Free VPN services are pretty rare on the internet and when it comes to Android TV, it gets rarer. Moreover, free VPN apps for Android TV that are available aren’t reliable. So, that makes the list scarce. Hence, I went through the Play Store and over a period of time formed a curated list of free VPN apps that I actually use. Here are some of the best free VPN apps for Android TV that don’t require a credit card.

Free VPN Apps for Android TV Browsing

1. Hide.me VPN

Hide.me is a VPN service that provides you free VPN with a few limitations. Instead of limiting your bandwidth, HideMe provides you with 10 GB/mo. You get to choose from 5 different server locations. The only caveat in the free variant is that it doesn’t unlock geo-restricted streaming content, which is the case with most free VPN services.

Hide.me provides you with a 1-day free trial for the premium plan. Post that, you would have to subscribe to the free plan. In case you enjoy the experience, Hide.me prices start at $4.99/mo. (24+2 month).

Features:

  • Fast streaming speed with 10 GB/month data cap

  • Doesn’t work with streaming services

2. Speedify VPN

Speedify VPN is another free VPN service. However, unlike other VPN services, it doesn’t limit your streaming bandwidth. In fact, Speedify burst into the scene as an internet speed up service that combined your Wi-Fi and cellular internet. It can’t do that on Android TV.

Speedify VPN provides you 1600+ server locations. The only caveat is a meagre monthly limit of 2 GB/mo.

Features:

  • Faster streaming speed
  • Access to servers of over 50+ countries
  • Data Cap of 2 GB/mo

3. Windscribe VPN

Similar to Hide.me VPN, Windscribe VPN is free to use with a 10 GB limit per month. If you opt-out of the email, it’ll provide you 2 GB/month. Windscribe VPN provides access to servers in 10 countries like the US, Canada, UK, etc. Unlike Hide.me, Windscribe VPN also provides malware and ad blocking in the free variant. You can even go ahead and block social media sites, NSFW content, etc.

Additionally, Windscribe VPN also unblocks streaming content from Netflix, PrimeTV, Disney+, and others.

4. PureVPN

If you need a VPN for cloud gaming as well as to unblock geo-restricted streaming content, there’s no alternative. There’s no free VPN app that provides you unlimited data cap and unblocks geo-restricted content. For instance, before paying for HBO Max, you just want to ensure that it works. In that case, you can use Pure VPN. It provides a 7-day trial without a credit card and no restrictions.

If you want to upgrade to the pro variant, Pure VPN is currently on sale at $1.99/mo. (5-year plan). It provides you a 10-device login with 6500+ servers.

5. ProtonVPN

There’s really no VPN app that provides unlimited data for Android TV. The only option we have is Proton VPN. The app is not at all optimized for Android TV UI. You would need to use SetOrientation app to shift it to landscape mode. Additionally, to operate the app you would have to use Zank Remote or an Air Mouse.

ProtonVPN provides you servers from 3 locations – USA, Netherlands, and Japan. You don’t have a data limit but your bandwidth is capped. Moreover, ProtonVPN does work with cloud gaming services but it doesn’t work with streaming apps.
