Fort Boyard and VPNs

By | June 22, 2019

Don’t forget! Fort Boyard starts on France 2 tonight at 8pm UK. You’ll likely need a VPN to watch live, or hopefully they’ll be putting them up officially on Youtube later on this evening. Our discussion page is here.

Speaking of VPNs, I fear too many services are catching on to Tunnelbear which has done me well over the years, but my sub runs out end of June. Does anyone have any recommendations? I don’t mind paying money. Sounds like Express VPN and NordVPN are well regarded.

    Nord got patchy for me a few months ago, had to switch over to ExpressVPN. Haven’t had much trouble with it so far.

    Episodes do seem to be going on Youtube, first episode already up.

    I posted briefly on Twitter that I was having difficulties with Windscribe, but that may have just been France 2’s site not liking Firefox for some reason; when I switched to Opera, I had a perfect stream throughout.

    You’ll still get much more reliability and functionality out of a paid option, of course, but for people who only want Fort Boyard and the occasional Schlag, Windscribe’s free option still seems to be adequate.

    It’s just a shame Holland and Belgium aren’t also covered by the free settings!

    Yes another vote for Express VPN here. It’s pricey but works a treat

    Throwing another option into the mix, Unlocator seems to do the business.

    I use NordVPN, and I haven’t noticed any “patchiness” like @Clive Of Legend mentioned. I just finished watching The Umbrella Academy ep 8 on Netflix US in high quality, and there were no buffering or stops :/ …and back to the theme : Looking forward to seeing Maëva Coucke on 29 of June… This is show is epic and immortal, and it’s a must-see. If someone doesn’t know where to get a VPN, this is with 75% here. It might look for other options, it’s just my suggestion
