NordVPN + Fire TV + Netflix = not working

15
Posted 2nd Nov 2018
Hi
I'm genuinely confused as to why the above combo is not working.
I have FireTV (4k), installed NordVPN app and connected to US server
Opening netflix it loads the movie and suddenly states I'm connected via VPN/Proxy

I try the same on my mobile (same server etc) and it works absolutely fine.

Can someone explain to me why does it work on my mobile (over the same WIFI) but not on FireTV?
Is there a solution to this ?

Thanks in advance

Why would I need to change my provider.
Netflix us works on my mobile but not on fire TV (in the same house over the same network at the same time)
The only explanation would be issue with firetv or Nord , question is how to fix it and if anyone experiences the same issues

My mistake. Reading it only showed half of your issue.
It's been a long term issue. I use chromecast and sold the fire TV because of that.

How do you Chromecast us Netflix over vpn?


If imaging you’d have to put the vpn on your router, unless someone can correct me?
By the way, I use Nord on my fire stick and don’t have the same issue

Switch on the vpn on your phone,pick usa vpn server , go into Netflix, tap the chromecast option, pick show, press play.

I know it works on windscribe as I do it myself.

Works on windscribe, the USA Netflix server. I used it yesterday evening in fact.

As I said, it's a known issue, I've tweeted nord about it many times but they can't do anything. Or won't. Ultimately they say, the service works, and the device issue is not their fault.

I use the Nord apk file from their website. It’s not brilliant, very clunky, but works fine
I made a thread about this too, nordvpn doesn’t work with Netflix USA on fire stick, express VPN works fine
