There are a wealth of VPN tools out there but we recommend the likes of Express VPN, VPN Hub, Panda, Cyber Ghost, Nord VPN, Pure VPN, Vypr VPN and

All of them will cost a little bit of dollar although some of the tools offer free 30-day trials.

There are also multiple packages depending on whether you want to hide ads or block privacy filters, etc.

However, the cheapest and simplest package is all you need to watch Surviving R Kelly from the U.K.

Each VPN tool comes with different guidelines.

However, they’re all relatively easy to follow but may vary depending on whether you have a MacBook or Windows software.

The key is remembering to select ‘U.S’ when prompted to select where you would like your new VPN to be registered – this is rerouting your VPN from the U.K to the U.S.A.
