Each day more and more people go digital and cut cable. Cable TV is dying since everything you can find on Cable you can find online and much more. It is more convenient (much more), it has wider libraries and even costs less. We decided to pick 20 best online streaming sites for you that will make you get rid of cable and enjoy any TV show or movie you want.
Many of the streaming service sites are geo-restricted to a specific country like the UK or US. To bypass geo-restrictions you will need a VPN, since it changes your IP address and encrypts your traffic, you can appear to be based in any country.
Our top 3 recommended VPNs:
NordVPN ($3.49/month) – the best VPN out there that will make it easy for anyone to bypass region blocks, stream favorite TV shows and also stay secure and private while doing so. You can use the coupon code “TIPSFROMGEEKS” at the checkout to grab the best deal.
Surfshark ($1.99/month) – a fast VPN service that gives so much for very little: strong encryption, unlimited devices, etc. You can also use the dedicated coupon code “SHARKGEEK” to get the deal.
Perfect Privacy ($8.95/month) – Perfect Privacy offers a good and high-quality service but it’s pretty expensive compared to most other VPN service providers.
