Useful information, thanks, Squashplayer. I use www.UKProxy.tv
for my VPN. I have my laptop and iPad set up with this so that I can download library books from the UK. I don't have a smart TV but I have a separate router set up with my VPN account, so could use this with a Firestick, etc. However, according to Dan at UKProxy (he is extremely helpful) I should be able to configure the Firestick with VPN so that I don't need my separate router. I plan to bring a Firestick out in January and try it out. Dan has already e-mailed me instructions on how to do this. My VPN connection is only about 10% slower than my regular Movistar connection. All this is fun, but I am still very happy with my Premier IPTV service - no blocked UK channels there!
