Why you need a VPN for Android TV

Android TV is a great way to watch a variety of content on any TV in your home. Simply plug in your Android TV box and away you go. However, only certain TV shows, movies, and sporting events are available for you to stream, and that library of content varies based on where you live. For instance, say you live in the US: you’ll see totally different content than you would if you lived in the UK. And hey, maybe you’d like to watch a UK show from time-to-time, even if you’re actually living in Mississippi. 

The question, then, is how do you watch whatever Android TV content you like, when you want it — regardless of where in the world you live?

That’s where an Android TV VPN comes in.

A VPN routes your internet traffic through its secure VPN servers. There, the traffic is encrypted which makes your data secure and private. With a VPN like Hotspot Shield, you can also select between 3,200 servers in 80+ countries around the world. If you pick a server located in the United Kingdom, for example, Hotspot Shield will give you a UK IP address. This makes it appear as if you’re located in the UK, even if you’re actually in, say, India — and you’ll now find an entirely new library of Android TV content for you to browse.

How to stop your ISP from throttling Android TV

Internet Service Providers have been known to throttle (or slow down) connections to certain streaming services. If you notice that your Android TV streaming seems slower than expected, it may be because you’re dealing with throttling. 

So how do you avoid Android TV throttling and stream with blazing-fast speed? Again, you need an Android TV VPN. Hotspot Shield VPN encrypts your data, making it impossible for your ISP to know what you’re streaming. And if it doesn’t know you’re streaming on your Android TV box, it can’t throttle your content. All you have to do is make sure you’re connected to the Hotspot Shield for TV app, and it will work silently in the background to enable restriction-free streaming.
