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

It’s true that Samsung Smart TVs can’t run VPN applications. However, ExpressVPN has come up with a specialized tool for unblocking new types of content. So, let’s talk about how to set up and use ExpressVPN on a Samsung TV. 

Note

In theory, any smart TV made by Samsung should work with ExpressVPN. Still, it is recommended to run the latest software version on your TV. You can update its software by going to Settings > Support > Software Update > Update Now. Depending on your smart TV model, you’ll want to check other ways of updating as well. 

Important

In this article, we will talk about setting up ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer. This tool is designed to unblock media streaming content – but doesn’t replace a fully-featured VPN. The only way to get complete VPN protection on your Samsung TV is to install ExpressVPN on a router.

1. Begin this procedure by signing up for ExpressVPN

2. Once you get to ExpressVPN’s site, click on any of the buttons labeled ‘Get ExpressVPN.’

3. Pick a subscription, input your email address, and provide your payment details. 

4. Once done, you will receive a confirmation email from ExpressVPN’s team. 

5. At this point, return to ExpressVPN’s website (make sure that you’re on its homepage). 

6. Select ‘My Account‘ using the website’s main menu (in the top-right corner).

7. Provide your email address and password and log-in to access your online dashboard. 

8. You might be asked for a verification code, which you’ll get via an email message. 

9. Once you access your online dashboard, click on ‘DNS Settings‘ on the right. 

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

15. On the right, you’ll see a list of supported devices. Click on ‘MediaStreamer.’

Tip

Keep in mind that some Samsung TVs might be region-locked, making it impossible to unblock certain media streaming services. In that case, we recommend using your smartphone (with ExpressVPN installed and running) and mirroring its screen using your Samsung smart TV. 

With that said, we recommend checking our article on installing ExpressVPN on iPhones and iPads, as well as setting up ExpressVPN on Android devices.

That would be all on how to set up and use ExpressVPN on a Samsung Smart TV. In case of any questions or doubts, make sure to post your comment below. And lastly, thank you for reading!
