Question

VPN's

I have been researching VPN's & I see the highest rated. BUT, I still do not understand their advantage - specifically to TV watching. As I understand it, I - a cable subscriber - must continue subscribing to have the cable "box". AND, apparently I must subscribe to every channel I want to watch - in which case I do not see the advantage to VPN. I would like to know what hardware I need, whether I can watch a show I want ANY time, or only in REAL time when it is airing. Can I pause shows & pick up from where I paused?? Is there a link to an informative article "for dummies" that is clear & concise?

Many are just scams.

As such I've yet to find CNET write "use this one."

As to what you want, you are on a CBS sponsored forum so you risk a discussion lock about "getting around" geolocking.
