Hot on the heels of their rival at the top of almost all Best VPN tables, ExpressVPN, NordVPN has become the latest premium VPN provider to launch a dedicated Apple TV VPN app.

The new NordVPN Apple TV app has been launched swiftly following Apple’s roll out of their tvOS 17 update, which is the first software update that allows Apple TV devices to support third-party VPN apps.

As a result of this move, Apple TV users can now enjoy all of the benefits of a NordVPN subscription directly through their device while still being able to enjoy all their favourite Apple TV shows.

Why Apple TV users should be using a VPN

There is a myth that Apple devices are immune to cyber-attacks, but this is not the case. Using a VPN with your Apple TV will offer you increased online security from cyber-attackers and online surveillance from state and non-state actors alike.

However, we would like to point out that this is a highly unlikely scenario, but a benefit none-the-less.

When an Apple TV user connects to a VPN, their online identity and activity are protected, meaning that their Internet Service Provider, their Government, and any hackers that might be lurking around can all not see what they are up to online.

And, of course, there are other benefits too.

If you are travelling abroad and want to enjoy your favourite shows or movies on the road, using a VPN will help.

Apple TV content is often restricted based on your geographic location and the IP Address associated with your internet connection. This means that if you are abroad, your favourite show might not be available.

But, if you connect your NordVPN app to a server in your home country, you will still be able to watch everything you love no matter where in the world you are.

Why use NordVPN with your Apple TV?

With NordVPN joining a growing list of premium VPN providers who are taking the opportunity to add an Apple TV app to their stable, the question is, why should you choose NordVPN to use with your Apple TV?

Well, it is one of the fastest VPNs on the market, which means that no matter where in the world you are connecting from, NordVPN won’t have a detrimental effect on your streaming experience.

It is also now one of the easiest VPNs to use with an Apple TV device. The app can be downloaded with just a couple of clicks with no need to go through any of the rigmarole of a manual set up.

Then there is the fact that NordVPN is one of the most robust and feature-heavy VPNs on the market right now.

As well as 256-bit AES encryption and an independently verified privacy policy that guarantees no user logs, it also boasts features like double VPN encryption and Onion Over VPN, as well as Threat Protection, which blocks malicious websites and malware during downloads, trackers, and ads.

Commenting on the launch of the new Apple TV NordVPN app, Vykintas Maknickas, head of product strategy at NordVPN, said, “Users often forget that mobile phones and computers are not the only gateways to your network for cybercriminals.”

“A smart TV is usually connected to the internet, so it can also be hacked, and cybercriminals can spy on users, steal data, or even try to access other devices on the home network”, he continued.

“A dedicated VPN app for Apple TV will allow our users to ensure cybersecurity and protect their privacy. Moreover, a VPN can even improve the streaming experience by increasing users’ privacy.”
