https://www.tipsforchina.com/mobile/...ml#2_Surfshark

The author recommended the following VPN for China.

1) ExpressVPN (usually works, speed so so)

2) Surfshark (with Shadowsocks or OpenVPN configurations if not working)

3) WannaFix (Shadowsocks provider, not traditional VPN, more like proxy)

4) VPN.ac, not recommended any more by the author. Has WireGuard option.

5) NordVPN, special OpenVPN configuration

6) 12VPN, with Shadowsocks

In addition to Shadowsocks, 12VPN also offers all the latest protocols that work good in China such as Outline, WireGuard, v2Ray, and Openconnect.

7) VyprVPN, not recommended by the author any more.

##########
If you need to stay in China only for a short time, I will recommend using mobile data roaming, for example StarHub prepaid card.

For long time stay you may want to have two things at the same time, one traditional VPN and one Shadowsocks provider. You may even want to set up your own server on a VPS.

The author above only uses one SS provider WannaFix. Apparently he is not so familiar with them.

The following is a good summary for Shadowsocks/V2Ray/Wireguard/etc providers.

lifetime for US$12

https://stacksocial.com/sales/tnt-st...e-subscription
Try it and let us know.

Maybe this is better? Life time is more or less equal to 5 years.
https://stacksocial.com/sales/ivacy-...r-subscription

https://stacksocial.com/sales/ivacy-...e-subscription

5 years for US$20, one device
Life time for US$40, 5 device

At least IVacy is more well-known.

Hi guys,
I have set up windscribe on the laptop and firefox.
On my android phone, i am using blokada ads blocker. Understand you can only have 1 vpn in android set up. Those android users, which ads blocker you are using with windscribe. There are reviews indicating that the windscribe android app is a battery drainer. Advise please
Thanks!

LG TV and VPN are not that easy. What is your router?

https://thevpn.guru/best-lg-smart-tv...-webos-region/
==========
Either set up the VPN connection on your router or use a Smart DNS proxy service. In order to install a VPN on your router, the router itself needs to support VPN. In the case of Smart DNS, you’ll have to change the DNS server addresses of your LG Smart TV to those of the Smart DNS proxy service you are subscribed to.
=====

If your router does not support installation of VPN client (better ones do support), then you have very limited choices of VPN which provides Smart DNS Proxies along with the VPN service. The author mentioned two vendors which do that.

In summary the above article mentions three choices if you are not able to install the VPN on your router.
ExpressVPN
BulletVPN
Unlocator (not VPN but Smart DNS Proxies service).

=========_
If you’re looking for a VPN service provider to use with your LG Smart TV, make sure that the provider you end up choosing offers subscribers Smart DNS proxies which can be directly configured via the TV’s network settings. ExpressVPN and BulletVPN are both prime examples.

In case you are looking for a Smart DNS proxy service, you can sign up with Unlocator. They offer new users a free 7-day trial and do support unblocking around 200 channels from around the world. You can sign up for a free Unlocator trial without the need for a credit card.

Hi l just subscribed to Surfshark VPN. One reason is to be able to watch Singtel tv go EPL content when overseas. I am now in the UK but l still get a message on the tv go app saying that Singtel does not have the rights to the contents overseas even when l am logged on to a Singapore server. Any advice? Thanks

Does SingTel TV Go even support EPL? Have you tried that while you were in Singapore?

I know Singtel Cast Sports Plus pack supports EPL.

If indeed Singtel TV Go supports EPL, then you may want to contact Surfshark technical support to see if they can help you.

Try the following as well.
1) Check you are indeed connected to a Singapore server.
2) Disable location services.

Then you can install the VPN client on your router. That is a very good router with good VPN performance.

Surfshark
https://support.surfshark.com/hc/en-...ith-Surfshark-

Windscribe
https://windscribe.com/guides/asus

For those who do not have a good router with VPN client support, there are other workaround as well.
