Android TV: screen mirroring and casting

The best thing about using ExpressVPN with your Android TV is that you don’t need another device at all. Just download the ExpressVPN app directly onto your Android TV from the Google Play Store and start streaming securely straight away.

But what if you’re already using another device, and you want to quickly see your work blown up on a bigger screen? Or maybe you’re watching video on your phone at someone’s house, and you want to share it with everyone there? Android TV devices are capable of receiving and displaying video sent from computers and phones, even if ExpressVPN isn’t installed on the Android TV.

Why you need an Android TV VPN

Bypass throttling

Have you noticed slow speeds on YouTube videos or Netflix shows taking forever to load? This might indicate that your internet service provider (ISP) is intentionally slowing or “throttling” your internet connection.

Activities like streaming demand high bandwidth. As a result, ISPs might inspect your data and restrict download speeds if they detect you’re streaming. This results in slower streaming speeds for you, ruining your Friday night.

You can avoid limits on your bandwidth by using ExpressVPN to mask your internet activities. With ExpressVPN activated on your Android TV device, your ISP won’t be able to inspect the data packets, so it won’t be able to throttle that traffic based on what service you’re using.

Keep your device (and data) safe

Smart TVs, such as Android TV boxes, require access to the internet. This can expose any sensitive data contained on your Android TV device, such as your personal information, to snoops and other third parties. ExpressVPN helps add an extra layer of security, protecting your privacy while you stream shows, sports, and more on Android TV.

Unblock restricted apps and websites

Depending on which part of the world you’re in, you might be unable to access censored websites and apps on your Android TV box. Everyone should have access to the full internet, no matter where you live. ExpressVPN acts as a website unblocker by giving you a new IP address, so you can appear to be in a different country.
