How to Download, Install and Use ExpressVPN on LG Smart TV

Even though LG Smart TVs don’t support VPN applications natively, ExpressVPN has come up with a solution that lets you unblock media content. With that said, we’ll show you how to set up and use ExpressVPN on your LG Smart TV. 

Note

In general, any LG smart TV should work with ExpressVPN’s ‘MediaStreamer.’ Still, we recommend running the latest WebOS version on your LG Smart TV, especially when it comes to Web-related “unblocking” technologies. To update WebOS, navigate to Settings > Support > Software Update

Important

Keep in mind that ExpressVPN’s ‘MediaStreamer’ technology isn’t meant to replace a fully-featured VPN. Instead, it’s used only for unblocking media streaming apps. If you still need a VPN, our recommendation is to install ExpressVPN on a router

1. First, start by subscribing to ExpressVPN (click on the provided link).

2. Once you get to ExpressVPN’s website, click on ‘Get ExpressVPN.’

3. Select a subscription plan, enter your email address, and proceed with the payment

4. Once done, you will receive a confirmation email from ExpressVPN, so check your inbox. 

5. Then, return to ExpressVPN’s website. Make sure to be on its homepage

6. Click on ‘My Account‘ and log-in using your email address and password

7. If asked for a verification code, check your inbox and paste it from there. 

8. At this moment, you should access your online dashboard. Click on ‘DNS Settings.’

9. First, click on the ‘Register My IP Address‘ button (under ‘IP Address Registration’).

23. Scroll down and click on the ‘DNS‘ field. Copy the IP from ExpressVPN’s website

24. To confirm the new DNS values, press ‘Connect‘ at the bottom. 

25. Finally, restart your LG Smart TV for the DNS changes to become active. That’s it!

Tip

Despite using ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer, know that some apps from LG’s Content Store can still be geo-blocked (based on your TV model). In that case, our recommendation would be to use screen mirroring on your smartphone or tablet. 

With that said, here’s how to set up ExpressVPN on iPhones and iPad and how to get started with ExpressVPN on Android. Install the VPN on your phone, connect to a server, and then mirror its screen to your LG Smart TV. 

That would be all on how to set up ExpressVPN on your LG smart TV. If you have any questions or doubts, don’t hesitate to post your comment below. And lastly, thanks for reading!
