How to use VPN Unlimited on your WD TV streaming media device
WD TV devices are mostly used to watch online HD content. However, due to geo-restrictions, you can face an issue when accessing your favorite content on some popular media portals. A VPN service is just what you need here.
WD TV devices do not have built-in VPN clients. Thus, to enjoy all the advantages of the VPN service, you need to connect your WD TV streaming device to a VPN-enabled router.
Alternatively, you can set up KeepSolid SmartDNS service on your WD TV. It also provides unrestricted access to any streaming content, but unlike VPN software, doesn’t encrypt traffic letting you enjoy the maximum speeds possible.
