What You’ll Need
To install the VPN, you’ll need:
- A working account with a VPN provider. Make sure you’ve confirmed the account; check your email and click the confirmation link before you proceed with the steps in this guide.
- A smart TV. If it supports VPNs — and most Android sets do — then you can skip to Method 1 below.
If your smart TV doesn’t natively support VPNs (and most don’t), you will also need:
- A PC with Wi-Fi or ethernet, or a or Mac ethernet (Method 2), or
- A router capable of creating a VPN connection (Method 3).
Remember: you may need to check the connectivity options on your TV and your devices. For example, some TVs can only be Wi-Fi-enabled with an adapter that’s purchased separately, and some Macs will need an adapter for ethernet.
