How to use a VPN to watch Netflix on an Amazon Fire TV?

Do you own an Amazon Fire TV or an Amazon Fire TV Stick, and now you would like to use a VPN on the device? How can you use a VPN to watch Netflix on an Amazon Fire device?

It is incredibly easy to use a VPN on your Amazon Fire TV. All you need is an actual Fire TV (Stick), a Netflix subscription, and then you need to purchase a subscription to a VPN provider that works well with Netflix. There are quite a lot of VPN providers to choose from, but if I were you, I would go for one of the following VPN providers.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick

ExpressVPN with Fire TV and Netflix

This is a great VPN provider for Amazon Fire TV. They have a beautiful looking application ready in the app store, meaning that you can easily download it to your Fire TV. After installing it, add your ExpressVPN username and password and connect to a server in the country you are interested in.

Visit ExpressVPN(start watching Netflix right away)

Be aware of the fact, not all ExpressVPN servers work with Netflix. That is why you might get some proxy and unblocker messages when using ExpressVPN, but still, they have servers working with Netflix in almost ten nations, so you should have no trouble getting this to work.

You can use one ExpressVPN subscription at five devices at the same time, so you can easily use this on your computer, mobile, tablet and at the Fire TV at the same time!

Before you continue, check the content in this article. Based on what I wrote there, I would clearly recommend ExpressVPN as you try to stream Netflix on your Fire TV Stick instead of the upcoming two providers.

NordVPN on FireTV with Netflix

NordVPN is another popular and famous VPN provider. They are a big sponsor of Liverpool FC in the Premier League, and they are one of the most used VPN providers on the market. They work with servers in 6-7 different nations. But, unlike ExpressVPN, they use a smart technology with Netflix. If you connect to a server that doesn’t work with Netflix, you will instead get access to American Netflix. As a result, you will never get the proxy and unblocker error message, but you will instead get access to American Netflix. That is very neat, isn’t it?

Unblock Netflix with NordVPN(you can start watching in a few minutes)

NordVPN has a 30-day money-back guarantee, and you can use one subscription at six devices at the same time. The subscription is a bit cheaper than ExpressVPN, but in general, ExpressVPN is a bit faster than NordVPN. But, for most people, this should be more than enough.

NordVPN also has an application ready in the app store on your Amazon Fire TV, meaning you can download it and run it at once!

Surfshark VPN on FireTV with Netflix

The last VPN provider I will mention in this article is Surfshark VPN. I just tested this service, and they will actually give you access to around 12 different Netflix regions. As a result, you can stream lots of content in different nations. But, they also use the technology that NordVPN does. As a result, if you connect to a server in a nation that doesn’t work with that local version of Netflix, you will get access to American Netflix instead.

Visit Surfshark VPN(and watch Netflix right away)

You will easily find the Surfshark VPN application in the Fire TV app store. They have a 30-day full refund policy, just like NordVPN and ExpressVPN, and they can be used on as many devices as you want to at the same time.

How to watch American Netflix on a Fire TV Stick abroad?

The Fire TV Stick is a very convenient tool if you want to stream content online on your TV. I have one myself, and I frequently use it. Lots of people compare the Amazon Fire TV Stick to the Google Chromecast, and the question is which is the best of them. I cannot give an answer to that, but I do like the fact that the Amazon Fire TV Stick has its own controller, giving you the TV feeling much more than you get it using your phone together with your TV as you use a Chromecast. And to be honest, it is much easier to access American Netflix on an Amazon Fire TV Stick than it is on a Google Chromecast, so you should be very happy about that.

How to watch American Netflix on Amazon Fire TV Stick

The instructions I give you here will work just as well on normal Amazon Fire TVs, meaning that they are valid for both the Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick. The way to do it is the same on both systems.

The first thing you need to stream US Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV

The first thing you need to stream US Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV abroad is a subscription to the VPN services of NordVPN. This might be the best VPN provider out there if you want to get access to other Netflix regions, meaning that they will help you access American Netflix, but also will let you stream content on Netflix in Canada, in England, in the Netherlands, in Japan, and in some more countries.

If you click the link above, you will be taken to the NordVPN website. There you can sign up for one of their packages, and you should notice that you get it extremely cheap if you sign up for one year or more. It is also nice to know that NordVPN has a 30-day full refund policy, meaning that you and your money is safe, as you can simply ask for a refund if you don’t feel satisfied with the service.

After signing up, you can give it a try on your laptop or your phone first, or go directly to your Amazon Fire TV Stick and get started there. This is what you will need to do!

Watch American Netflix on your Fire TV Stick with NordVPN

  • Open the Fire TV and search for the NordVPN application.
  • Download the application from the app store.
  • Open the application and log in with your NordVPN credentials.
  • Connect to a VPN server in the United States.
  • Go back to the main menu and open the Netflix application.
  • You can now stream American Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV Stick.

It wasn’t that hard, was it? You can later connect to servers in Canada, England and in the Netherlands to get access to those Netflix regions.

In the same way you can use NordVPN on your laptop, on your phone and on your tablet to stream Netflix. And do you know what is cool? You can use NordVPN at six different devices at the same time. So, while you stream American Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV, you can actually use NordVPN on your computer as well to secure your Internet connection and to stream content on BBC in England, while you share your credentials with a friend in China who want to bypass the great firewall of China in order to freely access and use popular social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

You get the point, don’t you?

Enjoy all the content on American Netflix on your Fire TV

What makes NordVPN the best VPN provider for Amazon Fire TV Stick and Netflix streaming?

You might wonder why I recommend NordVPN instead of all the other VPN providers on the market. Well, it is quite easy to explain. NordVPN will totally keep you safe from the proxy and unblocker error messages, as they always make sure that you use a server working with Netflix as you connect to one of their VPN servers. If you use other VPN providers, you might have to try several servers to find one that is actually working, and that is both time demanding and frustrating. But, with NordVPN there is no delay – simply connect to a server in the USA, and you can for sure stream all your favorite content on American Netflix on your Fire TV Stick at once… without any proxy and unblocker error message or other annoying stuff.

Are you happy about this, or what? I for sure am, and I almost feel like turning on my TV with my Amazon Fire TV Stick to stream some great content on American Netflix right away.

You can also use NordVPN to stream content on CBS All Access, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and similar services in the USA on your Amazon Fire TV Stick, making this the ideal VPN provider for those who want access to all their favorite content on their Fire TV abroad.

NordVPN also has several cool functions besides the ability to unblock Netflix and other streaming services abroad. If security is of the essence, you can use their Double-VPN connections, meaning that it gets even harder to track down your online movements as you use their services.

NordVPN has applications available for all the important and frequently used devices out there, including Windows, iOS systems, Android systems, Linux, Amazon Fire TV, and they also have browser extensions available for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. They also support functions such as a kill-switch that will stop all your Internet connection if the VPN connection drops (very important if you use a open and unsecure public WiFi network), and they have their so-called CyberSec function which will keep you safe from suspicious websites, will hinder ads from showing up, and also do its uttermost to keep malware far away from you and your devices.

Can I watch Netflix on Amazon Fire TV abroad?

Fire TV and NetflixThe answer to your question is yes! If you have an Amazon Fire TV or maybe an Amazon Fire TV Stick and you are currently somewhere outside the USA you can still enjoy and watch Netflix using your stick or TV box.

To make this work the very best way is to have a working VPN subscription to PureVPN and make sure to include their SmartDNS service. Then you need to make some modifications to your router, meaning that you tell it to use the DNS servers provided by PureVPN, and then later you will need to block the Netflix application from by standard using the Google DNS servers. This is quite complicated, but you can read more about how to fix it in this article.

If you make these modifications on a router level you will at once be able to enjoy Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV or using your Fire TV Stick also outside the United States.

Another way is to use PureVPN and connect to a VPN server in the United States. Your computer will then get an American IP address. Later in the PureVPN application they have now just introduced a new function which they call Virtual Router – Virtual Hotspot. You can find this under Settings in the menu. Activate it and now you can use this WiFi network as you setup your Fire TV or your Fire TV Stick, and it should be working again. The only problem I had was that the Virtual Router function did not really work, so instead I used Connectify which is a Virtual Router application for Windows and it worked great.

All in all the answer is yes… it is possible to watch Netflix using a Fire TV or a Fire TV Stick abroad, but to watch the US Netflix you will need to make the Netflix application believe you are in the United States, something that can be done by using one of the two mentioned methods in this article!
