We also have a dynamic IP address setup and our VPN (Nord) works fine. But I believe you can set up a static IP address if you know your way around the inner reaches of your operating system.Smart DNS doesn’t work for me for TV on 4G internet due to regular IP address change. Do VPN s have the same problem?
There are plenty of YouTube videos showing how to set up a static IP address.We asked Movistar, which was a series of put on hold- call dropped, before predictably being advised we couldn’t have a fixed Ip address. Our DNS subscription still works until the Ip changes then the Apps - particularly iplayer play up and stop working as understandably as they have spotted you trying to access from a Spanish Ip address. I would be interested if anyone can explain how I can set up a static Ip address.
i have n the past stayed away from VPNs as they “ slow the internet ( only about 12 meg as it is) and content providers apparently regularly block access) . Maybe I need to revisit it and have a look at Nord.
I have our LG smart tv set with DNS via Nord but its a bit hit and miss. Cant get channel 4 and the ITV player runs as long as you dont mind 20mins of adverts between each programme.Smart DNS is the way to go.
You can sign up for Prime Spain, I still get lots of movies and of course all the Amazon TV and kindle unlimited and its half the uk cost. Think it is €39 a year.We have been using Smart DNS proxy with no problems with BBC iPlayer, ITV hub or Channel 5, although we now cannot get a subscription with Amazon Prime or Kindle unlimited from their UK site. The problem with Amazon is they check the address of your credit/Debit card, and we only have our Spanish address even though we have UK debit and credit cards. Before the end of the Brexit transition period we had no problem with Kindle unlimited.
