Tell me, how do I get to "iPlayer using VPN", please.

Might be helpful to note that aspect in future posts

Exactly! It would be very helpful.
I tried Netflix so far, and am very disappointed. There is nothing there, or I do not know, how to search.

If you are not doing so already, search for stuff on Netflix on your computer first, save it to your watch list.

I find it much easier to that then use the search via Apple, Smart TV or Xbox

For out of country stuff I used the Hola extension (computer only) in google to access additional stuff.
