What are your thoughts for using IPVanish for KODI? How do you install it on a Nvidia Shield? Also if its being used on the shield can it also be used on a surface Pro 4 or can it only be used on one device? Thanks

I have IP Vanish on an Android box, and on a Fire TV stick, as well as my PC. Just install the app, logon on with details, the first time, and away you go. I think on the whole it does get me more items than not having it. I also thought it would slow me down too much, but to date has been no problem with speeds using it. I am allowed up to 5 separate devices with the account, so just
install app on each one and then access is easy.

I love the fact IPVanish is very fast compared to PIA (Private Internet Access) but it has unfortunately problems with Real-Debrid. Will have to test Premiumize next.

I tried purevpn on amazon fire tv == they were honest enough to state that it would not work- so i installed IPvanish --To say it is disappointing would be an understatement .. It is near useless . Channels i can get without IPvanish ,often can not be received using it. When i can use it -stuttering and cut outs occur -- IPvanish do not seem to make excuses for this -- they simply state that it is used by so many different items that they cannot cover them all efficiently -- so if you use an Amazon firetv box then do not waste your time and money with this rubbish system

I hve IPvanish installed on 7 devices i.e Computers and Fire Sticks, and all appears to work just fine. I can watch Canadian content Tv via the internet when away. Beware of special rates as they DONOT apply to anyone renewing.

I installed IPVanish and tried to use it while streaming...
Found out that if I turn it on it just cuts out my internet all together. I live in the
NE USA and...Blah IP Vanish

You might want to contact their support. This should not happen.
NOTE. You should only need a VPN if you stream Torrents or if you wish content that cannot be viewed in the US without a VPN.

Hi again, I installed the VPN IPvanish as I read it was the thing to do
until the above happened. I am told since I only watch TV and movies on my firestick, that I
most likely don't need a VPN. Honestly, I don't care who sees me anyway as I don't even watch
porn...lol...But you are correct in the fact that the VPN should cut the use of my net in any way.
But it does however, (I tried it again today) and within minutes...My internet was useless. Do you
think it's my internet provider doing that?...I will contact IPV's support and see what they say
about that though.. -LT

Hi RavRob, It turns out you were correct. It wasn't my internet provider that
was interrupting my services. It turns out, I did some poking about in the "TroubleShooter" section of
IPV home page and found a fix were I had to change my "Active Protocol" in settings. That did the trick
I connected and was able to use my internet while IPV was connected and running...So, Job done. I am
hoping this will be useful information to those with the same "Newbie" problems. And thank you for your help.

IPvanish work good with kodi but if we talk about real debrid there are lots of IP address aren't white listed. On real debrid site they recommend PIA and perfect privacy on top.
