Can I have two Apple IDs for different countries?
Yes, you can. Technically, if you log out from your current account, you can set up a new Apple ID account on the same device. The content won't be shared between two Apple IDs unless you set up a family access. Bear in mind that you have to be physically in a country to use their store. Even if your account was set up for, say, Sweden, you wouldn't be able to download content from Swedish AppStore if you're currently in the US.
Will Netflix work on my Apple TV with a VPN?
The short answer is yes. However, not every VPN can unblock Netflix. You need to choose a high-quality provider that keeps up with Netflix's war with VPNs.
Can I use a free VPN for Apple TV?
We don't recommend settling for a free VPN for Apple TV. For starters, they don't allow you to set up your VPN on a router. They can't provide the speed you need to stream regular HD; forget about 4K. There is a high risk of being cut off in the middle of the show due to bandwidth limitations. Besides, free providers still need to make money somehow, so there is a great chance that they'd be selling you data or harass you with ads.
Does 4K stream without buffering on an Apple TV with a VPN?
Yes, all the recommended VPN providers have the capacity to stream your favorite shows in 4K without buffering. However, if you're connecting to a remote server, your speed might slow down, which will result in buffering. The download bandwidth's requirement to stream in 4K UHD is 25 Mbps.
What is Smart DNS, and how to set it up on your Apple TV?
Smart DNS is a technical solution that allows you to bypass geographical restrictions and access blocked websites. To use it, you need to subscribe to a VPN provider that offers this feature and find out your Smart DNS addresses. After that, follow this path:
Go to Settings on your Apple TV - Network (bottom of the page) - press the WI-FI button - select the network you're connected to - press "Configure DNS" and go for manual configuration - Enter one of the DNS addresses provided by your VPN - press "Done" - Restart your Apple TV. That's it!
The advantages of using a VPN for Apple TV?
VPN for Apple TV provides increased privacy and security and gives you more freedom to connect to thousands of servers worldwide to get access to the otherwise unreachable content.
Can I unblock BBC iPlayer with an Apple TV VPN?
Yes, you can with those providers listed in this article. BBC iPlayer constantly blacklists a lot of IP-addresses, so the smaller the provider's server network is, the higher the chance that you won't be able to bypass the service's restrictions.
Will a VPN protect me when using Kodi on Apple TV?
Yes, it can. A decent VPN saves you from common hacker attacks while utilizing Kodi and hides your online activity from your ISP, preventing bandwidth throttling.
Will VPN slow down my connection speed on Apple TV?
You should expect a slight speed loss with VPN since it takes up a bit of bandwidth to transfer your requests through the VPN's server. That being said, with good VPNs, that loss will be insignificant, and you'd still be able to stream even in 4K. Another thing to consider is how remote the server is. If you're trying to reach a very distant country's content, your traffic can get slower regardless of the provider.
Can I use Airplay with a VPN on my Apple TV?
With the majority of VPN providers, you can. If, for some reason, Airplay doesn't seem to work, try going through your VPN's settings to see if the local networking option is on. If both devices are using the same WI-FI, there shouldn't be a problem. Also, some of the top VPNs offer a Split Tunneling feature that allows you to exclude specific devices from the protected tunnel to use the local network even if your VPN is set on the router.
