Web Secret #368: private internet access

Are you a fan of British TV series like Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge, and the like?

Then you know that by the time you are watching the show in the US, it was already aired months earlier in the UK.

This pisses me off.

I have tried to subvert this by logging on to and sneaking onto the British ITV player.

Does not work. They know I come from the US. And I am refused access.

No more, thanks to

Now to be honest, most people who subscribe to PIA do so out of concerns about Internet privacy and cybercrime. That has never been a sufficient incentive for me to shell out the $40 per year it takes to get the service.

Watching British telly at the same time as my friends from across the ocean? Sign me up.

But don't listen to me, watch the video.
