Many thanks, akbukowl. I'm currently using Netflix which doesn't need a VPN and my current internet speed 1s 12 - 14 which is just about adequate. However, a VPN knocks this down to about 7 which is not adequate so I think this rules out BravoTV until internet speed is increased here. Shame it looked promising!

Why does your vpn knock your speed down to that level ?
I would try a better vpn Bravo will supply you with one that will work just get the free trial and then make a decision.

If you say its there then it is- not arguing

The quality of the streams for live tv was brilliant but my speed here is a lot faster than Turkey
I've just had a message from Bravo tv he is developing a new app which will be approx 25 a year to operate at the moment it doesn't have catch up on but will in the future new customers are being put on that service e and existing customers will be transferred as the subscription comes up for renewal.
Hopefully that clears matters up.

There are VPNs and VPNs! The cheap and free ones often use a very limited number of IP addresses for their customers, which means they are often not very private either. But they may also not reduce the network speed by much. More expensive, safer, VPNs (mine!) will have an almost infinite number of IP s for their customers, sited in different countries, making them very secure, but the down side is the speed can be affected. This is not a problem, of course, if you have a normally fast, stable, internet speed.
You probably know (google it!) that a number of VPNs in Turkey have already been blocked, and the number that still work here is much reduced compared to a few years ago.
I feel in my bones that the Bravo product will either be fast and blocked, or unblocked and slow, but I will probably give it a trial, so thanks for the information.

It won't be blocked but use there vpn set up or something like Nord
There is a weekly housework recommendation which entails clearing the data and cache from the Bravo app and the VPN this keeps the system working without issues and little buffering ,sky try to block when the football is on but never succeed and I usually watch on bein which is very stable.

Re: Sky tv

Probably not a good idea to mention the VPN you are using on an open forum!
