SECURE VPN does not work with a streaming service across borders

I live in Alberta Canada and have a vacation home in Idaho. When in the US, I have tried turning on the Secure VPN with a location of Canada in order to use a streaming service such as my Bell Fibe to be able to stream broadcast Canadian content like news or TV series or sports events. Any service I try detects that I am in the US and will not stream the content when I select content to play. Am I configuring it correctly? Virtual Location is set as Canada. There are no protected networks configured and only one protected device so far. Turn On VPN is set for "When I turn it on"

Or is Secure VPN not reporting a Canadian IP address? How do I tell?

I can't currently share a screen shot of the issue as I am not in the US at the moment, but I will probably be there in a week or so. Basically, when I connect to the streaming services such as Bell Fibe and select a broadcast show such as a Canadian sports event or TV series and hit the play button I get a message that the content is not available outside Canada.
