As long as you are a paid subscriber to the streaming platform you want to watch movies on, it is completely legal to use a VPN to access those movies. Using a VPN is a cybersecurity tool that protects your browsing activity from being monitored by your ISP or the websites that you visit.
How to stream movies with Proton VPN
Why use Proton VPN for streaming movies?
Using Proton VPN’s high-speed servers to stream movies on-demand means you get to watch your favorite films without annoying lags or buffering. Proton VPN also adds an extra level of security to your streaming traffic by hiding your IP address and bypassing the censorship and restrictions that are often placed on film-streaming sites.
Access from anywhere
We have Plus streaming servers in over 60 countries, so you can stream movies from services such as Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video. By connecting to a server in another country, you can bypass geo-restrictions and watch the movies that are only available in that region.
Our fast and reliable Plus VPN servers support connection speeds of up to 10 Gbps, meaning you can watch your favorite movies online without interruptions caused by buffering or drops in your VPN connection.
We use only the strongest encryption ciphers and most secure VPN protocols, keeping your streaming activity and real location private. You can also use advanced features, such as our kill switch and always-on VPN to ensure you never inadvertently reveal your true IP address.
Fast VPN for streaming movies
Using our VPN Accelerator feature can improve your VPN speeds by more than 400%, making long buffering times a thing of the past, especially if you have an unstable internet connection or are connected to a server on the other side of the globe.
With a Plus plan you can connect up to 10 devices to the VPN at once, so you can stream movies safely from anywhere. You can also share your connections with those in your household, so everyone can watch films online on their own devices.
Fast VPN protocols
WireGuard is a lightweight VPN protocol that uses the state-of-the-art ChaCha20 encryption cipher to deliver high-speed, stable connections and uses less battery power than other protocols, meaning you can stream movies in HD without buffering or losing power.
Frequently Asked Questions
To stream Netflix (or any other streaming service) as if you were located in another country, you simply need to connect to a VPN server that is located in that country. For example, if you are based in the US and want to watch UK Netflix, you should connect to one of our servers in the UK. Proton VPN has servers in over 60 countries, so you can stream movies from anywhere.
Streaming can take up a lot of data, so some internet providers will intentionally slow down (or throttle) your connection when they see that you are watching movies online. When you use Proton VPN, that information is hidden from your internet provider, so they cannot target and slow down your connection.
You can also use Proton VPN to stream movies as though you were in a different location, by connecting to one of our Plus servers in the country of your choice. This allows you to access movies that are only available in that country.
