Smart DNS is like a mini VPN that lets you change your virtual location directly on your Samsung TV or other smart device. It works by rerouting your DNS query through our own servers instead of your ISP’s. Using Smart DNS as a VPN for your smart TV means that your data isn’t encrypted so don’t lose any connection speed.
To install PIA’s Smart DNS on your Samsung TV, log in to your PIA Control Panel, go to the Smart DNS Tab, then select Add New Device. Select your device from the list, then choose a server location to get your Smart DNS IP address.
On your Samsung TV, press the MENU button on your remote, go to Settings > General > Network > Network Status IP Settings. Then select DNS setting and set it to Enter Manually. Finally, select DNS Server and enter the PIA Smart DNS IP addresses.
PIA works with pretty much any smart device, including smart TVs, Android TV Box, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, Chromecast, and many more. It also works as a gaming VPN for your consoles, and can even be installed on your router.
Subscribe to PIA VPN and we’ll give you 10 simultaneous device connections. In addition to support for smart devices, consoles, and routers, PIA has apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS devices. Your subscription also includes VPN browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.
Yes, PIA’s Smart DNS feature works with all the apps on your smart TV. Smart DNS lets you change your IP address on your Samsung TV as a whole, so you can mask your location no matter which app you're using. Setting up Smart DNS is easy, but if you run into problems, contact our 24/7 Customer Support team, and we’ll get you up and running.
Yes, PIA subscriptions come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so if you try PIA and it doesn’t work for you, or you're not 100% satisfied, we’ll refund you in full. To request your refund, simply get in touch with our 24/7 Customer Support team.
Probably not. Free VPNs don’t usually have Smart DNS technology, so you’re unlikely to find one that works on your Samsung TV. They often don't work with streaming apps, and many sell your data to cover their costs.
PIA VPN fully supports Samsung TVs, and our Smart DNS technology works seamlessly with any app. Our No Logs VPN guarantees that we won’t collect or sell your data, and you’ll always get a blazing-fast VPN connection.
You can try PIA risk-free for 30 days with our money-back guarantee.
Yes, you can. Our Smart DNS feature doesn’t affect your internet connection speed in any way. That means you can stream in 4K without having to deal with any activity-based throttling, buffering, or limitations of any sort.
Our full VPN apps also give you more than enough speed for 4K streaming, and consistently deliver more than the 15 Mbps Netflix recommends.
Yes, all VPNs will slow down your streaming speeds because your data has to be encrypted and decrypted before it reaches its destination. PIA’s network uses 10 Gbps network connectors so that you won’t even notice any drop in connection speed. If you’re going to stream on your Samsung TV, our Smart DNS gives you a virtual IP address without any VPN encryption slowing you down.
Our 30-day money-back guarantee offers you 100% satisfaction or your money back.
