And since the company provides access to all servers with every subscription, customers would be able to unlock premium services from all 20 countries with just one account.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth –

British TV Anywhere does not impose speed or bandwidth limits upon its subscribers. The company’s servers are connected to 100 MBPS nodes and the provider makes it a point not to oversell its service. The company buys new servers when its servers are used by a certain number of users so you would be able to experience ultra-fast speeds even for demanding activities such as downloading, streaming, VOIP and gaming.

Privacy Settings

Although the service is primarily targeted towards those who want to watch TV online, it can also be used to protect your online sessions from snooping and security threats. The service secures data and privacy with 128 bit encryption allowing you to secure your private data at public Wi-Fi networks as well as protect your online activities from surveillance and hacking.

As far as the logging policy is concerned, the company does not record browsing activities; it just saves usage logs for 48 hours. The usage logs do not contain any personally identifiable information and the company makes it a point not to share personal information of the users with third parties.

Supported Operating Systems

British TV Anywhere works flawlessly with Windows, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android and Linux. The company offers a user-friendly client for Windows but other OS need manual configuration. The service can be used from 3 different devices at the same time allowing you to secure all your devices or share your account with your family members.

Customer Support

British TV Anywhere offers customer support through tickets. The company promises to respond to all queries within 12 hours (usually much faster). The company has also published detailed troubleshooting instructions on its website so it is possible to fix common errors easily.

Pricing Options

British TV Anywhere’s paid subscription plans are available from 1 Euro for 24 hours, 4.24 Euros for 1 week, 6.79 Euros for 1 month, 19.55 Euros for 3 months, 36.55 Euros for 6 months, 59.99 Euros for a year. The company even offers a free trial but it comes with severe limitations (128 KBPS speed, automatic disconnection after 7 minutes). The company does have a refund policy in place but the refunds are not unconditional.

Final Verdict

Overall, British TV Anywhere manages to impress on most parameters. The service provides a fast and reliable way of watching one’s favorite TV shows and On-demand streaming services from any location in the world. We recommend that you subscribe to the 1 day plan first and then upgrade to a long term plan if you are happy with the speed and service on offer.
