Thanks. You have no issues view China Programmes?
Now considering to signup with astrill.

Btw, does it make sense to run stealthVPN without RouetPro VPN? Asking cause I not sure after reading at astrill website.
Initially I can't when I was using OpenVPN or OpenWeb then I read it somewhere in this thread that I need to use StealthVPN in order to stream contents from China and it works.

StealthVPN only works with PC/Mac/Linux, can't use it on mobile devices as the mobile app doesn't have StealthVPN or OpenVPN.

Try signing up for 7-day free trial first. Usually free trial don't have StealthVPN but no harm online chat with them and see if they can let you try the StealthVPN for a few days.

You don't need RouterPro to run StealthVPN.

RouterPro is an Astrill applet that you can install on certain router with customised firmware, e.g. ASUS with Asuswrt-Merlin firmware or router with DD-WRT firmware.

I installed the RouterPro on my ASUS AC87U router and was able to stream Netflix on my Apple TV in full HD.

LIFETIME??? And still have discount code?

I never believe in such thing... Anyway, its just my opinion...
I tried subscribing to them and it works so far. After purchasing from the MakeUseOfdeals website, I was given a code to key into Getflix and purevpn website.

They seem to have increased the price for 2 year plan? US$149.99 was the price for 2 year plan last month (even US$125.99 as stated here), now they increased it to US$169.99 ahead of Black Friday...

Some users here paid US$89 & US$99 for 2 year plan, which were fantastic deals I think. Let's see what they will come up with.
It's a shame for Astrill to behave this way. I mean they are worth to pay but rising prices just before Black Friday, then decreasing it to the same level as before and calling it a deal is a joke.

What about those with private VPN IP, not shared (public)? This article is not clear about it, because it takes for granted that everyone is using shared / public IPs and servers.

Thanks for the explanation. But what is the feature or function for the RouterPro?

@oric1 has confused it all. Astrill applet is free to use, you can install it on any supported firmware which is Merlin, DD-WRT and Tomato. You don't need to buy RouterPRO to use Astrill applet and its features. However you will use a standard OpenVPN protocol on the Astrill's applet, which is less efficient and slower. RouterPRO is optimized version of OpenVPN, which is faster. How faster? Well in my experience even 2-4 times, it depends. I was getting fantastic speeds via router's applet back in 2013 in Singapore (on Asus RT-AC56U)
