Stream Aussie TV with a VPN

Travelers have a hard time streaming the same content they get back home. Australian streaming services must block people traveling abroad because the companies only have permission to deliver content within Australia. Global streaming services like Netflix may not block travelers but they don’t let travelers access the Australian content library. Having an Australian IP address solves this dilemma.

When you select “Connect” after opening the Hotspot Shield VPN app, you’ll see a list of the more than 80 countries where we host our VPN servers. Choose “Australia” and your web activity will pass through our Australia IP addresses. Hotspot Shield automatically selects the optimum server for your needs, but you can also select between six specific Aussie cities if you want.

No matter where in the world you travel, with Hotspot Shield VPN you can access the Australian content at services such as:


Amazon Prime Video

SBS on-demand

How to prevent your ISP from throttling your content

Internet Service Providers have been known to deliberately slow down, or throttle, video streams crossing their networks. Their systems detect video coming from, say, Netflix and route the data down slower paths on the ISP’s network. You’ll notice that the video quality of your video streams has degraded and your streaming app may pause frequently to refill its data buffers.

Hotspot Shield VPN can stop throttling. The military-grade encryption we apply to your data prevents your ISP’s throttling systems from detecting a video stream. As a result, you get full, high-definition video streams with no buffering.

What is the fastest Australia VPN?

At the turn of the century, Netflix was an American DVD rental service, Apple did not make iPhones, and Skype hadn’t been invented. This was also the time when software developers created OpenVPN, the technology upon which many VPN providers base their services. Unfortunately, OpenVPN tends to sacrifice streaming performance in order to keep VPN connections secure.

We developed Hotspot Shield to be a modern VPN for the modern internet. Streaming is an important part of both personal and business life online. That’s why we created our proprietary Hydra VPN protocol. Hydra delivers blazing-fast video streams across our global VPN network while maintaining ultra-secure connections. The third-party analysts at AV-TEST and Ookla‘s renowned independently verified that Hotspot Shield VPN is the fastest, most secure VPN on the market. Speedtest named Hotspot Shield the “world’s fastest VPN.”
