Living in the Middle East, a VPN service is a must if you want any kind of service such as tv and streaming music. It also helps view the occasional site that "does not conform to local laws". ;-) Having read a number of recommendations on an Apple discussion forum, of all places, BlackVPN appeared to be the one for me - a US, UK and European IP address for 10 Euro for 3 months. I was paying 14 Euro for just a UK IP, and that was each month.
The service itself is flawless, I have not had any trouble streaming TV/music from either the UK or the US. It was a breeze to set up, with clear and detailed instructions on the BlackVPN website.
I would not hesitate in recommending it.
