Here at My Expat Network we know most of our subscribers are using our VPN service to access online TV content.
Whether it’s iPlayer and ITV Hub in the UK, or online content from around the world, such as NBC in America, TF1 in France or TV Norge in Norway.
We want to provide the best possible viewing experience for our valued subscribers, so we offer as many tips and tricks as possible.
The first thing you need to consider when using your PC or MacBook to watch streaming video content from online providers, is which browser to use.
There ar lots of browsers available…in fact more than 20 !
Although the top six dominate the market.
We recommend that if you use a PC/laptop you should use Microsoft Edge to watch online content with our VPN, and for Mac users on a MacBook or iMac the best option is Safari.
Our recommendations are based purely on our own experiences and the experience of our subscribers around the world, and we value the customer feedback we receive through our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter which confirms our findings.
Having a powerful computer processor and as much available RAM as possible will make your streaming experience more pleasurable, and mean you can stream in HD. If you don’t have a high specification machine we recommend you set the definition of your video stream to 720p or even 420p to reduce buffering.
We will do a more extensive blog on video streaming hardware, including streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire Cube, the Roku box and Chromecast in the coming weeks, so please keep in touch.
