Watch GOT 7 first with VanishedVPN.

The hugely anticipated Game Of Thrones Season 7 airs on Sunday 16th July in the US at 9pm ET (Monday midday in Australia).  Last time around, Australians were the biggest culprits for illegally downloading Season 6, but due to new privacy laws, and blocking of Torrent sites, Aussies will be looking to find a reliable, legal solution to get their fix.

By using VanishedVPN, you can access a number of sites which would normally be blocked based on your location, and be the first to get Game Of Thrones S07, and its perfectly legal (see comment from Malcolm Turnbull). In this guide, we will give you some of our tips to access HBO and watch GOT.

Firstly, you will need a VanishedVPN subscription. Sign up here, and follow the instructions to get connected.

1 – (access via our Sport VPN)
Hotstar premium carries HBO, and is incredible value at around $4 AUD per month. There is also a 28 day free trial. Apart from GOT, the premium subscription allows you to access premium movies and sport. See our guide to signing up to Hotstar premium here.

2 – Amazon Prime (USA) – Connect via our USA VPN
Amazon are currently offering a free 30 day trial on prime ($10.99 per month after) + a free 7 day trial on HBO ($14.99 per month after).  Make sure that you connect to the VPN before signing up otherwise you may end up at on your local site.

3 – Hulu (access via our USA VPN)
Hulu recently announced that they will be adding HBO to their package in time for the launch of GOT S7. They currently have a free trial. After that, packages start at $7.99 per month (with ads). We believe HBO will be a premium add on (a further $14.99 per month). See our guide to signing up to Hulu here.

4 – Sling TV (access via our Sport or USATV VPNs)
Sling TV offers a high quality alternative to USA Cable channels, with apps on most devices, our experience of the quality with Sling has been very good. Packages start at $20 per month, with HBO an extra $15 on top. This is not a cheap option, but don’t overlook it if you’re looking for quality.

Aside from these options, you may also want to check out the following sites which all have an HBO option : Playstation Vue,  Directv now

Don’t miss Glastonbury 2017

Glastonbury festival is the biggest and best musical festival in the world. Headliners this year include Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Liam Gallagher, Kaiser Chiefs, Ed Sheeran, Chic, Barry Gibb, Emeli Sande, Lorde, The Pretenders and many many more.

If you aren’t one of the lucky 175000 people to have a ticket to this amazing event, the next best thing is to catch all of the action live on BBC iplayer. BBC iplayer is normally blocked if you are outside of the UK, but by using VanishedVPN, and connecting to our UK servers, all of the content becomes available to you wherever you are in the world.

The BBC coverage will include live sets, and catch up streams, so you won’t miss your favourite acts, wherever you are in the world. For the full line up, check the BBC site here.

Watch the ‘Love actually’ sequel with VanishedVPN

Red nose day is a charity event that occurs each year in the UK. This year, as part of the TV event, Richard Curtis created a special ‘Red Nose Actually’ clip , which was billed as a sequel to the hugely popular film ‘Love actually’. The internet has been buzzing about this, and there have been very few sightings of any clips on the usual channels (youtube etc).

By connecting to our UK or Sport VPN’s, you can access BBC iplayer which carries this clip. Just navigate to the ‘Red nose day’ program, and fast forward to 2 hours 33 minutes, and you will be able to view the ‘Red Nose actually clip’.

Obviously, the purpose of this is to raise money for charity, so please do the right thing, and donate.
