Entertainment meets privacy
Binge-watchers, hardcore TV fans and occasional streamers can all enjoy the benefits of a VPN on their Android TV. NordVPN’s server network ensures a fast and reliable VPN connection wherever you are.
The app is designed to match your Android TV perfectly. We’ve been offering a VPN for android phones for a while, but now it’s available for your TV as well. The native app interface makes everything, from setting it up to connecting to VPN, extremely easy.
Why use NordVPN on your TV
By having NordVPN on your Android TV, you can enhance your streaming experience in a number of ways.
Secure your smart TV
Since your smart TV is connected to the Internet, it becomes vulnerable to the same cyber threats as your computer, tablet, or smartphone. NordVPN for Android TV uses the OpenVPN security protocol to encrypt your online data, so your sensitive data is protected from hackers and snoopers. When you use VPN, even your Internet service provider can’t see what you’re watching and collect data on your TV viewing habits.
NordVPN offers over 5900 servers in 60 countries
Defeat bandwidth throttling
Sometimes, Internet service providers (ISPs) differentiate traffic to slow down connection speeds for specific online activities. Streaming often tops the list, resulting in video buffering. This is a real practice, and you can find out more about bandwidth throttling here. Hardly anything can be more annoying than the latest episode of your favorite show getting interrupted, right? Well, now you can prevent it from happening by using NordVPN for your smart TV.
Watch your favorite content without any limitations.
NordVPN for Android TV comes extremely user-friendly and packed with supreme features to let you enjoy your favorite shows without compromising your privacy.
- Quick connect. Our star feature makes appearance in the NordVPN app for Android TV to make connecting to VPN a breeze. Simply hit Quick Connect, and our algorithms will pick the best server for you in terms of speed, latency, and performance, and connect you instantly.
- CyberSec. The CyberSec security suite is integrated into our app for Android TV to protect your Internet-connected smart TV against malware and cyber-threats.

To continue to block ads in addition to malicious websites, download the .apk version of the app offered exclusively on our website.
