Why should I use a VPN for TVNOW?
In order to reduce traffic, some internet service providers (ISPs) throttle bandwidth when you’re streaming, which can result in lots of buffering and a frustrating viewing experience. The same can happen on public Wi-Fi networks, which are also notoriously unsecure. ExpressVPN encrypts your traffic in a secure tunnel so your ISP can’t see your activity and therefore won’t throttle your bandwidth, while preventing anyone else from intercepting your online activity.
Can I watch TVNOW abroad?
It is possible to stream a limited number of shows on TVNOW outside of Germany.
Will using a VPN affect the video quality?
Usually, no. Bad video quality often comes from a slow internet connection, which can have various causes. While a VPN could slow down your connection, ExpressVPN is dedicated to providing the fastest VPN service possible, so it’s likely you won’t notice a difference.
Under certain circumstances, a VPN may even help you overcome the bandwidth throttling by your ISP, thus making your connection faster.
What else can I do with ExpressVPN?
