Apple TV is a great device for those who wish to stream media content from services like Netflix, Pandora, iTunes, and more. Currently, Apple does not offer a method of VPN configuration on the device itself, nor are we able to offer a dedicated app. Click here to find out why. However, there are several options you can choose from to use your VyprVPN connection with Apple TV!
You might ask, "Why would I want to use VyprVPN for my Apple TV?" That's a great question! A lot of online streaming content is geo-blocked to certain countries. This can make it a challenge to watch the programs you want to watch. In most cases, by using VyprVPN, you can more easily unlock access to geo-blocked content!
Here are the ways you can set up VyprVPN to work with your Apple TV:
Option #1: Setup VyprVPN in your DD-WRT or Tomato router
This option will allow you to connect all devices in your home to VyprVPN by setting up a VyprVPN connection in your router. Once configured, all devices connected to the router will access the Internet through the router's VyprVPN connection.
- For DD-WRT, we recommend following our OpenVPN setup for DD-WRT
- For Tomato, we also recommend following our OpenVPN setup for Tomato
If your goal is to access geo-blocked content on the Apple TV, remember that you will need to connect to a VPN server location in an area where that content isn't blocked. If you just want to encrypt your Apple TV traffic, then you can choose any location that you like!
Please note that, due to possible blocks on the provider's end, it is not possible for us to guarantee VyprVPN will work with all online streaming providers. If you are having trouble accessing geo-blocked content, please see this article for assistance.
Option #2: Share your internet connection with the Apple TV
Another option is to share your Mac or PC's internet connection with the Apple TV. This effectively creates a new wireless network from the VyprVPN connection on your Mac or PC that the Apple TV can connect to.
