Need a VPS in UK that works with streaming services
edited July 2020 in Requests
I need a VPS in the UK that works with all streaming services (Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Amazon prime video, etc).
The requirements are:
KVM/XEN/etc - anything that will allow me to load a kernel module
5TB Bandwidth over 1gbps (or 500Mbps minimum).
Budget is open. Please PM me your offers if you can provide that. Obviously avoid putting it in here, as it will likely get blacklisted quickly if posted on a public forum.
Thank you much,
and happy Sunday!

Already tried it, does not work with the mentioned streaming services.
Thank you though.
Ah no worries, thanks for giving it a try.
I'd be interested to know what the limiting factor is to the streaming services you mention...?
GeoIP. Ranges that are used by hosting providers tend to get blocked pretty quickly
Thx for that, td...!
Has anyone come up with a suitable workaround on this one...?
Its pretty hard to find a working solution, since they tend to block ASNs that are in datacenters
Unfortunately they haven't answered since July, so I am still looking for a working solution :-)
Anyone know a provider that works - feel free to PM me (don't mention them here, as that will get them blacklisted pretty quickly).
As far as I am aware iplayer blocks based on ip not network. I have had ovh vps work fine with iplayer.
I use an ovh uk vps wireguard vpn and it works fine on iplayer.
Just make sure you core dump if you see one of these outside your window:
Lmao nice 😂
Netflix is a difficult one. VMHaus works fine for Prime and iPlayer (and ITV hub, etc.)
If you find a provider that works with Netflix, I also would be very interested. I imagine it might be quite hard to do though as Netflix are very on it with blocking.
Any reason why you guys don't want to grab one of the lifetime deals of the long-established VPN providers like (Keepsolid, Ivacy, FastestVPN..) for unblocking? I imagine it's much less a hassle then having to switch VPS IPs ever so often if your provider gets blacklisted by Flix.
For me it's just way more convenient to ssh into a box, get_iplayer a program and then listen from wherever I am without the hassle of using a vpn client. But if I don't find a provider vpn it is.
So, what is an average lifetime of a lifetime deal?
You can do this by changing ns to a vpn provider's 'smart dns' hijacking resolver on any the V PS
Check my signature for my comparison chart. Some of the lifetime VPNs, like Keepsolid, I have since 2016. It also does not have an expiry day.
VPNUnlimited/Keepsolid is the best lifetime VPN deal to get right now imho and also supports Wireguard.
You can get it here: https://stacksocial.com/sales/vpn-unlimited-lifetime-subscription (39, 99$). There are deals and discounts code ever so often making the price drop to somewhere in between 15-30$. If there is a special Streaming service you wanna unblock ask live chat/mail support before getting lifetime deal
Ivacy also is good for unblocking (nice browser extension), but their android app is buggy and speeds are mediocre if you dont use for streaming only. Their lifetime deal also has an expiry date of 5 years (after you supposedly need to contact support to renew).
Ivacy can also be found on stacksocial.
