Virtual Private Networks (VPN) are quickly becoming essential for internet users who want to get online privately and without annoying restrictions.
They can make you secure and safer as well as get rid of annoying regional content restrictions.
VPN on Roku
There is no native VPN support on the Roku and it doesn’t support VPN apps but thankfully that doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy all the benefits of VPN on your favourite streaming device. Read-on to find out how…
Why Use a VPN on Roku?
A reputable VPN works by sending all of your internet activity through an encrypted tunnel (a server) which makes your online activity anonymous from your internet provider.
For most Roku users, the key attraction of a VPN is to bypass geographical restrictions - those errors on services such as iPlayer that say ‘Content unavailable in your location’. It can also be used to switch location on services such as Netflix so that you can access the full range of content and not need to put up with location-based price discrimination, where you pay the same amount as subscribers in other countries but only have access to a fraction of the content.
How to Access VPN on Roku
The best solution to access VPN on Roku is Pyramid.
Pyramid is a WiFi box, which is smaller and lighter than a smartphone, and pairs with your existing broadband or any internet provider.
It’s designed to deliver all the benefits of a VPN but with no need to install software or worry about whether it works on your device.
That means you can go from plugging it in to enjoying VPN on all devices so not limited to a Roku but also on Smart TV, consoles or any other device in less than 5 minutes.
There’s also a simple-to-use app that allows you to switch location in seconds so that you can remove location restrictions and unlock content that is not typically available in your location.
