How to set up FastVPN on Android TV

To set up FastVPN on Android TV, you will need:

  • A secure FastVPN connection (Don’t have one? Sign up here!);
  • Access to your FastVPN account panel in order to get your network credentials;
  • The OpenVPN app (which you can get from the Play Store).
Once OpenVPN is installed, it is necessary to complete the configuration by uploading a config file that defines the settings or preferences for the OpenVPN connection.

You can download all of the config files for all of our servers directly from this page or from your FastVPN account panel.
