Best VPN provider that I've tested thus far. The software is brilliant too, very easy to use and lets you choose the country/city that you want to access the internet through.

I'm also using purevpn

Agree with the comments about signing up - even paying the monthly bill can be a bit time consuming

However, I do find the service good once I'm connected.

Use ExpressVPN. Like others that people have mentioned, software-based. Can choose multiple cities/countries (even Singapore lol). Connections are reliable, speeds are decent (I use them for my US streaming, no buffering issues) and above all, work.

Hi,

I got witopia and it works well on the tablets.

However, I can't get it to work on my tv.

Does anyone manage to watch netflix on their television?

Advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

most that do this either use MyRepublic or ViewQuest which negates the need for a VPN in SG, or has a router for their home which establishes the VPN connection. I'm not aware of any TVs with VPN clients built in.

If you use TV on SH/M1/ST... netflix is blocked. MR and VQ tweaks DNS or passthru VPN for netflix

use the ISP's DNS servers in your settings as the device will take google's dns.

Thanks both. I guess I'll have to fork out for something that works as a physical VPN.

Unfortunately I'm stuck with Starhub now (pretty poor)


edit: what about this?

I'll give it a go.

Update: Unotelly is the business!

It works with my Samsung Smart TV, PC and Android devices. Nothing to install either.

Absolutely brilliant.

So now it's Netflix straight to TV.

I thought I'd share

it is now. I was using WiTopia, but not good for the TV without a physical router interface with VPN.

Unotelly works remotely.
