I have a smart tv and want to use a VPN on it. however samsung smart tv doesnt support apps for VPN.

Will i need a seperate VPN router? My bt infinity hub does not support VPN access i believe?

If so, how do i go about this, and what do i need?

Thankyou

I had a Samsung TV in the UK and had iPVanish loaded onto a Firestick which worked fine.

Back to this, does anyone have one? What type and are they easy to set up?

Want to put my whole home network behind it

I have a VPN with private internet access and would like to use that if possible

Can't help you on the TV front, but if you want your whole network behind a VPN then I'd recommend going with a VPN router option, replacing your existing one.

It's usually a bit of a pain to set up, but once it's done there's no config necessary on the TV, or any other device, at all.

What VPN you using mate?

Can't help with the Smart tv via VPN but Aldbourne is thinking the same way I am about it.

Oh the company called that, doh! Smiley can you watch iFollow on that, just out of interest? I am looking at a new VPN to move away from ExpressVPN who doesn't allow iFollow streaming.
