You will soon find out when on holiday, that half of the apps installed on your devices when you were in the UK, no longer work when overseas. This is because British apps (mostly TV & gambling), do not work when you are overseas due to geo-targeting. Apps nowadays have the technology to be able to sniff out your location by seeing which IP address you are using to access the internet.

RECOMMENDED: If you need a VPN that will unblock BBC iPlayer and other UK TV apps, then we recommend Privatrax. This is one of the few VPN providers that unblocks BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 and My5 (as most are now blocked) If you use coupon POMMYTV then you can pay £29.99 for a year instead of £49.99. That works out to just £2.49 / $2.99 per month. When you consider that Nord VPN and Express VPN work out at £9/£12 pr month, this works out a lot better. Simply visit (Don't forget that promo code POMMYTV)
