Customers of the service can also unlock premium content and local services from multiple countries since the company doesn’t restrict its subscribers from switching servers.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth

Get Your TV Abroad delivers unlimited speed and unrestricted bandwidth to every customer. The company has great infrastructure in place (servers connected to at least 100 Mbit/s nodes) plus it also takes care not to overload its servers. While the service does not have monthly bandwidth quotas, the company reserves the right to restrict bandwidth for those users who consume more than 2 GB of bandwidth/day for several days in a row. The company permits bittorrenting activities from Slovakia and Sweden based servers so it becomes possible to anonymize P2P sessions.

Privacy Settings

Get Your TV Abroad can not unblock streaming websites, it can also secure your privacy on the web. The service uses the most common VPN protocols (PPTP, L2TP, SSTP and OpenVPN) and encrypts data with up to 256 bit encryption to deliver unmatched privacy and security on the web. If you connect to Wi-Fi hotspots at malls, airports, cafes or book shops then you must be aware of the dangers posed by hackers and sniffing programs at such places. With a Get Your TV Abroad subscription, you can not only protect your credit card numbers, passwords and social accounts from theft and misuse, you can also secure multiple types of online activities (including emails, ICQ, VOIP etc.) with just one click.

Get Your TV Abroad does not spy on the online activities of its users. However, the company does record IP address (original and assigned), timestamp and duration as well as bandwidth consumed per session. These logs are used only to enforce terms of service and monitor server performance. The company will never share your personal details with anyone unless you commit a crime.

Supported Operating Systems

Get Your TV Abroad works on Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhones, Android, iPads, iPod Touch, Nokia and Blackberry devices. In addition, it is possible to configure the service on a router and use it with PS3, Apple TV, Xbox, Smart TVs and other devices. The company has partnered with Sabai routers to offer pre-configured routers to its users. The company offers a dialer software for Windows but users of other systems need to configure the service manually.

Customer Support

Get Your TV Abroad provides customer support through live chat and support tickets. The support staff is even willing to provide remote support to customers who are not able to configure the service on their own.

Pricing Options

Get Your TV Abroad offers subscription based and one-time payment plans. The subscription based plans need a contract of at least a year and are available for 7.99 Euros per month (or 69.99 Euros per year). The One-time payment plans are great for short trips and cost 9.99 Euros for a month (or 24.99 Euros for 3 months).
