For various reasons, some streaming sites actually block access to people using VPNs. They might also block you if you're outside of the United States. However, we have developed a unique service to circumvent these restrictions.
In order to watch Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and other US streaming services while connected to our VPN service, you will need the VPN Plus add-on. This add-on allows you to stream on apps & websites like these and many more from anywhere in the world, no matter where you're located.
Assuming you have already subscribed to the VPN Plus or the legacy Unrestricted Streaming add-on, follow the steps below to access these exclusive servers on your favorite device. It doesn't matter which device you're using, this article applies to Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and more.
This add-on is entirely optional. The alternative option is to disconnect from the VPN just while using these sites, and then re-connect once you're done.
Open VirtualShield and log in to your account, if you are not logged in already.
For more help logging in and connecting, see our support article.
Your current location will be displayed on the Home screen, below Selected Location.
It might say Fastest if you're not connected. Press the down arrow to choose a new location.
By default, we automatically select the closest and fastest server to protect you based on your physical location.
The list of Virtual Regions will appear.
Select one of the United States locations, then choose Confirm.
This only applies to our new apps. If you are using the Legacy application, you will need to select the Unrestricted Streaming, USA location.
That's it! You are now connected to our exclusive Unrestricted Streaming servers.
You will be able to access all of your favorite streaming services, online stores and more while being protected by our state of the art network.
Do I need Unrestricted Streaming if I live in the United States?
Answer: This depends on how often you stream video, if you travel, and your individual needs. Typically this add-on is not required if you live in the United States. However, there are certain banks, travel agencies, online stores, and other websites that actually block access to people using VPNs. Unrestricted Streaming can be used to circumvent these restrictions.
Do I need Unrestricted Streaming for free websites like YouTube?
Answer: No, Unrestricted Streaming is not required in order to stream video on free websites like YouTube, Twitch, and IMBb. This add-on is mostly intended for subscription-based services. These apps and websites can normally detect when you're using a VPN, and block/restrict your access.
