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?
You can livestream ORF on a wide range of devices. Connect to its website with Windows or Mac; on mobile with either iOS or Android; or with a streaming device like Amazon Fire Stick, Android TV, or Apple TV. With ExpressVPN you can always stream on five devices simultaneously; or even more if you use the ExpressVPN app for routers.
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.
