VPN for streaming

Hey guys,

Can you please give me advise on a VPN for streaming (netflix, prime, disney) ?

Mainly to watch shows in Spanish (Mexico) that I cannot get locally. I see that Express VPN seems to be the number 1 choice but a bit pricey for my needs.

I have a 20Mbps and use a nvidia shield tv.

cheers !!

Don't go with PrivateInternetAccess if watching other country's Netflix is important to you.

I use PrivateInternetAccess and I disable it from working when I'm streaming Netflix. I use it for a few other geo-restricted websites and rarely have any issues. Some apps are hit & miss (i.e. they will work sometimes and not other times) such as Bell's FibeTV app or CraveTV where it sometimes works and other times doesn't work (even when selecting a Canadian VPN server).

I've had some issues with some websites and PrivateInternetAccess (i.e. the webpage will either not work/open or the website won't accept my login). When this happens, I just turn on the snooze to either visit the website or log into the website. The websites that sometimes gives me issues with PrivateInternetAccess are Fitbit, Yelp, Creditkarma, and sometimes even RedFlagDeals. I think this happens when PrivateInternetAccess gives me an IP address which is blacklisted on their system.

I also use SurfShark. Its great for Streaming. But I find that Netflix seems to target these popular VPNs and I have to jump from city to city. Plus its terrible at torrenting or maybe my settings are poor.
