With ProtonVPN, you can stream and watch video content on any Android TV by installing the app directly on your TV set.
The app allows you to watch content from more than 50 countries, if you have a paid plan. Users with free accounts can select from up to 3 countries.
To stream content from media platforms including Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, you need a ProtonVPN Plus or Visionary plan and an account with the service you would like to use. If you are new to using a VPN to access video content, read our guide on streaming.
A paid account also allows you to install ProtonVPN on multiple devices to enjoy your favorite content wherever you are.
Android TV is built into some TVs and is used by a wide selection of streaming sticks and boxes that can plug into any TV with a spare HDMI port. If you don’t have an Android TV, you can find some examples in this article.
The ProtonVPN app for Android TV works as described in this article on the Chromecast with Google TV stick, and on any TVs that use the (Android-based) Google TV interface. Users of Chromecast-only devices (Chromecast 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, Ultra, and 3rd Gen) will instead need a VPN router to use their device with our VPN service. Our Android TV app can also be sideloaded onto an Amazon Fire TV device (“firestick”).
How to set up ProtonVPN on Android TV
To install ProtonVPN on your Android TV, follow these steps:
1. Download the application from your TV’s app store. Alternatively, you can install the app using your desktop browser from our regular Play Store page. Choose your Android TV as the device to install to automatically start the installation on your TV.
2. Follow the instructions on your TV screen:
When you open the app for the first time, a code will be displayed.
Sign in to your ProtonVPN on your smartphone or computer, access account.protonvpn.com/tv, and enter the code displayed on your TV. Verify the code and you can start using Android TV ProtonVPN to watch your favorite content.
Use your remote to navigate between countries and connect to a server. ProtonVPN also allows you to select your favorite country, which will always show up in the Recent section at the top of the list.
