If you’re reading this, I assume you have a good reason. You’re interested in watching Fox News or some of its popular show, The Six. Maybe you live in the U.S., and just can’t get enough of Judge Jeanine Pirro. Or maybe you’re simply looking for ways to game on the go, and don’t want to be restricted by region when it comes to playing. Whatever your reason, I have good news for you: you can get the vast majority of Fox shows legally, from any country, with a VPN.
Let’s take a quick trip back in time. The year is 2019, and you’ve just gotten out of jury duty. Or you’re on the verge of finishing up your jury duty, and are thinking about what you’ll do afterward. You’ve got a good job, an apartment, and a girlfriend who loves you. You’re going to spend the rest of your life being happy and stable. The only thing you want to do before then is sit in front of your TV and laugh at the antics of Judge Jeanine Pirro. Maybe you’re even going to binge watch The X Files. On the other hand, maybe you want to travel Europe in a RV with your friends and family. You can’t decide, so you watch Judge Pirro while you’re on the road, and you have a good time. That’s when you realize that you’ve been missing out on so much TV goodness. So you decide to buy a TV bundle that includes Fox, and begin binge watching.
You haven’t bought a TV bundle yet, but it’s the beginning of August. You’re in the middle of a sweltering New York City summer, and you decide that you need to cool off. You walk down the street, and a TV network offers you an amazing deal. You sign up for the bundle, which costs you just $3/mo., and you decide that this is the best TV experience you’ve ever had. You enjoy the shows, but you don’t feel like you can’t live without Judge Pirro. You want to know when her next appearance is, so you can set your DVR accordingly. You also realize that this is probably illegal, and you want to make sure you do everything you can to keep your new found freedom. What you do next is use a VPN to stream Fox shows to your TV. Just as you’re about to start a new relationship with your girlfriend, you have a new fight with your wife. You’ve been separated for a while, but you still love her, and want to make things right. This is when you decide to leave your family and your home in search of a new start. You’ve been traveling, and now you’re in a foreign country. You want to visit the local shrine and see the ancient artifacts. Unfortunately, the guards don’t speak English, and you can’t find an official tour guide to help you out. Since you can’t make it past the gate, you decide that getting some TV content to watch on the trip would be a good idea. You use your VPN to stream Fox shows from the U.S., and you start watching Judge Pirro on a distant TV, while enjoying the sites and sounds of the bustling city outside your window.
There are so many different ways that you could use a VPN to stream Fox. You could use the service to watch a few episodes of The Simpsons or Family Guy before going to bed. Or maybe you’ll watch the first few seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale, knowing that there are only a handful of episodes left. Maybe you want to use the VPN for Netflix, and binge watch seasons one through five of Stranger Things. There are so many options, and all of them are good. If you already have a TV, you could use the service to watch shows delivered by Hulu or PBS. The list of possibilities is endless. What’s more is that the services often have a wide range of clients, which means you don’t have to worry about whether or not your TV will accept the VPN’s IP address. It will most likely work fine, and you won’t have to do any additional settings.
Choose The Right Devices
One of the first things you need to do is choose the right devices. This will depend on how much content you want to watch. If you’re new to VPNs, you might want to consider buying a device that’s designed for streaming. These types of devices are usually more expensive than others, but they do a great job of hiding your identity from large companies, which could enable you to stream without worry. They also have the advantage of being able to handle lots of different connection types, so you don’t have to worry about what type of Internet connection you have. (3G, 4G, satellite, etc.) Another option is to use a cloud DVR, which is essentially a digital video recorder that’s stored on the cloud. This way, you can access the shows from anywhere. If you have a solid Internet connection, you can download the shows to watch whenever you want.
Find Out How To Properly Use A VPN
Once you have your devices and content lined up, it’s time to learn how to properly use a VPN. Fortunately, the Internet is full of helpful articles that can guide you in the right direction. What’s more is that many services offer a free trial, so you don’t have to risk your privacy (or your bank account) on a haphazard attempt at using a VPN. Even if you do end up using a VPN, you can minimize the risk by following some basic guidelines. For example, you don’t have to use the same username and password for every service you connect to; instead, use a different password for each one. Additionally, you can’t always be certain that a VPN is completely safe. So, even though you’re trying to protect your privacy, you can’t be too reckless. Lastly, using a VPN on a public Wi-Fi hotspot could be risky. Most hotspots are unprotected, which means anyone could potentially log your activity. So, if you must connect to public Wi-Fi to get your Internet connection, make sure you’re not doing anything that you wouldn’t want anyone to see. (Like watching a TV show or browsing the web for porn.)
Set Up The Right VPN Account
Once you have a good handle on using a VPN, you’ll want to set up the right account. This is especially important if you have lots of devices connected to the Internet. You can create a VPN account on most major service providers’ websites, or you can use their apps. Most accounts will require a valid email address, a username, and a password. Make sure you don’t use the same username and password for every service, as we discussed above. The most important thing is to make sure the email address you use for the account is confidential. If you use your real email address for the account, there’s always the risk that someone will discover your secret. On the other hand, if you use a fake email address, there’s more of a chance that your secret will stay hidden. (Unless your fake email address gets hacked, of course.) After you have your account set up, you can connect to the Internet with complete confidence, knowing that your personal information is protected. (Unless of course, your Internet Service Provider is also a hacker, in which case you’re pretty much screwed.)
Use Strong Passwords
If you’re worried about someone hacking your account or computer, you should be extremely cautious about the passwords you use. When it comes to our digital world, passwords are everything. If you use the same password for multiple services, or use a weak password, you could put yourself and your personal information at risk. We’re not talking about using a password manager here, we’re talking about you using simple, easy to remember passwords. The fewer characters there are in the password, the better. It is also important to use different passwords for different services. For example, don’t use myname.123 as your Netflix password and your email password. These are almost certainly the same, so someone can easily access your Netflix account and steal your personal information. If you use the same password for multiple accounts, it makes it that much easier for someone to guess what your password is. Remember, stronger passwords mean less of a chance of getting hacked. (An email reminder from Netflix could be a good idea if you use the same password for both accounts.)
