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.

Enjoy streaming freedom

VPN lets you seize the full potential of video apps that come pre-installed with the Android TV box. Sometimes, living in a specific part of the world might mean lesser or wider selection of online content. But not with VPN. Once you get NordVPN on your TV, you can turn it into your own entertainment hub and enjoy streaming freedom.

NordVPN offers over 5200 servers in 59 countries

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.
