Best VPNs ?

I know zero about VPNs or how to run one on my TVs , we have a couple of smart TVs ,   A non smart TV and a projector in the theatre room running of a internet enabled receiver . In some rooms we are running Fetch boxes and in other rooms we have Kodi boxes which we haven’t used in about 12+ months as streaming became a pain in the arse due to links becoming almost unusable . 

I’m thinking the Kodi boxes with the NETFLIX apps installed would be the way to go ? 

Happy to pay a premium for a hassle free and consistent VPN .

  • In my business long ago, I used to use a Netgear VPN Router from the server at work which connected through the Telstra cable to the internet and onwards to my home 140ks away where it connected via copper line ADSL and synced up to another Netgear VPN Router.

    I was able to be online (live) with my server which gave me constant full access to the accounts system, sales system, delivery system, service call systems, etc and I even had a VOIP going and a direct copper telephone linkup via Testra which allowed me to connect with our office phone system like another telephone extension at work. It was great - more time with family and kids, better social life and I was able to maintain all the most important stuff that brought in all the big money for my business.

    Obviously, this is not what you want to do BUT, you really need to talk to your internet providers tech department and with a cable specialist who should be able to set up a Pro VPN internally in your home. Even contacting Netgear in Australia should be very helpfull considering they are one of the original pioneers of VPN.

    • Thanks Frog . If it’s set up on your modem ( or router ) can you still change countries when you need to ? 

      • Is the VPN you are seeking for privacy over the net? If yes, you need to look at using a browser like Opera that comes with a free vpn. Otherwise checjk out NordVPN which might be the very best VPN currently in the market - with a three year plan it cost $2.99 p/m.

        Why do you need VPN?

        Think of VPN as your own secure and private gateway to the internet. When enabled, VPN sends your internet traffic through an encrypted virtual tunnel and cloaks your IP address. With the help of a secure VPN connection from NordVPN, you can protect your online communications from unwanted snoopers and keep access to your favorite content even when traveling outside your country.

        Securing your data with strong encryption comes with a slight decrease in internet speed. But it’s the very nature of encryption! Websites you’re visiting, videos you’re watching, GIFs you’re laughing at – all online data has to be scrambled to protect your internet activity from prying eyes. NordVPN users enjoy encryption-powered security with minimum impact on their internet speed, so you will hardly notice the difference!

          • I too would reccomend Nord, tried 1-2 other paid VPN's before Nord, and some I used for less than a week before paying for another one. The times I have had issues with Nord, I disconnect and reconnect and problem solved, this typically only occurs occasionally if I stay connected to the same VPN for a couple weeks (my PC stays on).

            • Thanks CF.I don,t know much about this . How do you use it. Is it compatible with Norton and do you use it all the time. I used to watch Pirate bay years ago until there were a lot of legal issues.Also used to watch BBC TV until they wiped there coverage to other countries. Does a VPN get you access to those types of overseas sites?  Are there any sporting sites you can use it. Sorry -but this is all new territory for me

              • Speaking for Nord I am not aware of any compatibility issues, so should work with Norton, but I would imagine most VPN software would.

                In Nord you just click on the country you want to connect to, and it is then connected in that country 10-15 seconds later. This will allow you to access UK BBC content, or any other country blocked content.  Also of note Netflix has a greater content library if you connect as US rather than Australia, which I belive is to do with Foxtel having rights to stuff in Australia so Netflix cant show this content in Aus.

              • It's a matter of selecting the country and trying out different ip addresses to see if you can get in or not - some you may still need to register as a user/member/etc before finding out if you can access whatever you are searching for.

                As for NRL, we still use Vipbox (full of pop up screens with crap adds and sometimes partial nudity) and you have to keep clicking on the x and then keep clicking on the game you want to watch and then select Box 2 or Box 3 to stream the game. Only do this process a minute or so before the game commences  https://vipbox.im/watch-rugby
