For Streaming I would recommend PIA, PureVPN, IPVanish they are best and allow access to watch live streaming with fast speed.. They have great protocols such as L2TP, SSTP, OpenVPN etc which provide total anonymity and dedicated IP.. Multiple servers in different locations so you can get desired country IP as well to watch Hulu, Netflix and other streaming channels..

PIA / Hulu+ / Roku3 user here (and also through VPN router)

Am thinking of switching to Astrill as recommended by bros here 'cause many IPs blocked by Hulu and the remaining ones are slow

any Astrill + Hulu users here can advise no problems with Hulu?

thanks!

In Astrill 2.9.2 (build 2016) 8/July/2014

This version brings reliability and speed improvements for both OpenVPN/StealthVPN and OpenWeb and full support for new OpenWeb v2 protocol. As we plan to deploy OpenWeb v2 in several weeks to all servers, this update is necessary.

- New: updated network redirector (LSP) component (Windows); Fixes some IE related crashes.
- New: updated OpenSSL to 1.0.1h. AES-NI is now supported client side
- New: Switched default encryption from BlowFish to AES for security and speed.
- New: OpenWeb autotuning for speed (The more you surf, the faster it becomes!)
- New: Improved windows installer to update LSP and TAP driver only if necessary, so reboot is not needed always.
- Fixed: some minor HTTP keep-alive improvements (OpenWeb)
- Fixed: OpenWeb handshake bug (only OpenWeb v2 protocol)
- Fixed: included some patches from OpenVPN branch 2.3.x (improves connectivity in some cases)
- Fixed: a bug in TAP adapter on Windows (DHCP issue)
- Fixed: an attempt to make fonts look smooth on Mac retina. Graphics not yet fully fixed.
- Fixed: CryptoPlus additional ciphers (CAST and BlowFish 256/512-bit options) where not working on Linux
- Other: other improvements/fixes.

When installing new version over the old version, don't forget to reboot your computer for all changes to be applied correctly !

I bet you've never experienced / witnessed a dozen policemen + lawyers from anti-piracy org storming in to your office/house to want to take such risk.

Might as well just P2P w/o VPN. Faster that way
who cares

can consider torguard. speed so so. they have viscosity for the MBP. quite convenient in changing server.

TorGuard is good ... both for video streaming (US & UK) as well as P2P (good track record for client anonymity). If you sign up with them, let me know and I'll share with you which of their servers to use (they have a lot and it takes quite a while to figure out the good ones from the bad ones).

gonna try TorGuard once my PIA sub is finished!

elpibe... which server do you recommend ?

just wondering but is there any reason to actually go VPN? I mean, if all you need is to bypass websites country blocks(world cup etc), wouldnt a proxy be cheaper and sufficient?

And how do you want to setup a proxy on Apple TV for instance? I also don't think that good quality proxies dedicated for streaming are cheaper than VPNs.

been using Roku3 for couple days. setup is connected via LAN. to a ddwrt router with astrill applet installed. using the singapore (USA). buffering netflix very fast. not sure how to identify super HD thing. but picture quality is good. in fact better than the Starhub On Demand channel. and the best part is the remote. the earphone jack is just briliant.
im on MaxOnline 50Mbps.

There is no more Super HD vs HD. Netflix is now showing the highest available quality regardless of the network.

Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD 4K quality

However Ultra HD quality is available only to devices which can support HEVC codec (H.265).
