This tutorial will show you how to set up MediaStreamer on your Apple TV (1st, 2nd, 3rd gen).

MediaStreamer is a DNS service designed to improve your streaming experience. Since Apple TV does not natively support VPN, you can use MediaStreamer as an alternative for streaming.

Note: MediaStreamer is not a VPN and does not offer the privacy and security benefits of a VPN. MediaStreamer does not have a graphical user interface. You cannot change locations on MediaStreamer.

Note: The video below shows a 4th-generation Apple TV, so the interface appears different from that of older models.

1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website
2. Get your MediaStreamer server IP address
3. Configure the Location settings on your Apple TV
4. Configure the DNS servers on your Apple TV


1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website

Go to the ExpressVPN DNS settings page. If prompted, enter your ExpressVPN credentials and click Sign In.

Enter your account credentials, then click "Sign In."

Enter the verification code sent to your email.

Under IP address registration, click Register my IP address. If it already reads “registered” next to your IP address, there is no need to select this option again.

Next to "My IP address," click "Register my IP address."

Toggle Automatically register my IP address on. This is recommended as it automatically tracks changes to your IP address.

Toggle "Automatically register my IP address" on.

Once you have enabled Automatically register my IP address, be sure to keep your registered IP address updated by periodically signing in to your account on the ExpressVPN website. Alternatively, you can use the ExpressVPN app (on any device) while connected to the same network as your Apple TV. These actions grant the devices on your network continued access to MediaStreamer.

Enter your account credentials, then click "Sign In."
