Surfshark VPN vs. free VPNs
Why choose Surfshark when there are plenty of free VPNs on the market? There are multiple reasons why you should avoid free VPNs on Android TV or any other platform. Here are just a few of them:
Surfshark has thousands of fast servers for you to choose from. Free VPNs have fewer servers, which leads to overcrowding and slow speeds.
Free VPN providers may limit your data. Surfshark would never do that to you. Unlimited data and simultaneous connections are included in all Surfshark plans.
Maintaining your security costs a lot of money and resources. Premium VPNs are happy to invest as much as needed, while free VPNs can’t afford to.
Surfshark has a strict no-logs policy that an independent auditor has confirmed. Free VPNs tend to keep logs of your activity, as some providers may earn money by selling your data to third parties.
Premium VPNs invest a lot into additional security or comfort features such as kill switches, ad blockers, split-tunneling tools, and more. All of which you won’t find with most free VPNs.
Surfshark chooses to use only the best protocols available. Free VPN service providers often choose outdated, slower, and less secure protocols.
Will a VPN work on my Android TV?
Yes. Surfshark VPN is guaranteed to work with any up-to-date Android operating system. But if your Android version is older than Android 5 (Lollipop), you may not even see the Surfshark app on the Google Play Store.
Is there anything you can do in this case? Yes, you can sideload the app (refer to the “How to set up an Android TV VPN” section above).
Do I need an Android TV VPN?
There are a few reasons why you might need an Android TV VPN.
Streaming video content uses a lot of internet bandwidth. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) sees your traffic and may slow your connection. A VPN shields your data from your ISP, allowing you to watch what you want without slowing down your streaming speeds.
Furthermore, streaming devices can be hacked. But when a VPN shields your connection, this becomes much harder.
Is a VPN for Android TV legal?
Yes, there’s nothing illegal about using a VPN on Android platforms. Some countries like Russia or China restrict or heavily regulate VPN use, but it’s not an issue in most of the world.
However, it’s safe to say that doing anything against the law with a VPN is still illegal.
Disclaimer: We prohibit using Surfshark services for any unlawful purposes as it is against our Terms of Service. Please be sure to act in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations of other service providers.
Does Netflix work with a VPN for Android TV?
Yes, Netflix works on Android TV with an active VPN connection. Using a VPN may help you overcome ISP throttling and solve any buffering issues. Simply download the APK for the Surfshark Android TV VPN and try it yourself.
How do I check if my VPN is on Android TV?
- Go to the VPN app and turn it on. Once connected, you should see a new IP address that the VPN has provided you with.
- Find out your IP:
- Once you’re on the Android TV dashboard, go to Settings (press on the “cog” icon) and select “Network and Internet”;
- Then, select the network you’re connected to, and a drop-down menu will appear with your IP address.
- Check if the IP addresses match. If your VPN shows you the same IP address as the one in the “Network and Internet” settings, it means that your VPN is working.
