ExpressVPN arrives on Apple TV & here’s how to install it
Apple’s tvOS 17 lets you install a VPN application natively on an Apple TV box. Here’s everything you need to know about this and a quick guide to the installation process
Apart from ExpressVPN, many service providers like VPNify, X-VPN, IPVanish, PureVPN, hide.me, LeapVPN, US VPN, Anycast, and more are already available on tvOS.
Before you shrug the news off, let us remind you that apart from accessing geo-locked content, a VPN can be beneficial in allowing you to access international content from your favorite streaming service.
This means you can access Netflix or Disney+ movies, shows, or documentaries from the US or UK while sitting in Australia. With the help of a VPN, you can access this content and hide your browsing habits from your ISP.
Remember that your ISP can track your browsing details and may share this personal data with advertisers and government agencies.
ExpressVPN lets you switch anywhere between its servers located in 105 countries across the globe. So, if you have an ExpressVPN subscription, you can change your location virtually between any of these countries on your Apple TV and browse the regional content easily.
