This tutorial will show you how to setup ExpressVPN for your Streaming TV Box on Android.
Note: As there are numerous variants of Streaming TV boxes on Android, we cannot guarantee that ExpressVPN will work on every single of them. In our tests, we were able to successfully run ExpressVPN on an Unblock Tech UBox Gen 2 running Android 4.4.2. ExpressVPN currently does not run on Android TV.
