  1. TV via the Internet as an alternative to satellite

    yes that's what I was thinking ! I have 2 routers, so I can send my banking stuff through the normal system and the TV stuff through the VPN.   But on some routers, you can configure some traffic of the traffic to go through the VPN and some not, so if the source is from the Firestick then it will directed through the VPN and if the source is the PC (ip address ) then it will not use the VPN channel   That's why I was asking which router he/she has, maybe he/she does not need to buy a new one.   I have the 2nd gen firebox, and I notice that it is a lot quicker than the 2nd gen Firesticks ( when using at a friends place ). The is always performance over cost  
  2. TV via the Internet as an alternative to satellite

    yes I accept, I was wrong :)   configuring in the router is probably the best way, maybe jeba, has a good enough router that he/she can configure in the VPN in the router without the need to buy a 2nd one. Which router do you have jeba ?   By the way, if jeba buys a Firestick, only some of the VPN company's have native VPN apps, if he has a VPN company that does not support have  Firestick apps, then he/she would have to root his firestick in order to put on a third party VPN client.   I use Firebox, and consider it to be the best alternative at the moment, because I find the Firestick a bit slow and you can extend the memory in a more easy way, but costs a lot more.

    Not really sure why you want to a VPN if it works without one being installed !   The easiest way is to ( if possible ), check with your VPN company to see if they have an android VPN app, install that with your user name and password, it should just work .. well setup your VPN location to Germany..   If your VPN company does not offer and app then you can configure your phone's VPN client, with your VPN username and password. yeah, each phone and version of Android is slightly different in the way you have to set it up, so its best to put in google something like this   Your phones name/model  followed by VPN client setup, you will get something like this https://www.howtogeek.com/135036/how-to-connect-to-a-vpn-on-android/   you will ( probably ) get instructions  on how to setup your phone       
  4. I am with LeonG on this one   When I was last in the UK, I ended up buy my mother a new mobile phone.   yeah, she is old and does not really understand how to use a modern phone, and because she does not use it much she never gets to remember how to use it. Earlier this year I was trying to ring her up on the landline, but because she had forgotten to hang up the last call, I got a continues "the line is busy" call tone and of course the mobile was switched off. That's quite worrying for me that I cannot contact her. I have installed a webcam in the kitchen on an "old" mobile phone ( with the app "Alfied" https://alfred.camera/  total free !) so I can see what's going on there, witch helps with the worrying.   Anyways, I ended up buying her a Doro 6520 which has as features   Big buttons, so easy to dial for people with poor eyesight Big screen, easy to read Very loud call tone ( the loudest you can buy ). One touch button on the back, which can be programmed to call up to five number in sequence, if the others do not pick up the call, ie first call my bother ( closest), if no answer my sister, etc etc - she can maybe use this if she falls over and needs help. Not too many gismos to get confused over. 35 pounds in the UK, include 10 pounds of talk time.   I course I realize, that as she does not use it much, she will never really understand how to use it, but it makes me feel more happy that I tried to find here a simple phone for her.

    Here is a list of the non approved ( banned) kodi addons, which can stream ilegal content http://kodi.wiki/view/Official:Forum_rules/Banned_add-ons   provided by Kodi, kodi has nothing to do with the illegal addons    The authorities have shut down several of them already, but each time one is shut down another 3 appear, when  exodus was shut down ( just not updated),  Covenant was born, the storey goes on, looks like Covenant is going down as well, but there are lots of alternatives, see the list The  authorities have never prosecuted an end user, only the suppliers of the addon or asked them to shutdown

Beware if grips you to the sofa watch it.
  12. TV via the Internet as an alternative to satellite

    Agreed in general As some add-ons become popular, they sometimes start to slow down, also it depends where the target audience is for the add-on is, so you will notice add-ons that are targeted for Germany, may slow down during prim German TV times, eg 6 to 10pm  most days.     Try installing several addon-ons that do the same thing eg for movies, there at least 100 addons available, install several of them to your kodi device and swap between them until you get a stable feed. yes 16 is enough, but 16DSL is know to be very slow during prim German viewing times. 16 is the max, and you can often get only 4 !, you can test your internet speed from several speed checker sites.   also use a VPN while accessing kodi, VPNs can be slow at times aswell

  14. Extortionate German mobile bills

    You can port your number to your new company, as I did sure Voda phone will charge you 25 admin fee, but my new company gave me 25 euro to cover this .. so moving mobile phone company does not mean a new number.   Sadly, customer loyalty is rewarded by people getting ripped off   
  15. Extortionate German mobile bills

    try looking at  https://www.billiger-telefonieren.de/   select Handytarife then  vergleichen   Its interesting the the most expensive contract you can get is the " Telekom Mobilfunk Magenta Mobil L",  for 48,42 a month that everything, except roaming calls and out side Europe calls.
