iWatchTVAbroad is a privacy solution from a Czech Republic based company. Established in 2011, the team behind the service has good experience in delivering IT solutions to customers. This iWatchTVAbroad Review will focus on the features offered by the iWatchTVAbroad VPN service and reveal whether you should subscribe to it.

Server Locations and Site Access – iWatchTVAbroad has multiple VPN gateways in United States and United Kingdom. The service is primarily targeted towards frequent fliers and expats who wish to access their favorite TV shows from abroad. Once you are connected to an iWatchTVAbroad server, you would get an IP address from US or UK allowing you to access your favorite streaming services and TV sites without facing the dreaded “Content Unavailable” message. The service makes it easy to unlock On-Demand services like BBC iPlayer, ABC Player, Netflix, NBC, 4OD, Pandora, Demand 5, Amazon Prime, Sky Go, UK TV, CWTV, Hulu, HBO Go, TNT, Xfinity, Lovefilm, Eurosport, USA Network, MLB, STV, iTV, CBS, Vevo, MTV, FOX, Vudu and NHL from any location in the world. In addition, the service allows you to bypass the firewalls and censorship deployed by countries like UAE, China, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Thailand and access sites such as Twitter, Gmail, Facebook, Skype, Viber and YouTube from these locations. The service even allows unlimited server switching so you would be able to unlock both US and UK based premium content with just one subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth – iWatchTVAbroad is tailor made for demanding activities like streaming, downloading, gaming and VOIP. All the servers of the company are connected to at least 100 Mbit/s nodes allowing the company to deliver fast speeds and unlimited bandwidth to its customers. While there is no restriction on the amount of content that you can stream or download, the company may restrict bandwidth for users who consume more than 2 GB of bandwidth for several days in a row.

Privacy Settings – Apart from being a good streaming solution, iWatchTVAbroad is also an excellent privacy solution. The service protects your data and privacy with up to 256 bit encryption allowing you to secure your private data from hackers at public places and protect all kinds of online activities (for example, browsing, ICQ, emailing, FTP, VOIP) from snooping and surveillance.

The company does not monitor the online sessions of its users. However, it does capture timestamp, bandwidth, duration and IP address (original and assigned) to enforce its terms of service. The company does not hand over customer data to anyone unless there is an illegal activity involved.

Supported Operating Systems – iWatchTVAbroad works with a wide range of systems like Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8), Mac OS X, Linux, iPads, iPhones, iPod Touch, Android devices and popular routers (D-Link, Microtik, Linksys, TP-Link, Zyxel, Sitecom).

The company has published detailed setup instructions for all OS and protocols so you should be able to configure the service within minutes of signing up.

Customer Support – iWatchTVAbroad offers customer support through a ticketing system. The company has published troubleshooting instructions for many connection and speed problems on its website plus the support team can even perform remote installation for your through Teamviewer.

Pricing Options – iWatchTVAbroad’s unlimited speed and bandwidth plans are available from $9.99 per month, $55 for 6 months and $99 for a year. The company even provides a 2 day free trial but the session time for trial accounts is restricted to 5 minutes per session.

Final Verdict – Overall, iWatchTVAbroad delivers a praiseworthy service.
