How to watch Netflix/Hulu while traveling abroad

Have you ever seen the following error message when you're traveling outside of the country?  If not, just wait...it will happen.  You're going to be on a trip and you know you shouldn't be spending that valuable time watching Netflix but you keep seeing stuff in your timeline about the latest episode of Star or some other show people are addicted to and you tell yourself, "Ok, I'm just going to watch one show."  So you get comfortable, open up your laptop or plug in your firestick (I never travel without one) and then this...

If you've never tried to watch Netflix or Hulu outside of America then you may not know that it's not available everywhere, and in the case of Netflix, the shows that are available are different in different countries.  

How do you get around this?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  The short answer: a VPN service.  BUT not all VPNs work. Netflix and Hulu are smart and tricky, sometimes they can tell when you're trying to use a VPN.  The key is getting a VPN that has tons of servers. 

But what if you don't plan on watching TV while you travel?

Well look at you spending your travel time wisely.  But you will use the internet right?  Even if you're not traveling and are just using a public wifi hotspot in a coffee shop, you still need a VPN. VPNs provide not only excellent privacy, but also an extra layer of security that can defend against public WiFi hacks that anti-virus software can’t block. So, in short, you need a VPN.  Link below to the VPN that we use and recommend, plus they accept crypto as a payment method for those of you that don't want to be reliant on banks to access your funds when you travel.
