Now that you have the app, you need to trick it into thinking that you’re streaming from a supported region. That’s easy to do with a VPN service like IPVanish. You can hide your traffic or switch regions online with the use of a VPN, allowing you to access content that may be restricted where you live. And Xumo TV on Firestick works well with most VPNs.
Not many people know that VPNs are a great hack that allows you to get extra free content without ever having to jailbreak your Firestick or download 3rd party free streaming apps. You can get free, blocked content on paid streaming apps like Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, and YouTube that is currently being kept from you!
Paid subscription streaming sites will block certain content depending on where you are.
