Expat Shield is a VPN software that gives you access to a wide variety of TV websites based in the UK. This is a great feature that this software offers because typically, you would not be able to have access to these services unless you were in the United Kingdom. The way that this software works is by routing your IP address by using a UK IP address. This allows you to still have access to UK TV channels, despite where you are in the world.

Installing Expat Shield can be a long and tedious process. Once you run this program, you will be notified if the software has been installed properly or not. This software usually connects just fine and many random TV links will be featured so that you can start watching any programs that you would like to view.

To get started with this program, just type the BBC website address in your browser and then select the iPlayer. You can then choose whichever program you would like to watch and the iPlayer will work just like it would if you were in the United Kingdom.

The best thing about Expat Shield is that there is no charge to use it. The only downside of this software is that there is an advertising banner at the top that may be a nuisance to some users. However, you can easily get rid of this banner by clicking the "X".
