Yeah I think that's the problem, when I'm in my house I seem to be fine, when I'm at my girlfriends everything is blocked, we have different providers.

I never miss a game, but it's getting harder I need a solution, might even have to pay! What about Palace TV do they now have all palace matches live and does it actually work?

A VPN will always throttle your speeds. I go from nearly 400mbps to under 100 when I turn mine on.

Once you turn your vpn on, it's on. Your IP address has changed and you're "in a different country". Some people like using one all the time as they like the anonymity. Every website etc they visit shows them at an IP address in a different country than they're actually in.

I only ever turn mine on if there are IPTV blocks. Change country and it's fine.

I rarely ever use mine TBH. A lot of the 'decent' providers (I believe) can sort it their end before it gets to you. Only on very rare occasions do I ever have to turn mine on. However, if you rely on IPTV and the thought of not being able to watch a Palace game is life and death stuff (me!), then having one is essential, as much as having back up services to your main one.

Thanks for all your comments . Surfshark looks decent ? Offer of £1.81 per month for 2 years ( but paid up front ) , 30 day money back guarantee and no loss of speed ? . I have very limited knowledge but many articles say be wary of sites that offer free VPN . From comments here , for what i need , all i need to do is to set a country and switch VPN either on and off .

Yep. Good price and good provider. Whatever you do, don't set your country to Australia or some other far away land.

VPN seemed to work well on Saturday for Palace game . However , i have noticed that when i have had video call , my cam freezes and my friends cam also does a few seconds later , before no picture at all . Could this be linked to VPN ?

They have been aggressive with the 3pm IP blocks recently. I've found a VPN to be more or less essential.

Is Sport's Donkey still going or is there another alternative? Got a little un due at the start of December, so I may as well get some cricket in while I'm not getting any sleep...

I used to be with SD but gave up just about a year ago on Stinkys recommendation. Since then I have only had one issue and that was with my ISP blocking that a VPN sorted. Glad I made the change

I suspect much will depend on your ISP. Mine doesn't seem to block anything, but many of the larger ones will.
