meantime, I sometimes use the free Zenmate Chrome extension to bypass BT ISP filters.

I'm happy to pay so long as it doesn't cost a fortune and offers port forwarding.

IPVanish comes free with Eweka if you also want a good usenet provider. It's cheaper than just paying for Ipvanish.

Not sure if it counts as a VPN but Hola Unblocker extension on your browser works great. Can change what country you're browsing from in a click, excellent for Netflix

What is the best way to do this for the Amazon Fire TV\Stick if you want to watch the sports? - For NBC Sports Extra, I believe, you need to change your network settings to use a US based IP. From what I have read you cannot do this with PIA and you would need to install a VPN onto the router? - Not sure I know what I am talking about here :) However, from what I read on the forums, PIA will not run on the SKY routers due to the firmware on the router? - So what is the best solution to 1. enable you to watch NBC Sports Extra on the Fire TV\Stick and 2. Have a VPN on either a SKY router or on your client devices? - Is this two separate solutions or can I do both? - Cheer for any help.

Don't bother with a VPN if that's what you want it for as it isn't working right now. It may work again in the future. Loads of other ways of watching live sports on XBMC without paying though.

Thanks cloggypop, I'll checkout the XBMC thread to see how people are watching the live sports. NBC Sports Extra seems brilliant but it needed a US IP address. My months trial is over :) - Cheers.

Can anyone recommend a good vpn mainly for accessing the iplayer from outside the UK? My hotspot shield account has recently expired and I'm wondering if there is a better/cheaper option out there.

Give IpVanish a go,it has a scramble option that is supposed to bypass the network traffic sensors that block the use of vpns.I posted a link to the cheapest way to get it in the SM on the QT thread.

If it doesn't work you can get your money back during the 1st 7 days.

How are you watching iplayer? Through laptop/pc? Honestly I wouldn't go the paid route if that's all you'll be needing it for.

Android box and laptop. Mainly the former. Hola doesnt work and I'm not aware of any other free routes.

Best vpn is free and although I never used it much it did work pretty well,couldn't tell you if it works on the iplayer though.

I use Zenmate for free on my pc to access iptorrents and that works a treat for anyone after a free one, there is a paid option but I've never upgraded.
I run kodi on the pc and although I use Zenmate it doesn't seem to help with accessing the blocked streams for SportsMania, any ideas on how to add a dedicated VPN for kodi through the pc?

That's already possible with XMTV Player / XMTV Cast (beta), but yes I guess it will now be possible on VLC too.  With XMTV it does depend on the codec being used for the stream, sometimes it's not possible, and I suspect VLC will have the same issue.  When that happens I just mirror the phone screen.

Was using this great for the past month or so on Sky but have just moved over to Plusnet and my torrents are crawling now. Could they still be throttling through the VPN, or throttling BECAUSE i'm using a VPN?
