The Amazon Fire TV Stick, Firestick, and Fire Cube are a simple and cost-effective way to turn any TV with an HDMI port into an Internet-connected streaming device with access to tens of thousands of movies, TV shows, and other content. Unfortunately, much of that streaming media content is geo-locked, meaning it can only be accessed from specific countries. That’s where a Firestick Virtual Private Network (VPN) comes in. By encrypting all of your internet traffic and routing it through an intermediary server in a location of your choosing, you can “spoof” your location to make it appear to the content provider as though you are located in another country or region. This makes it possible to unblock restricted content on streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, HBO, and many more. Furthermore, users who run Kodi on their Amazon Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks can hide the contents and destination of their internet traffic from snooping internet service providers.
