I got an offer now from NordVPN 2 years + 3 months free for 2,69 a month which checks out 69 usd for 27 months. 
 

Any other Black week/friday offers?

I have used Ivacy for years, some good deals, but more important, it works

 

Have a look

That was a great deal. Do you know if they manage viaplay to, and Discovery?

I am with NordVPN - last year I paid $59.00 and this year was quoted $106.44 to renew. I sent a terse complaint and they replied "Our costs grew with these upgrades, and that led to the price change." I cancelled the auto-renewal and was going to move away but two weeks later got another email offering me two years for $83.23 (includes 20% UK tax) which I accepted - a week later I got another email to say that they'd given me an extra month.

 

However, I only ever use it in Thailand to link with UK-based TV channels that are geographically limited and on this visit I have noticed that the BBC seem to know that I am using a VPN although it only causes minor issues. Eurosport (now part of Discovery for live/rerun Superbikes) and Channel 4 (F1 highlights), my main targets, are fine.

Bought Ivacy 60 usd 5 years! Testing now and working well with Discovery Norway, but Viaplay detect the vpn same as they detect Nord and Express. So far so good.

 

Thanks for the tip

Obviously price matters, but more so than price is the reliability of the VPN to respond to the cat-&-mousing used by some of the geocached providers.

 

 

BBC iPlayer seems recognises as lot of VPN’s as does Amazon Prime...  we then have to switch server - it which seems successful (so far).

 

Netflix used to recognise a VPN (if trying to access geocached content to watch something not available in my region) - sometimes a VPN works, sometimes it doesn’t. 

 

I’ve found Express VPN to be decent enough for most of my needs.

Best company Vs price and privacy : www.privatevpn.com   : Swedish Company : For sure no Logging ... also pay with BTC , You can merge payment with Monero no trace what so ever.

If you have a Rakuten account, you can usually get a 40% rebate on the cost of Nord VPN. BTW, I've found that Nord VPN hasn't worked for the applications I need it most for: Bank of America and Netflix.

So far so good with Ivacy for all my purposes. 
 

A really good offer if it continue like this. Better speed than my Express VPN, and when using my phonecsim as hub at best 20mb line and average 8 it really matters.

Look for lifetime subscription for Keep Solid VPN Unlimited -- US$40..... for life.

 

Here's the link.  It currently shows "sold out", but keep checking it.

I use it all over the world without issues with speed or streaming issues.

18 and 12 Mbps seem a bit slow. Though of course it depends on the server locations.

 

Can some more people post speed results and their VPN provider? Would be interesting to see which providers have good connections to Thailand.

I have now tried Ivacy and chybergoast, but Nordvpn and Express are those two who works best for my needs connecting to Norwegian websites and apps. 
 

Thanks guys for the contributions.

You can install a vpn at a router level, then all devices on the router are using the vpn, but its a lot of stuffing around, and you then need to go into router to turn on/off etc.

In the case of your TV, the vpn would be installed on the tv. But lots of smart TVs are limited as to what apps/vpn setup you can have. 

You may be able to do something like have the vpn on a PC/laptop then share the PC internet with the TV. Or cast the PC to the TV.

Not exactly legal, but there are lots of apps for getting geolocked content. Redbox, TVmob, swiftstreams etc.

That is what I do in order to watch BBC iPlayer, but connect the laptop via an HDMI cable.....I use Nord VPN.

There are a few ways, as mentioned.

 

Yes, you can download the VPNs helper app onto your smart TV, then turn it on and off as required. This is the simplest method. I have a firestick, with surfshark VPN helper app to watch iPlayer - it automatically connects to the UK server on startup. You could do this for the states, either automatically or manually.

 

I run another VPN on my computer, which I manually switch on and off as required.

I learnt a long time ago, to play all these websites that provide these internet services at their own game. Every time I need to renew a program I look for a similar program doing the same job. They call the initial download an introductory offer. So just keep on changing programs on renewal and remain on the introductory offers. May I add I fluked a VPN by the name of FAST VPN. It works perfectly US$ 12 per annum. Even ZENMATE is worth a try.

Ivacy has been my favourite for a few years now, not so well known so speeds good

 

Stiil got good deals on, Ivacy

At this point it looks like you're just advertising that service with all your affiliate links. Makes me less likely to choose them. Seeing that they are using stuff like Google Analytics to track users actually is a no-go IMHO.
