As an express VPN user I can tell you unfortunately Netflix gets blocked often where I had to restart the movie or content  I’m viewing to continue.

Every country has an identity, history, custom, and culture. It’s a unique landscape in determining how its people Live, work, and play.

Hi, Dave. Yes, some VPN's will allow you to stream sites that are restricted from your actual country of origin, but as far as I know, they have to be a premium VPN such as Express VPN.

Hello Bill:

 

I have never set up or used a VPN. I now live in the UK. When I lived in the US, I used to be able to stream audio from the BBC, through my BBC account. I understand that is no longer possible.

 

Does it mean, If I set up a VPN, and I am outside the UK, I can connect to a server in the UK, and stream audio and video, from sights,which restrict broadcasts to people living in the UK?

Hi, Ed. This only configures the VPN native to Windows. It doesn't configure the third-party VPN that is inaccessible. Besides that, the VPN that is native to Windows doesn't unblock streams that are blocked from the user's country of network origin.

Hi Bill,

 

Press Windows key+i to bring up settings.

 

Press enter on Network and Internet from the list.

 

From the next list, press enter on VVPN.

 

Alternatively, just typing “VPN” in the search box that appears when you press the Windows key will probably get you there.

 

Cheers,

 

Ed

Hi, Ed. How do you key VPN settings manually into Windows if you have a VPN that isn't JAWS accessible?

Hi Stew,

As long as your VPN provider of choice lets you see its relevant settings, then you can key them in manually into Windows.

This is a bit more work but it's no more complicated than setting up an email account manually, and the massive advantage is that you don’t need to care whether your VPN provider’s software is accessible or worry whether they might break it during an update.

Cheers,

Ed
