I hope I'm posting in the right section of the forum.

We're living in the U.S. but planning on moving to Europe (Germany to be exact) pretty soon. Right now we're using cable and appleTV. My question is if you have an idea how I could still watch my my favorite channels while being outside of the U.S. Especially the ones that need a U.S. cable subscription. There should be legal ways in today's time? With people moving all over the place every couple of years? For the German channels these things exist per subscription services or the TV channel app plus VPN server.

Help, please!

Through http, forget about it. Once the signal hits the European server TV signals (itunes purchases will) won't go through.

But what about Kodi? Via the Nvidia Shield for example?

You can use a VPN such as https://www.ibvpn.com and use a US ip address to continue viewing programs.

I'm already using a VPN service to watch German TV here in the US. My question is, what about TV channels that ask for a US cable subscription?
