The idea for this page started when Chris and Jesper was
travelling through South America. Chris is from the UK, and Jesper is from the Netherlands.
They met on a hostel in Thailand when they where backpacking.
Chris desperatly wanted to watch BBC iPlayer, and Jesper wanted to watch Ziggo. However, this was not as easy as it sounds. Both of these, and extremely many other TV cnannelse, are blocked outside UK and Netherland.
To access both of these TV channels they found out that they could use a
VPN. This is a way to change your IP adress so others on the internet believes you are in a
different country. Both Jesper and Chris love to travel, so they have been using VPNs for
Because of this they wanted to start the site StreamTVabroad, so they could help other travellers and expats stream TV across countries. Several other people has helped them create this site since then.
The comparison of different VPN products of this page is a result of tests we have done with different TV channels. We have focused on speed, amount of servers, how easy the VPN is to download and use, price, customer service, ability to block TV channels and similar abilities.
To be able to run this site and also have some profit we receive some compensation fees when a user buys a VPN from a product we have on our page. This can also in some places affect the placement of the VPNs in our ranking tables.
We hope you find this site useful, and if you have any questions we are happy to help.
