Xiaomi's TV Box (previously called Mi Box) streaming devices are powered by Android TV, which makes them compatible with VPN apps. So, you can download and install ExpressVPN on any Xiaomi TV Box in a matter of minutes, which is exactly what we'll show you in this guide.

Keep in mind that ExpressVPN doesn't provide a list of supported Xiaomi TV Box models. Still, this VPN requires Android 5.0, which means all the currently available TV Box streamers should work without any issues (that includes the original Mi Box, Mi Box S, Mi Box Pro, Mi TV Stick, TV Box S, and more).

How to Download and Install ExpressVPN on Xiaomi TV Box

To download and install ExpressVPN on your Xiaomi TV Box device, you need to subscribe to the VPN and then turn to the Play Store. These are the steps you need to follow:

1. Subscribe to ExpressVPN using your computer and any Web browser.

2. Now, turn to your Xiaomi TV Box and open "Google Play Store."

3. Use the Play Store’s search bar found at the top to search for "ExpressVPN."
