How to use VPNs when watching Amazon Fire TV overseas.

How to Use VPN with Amazon Fire TV

Amazon has gotten into the streaming media box game. Meet the Amazon Fire TV, and it’s got all of your favorite streaming media channels collected together in one small, portable, affordable package.

And since it’s portable, it’s the perfect companion on long trips, for business or pleasure. Staying in touch with your streaming media accounts, on the other hand, is a bit trickier. We’ll show you how to utilize the Amazon Fire to connect to your favorite streaming media content from anywhere in the world. But first, you should probably learn a little more about what makes the Amazon Fire TV so special…

Meet the Amazon Fire TV

Maybe you’re partial to your Roku or your Apple TV – we wouldn’t blame you (we carry those devices ourselves) – but a company like Amazon wouldn’t just enter the streaming media box game unless they were sure they had something special they thought could differentiate themselves.

Amazon Fire TV finds a happy medium between the Roku/AppleTV and the Wii by offering a high-end video streaming device as well as a mid-level casual gaming machine all in one box.

Amazon Fire TV versus AppleTV/ROku 3

Upgraded Processor, Storage, & Memory

  • 3 times the processing power of Apple TV and Roku.
  • Dedicated Adreno 320 graphics engine
  • 2 GB of memory—4 times that of  Roku, Apple TV, and Chromecast

Apple TV, for example, is powered by 2-GHz Single-core processor with its 512-MB memory used for caching media only.  Amazon Fire TV sports a 1.7-GHz Quad-core + GPU and comes with 8-GB storage and 2-GB of flash memory to prep even more video.

Amazon Fire TV Streaming Video Voice Search

This is one major game changer for a streaming player. No more clunky interfaces and bad keyboards. Use the voice search option on the Amazon Fire Remote & go which is not currently available with Roku or AppleTV.

Start Videos Instantly with Amazon Fire TV ASAP

Amazon claims that with its integrated ASAP (Advanced Streaming and Prediction), the Amazon Fire TV can learn learns what movies and shows you like and gets them ready for you to watch. That means it can preload these videos to destroy buffering and wait times before you even choose what you want to watch. The more you use Fire TV, the more accurate ASAP becomes, dynamically adapting to your viewing habits.

Amazon Fire TV Game Controller

Amazon Fire TV Gaming

That major hardware upgrade from standard players also allows this to be a high quality casual gaming device without having to switch set-ups on your TV. Amazon Fire TV brings together all of the things you love about other streaming media boxes, and adds a few more notable surprises of its own, such as easier, more affordable gaming. Most of the games can be played with the including remote control but you can also grab the Amazon Fire TV gamepad for $39.

As of now, there are approximately 125+ games available for play including Minecraft-Pocket Edition, or Asphalt 8, or The Game of Lifeand download with more to come. Enjoy best-selling titles from top game designers from Mojang, EA, Disney, Ubisoft, and others. Many Amazon Fire TV games are free with the average price of paid games is just $1.85.

Amazon Fire TV Top Streaming Apps

The channel lineup for top wrung streaming players is pretty standard across the board but we’ll try to give you a handy Amazon Fire TV Channel option line anyway.

Top Amazon Fire TV Channels: Netflix, WatchESPN, Pandora, Plex, Crackle, YouTube, Vevo, Hulu Plus, TuneIn, Showtime Anywhere, iHeart Radio, NBA Game Time, HuffPost Live, Amazon Prime Instant (of course), and  many more! One major missing option from the Amazon Fire TV at this time is HBOGO.

Child Protection with Amazon FreeTime

Announced and soon to be implemented within the Amazon Fire TV that you won’t find on Roku or AppleTV is Amazon FreeTime. FreeTime is a streaming player parental block to keep your kids from watching things they shouldn’t be watching. Create custom profiles for up to four kids, choosing the movies, TV shows, apps, and games they can access. Tired of unfettered access? Easily set up daily screen limits and restrict certain types of content …and perfect for kids

When kids use Amazon FreeTime, the background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design, displaying only titles they have permission to watch. The home screen carousel shows their recently watched movies and shows, and they can even navigate visually to content based on characters or topics—for example “Cinderella,” “Dinosaurs,” or “Puppies.”

They will also be offering FreeTime Unlimited content subscription designed for kids ages 3 to 8. Unlimited access to content from Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, PBS Kids, and more from just $2.99 per month.

Screen Mirroring (like Apple’s Airplay)

Love your Kindle Fire but wish you could flick images onto your TV screen. Now with the Amazon Fire TV you can. Connect your Kindle Fire with a TV instantly just like Apple’s Airplay.

How a Router Can Effect the Amazon Fire TV Experience?

One of the best things you can do to improve your Amazon Fire TV experience more than subscribing to a VPN is to subscribe to a VPN and run it through a FlashRouter.

At FlashRouters, we provide durable, versatile, and powerful machines made all the more effective with open-source replacement firmwares like DD-WRT and Tomato (as the video above explains). Better yet, a FlashRouter allows you to connect to your VPN through the router itself, saving you the time and energy of struggling through tricky VPN installation processes and connecting the Amazon Kindle Fire TV to a VPN connection instantaneous.

How to Watch Netflix Instant in Europe

Watch Netflix Instant from across Europe with the help of VPNs and VPN routers.

Enjoy Netflix Instant in Europe With VPN Routers

Netflix Instant and Europe have so far had a bit of a tricky relationship. You could easily be forgiven for not knowing whether or not the streaming HD video service was available in your country.

But don’t worry: if you’re in Europe and you want to watch TV shows on Netflix like House of Cards or Orange Is the New Black, you’re about to find out how easy it is to get what you’re after.

A History of Netflix Instant in Europe

We’ve covered this beat a little before, offering tips on how to watch Netflix Instant from Germany or even watch Netflix US from the UK, where a more Anglo-centric version of the streaming service is available.

But we figured, with Netflix Instant keeping the details of their expansion across Europe kind of mum, why not give advice to the whole continent at once?

You can assume that if you’re in the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, or Norway, Netflix Instant is there for you. But you may be missing out on a great deal of films and TV programs only available through Netflix US.

No one0 knows officially if Netflix Instant availability is impending in other major European countries from Spain, Italy, Germany, or anywhere in Europe. But who wants to wait only to get a limited TV catalog anyway!

So let’s take the guesswork out of the process and tell you how to enjoy American Netflix under any circumstances. No need for a Netflix equivalent in Europe when you can get the real thing anywhere at anytime.

Watch Netflix in Europe Using VPN Service Providers

Best VPN Service Providers for Netflix Instant Streaming HD Video

Use VPNs to Watch Netflix Instant in Europe

The ideal way to unblock Netflix service Europe is to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service provider, which will allow you to hide your location and change your IP unlocking a whole new world of streaming content from the US to Australia to the UK.

Not only that, VPNs are designed to allow web denizens access to a more secure/encrypted Internet browsing experience. Using a VPN, you can ensure your own online security, and allow yourself access to corners of the web that are restricted by geography.

It’s the latter point that’s most useful for streamers trying to watch Netflix Instant in Europe. You may live in a country that doesn’t have access to Netflix Instant (or a country like Finland with less streaming video options than Netflix US), but with a VPN, you can fool your computer into believing you’re in the United States or Mexico or any country that has all of the Netflix movies and TV shows you want to see. Log into your VPN and pick an American server if it’s Netflix Instant US you want to watch. It’s that simple.

Most VPN service providers worth their salt offer a multitude of US IP addresses, so that Netflix US streaming HD video is just a couple of clicks away. Our top recommended providers for American Netflix would include HideMyAss (with possibly the largest pool of US locations/IP addresses) or IPVanish (with top-notch speeds from their personally maintained Tier 1 servers. You can also visit our Official Supported Provider list to compare top VPN service provider options for yourself.

How To Improve Netflix Streaming Quality – The Best Netflix Routers

There are few things you can do to improve your Netflix Instant streaming HD quality video experience than get a FlashRouter. As the above video explains, a FlashRouter  makes networks faster and more efficient, and therefore makes VPN usage that much easier. Using a FlashRouter will allow you to connect to your VPN through the router itself, and by this allow you to watch Netflix Instant Streaming movies and TV shows in Europe on Roku, iPad, Apple TV, and other devices with one account.

Netgear R7000 AC1900 Nighthawk is perfect for streaming Netflix Instant from Europe.

The Netgear R7000 Nighthawk DD-WRT FlashRouter

Whatever your open-source firmware preference – whether you’re all about DD-WRT or Tomato – we’ve got the routers that will make your network sing. Say goodbye to annoying stalls and freezes that interrupt streaming video or gaming sessions: our routers will make those grievances a distant memory.

No matter the type of network you’re running – whether you’re looking for a wireless router powerful enough to run a big office (like the new Netgear R7000 Nighthawk DD-WRT or the Asus RT-AC66U Tomato) or an excellent economy model to cover your home (such as the Cisco Linksys E2500 Tomato or the Asus RT-N16 DD-WRT) – FlashRouters has the solutions for you.

Questions? We now ship worldwide with USPS & FedEx. Review our shipping FAQ or contact our Sales team by clicking the chat button at bottom of the right hand side of the screen: they are standing by, ready to alleviate any of your networking or shipping logistic concerns.

FlashRouters’ Security & Internet Privacy News Roundup (April 2014)

Internet Privacy and Online Security News

FlashRouters’ Internet Privacy & Online Security News Roundup

In the ever-shifting landscape of internet privacy and online security, it’s important to stay informed. You can never really predict what form of malevolent online forces will take. Technologies specifically designed to increase internet security can be the perfect solution one day and totally invalid the next.

That’s why we’re happy to do this Internet Privacy & Online Security news roundup; in the interest of keeping our customers and readers fully aware of what new or recurring dangers exist on the web and offering the best possible solutions to maintain the integrity of their networks.

Top Internet Privacy & Online Security News Stories

Governmental Snooping Stories

NSA’s UK Partner Targets German Companies (CNET) – It’s been revealed that the NSA’s UK counterpart, the British Government Communications Headquarters (or the GCHQ), has been spying on German internet companies. Much like many of the similar revelations we’ve seen in the last year, these come straight out of the leaked Snowden files.

President Obama Calls for an End to NSA Bulk Data Collection (New York Times) – In related news, perhaps finally galled by the extent of the NSA’s tremendously invasive breaches of privacy, President Obama is calling for an end to the security agency’s bulk data collection. It’s certainly a move in the right direction.

China Tightens Internet Security to Protect from US Cyber Attacks  (Reuters) – Despite President Obama’s vows, China has developed a little edginess about the NSA’s roving eye, and has decided to beef up their internet security. China reportedly made this decision in light of the revelation that the NSA managed to infiltrate the servers at Huawei Technologies Co. The Chinese Defense Ministry claims this move laid “bare the United States’ hypocrisy and despotic rule.” Let that one sink in for a while.

FlashRouters Internet Privacy & Online Security Roundup

FlashRouters Internet Privacy Roundup: Governmental Snooping

Turkey Hijacks Google’s Internet Domain (The Sydney Morning Herald) – Google has accused Turkey of redirecting users away from their site and sending them to Turkish servers that serve as phony version of Google. This is, of course, all part of Turkey’s larger plan to limit the free web activity of their citizens, a plan which has thus far included banning YouTube (for sharing incriminating audio files of a Turkish state security meeting, involving plans to invade Syria) and Twitter (as we’ll discuss more below).

Government-Sponsored Hackers Attack Journalists (CNET) – Google security engineers Shane Huntley and Morgan Marquis-Boire recently spoke at the Black Hat hackers conference in Singapore and revealed that 21 of the 25 top news organizations in the world have been targeted by hackers. Though there’s no confirmation of this, Huntley and Marquis-Boire seemed fairly certain that these hackers are working on behalf of governments searching for information.

Why Privacy Is Actually Thriving (Wired) – Okay, this one isn’t really news, but Wired’s Nathan Jurgenson wrote an op-ed claiming that the ways in which we use social media to constantly reveal things about ourselves doesn’t really limit our privacy so much as re-contextualize it. It’s worth a read.

Watch Every Cyber Attack in the World in Real Time (Gizmodo) – This one has the benefit of being both terrifying and kind of cool: Kasperkspy Labs has developed an interactive map that allows you watch every cyber attack across the globe as it’s happening. Obviously, the implications are scary, but damn, if they didn’t create a really cool looking map.

Technology Fights Back (For the Most Part)

Turks Circumventing Twitter Ban with a Simple App (Tech-World) – Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan may need to figure out another way to limit his citizen’s right to free speech (that’s meant as mocking sarcasm, not a real suggestion), as his critics are proving resilient against his attempts to shut down Twitter in Turkey. By using a simple security and internet privacy Google Chrome app, ZenMate, Turkish citizens are bypassing Erdogan’s censorial decrees. Others are relying on VPNs (such as our good friends at Overplay or HideMyAss) to get around this ban.

No-Card-No-Button ATMs (ZDNET) – Click on the link and watch a video of one of these things in action. Diebold has taken the ATM card and all of the buttons out of the ATM scenario, opting instead to allow users with smartphones to simple perform all of their ATM tasks through their phones. There are any number of benefits to this, such as being able to allow other people to use your ATM account by putting them through a brief, but safe, verification process.

FlashRouters Internet Privacy Roundup: Technology Fights Back

FlashRouters Internet Privacy Roundup: Dirigible Drones

Dirigible Drones (Wired) – On the less promising front, here we have StratoBus, a dirigible drone the length of a football field that is designed to hover 13 miles up. On the plus side, StratoBus is a satellite meant to reinforce communications, facilitate navigation. But, of course, there’s also the more sinister element that involves surveillance and the admittedly often beneficial world of border security monitoring. Whatever you focus on, a hundred yard dirigible drone just sounds ominous.

 And Finally…

Thank Plato for Encryption (Slate) – A video from the Royal Institution (animated by 12foot6 and Phoebe Halstead) demonstrates the ways in which the ancient Greeks set into motion every mathematically-reliant technological advance we have in our midst today, including encryption.
