Streaming guide for new ProtonVPN users

Depending on which country you are in, your selection of content on streaming services can be severely limited. ProtonVPN lets travelers access geo-blocked content that is available back in their home country.

Which server you need to connect to in which country will depend on the streaming service you are trying to watch or listen to.

Fortunately, we have created guides to help you unblock all the major streaming platforms using ProtonVPN:

FAQ: ProtonVPN streaming

Q: Which plan lets me use streaming services with ProtonVPN? 

A: Streaming is reserved for Plus and Visionary users. If you are a ProtonVPN user on a Free or Basic plan, you will need to upgrade your subscription to be able to stream videos.

Upgrade to a ProtonVPN Plus plan today.

Or, if you don’t have a subscription yet, sign up for ProtonVPN Plus.

Q: Can I stream videos on my mobile device while using ProtonVPN?

A: Yes, you can access and watch videos on most popular streaming platforms while using ProtonVPN on your Android or iOS device. However, sometimes there are additional limitations (generally, to access a streaming platform on iOS, you must have that platform’s iOS app, which is only available in certain country versions of the App Store).

Check the guides above to see which streaming specific services work with mobile apps.

Q: Can I stream videos and movies on my TV with ProtonVPN? 

With the ProtonVPN app for Android TV (currently in beta testing), you can stream and watch video content on any Android TV by installing the app directly on your TV set.

Q: Which Plus plan servers do I need to connect to in order to stream movies or TV shows?

A: This depends on which streaming service you are trying to use. We often support streaming services in multiple countries. For example, we support the local versions of Netflix from the following countries: United States, United Kingdom, India, Italy, Australia, Germany, Canada, Japan, France.

All you need to do is connect to a Plus plan server in one of those countries.

Each guide clearly explains which countries that streaming service is available in.

Q: Can I stream videos while connected to a Secure Core server?

A: We do not recommend this. The Secure Core servers in your final destination country do not always support streaming. Also, since Secure Core’s purpose is to add an additional layer of security against network attacks, it is not optimized for streaming content, which can lead to poorer video quality.
