Why livestream ORF with a VPN?
ORF, short for Österreichischer Rundfunk (English: Austrian Broadcasting Corporation), is Austria’s largest media provider. It’s become famous outside of Austria, and especially in neighboring Germany, for its wide selection of high-quality German-language TV shows, news, movies, historical programs, and sports events like Formula 1 and the EUFA Euro Cup. Its free online streaming service is accessible on most platforms, including desktop, mobile, smart TVs, and gaming consoles.
ExpressVPN is fully compatible with ORF, so you can easily watch its uniquely Austrian programming at ultra-fast speeds while maintaining your online security.

FAQ: VPN for ORF
Is ORF free?
Yes, ORF offers free online streaming services with hundreds of hours of German-language Austrian content, ranging from entertainment to education.
Why should I use a VPN for ORF?
Streaming services like ORF may be blocked in some locations, such as in schools or offices where watching TV could be seen as a distraction. Or, it might be intentionally slowed down by public Wi-Fi networks trying to preserve bandwidth. But ExpressVPN encrypts all your internet activity, meaning your traffic can’t be blocked or slowed down based on what you’re watching. So when you stream ORF with ExpressVPN, you will enjoy secure, throttle-free access to HD-quality video, no matter where you choose to watch.
Can I watch ORF abroad?
Certain ORF programming may be available on demand outside of Austria.
What devices can I watch ORF on?
ORF is available on a wide range of devices, including:
Smartphones and tablets, including iOS and Android
Computers, including Mac, Windows, and Linux
Smart TVs and TV box systems, including Apple TV, Android TV, and Fire TV Stick
ExpressVPN has easy-to-use apps for many of these devices and covers five devices simultaneously. But even if your device cannot install ExpressVPN directly, you can still enjoy full VPN benefits by connecting it to a router running ExpressVPN.

Will using a VPN affect the video quality?
Usually, no. All VPNs have the potential to slow down your connection, but as ExpressVPN is extremely fast, most users do not encounter any buffering issues.
In some cases, using a VPN to watch ORF can actually improve your video quality, especially if your ISP has been throttling bandwidth on streaming services.

Have been using this service for two years now... it's infallible. Works with every app and streaming service. Uptime is good, no stuttering or delay on streams.
This is the first VPN service that doesn't slow down or buffer my streaming services while I'm at home. I appreciate that and thank you all for doing it right!
