Heb jij inmiddels op kunnen lossen hoe je een andere regio content krijgt op je Apple TV? Ik wil graag Nederlandse content kunnen zien in Engeland.

Sorry, in English:

 

Did you have able to solve how to get a different region content on your Apple TV? I would like to see Dutch content in England.

Hey, no, no one shared anything with me, no recommendation so far.

I searched the web and ExpressVPN and NordVPN both look promissing but had no time test them.

Thanks!Too bad, have already been in contact with expressvpn (even bought), but they say it won't work with this either.

Re: VPN recommendation RAX200

It would be best to check if they offer free trials. One major issue is many streaming services have been blocking VPN services, and even if a service works now, there is no guarantee that a service region locking content, will not end up blocking many of the VPN servers, thus it is best to avoid any long term contracts.

 

Also keep in mind that for some websites that enforce IP bans will inadvertantly ban accounts though that is more common with more esoteric ones such as dating sites, and others that maintain strict single account policies.

 

Due to that, it is often best to go with VPN services that offer split tunneling functions. e.g., if streaming with your PC, using a split tunnel to run standard web traffic directly to the internet, and streaming services over the VPN, though that often requires being able to install their specific VPN software, rather than a router forwarding everything.
