Google TV is a reliable way to access media content on TV via the internet. By connecting to the HDMI port of your TV, you can use it to install various apps. As some of the apps and media content are geo-restricted, you may need a VPN service to unblock them. When it comes to the VPN, IPVanish is one of the best VPNs preferred by users worldwide. IPVanish has 1,500+ servers across the world. Fortunately, Chromecast with Google TV supports installing IPVanish natively. IPVanish supports different protocols like IKEv2, TCP, and UDP.
