Using a VPN service lets you change the apparent location of your smart TV. This makes your apps work as intended no matter where you are in the world. A VPN app for smart TVs can also defeat censorship, encrypt your traffic, and help you avoid bandwidth throttling by your ISP.

Although there are plenty of free VPNs and “free proxies” out there, it’s worth considering how these providers can afford to offer their service at no charge. It pays to remember the mantra: “If you aren’t paying for the product, you are the product.”
In addition to privacy concerns around your personal data, most free VPNs have limited networks, so you may not find a server for the location you need. They are also known to cap data and limit speeds, leading to a less-than-ideal online experience.

Our global network of 10-Gbps servers means you’ll experience unlimited bandwidth and blazing-fast speeds.

The list of smart TV devices is too large to guarantee that all of them will be able to use ExpressVPN directly. Most Android TV devices are able to run ExpressVPN’s VPN app for Android with no issues. Samsung Smart TVs cannot run VPN software, but they can use ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer service. For specific advice, contact Support or consult our guide to popular devices.
Regardless of the above, however, any device with an internet connection can connect to ExpressVPN through a VPN-enabled Wi-Fi router.
No. MediaStreamer will allow your device to access content that would otherwise be blocked, but it does so without the privacy benefits of tunneling and encryption. To use a smart TV with all the protection of a VPN, connect it to a VPN-enabled router using the ExpressVPN app for routers.

Yes! You can directly install a VPN app on compatible smart TVs. Android TVs in particular can use the ExpressVPN app for Android.
For smart TVs that cannot install the ExpressVPN app directly, you can still use ExpressVPN by connecting your smart TV to a VPN-enabled router or using our MediaStreamer DNS service, which can help your device mask its location but does not provide the same privacy protection as a VPN.
If your smart TV is running on the Amazon Fire TV or Android TV platforms, or if you are using a Roku or Apple TV, you can easily download the ExpressVPN app onto your device.
If you’re using a smart TV that isn’t compatible with a VPN app, such as a Samsung or LG smart TV, you can use our MediaStreamer service. MediaStreamer will allow your device to access content that would otherwise be blocked and also masks your location, but does not provide the full privacy benefits of a VPN.

I have used numerous VPN’s and did not like that they slowed my streaming down or crashed while I was in the middle of a Amazon purchase. Express is the best and I use it on my Iphone Ipad PC and Fire TV all for one low price.
Apart from the obvious uses like being able to discreetly surf without trading your digital freedom, for me, an English ex pat in the USA this vpn service allows me to watch U.K. tv, the only thing I really miss from home!
Most of the time I am staying outside the US, but I love watching my favorite TV series. Express VPN enables me to do it wherever I am, and I do not have to worry about 'This show is unavailable in your area' information.
