    Regarding the article HideMyAss. Please be aware that the latest update gives you one Swedish option “Sweden LOC1” where after it selects the server S1-S12 automatically. As swedish television basically only works on S4 and S5, HMA is no longer a preferred method.

    • Hello! Based on your comment I just tried to watch SVTPlay.se using HideMyAss, and it worked perfectly with all servers. It is possible to manually decide what server to use with HideMyAss, so in case there are some servers that do not work, you can pick one of those working instead. I know that TV4Play did not work with all Swedish servers provided by HideMyAss, but in general it is normally only the oldest IPs that are blocked, meaning that servers 4-12 should work fine.

    Can I conect my smart tv to the Swedish ip adress aswell

    Or can I have it on my iPad and share from that to my tv?

    Many thanks

    • Hello Rolle!
      Yes, you can!! You can either share your Windows VPN connection with the Smart TV, either connecting your Smart TV to the Windows PC using an Ethernet cable and doing some setup, or if you have two Ethernet cards. We will write a short how-to on this later!

      Or, you can setup your router directly, so that all your Internet traffic will be going through the VPN connection, and thus you will automatically be able to enjoy Smart TV using your VPN connection.
