Why you need a VPN for FireStick

Your Amazon Fire TV Stick is an awesome way to watch shows like Tom Clancey’s Jack Ryan and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But depending on where you live, shows like this might not be available in your region. Also, release dates of Amazon original movies may differ, so to ensure you never have to wait to watch the best Amazon Prime shows, you’ll need a VPN for FireStick to spoof your location and provide restriction-free access.

A VPN routes your internet traffic through its secure VPN servers. At which point the traffic is encrypted, which makes your internet activities private and secure. Moreover, with a VPN like Hotspot Shield, you can select one of its 3,200+ VPN servers in 80+ countries around the world. If you pick a foreign server, your device will be granted a foreign IP address and any site you visit will think you’re located in that country, even though you’re not.

Say you live in the UK and want to watch US Amazon Prime shows, all you have to do is connect to a USA VPN server location. Hotspot Shield will give you a US IP address and, voila, Amazon will think you’re located in America and show you the content for that region.

How to stop your ISP from throttling Fire TV

Despite paying good money for your internet service, your Internet Service Provider may intentionally throttle (or slow down) your connection when accessing certain streaming sites. Why, you ask? When Net Neutrality regulation got stripped in 2018, it left ISPs with the legal ability to deprioritize certain sites. Given many ISPs have their own TV services, they typically don’t want you to stream on sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video when you could pay for that content with them.

So how do you avoid throttling? When you use Hotspot Shield VPN, your internet activities are encrypted and invisible to your ISP. If your ISP doesn’t know that you’re trying to watch Good Omens on your Fire TV Stick, then it can’t throttle your connection.
