Which overseas VPN provider for US/UK TV from AU?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to help someone who wants to watch US/UK TV from Australia. eg: (US), ITV (UK). Just needs something reliable for streaming, affordable and easy enough to set up on the VPN Client (i.e. setting up own server hosted overseas is out of the question).

Can anyone give any suggestions as to what they use?

Can't you just change your DNS to access other countries content...

No, it needs to be VPN. DNS can't do this.

Thanks for showing me the DNS option. It initially confused me because I know that DNS only redirects your browser to an IP address, but that IP address would know exactly where you are connecting from.

It seems that the "DNS" in actual fact redirects you to their own "rogue" webservers when you try to visit one of these sites (not the official server that geoblocks), and their "rogue" webserver acts as a proxy. So really it is a DNS/Proxy solution, not strictly DNS.

But regardless of how it works, it looks like a good option, which should have much higher throughput depending on what their rogue webservers can handle. I will probably go with one of these. Thanks
