It’s difficult not to include NordVPN on any list involving VPNs that are great to use with streaming services. I wasn’t surprised at how this VPN for FireStick performed, as I had the opportunity to personally test it on other platforms and use it to unlock regionally locked content.
Privacy and security are the main priorities, and NordVPN based its operation on that premise. The provider keeps no logs of your activity or traffic. That’s why NordVPN is based in Panama, which isn’t subject to data retention laws, and conducts third-party audits to confirm its policy.
NordVPN uses secure and reliable VPN protocols such as IKEv2/IPsec, OpenVPN, and NordLynx. These have proven as best performing for mobile and home connections and won’t noticeably impair your streaming speeds.
The Fire TV VPN app is available for multiple devices and versions of Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire Tablet. Installing and setting up NordVPN is a simple matter of searching for the app and installing it as it supports the native Fire OS.
NordVPN is one of the rare service providers that releases actual download test speeds of their servers. With most of them having download speeds of more than 250 Mbps, you won’t have any issues streaming even 4K video. Since there are more than 5,500 servers, even heavy traffic won’t impact your performance.
NordVPN is much more than just a convenient VPN for Fire Stick. I recommend it to anyone traveling to countries where internet censorship is the norm. Internet service providers there even block the use of VPN services, which isn’t the issue with NordVPN.
By using obfuscated servers, you can avoid firewalls that would keep you away from using a VPN. This is incredibly convenient if you are traveling with your Fire TV Stick and want to keep up with your TV shows while on vacation.
Considering how much you are getting from this VPN for Fire TV, the NordVPN pricing plans are per industry standard if you pay monthly at $11.99. However, there are significant discounts if you decide on a one or two-year plan at $4.99 and $3.99 per month, respectively.
Furthermore, you can use NordVPN on six devices simultaneously, making it convenient to protect your PC, smartphone, TV, router, and other devices and software.
NordVPN also offers Plus and Ultimate plans, which feature a password manager, a data breach scanner, and cloud storage for a more expensive monthly subscription. The basic plan is more than enough if you just need to install a VPN on Fire TV.
