The Benefits Of Using NordVPN On Your TV

NordVPN allows you to enhance the streaming experience on your Android TV in a number of ways: 

  • Smart TV security – Every device with an operating system (everything “smart”) becomes vulnerable to cyber threats the moment it connects to the Internet, including your computer, smartphone, tablet, and all other gadgets with Internet connectivity. NordVPN for Android TV utilizes OpenVPN connection protocol to encrypt your online traffic and keep it safe and secure. OpenVPN is by far the best and most secure of all connection protocols. It features AES-256 encryption, which is also used by the military and financial institutions (banks, for example). In other words, neither your ISP nor other online entities will be able to monitor your online activities or collect data regarding your online habits. 
  • Streaming freedom – VPNs unlock the full potential of pre-installed video apps that come with your Android TV box. Using a VPN also removes any geographic limitations when it comes to the selection of online content. Bottom line, with NordVPN, your TV will turn into an entertainment hub that will allow you to enjoy complete streaming freedom. 
  • No bandwidth throttling – ISPs sometimes differentiate traffic in order to slow down the speeds for specific online activities. Streaming is often at the very top of that list, which results in frustrating buffering issues. Using NordVPN for your smart TV will remove this problem once and for all.
