    any of the free ones didnt work properly for me.

    Tiny download limits and a lot of their locations didn't work

    I use Nord VPN very relaible and not expensive

    OK Tunnelbear free appears to work - I have had to turn location off on windows but the new location appears to be "unknown" rather than US - Where I have tunnelled to
    I am trying to watch US TV !!

    With TunnelBear you can tweet for an extra GB - no Twitter account? Set up up just for that. If you want to limit your usage to browsing ( and with only 1.5GB it won't last long if you don't then Tunnelbear provide browser extensions for most of them.

    I took NordVPN which works well and is pretty cheap if you look out for special offers. I don't recall exactly what deal I got but I paid up front for three years so it must have been cheap.

    Digibit, 2 a month with disc code. Great apparently for android boxes/streaming. Raved about on streaming forums. No limits as far as I know.

    He just needs a US ip so he can watch TV from American websites rather than hiding. I use Nord VPN which works for me in Germany

    Or in the OP's case, just wanting to tell a certain website that you are geographically some place else.
    Or, as in this country, if a government that can't be trusted with online privacy gets into power and you don't want to make it easy for them..
