 +**I want UK/USA streaming websites**
 +\\
 +Providing you're not in a restricted location/​country,​ and/or your Internet provider is not on our 'Known Problematic ISP' list, SmartStream is probably the best option. ​ Although you can also use our UK and USA VPN options for such sites.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**In a restricted country?**
 +\\
 +You will probably want to use the VPN, as this features additional encryption to keep your internet traffic hidden. ​ SmartStream may work from some such locations, please check the 'Known Problematic ISP/Country List' for further details.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**Using a hotel/​public wifi internet connection?​**
 +\\
 +Use the VPN, such internet connections are generally filtered and so are not compatible with SmartStream DNS.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**I want non-UK/​non-USA streaming websites**
 +\\
 +Use the VPN for the country you wish to appear to be in, for example Italy for Italian sites, Germany for German sites and so on.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**I want additional encryption/​security**
 +\\
 +Use the VPN.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**I want to setup your service on TV/TV device**
 +\\
 +Use SmartStream.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**I want to access non-streaming sites**
 +\\
 +Use the VPN
 +\\
 +\\
 +**Can I use both services? SmartStream at home, the VPN when travelling?​**
 +\\
 +Absolutely, not a problem. ​ You're free to change between the VPN/​SmartStream as required, when the VPN is on it takes priority when turned off SmartStream DNS will return if configured.
 +\\
 +\\
 +**How many devices can I setup?**
 +\\
 +When using the VPN the limit is 2 concurrently connected devices, you can configure more but only 2 can have it switched on at once.  When using SmartStream the limit is 1 broadband connection at a time, you can use unlimited devices on this 1 broadband connection.
