Apple to Bring Third-Party VPN Support with tvOS 17

For all the movie lovers and binge-watchers out there, Apple’s tvOS 17 which is soon to arrive this year will be bringing third-party VPN support to Apple’s TV devices, allowing its users to access more contents which are blocked due to geographic restrictions.

For those of you who didn’t know, VPN helps its users re-routing the internet connection through a secure server of their choice in a different location, changing the visible IP address to that of the IP address of the VPN server. This enables users to access geographically restricted content on streaming platforms and even allows them to watch local sports broadcasts of a different region.

The VPN support was one of the most wanted features of Apple TV users and to date, they have been trying means like running the VPN through the Wi-Fi routers or by sharing it via their computer devices and both these methods are really complicated at the same time expensive. While most of its competitors had this feature long back, it was high time for Apple to bring third-party VPN support.

Apart from this, Apple’s tvOS 17 operating system will also be bringing FaceTime and video conferencing support along with many other new features to its TV devices.
