Hello, do any of you use IPTV?

Bored of the constant repeats on the TV and fancy something a little different as this lockdown persists.

I'm just using a Russian provider for $1/month.

Gives me tons of movies and 100+ russian channels.

I'm looking for the different versions of our UK channels, like discovery and Nat Geo, they get different programs and content on the Asian versions (I assume on the other regions too).

I don't want any Russian channels specifically (My Russian isn't good enough), some Euro channels would be welcome.

Tbh not a major viewer of TV but being sat at home has changed that.

IF you are worried about law compliance ...  Do you mean legal subscription IPTV like Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc., or dodgy - "I know a mate that can get you SKY" for an annual subscription ?
You won’t make every topic about you. Think of it like containing a virus: you can’t have it infecting everywhere.

Hey Luke,

I'm streaming HBO using a VPN as it's only available for free in the US without VPN.

Binge watching the Sopranos at the moment. HBO GO didn't work for me, but HBO NOW did. Some pretty good stuff there to watch.

I have a VPN from Nordvpn.

What are you using to view? A Kodi box or similar?

Just my computer. I set my location to somewhere in the US and then push the link I sent and then push HBO NOW and then and choose what I want to see.

Hook  it up to my  TV and there you are. Nice selection.
