As I don't trust any (free) VPN I only use it in conjunction with DroidWall to make sure that none of my personal data goes through the SuperVPN connection. To do this I whitelisted SuperVPN and TVPlayer in DroidWall and I activate Droidwall and SuperVPN whenever I want to watch TVPlayer. A bit inconvenient but worth the effort I think
Thank you very much for your reply! I also don't trust free VPNs. I read that Hola VPN was selling the idle bandwith from the customers using their services to companies and because of their users connection were used to performe a DDoS attack. This was all confirmed by the CEO of the company. Really scary.
You mentioned that the block is on the server, is the block is made by the app server as a general rule or by each channel individually?
One solution would be to use a service like UnblockUS instead of a VPN. It's paid but much more secure and faster.
Do you know if this app supports chromecast? A VPN would block the chromecast connection but UnblockUS wouldn't. I'm gonna run some tests here to see what I can discover.
I had no idea that DroidWall existed! I was using an iPhone a few months ago and just now started to use Android. Thank you very much for the recommendation
