    The flip side is that many services based outside(Sky Sports, Eurovision, Fox Central America) the US don't allow streaming to US IP addresses, Nord has servers in over 120 countries to get around those restrictions. It's really the only good way to get race coverage of anything other than Nascar.

    ProtonVPN/ProtonMail is also a very good option for VPN and encrypted email services, definitely recommend checking out (especially for email if not a fan of big (evil) G mining your comms - they have one of the worst/most insidious privacy policies I've seen to date.

    I've yet to run into any issues (that I know about) with Gmail being invasive. I suppose if you forward mail from a ProtonMail account to Gmail it completely defeats the purpose? Glad to see more people with experience with these programs. Thank you.
