Are you thinking about whether or not PrivateVPN is the VPN provider you are going to use on your Fire TV? Or have you bought a VPN subscription with PrivateVPN, and now you wonder if you can use it on your Fire TV or on your Fire TV Stick as well?
Last week, I wanted to give PrivateVPN a try on my Fire TV Stick. It was really easy to install their application, and I quickly got it up and running. But, as I tried to log in with my username and password, I got this error message about an error. I had no clue what to do, so I contacted their support.
I got a very quick answer, and I discovered that I had a different VPN connection running. As a result, I couldn’t log in with PrivateVPN while I had a different VPN connection running. I quickly disconnected from the ExpressVPN server, logged in with PrivateVPN and connected.
Did PrivateVPN work well on the Fire TV?
To be honest, it worked perfectly. I could easily connect to any of their servers, and if I connected to a Netflix friendly server in Canada, I could just open the Netflix application and stream all the available content on Canadian Netflix.
In the same way, I could connect to an Amazon Prime friendly server in the USA and stream Amazon Prime content, and I could let the list go on.
PrivateVPN has good speeds on their servers, meaning that I didn’t experience much latency either using the service.
CyberghostVPN is another VPN that I have used with the Fire TV. They have a function that automatically connects to one of their VPN servers as the Fire TV comes to life and uses certain WiFi networks. This is useful if you always want to use a VPN, but to be honest, it isn’t really needed. At first, I thought I missed this function with PrivateVPN, but I really don’t. After all, I change VPN servers frequently (as I want to access different Netflix regions and so), and that is why I can just as well connect manually to a server in the country I am interested in.
In other words, I am very satisfied with my testing of the PrivateVPN service on my Amazon Fire TV Stick. I have also used it to watch FuboTV, Hulu, and some more services, and I didn’t have trouble at all.

Do not forget that PrivateVPN also can be used as you try to stream Amazon Prime on your laptop, your computer, your tablet or your phone while abroad. You can simply pick Amazon Prime as your requested service, and the application will automatically connect you to a server in the United States working with Amazon Prime. It is really smooth and easy.
One could say that the application isn’t the nicest out there. A lot could be done with it to make it look nicer. But, I would much rather have an ugly application that is working well, than a beautiful application that doesn’t really do the job.
