    All of Person of Interest is on Netflix for streaming. Stop jumping through hoops.

    I've learned how to load several apps on a FireTV stick, get free VPN -- and -- would you believe Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is not on Netflix?

    The video I watched regarding VPNs vs Unblockr scared me. He kept saying they keep their logs longer than unblockr (he isn't making any money on unblockr) and that even though the VPNs say they don't keep logs, they might. Here's the video in case you're interested. . I really would like your opinion should you choose to watch the video. If not, no worries. Maybe he's wrong.

    How did you come upon unblock? Longer is vague. How much longer? 3 mintues? 3hours? How long does NordVPN keep their logs?

    Unblock VPN | TechRadar

    unblock boilerplate: ""The Provider is allowed to save operational and localization data that are created or processed..."

    Techradar comment: "What does this mean? We would guess it's talking about server logs and maybe session information, but the clause is so vague it could include almost anything."

    So, it sounds like unblock is saving something. It think it would be hard to not keep session info while streaming.

    My VPN lists came from techradar, CNET, PCMag and the likes. Trusted sources for various technical reviews.

    Almost all of the "best VPN", "cheapest VPN", "how to install VPN on Firestick TV" articles have paid links including to their favorite VPN.

    I got unblockr.net from the video I posted. He is not selling anything. Supposedly unblockr only keeps streaming info for 5 minutes.

    They are using a system that sounds different than VPN. It sounds like their system leans heavily on hardware which probably maintains no logs after a session is over. If you feel it works for you, go ahead and try unblockr.

    Both unblockr and VPNs at least hide information from easy access. I'm sure they dispose of logs quickly to avoid the cost of subpoenas. I prefer VPNs that are outside of US jurisdiction.

    I've got an email into them. I don't see a price or an app or anything to use for Unblockr. Hopefully, they will get back to me.

    Pricing for both DNS and VPN are here.

    If thinking of the DNS portion - there would be no app. No different than changing your home DNS settings from your ISP to Google DNS

    If memory serves, I think on the video he mentioned $30.00 a year. Anyway, I have an email and now a ticket into Unblockr. Hopefully my questions will be answered.

    Thanks for responding.

    Update: Now when I go to the Unblockr website I get prices. Not sure what happened before. But it's $20.00 a year. Not bad!

    Yeah not bad. Most VPNs are ~$70 per year.

    I thought my VPN broke my access to Travelocity bookings. I tried Hotels.com and got a "We're undergoing maintenance." Reassuring. Orbitz owns most of the travel sites, so all of them are down.

    I just paid $19.99 for a year of unlimited Pro VPN with Windscribe. The deal ends today. I stumbled on it when I found a lifetime, unlimited PRO VPN deal with Windscribe for ~$69.99.

    IPVanish. One of the easiest and the best VPN for firestick. The reason I like and recommend IPVanish to everyone is that it officially lets you stream on devices like Kodi, Stremio, Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and many more. It has some awesome servers which let you access and stream geo-restricted content anytime anywhere. I'm paying $77.99 for one year package.

    I have been using TTV for awhile now. Streaming is perfectly fine. There is an option to download but I would not do that, just stick to streaming. The TiVo remote won't control it.

    I'm adding IPVanish, TTV and Windscribe to my Black Friday / Cyber Monday shopping list.
