ExpressVPN on Apple TV: FAQs

Why can’t I download ExpressVPN on Apple TV?

The simple answer is because there’s not an official ExpressVPN app available on the Apple TV App Store. 

This is because Apple hasn’t allowed ExpressVPN (or any VPN provider), to put its app on the Apple TV store.

Can I Mirror content from an Apple device with ExpressVPN to my Apple TV?

Yes. Technically. You can Mirror the content that’s on your Apple device onto your Apple TV. However, the experience will be laggy and low quality – it’s not a method that you will want to use.

Can I cast ExpressVPN content to my Apple TV?

No. While you might be able to watch US Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu (etc) on your iPhone, iPad or MacBook – via the ExpressVPN app – you won’t be able to cast this content to your Apple TV.

That’s because the IP address that your streaming app sees (belonging to VPN server) will be different from the IP address your Apple TV is using (your home router). To cast content from an Apple device to Apple TV, the IP addresses need to match.
