Why Use a VPN to watch Stream US Live channels on Firestick

The reason why we need to use a VPN to watch US Live Channels is that we are streaming from a third-party app called Rapid Streamz.

We don’t know if Rapid Streamz holds proper licensing to stream these channels, so we recommend using a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to stream US Channels on Rapid Streamz without a VPN, but it will only keep your IP address anonymous and your online identity hidden from your ISP.

The reason why we recommend using ExpressVPN is because of its strong security encryption and fastest speed connection. It also has an affordable price of $6.67/month (i.e. 12 Months + 3 Months Free) and you can use it on almost every device including FireTVStick.


ExpressVPN is the fastest Speed VPN (89 out of 100 Mbps) and it provides you a buffer-free experience with 3,000 VPN servers in 94 countries.
