Haha ExpressVPN is advertised quite heavily in Singapore but I've barely heard of it in Europe and the cost was off-putting as well.

Ended up using it as I was looking for a Singapore server on a short notice and PIA wasn't fast enough.

Do you know who has the fastest Singapore VPN server? Options do seem rather limited compared to US / EU servers.
I use expressvpn app sideload on my nvidia shield tv. Totally cannot work! I choose both their Chicago and LA server but Netflix and Amazon TV all can't watch

What's the reason? For me ExpressVPN's MediaStreamer DNS are enough to make stream US Netflix via Nvidia Shield (you need to insert them manually in Shield). No reason to use VPN. Also not all ExpressVPN servers are US Netflix unblocked. Check for example Washington's servers - they work.

Kind of strange but I can't find. The US servers are great for Amazon prime and Netflix

On the Astrill VPN client, China2 is there but will only appear if you select "OpenWeb", it's not available under "OpenVPN" or "StealthVPN".

Still don't have. Is it because I am on 7 day trial?

Yes. I think for the price and performance/experience, it's worth it for my usage.

Though I'm quite a light user. Actually, I was hoping to share the account with another light user.

Quite sian! They don't allow me to access the China server. I just wrote to Astrill and they say the list of available server is pre allocated! So not all are given the same list. Seems like I can only use it for US content

Is it mentioned anywhere or customers made known about this allocation thing?

Which server do you want? I can check my account. I don't use China.

Pre-allocated? I've used astrill for 7 years and I didn't know that such a thing exists All my friends' astrill accounts have the China server as well
