With the 2018 World Cup now in full swing, there are lots of folks watching matches on their big screen TV that may not be currently in their home country.

The app lets those devices connect to online streaming TV networks and channels in over 62 countries, which is where NordVPN’s servers are located. If you wanted to watch the local BBC coverage of the World Cup while you are in the U.S., you can just connect to the U.K. server with the NordVPN app and then watch the matches from that network.

There are other benefits that come with the NordVPN Android TV app. One is that using the app with NordVPN’s services will keep your device secure and away from hackers. Another benefit is that you can get an overall better streaming video experience, as some ISPs throttle downloads when they connect to streaming services like Netflix.

The app is now available to download, but you will have to open the Google Play Store on your Android TV device to snap it up. You can also sign up for a two-year subscription to NordVPN for just $69, or 80 percent off its normal price, with a 30 day money back guarantee.
