TV and internet options

Roku and VPNs work perfectly in Mexico if they are set up properly. I have been living full time in Mexico for 6 years. Using a router with the VPN software loaded into the unit is simple to set up. Literally plug and play. I used this system for 2 years with Cablemas in Playa Del Carmen, 3 years with TelMex in Cancun and now almost a year in Merida with IZZI.

You're right, the router with the VPN plugs into the Mexican modem/router. It then connects to your televisions wired or wirelessly. I use a single router in our house with powerline adaptors in the living room and bedroom that carries the signal "wired" through the electrical wiring in the house. Perfect signal even in a 100 year old colonial with 24" walls. The house is 120 feet front to back with televisions at either end. You can live without the powerline adaptors if your Mexican modem is near your television. However the powerline adaptors are a small unit that plug into an outlet in your chosen room and serve as a wireless hotspot in that room not just a wired connection to the television.

With that set up one can subscribe to any number of streaming services from the US or Canada.
