Anyways, In this guide, I have discussed how to set up CyberGhost on Roku devices in the easiest way possible for beginners.
With a single CyberGhost account, you can connect to 7 devices at a time. Meaning, you can connect CyberGhost VPN to Roku, FireStick, Mobile, Laptop, and more.
When you install CyberGhost, you get to unblock apps on Roku that are geo-restricted and gain access to popular streaming services like Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu, Disney Plus, and more. So, without wasting any time, let’s begin with the CyberGhost Roku setup guide.
How to Setup CyberGhost on Roku
CyberGhost is among one of the longest-serving VPN providers in the industry. However, like its other counterparts, you cannot install CyberGhost directly on Roku. 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.
But if you have a Windows PC, you can share a VPN-enabled connection from the PC to your Roku and gain access to all content and streaming channels that are otherwise blocked for you.
Here is what you need to do to install CyberGhost on Roku in just 5 minutes:
Step 2: Download and install CyberGhost windows app
Step 3: Click on Internet connection icon in the taskbar then click on Network & Internet Settings
Step 4: Click on Mobile hotspot on the left menu and toggle on the Share my Internet connection with other devices button
Step 5: On the left hand menu, click on Status > Change adapter options
Step 6: Right-click on the CyberGhost Tap Adapter > Properties
Step 7: On the Sharing tab, check the box next to “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection”
Step 8: Select the hotspot that you earlier created and click Ok
Step 9: Now launch the CyberGhost app and connect to a US server
If your Roku isn’t already configured on the US region, you will need to perform the following additional steps first. Otherwise simply jump to step 16.
Step 10: Connect CyberGhost to a US server and visit https://owner.roku.com on your PC or mobile
Step 11: Select your country as United States
Step 12: Enter a 5 digit US ZIP Code (92105, 23589 etc.)
Step 13: Hold the Reset button on the back of your Roku device for 15 seconds to enable Factory reset
Step 14: When the device starts up again, log in with your new US region account
Step 15: Now select Settings > Network
Step 16: Choose Set up Connection > Wireless
Step 17: All available Wi-Fi connections should now appear in a list. Select the hotspot you created using CyberGhost
Step 18: Enter your Wi-Fi password
If you properly set it up, your Roku should now be connected to CyberGhost. But aside from Roku, CyberGhost works amazingly well with Kodi.

How CyberGhost Helps Unblock Geo-restricted Channels on Roku
Licensing agreements between movie/show producers and content distributors often prohibit a title from being available in all the 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, 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.
That being said, you might encounter speed fluctuations on some servers. You might want to check out my CyberGhost speed test blog to get an idea of what I’m talking about.
Setting up CyberGhost on Roku can be one of the best steps you can take to unlock any channel or show and forget worrying about the geographical availability of a movie. You’ll be surprised how much easier and entertaining your life can get with the right VPN working on Roku.
