How to set up VPN Unlimited on your Google Chromecast
Google Chromecast is a digital media player that allows you to stream any number of video and audio apps to your HD television. However, a number of streaming services available with Chromecast are region-restricted. The content accessible from Europe differs from the variety of shows, music, and services available for the US users.
Want to enrich your online experience and enjoy enhanced online freedom? Using Chromecast with VPN is a perfect solution. Though Chromecast devices do not have built-in VPN clients, you can still get all the advantages of the VPN service. For this purpose, you need to connect your Chromecast to a VPN-enabled router.
Alternatively, you can configure KeepSolid SmartDNS on your Chromecast. It also provides access to geo-blocked content, but doesn’t encrypt traffic, so your original speed isn’t affected in any way.
