Firestick....with vpn

Post by parrot » January 7, 2019, 3:18 pm

Last year I was trying to figure out a way to watch some US channels on my TV through my VPN. As best I could determine, that wasn't possible last year unless you had a VPN-enabled router. I recently found out that you can download certain VPNs to an Amazon firestick (strongvpn is one) and watch the US version of netflix, pbs, and a variety of other free US channels/shows. I've tested it out to see if there are any delays/slowdowns.....there aren't any, using my TOT fiber package.
Progress!
