PIA’s Smart DNS bypasses your ISP’s DNS to hide your IP address and change your virtual location. This allows you to bypass network blocks to access content in countries worldwide. For example, if you travel to Australia from the US, you can use Smart DNS to retain access to your Hulu account on Apple TV.

Smart DNS doesn’t encrypt your connection or redirect it through our VPN, meaning it will never impact your connection speeds.

The easiest way to get PIA on your Apple TV is with Smart DNS. To set up Smart DNS, open the Settings menu on your Apple TV and pick Wi-Fi from the network menu. Next, choose Configure DNS under Network and enter your Smart DNS IP.

You can also install our VPN on your router. This gives your entire home network VPN protection, including your Apple TV. Our NextGen server network is optimized for speed, meaning you’ll always enjoy seamless and buffer-free streaming, whichever method you choose.

As well as your Apple TV, you can use PIA Smart DNS on a wide variety of devices, including Chromebook, PlayStation, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and many more. You can find easy-to-follow instructions for installing Smart DNS and the VPN app on most devices in our website’s Support Portal.

One subscription allows you to install PIA on up to 10 devices simultaneously. Aside from Smart devices, PIA has native VPN apps for all major operating systems including Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and Linux.

You can also install PIA on your router to protect every device connected to your in-home network at once. A router only counts as one device, leaving you with 9 more device connections.

Watch whatever you want on Apple TV with all the benefits of a VPN. PIA works with any app on your Apple TV, so whatever you’re watching, you can enjoy it free from ISP throttling and other network restrictions.

If you want to change your virtual location, but don’t need encryption, use our Apple TV Smart DNS to get a new IP address without affecting your connection speed.

PIA subscription plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try our VPN completely risk free. If for any reason you find that PIA isn’t right for you, we’ll give you a full and hassle-free refund.

Probably not. Even if you manage to find one compatible with Apple TV, it probably won’t be fast enough for smooth streaming. Many free VPNs also track and sell your usage data to cover their costs.

For buffer-free movie nights and complete privacy protection, choose PIA VPN. Our Smart DNS gives you lightning-fast streaming speeds on Apple TV with zero loss of quality. We’ll never record any of your usage data, ever, and our No Logs policy has been proven in court.

Yes, you can, but to access them you’ll need to change your Smart DNS address to the Apple ID country each time you switch accounts. Multiple Apple IDs can be used on Apple TV, and other Apple devices, but not at the same time.

No. Apple TV is a media player device while Apple TV+ is a streaming service known for popular original shows like Ted Lasso and The Morning Show. Apple TV+ is not automatically included with Apple TV.

Apple TV+ is compatible with a wide range of devices, and you don’t need an Apple TV to watch it.

All VPNs slow your speeds to some extent, but with PIA you’ll soon forget you’re even using a VPN. Our network exclusively uses NextGen VPN servers with 10 Gbps connectors, so you’ll get lightning-fast connection speeds every time.

Using PIA’s Smart DNS doesn’t affect your internet speeds at all, because it bypasses the VPN tunnel completely. This makes it perfect as a VPN for Smart TVs where security isn’t the primary concern.
