Why would I use ExpressVPN on my Apple TV?

The most popular reason for using a VPN service with Apple TV is to gain access to region-restricted content. If you want to access media only available in specific countries, such as Studio Ghibli movies on Netflix, or live sporting events not being broadcast where you live, then ExpressVPN can work for you.

It's worth noting, though, that this practice goes against the terms and conditions of Netflix and other streaming services. Using ExpressVPN on your Apple TV as described above also does not offer you the privacy benefits of using it on your other devices — it simply allows your location to be spoofed to access content from other regions. For full VPN protection for your Apple TV, you want to use ExpressVPN with your Wi-Fi router.
