Expat Shield is a simple VPN software that provides access to UK sites such as BBC iPlayer and ITV outside of the UK.
Normally, you can not do this because only users with access to these services in the UK can do so. However, Expat Shield addresses your IP address via the UK IP address as if you were still located in the UK, no matter where in the world you are.
The installation for Expat Shield hasa short length, and you get the option if you want to install the Expat Shield toolbar, which you can easily decline if you want. After launching Expat Shield, your browser automatically opens with a message indicating whether the Expat Shield is connected correctly or not. It usually connects quickly and appears in a series of random TV links below where you can ignore it.
How to do it, use it
Enter the address in the browsergo to the BBC website and choose iPlayer. Surfing should not be slower than surfing without Expat Shield. Just pick the program you want to watch and iPlayer starts playing as if you were in the UK. The streaming is fast and stable and you can skip it and scroll right away.
The good: Expat Shield can be used for free. The only thing you have to do is to place a banner on top of the browser. You can lose it by clicking on the “X” field,but if you switch to another page, the banner will reappear.
expatShield does not affect the surf sites outside of iPlayerer, but if you want to disable it, you will need to double-click the shortcut to the desktop and the main browser panel from which you can clear the VPN connection.
Expat Shield also has additional bonuses that anonymize your footprint on the Internet. For example, if you use the Google field in the search browserExpat Surfer asks if you want to enable or disable tracking on Google Search and Surf History.
Very few errors with Expat Shield, except that some users have found that it is sometimes difficult to determine the IP address in the UK and the destination in the US (the AnchorFree developer is in the US), although we have no problems with it have our tests.
If you have British television, including BBC and ITV, outside of the UKExpat The Surfer is a brilliant free solution.
