Are we stuck with VPN use forever?

I posted a similar reply on another thread, the use of freely available/publicly available panels to host IPTV services means ISP intervention will only get worse for most of them, so VPN will become the norm.

There are some out there that are running on bespoke panels and have a few other methods of avoiding the ISP filtering.

Think you on an amazing router though.

I use a AC68U running merlin firmware 200mb line i get around 165mb through Nord VPN setup on the router its not a massive loss but it is still a loss.

If your running VPN on sat boxes and IPTV devices you are definetly going to suffer losses via VPN.
I was looking at a second hand ASUS DSL-AC68U AC1900 at the moment I have got virgin media hub 3 conneted via modem mode to tp-link deco m4 mesh system , could I connect the ASUS AC68U AC1900 to the virgin media hub 3 then to the deco 4 mesh system via ethernet so I can use the ASUS AC68U AC1900 as vpn ?

I am not sure the DSL version can be used the way you would want it to. I have recently de-commisioned an RT-AC68U AC1900 .from a VM hub 3 and replaced it with an RT-AC86U. PM me if interested. Donation of your choice to wheelo's homeless charity.

As per woody6222 explanation i doubt that is going to work. In theory his RT version should work.

I made a typo with my model number on the quote you made of my post its the A86U i currently have. Early signs of loosing it i think.

I'm back trying iptv again, it's been a few years since I last tried it.
I'm just wondering if a lot of people are using a vpn for iptv?
I've had a slap on the wrist via my isp when I used an open torrent tracker but now only use private trackers one if which I pay for vip.
I've been thinking about a vpn for a while so perhaps iptv will be a nod towards it.

Loads use them as standard now , some only turn them on when needed like a block during football.

Personally if you can use a vpn on your device 24/7 then do it , just check with whoever you buy off that they allow vpn's.

Alot do use vpns for iptv and for the blocks in place it's generally needed now. Best to have it just in case.

For torrents public or private trackers you really should use vpn. Have had warnings from VM few years ago and that was torrents from private trackers.

Now If I really wanted to download a torrent I just do it via real debrid.

Vpns are widely available and nord constantly advertise on commercial tv. Anyone using ipee should have one in place

Same as me mate. RD's torrents feature is awesome.

Only last resort will I use torrents directly as have vpn anyway.

Only thing I have noticed some of the private trackers I'm on don't work with RD. Seems they have a work round not to work with RD and others.

Use RD or for abit more price a seedbox for private trackers. Regarding IPTV it's just cat and mouse with VPN and weekends. Normally a decent IPTV will sort it out their end but no harm in asking if you're allowed to use one your end.
