You asked, and we listened — Hotspot Shield Premium is now available for TV! This new feature lets you easily stream your favorite TV shows, movies, games, and sporting events on Android TV, any smart TV that has access to the Google Play Store, and Amazon’s Fire TV via your Fire TV Stick.
Compatibility for TV has been our most requested feature from our customers. Our Hotspot Shield for TV app is the perfect addition to our mobile and desktop offerings, allowing more of you to access the content you want, when you want it — on the biggest screen in your home.
What devices is Hotspot Shield for TV compatible with?
You can now find Hotspot Shield on any smart TV that features the Google Play Store. You’ll also be able to get Hotspot Shield on Fire TV by searching the Amazon store on your Fire TV Stick. If your TV has built-in Fire TV, you’ll find the Hotspot Shield app there too.
If you don’t have a compatible smart TV or Amazon Fire TV Stick, fear not: you can use an Android TV box to download the Hotspot Shield app and connect it to any TV you like.
