    I am stationed in Germany. I have a new apple TV. How do I play Hulu and Netflix on it. I have VPN shield on my MAC mini, IPad, and iPhone so I can access Hulu through them but I would like to access it through my apple TV.

    Tried sharing your internet connection from your Mac?

    Sign up to Unotelly or UnblockUS if you want an approach that involves minimal faffing around...

    I just use one of the free US DNS for my iPhone and then AirPlay it to the apple tv.

    I haven't yet found a reliable free one for apple tv.

    What about tunlr?

    It's free and it works by just changing the DNS Server in the apple tv settings.

    Haven't found a downside yet.

    Personally I am using Unotelly via AirPlay via iPhone to stream Netflix and Hulu. I haven't faced any bug yet.

    You might consider a router that allows you to connect to a VPN directly. Then ALL of your connected devices will be tunneled through the VPN from a single endpoint - and there is no more connecting and disconnecting each one individually. You can leave it permanently connected as you like, or control it from the router's management page.
