    Hi Everyone,

    Hopefully I am allowed to ask this here. I am potentially looking at purchasing a firestick 4k to allow me to run a VPN giving me access to US Netflix from another country.
    I have tried 2 different chinese android tv boxes where netflix runs fine but detects the vpn (however on my android phone netflix runs fine with the vpn) and it runs fine through a browser on a pc with netflix.

    Does anyone here use netflix on a firestick and a vpn?

    Here's a good tutorial on implementing a VPN service to a Firestick:
    https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/install-vpn-amazon-fire-tv-stick/
    ... and just to re-emphasize some points in the article, if you don't want to their recommended choice, be careful and pay a lot of attention when choosing which VPN service you do subscribe to. Finding a free one that has an app that runs on a Firestick will be really tough as most free VPN services are a bit dodgy, and the situation is now so bad that even finding a pay-for one that's appropriate requires some background confirmation on your part.
