Apple TV Setup

Zoog VPN Apple TV installation

Before we start an active ZoogVPN subscription is required and your device must be connected to the Internet.

The following guide will take you through the steps required to install Zoog VPN on your Digital media player Apple TV. Apple TV users can establish Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to encrypt digital data, provide network anonymity and unblock streaming services directly on their Apple TV. However, Apple TV does not provide support for setting up a VPN. Therefore, we will show you other means of using your Zoog VPN with Apple TV.

You can use three methods to set up a VPN on your Apple TV.

  1. Via a Wireless Router Running a VPN
  2. Via a Laptop running a VPN and connected as a Wi-Fi hotspot
  3. Via PC or Laptop connected with VPN as Ethernet

Connect Apple TV to a Wireless Router Running a VPN

Follow these simple steps to set up a VPN with Apple TV using a wireless router.

Step 1 – Get an active VPN Subscription

We’re assuming at this point you already have an active Zoog VPN subscription. If not, please ensure you have one.

Step 2 – Get a VPN Router

You’ll need a VPN router, the DDWRT router is the most suitable one.

Step 3 – Setup VPN on Router

Now, you need to set up the VPN on your router first to run it through the Apple TV. Click here for the Zoog VPN setup wizard for DDWRT Router.

Step 4 – Connect Apple TV with Wireless VPN Router

To connect Apple TV with the Wireless VPN router all you need to do is select the correct network.

Switch on your Apple TV device > go to Settings > General > Network > Configure Wi-Fi > Select Your Wi-Fi Network > Enter Password > Done!

Open up the browser on Apple TV and go to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video website and enjoy watching all your favorite TV shows and movies.

Connect Apple TV to a Laptop Running Zoog VPN & Acting as a Wi-Fi

This is quite simple, all you need is the following:

  1. A laptop with a LAN/Ethernet internet connection
  2. A valid Zoog VPN subscription
  3. A Zoog VPN App for your device

Click here to install Zoog VPN App with VPN Setup Wizard on your device.

Download, install and run the Zoog VPN app on your desktop device. Enter your username and password to connect to a US/UK server. Once your VPN is connected, all you need to do is convert your laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Here is a quick video tutorial on how to convert your laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Once you have a VPN running on your desktop and your desktop is converted into a Wi-Fi hotspot, all that is required is to connect your Apple TV to your WiFi hotspot and you’re done! So, locate your desktop Wi-Fi hotspot and enjoy!

Setup VPN on Apple TV Via Network Sharing Using Ethernet

To set up Apple TV VPN using Ethernet you will need your computer to work as a VPN router. To start with the VPN on Apple TV configuration, firstly, like before you will need an active Zoog VPN subscription and the app for your computer.

Click here to install Zoog VPN App with VPN Setup Wizard on your device.

Connect your PC to your local WiFi network. Now, attach one end of the Ethernet/LAN cable to your PC and the other to your Apple TV.

Connect to Zoog VPN and select US server. Then follow these simple steps:

For Windows PC:

Go to “Control Panel” and click on “Network and Sharing Center”

Click on “Change Adapter Settings”

Navigate to your “Connection Properties”

Under sharing tab, click on “Allow other network users to connect through this computer connection”

This will allow your Apple TV device to connect to the Internet via your computer with an Ethernet/LAN cable using the already installed and running VPN connection on the Windows PC.

For Mac OS:

Go to “System Preferences” and select “Sharing Option”.

Go to “Internet Sharing” and under the option titled “Share Your Connection from” select “Airport” mode.

Now, go to “To computer using” and select “Ethernet” so that your Apple TV device can use the internet through your Mac device’s Ethernet/LAN port.

Start your Apple TV and take full advantage of your Mac OS VPN to watch US/UK TV online streaming via Apple TV.

Enjoy! You have now taken control of your Internet freedom, privacy, and security.
