Just cancelled PIA. They didn't manage to resolve my connection issue within the trial period.

Any recommendations for connecting to Japan?

This is Smart DNS and not VPN.

The Smart DNS Proxy Server is use for streaming geo-restricted content or blocked websites. If you want to protect your online privacy then use VPN instead to encrypt your traffic.

I have been using ExpressVPN MediaStreams DNS for months on my Nvidia Shield to access US Netflix. If you like to get extra 30 days (which I will get too), you can sign up via my referral link.

Are there anything that combines both this functions in 1 product/service?
Or in the market need to get separately? If so , get both from same company or different?

Thanks.

Then just get a VPN and make sure they have US servers. Most if not all of the VPN providers do have US servers.

You can't stream from Viki or DramaFever unless you're connected to a US server (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

There are many other sites for drama. Just google the title of the drama and some sites will have it.

So what you guys think about recent Astrill changes & VIP plan? They had VIP before, but now they re-vamped it, added multi-hop etc. The wording used for VIP is a bit worrying (it was not present for previous VIP addon they had):
"VIP package allows prioritized traffic on all servers, so in the rare occasion when the VPN server you connect to is overloaded, with VIP add-on you will not notice any slow-down."

That potentially means those without VIP may notice some slow downs.

I have a few high quality VPN to let go, from many locations. The latency from my vpn, SG to FR is only 200ms, the routing is superb. It will be your personal VPN. Just let me know your requirements and i'll be happy to optimize it for you. Drop me a PM
