VPN problems

Does anyone know a free or cheap VPN that I can use to watch TV just for a couple of weeks until I leave? I have UKTV Access but have increasing problems with it and have got to the end of my tether with it. Over the last 6-9 months ive been having an increasing amount of times when its so slow that I cant watch anything at all. This mornıng its pinging at around 800 and no speed at all. Without VPN around 14 and fast. UKTV access always insist it must be my İSP thats causing the problem but I cant really see how thats possible because ıt still happens exactly the same since I changed my İSP.
Very grateful for any ideas chaps.

Re: VPN problems

It does sound as if your internet conection is not fast enough to support streaming. You could try switching off other devices which are connected to the internet, eg radio, phone, kindles etc. A vpn would slow it down even more

Re: VPN problems

Try Browsec free, it does slow you down but only marginally

Re: VPN problems

For a couple of weeks you can use Proton pro for a week then delete and readd using a different email address. Works for me. No discernable speed loss.

Re: VPN problems

I am wary of free vpns. The old free lunch syndrome. I believe that they exist to capture your browsing data so that they can then sell it on.

Re: VPN problems

You do not mention what you are using, are you on Windows and do you want to watch iPlayer?

Re: VPN problems

VPN's are not ideal for TV, the latest security/encryption on servers reduce internet speed significantly.
Most folk in our area are now using TVMucho, providing 36 UK channels and 7day catchup, with channel selection from a TV guide. Can pay monthly or annually, register with Email address for 1 hour a day free, no card needed unless you later choose to subscribe. No VPN needed.

Re: VPN problems

I would say that for TV, members should go for a Smart DNS service, SmartDNS has no encryption and can be had for as little as $39 for a full 12 months.
