If you want to watch ITV Hub outside of the UK, then you will need a VPN. This technology switches your IP address to that of one from the United Kingdom, so that you will appear to be back home when you can be anywhere else in the world.

This technology has been around for years and works for all other UK only TV apps such as BBC iPlayer, Channel 4’s All4, Channel 5’s My5 and many others. TV Catch-up and TV Player apps are often used for watching live British TV channels and they too unblock when using a UK VPN

A VPN will install fairly easily on all major Laptops, Tablets, Smart Phones and Smart Routers and will allow you to access applications and websites from the country where that particularly VPN server is located. This is a great technology for watching TV apps like ITV Hub when you are on holiday as you will see that when you try to use this app outside of the UK it will say something along the lines of “It looks as if there’s a problem. Please refresh your page or check out our ITV Hub Help”. When you switch the VPN, you will be able to bypass this message and start to watch.

In addition to using a VPN, you will need to switch off your GPS as this can still leak out your location. This is simply to fix though by going into location services in your devices settings.

There are many uses for having a VPN installed on your devices other than just being able to watch TV applications from abroad. When you connect to the internet via a VPN, you give yourself both internet security and anonymity. If you are on a public Wi-Fi network, then you are leaving yourself wide open to hackers being able to infiltrate your personal data. When you use a VPN, your data is sent via an encrypted tunnel, so that the hacking of your data is almost impossible. Security is the reason why now nearly 1 in 6 internet users worldwide use a VPN when they are online.

Internet anonymity is also important to many people as it gives you the chance to be able to browse and download anything that you like without either your local internet service provider or local government authority from being able to see what you are doing. This does not mean to say that you are doing anything wrong online, it is just that you may not want them to know what you are doing. Google and Amazon are very big on seeing just what you are doing online, one easy way of making sure that they cannot see your every move is by using a VPN.
