How to Setup CyberGhost on Roku in Germany

CyberGhost is among one of the best-rated VPN providers in the industry. However, like its other counterparts, you cannot install the CyberGhost on Roku combo. This is because Roku does not support any VPN app and the provider doesn’t have proper guides on their website for installation on Roku.

How CyberGhost Helps Unblock Geo-restricted Channels on Roku in Germany

Licensing agreements between movie/show producers and content distributors often prohibit a title from being available in all regions of the world.

In fact, many streaming channels only work within their home countries, so if you try to watch it from abroad, it’s not going to work.

All online streaming services know which location you are accessing them from through your IP address. CyberGhost enables you to change your IP address to any of its supported locations.

Since most of the high-demand streaming content and channels are exclusive to the US, you can take advantage of US servers of CyberGhost to spoof your location and thus unblock any show, or movie, on any channel that is normally geo-restricted outside the US. You’ll be able to stream Netflix U.S in no time. Speaking of Netflix, here’s how you can watch Netflix with CyberGhost in Germany.

That being said, you might encounter speed fluctuations on some servers. You might want to check out my CyberGhost speed test blog in Germany to get an idea of what I’m talking about.

Finishing Up

Setting up the CyberGhost on Roku in Germany can be one of the best steps you can take to unlock any channel or show and forget to worry about the geographical availability of a movie. You’ll be surprised how much easier and more entertaining your life can get with the right VPN working on Roku in Germany.
