That's not how VPNs work. Well, it can be but it would be highly unusual for a hotel or similar to be operating a VPN at the router level. Get yourself an account  with privateinternetaccess.com, download the client to your device, put your credentials in, choose your country proxy and off you go. For example, right now I am connecting through their US East POP, but if I wanted to watch BBC iPlayer I would simply change it to one of the UK locations (London and Southampton are the currently offered options) and away I go.

Just tried privateinternetaccess.com from Munich to access iplayer and sky go through the UK. Both websites detected that I was abroad. Doesn't work. -72 triceratops.

Yup - it works for BBC but not Sky Go. Also isn't Hola bad for putting trackers on your computer?

The boss here likes to use Cyber Ghost - it's an app on ios and android. I think you get a free 7 day trial with it.

They didn't detect that you were abroad,at least not if you set it up properly. They've probably flagged the PIA IP address that you were presenting as a known proxy - refresh the connection and try again. I just connected to UK London and it gave me iPlayer access perfectly fine.
I don't like workaholics. Don't f*cking trust them. Why are they working? I don't trust busy c*nts. That's how wars start: busy f*ckers.

Did you actually stream or download a programme though? It takes me to the iplayer website and it's only when I click on to stream something I get the error message that it's detecting I'm abroad.
It's set up properly as when I connect through it, I get the pop up notification that it's working. Just tried it again now on BBC iplayer. Again, goes to the webpage but won't play anything.

Yeah, it's hit and miss. The big VPN providers get their IP addresses flagged by the BBC, they change their addresses, they get flagged, the circle continues. You just have to keep reconnecting until it works.

Also, everyone knows El Salvador isn't really a country.

If noodle and Mangetout need me to expand the service I will. Currently the market really only demands El Salvador, but I included Canada and the US as a customer service and then it appeared there was a demand for the UK so I expanded.
