Re: Anyone use a VPN service? Which one?

Using ExpressVPN with a UK server stops access to EF for me:

Re: Anyone use a VPN service? Which one?

Wife and I have been using NordVPN for about a year now.


Works well, not US based, and they do a good job sneaking past Netflix's VPN detection so we can often watch stuff on Netflix only available in the States.

I am currently on-line with ExpressVPN set to UK, and do not get this error message?

Express VPN is definitely the best and most extensive I've used, and my only VPN service since about a year. It makes sense not only from a streaming but also a security perspective. Have never had such a problem with EF.

Just click on the ExpressVPN icon if any problems with other sites (I put it on my menu bar on all of my devices, then with one-click you can easily turn it on or off).

Re: Anyone use a VPN service? Which one?

I use ProtonVPN. It's Swiss-based, actually from CERN where the web started, I believe, and they're very security-conscious, don't keep logs, allow integration with TOR, etc. From their site: "Switzerland is also outside of EU and US jurisdiction and is not a member of the fourteen eyes surveillance network." I've been happy with it and Netflix is no problem. Unfortunately iPlayer often does not work.

I bought a 3 year plan for ProtonVPN and was very happy with everything technically, but not with their billing; when the 3 years was up they automatically renewed it and sent me an invoice, which I didn't like, but as I was going to renew anyway I let it slide but then when I went to pay the bill by paypal I would have had to give them an ongoing authorisation to charge my paypal account, if i paid by credit card* then they said the same would happen. After some back and forth they were unable to offer me a way to pay them without authorising future charges, so I went elsewhere.

*I've since started using Revolut so I could have just paid on a virtual credit card and then deleted the card.
