VPN's

In very simple terms, a VPN connects your PC, smartphone, or tablet to another computer (called a server) somewhere on the internet, and allows you to browse the internet using that computer’s internet connection. So if that server is in a different country, it will appear as if you are coming from that country, and you can potentially access things that you couldn’t normally. The data is essentially gibberish to anyone who intercepts it. Your ISP, government or hackers won't know which websites you visit. They do know you used a VPN though.

So how does this help you? Good question! You can use a VPN to:

Bypass geographic restrictions on websites or streaming audio and video.
Watch streaming media.
Protect yourself from snooping on untrustworthy Wi-Fi hotspots.
Gain at least some anonymity online by hiding your true location.
Protect yourself from being logged while torrenting.

The vast majority of people these days are using VPN for torrenting or bypassing geographic restrictions to watch content in a different country. They are still very useful for protecting yourself while working at a coffee shop, but that’s hardly the primary use anymore.

Guide you can read: https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/what-...-you-need-one/

Why would TEFL members use one? Well to watch UK TV catch-up a VPN is most likely needed.

So what would members recommend is a good VPN that they are happy with?

Re: Vpn

To kick off with if it is just a browser based requirement then Browsec has an extension for most browsers https://browsec.com/en/ but iPlayer is well aware of it and therefore I gather it does not work for BBC.

If you want to watch live TV through such as https://tvplayer.com/watch/ it works fine.

Hoxx is another freebie https://hoxx.com/download/ I have not tried it so can not comment.

Re: Vpn

I use Cactus VPN and pay $39 for VPN and Smart DNS combined. Support is second to none and they do offer a free trial.

If you are none techy and just want TV then just go with the SmartDNS as it automatically switches you when needed.

Trial: https://www.cactusvpn.com/free-smart-dns-trial/

Re: VPN's

Some VPN's do not allow torrent downloads so here is a list of some that do

The Best VPNs for Torrents: https://www.vpnmentor.com/bestvpns/torrents/

I am not recommending any, up to you to use due diligence.

Re: VPN's

Another browser freebie

https://dotvpn.com/en/download/chrome/

I have not used but BBC has probably blocked, hopefully a member will try it and let us know.

Re: VPN's

UK TV Access is managed by Neil Denizli, a TLF member.

No free trial but says "A full refund within seven days if unhappy for any reason"

I gather he no longer keeps logs but no torrent downloads; most members here use a VPN for TV so no problems really.
