The best VPN services to watch your favorite shows with

For the uninitiated, a VPN is a Virtual Private Network. They can be very useful in the modern world, especially if you don’t want sites taking your information and selling it to big corporations so they can laugh at all of your most shameful internet habits. But hey – maybe you just want a bit of goddamn privacy.

VPNs also allow you to stream and watch your favorite shows when out of the country, making them essential for anyone who doesn’t want to have to deal with the crappy selection of UK Netflix while visiting family. But which are the best to use? Here’s our quick guide to some of the best VPNs out there.
