Default Changes Visible IP

I haven't yet come across a freeware IP changing software.

By this I mean one that changes your 'visible' IP so that I could for example change my IP to one from the UK when I come across a video online that is restricted to the UK.

Many a time I come across the 'this video is not available in your region' message.

Rikishi - I think you'd need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service with servers in the UK (or whatever country of interest) to do that.

I used to use a paid one because the service was so important to me. I know free options exist but I haven't tried them. However, I've heard that quality and reliability have improved in the last few years.

Maybe someone who does have experience of free VPNs and can comment here?

One free UK / US based option is HideIP VPN:
