The Nvidia Shield TV app got a much needed update today. The app shortcuts are nice.

Fire stick now has the Apple TV app as I noticed today. I travel with the fire stick so this is great news as I have a rather large Apple TV library.

This is a great example of what I meant.

I think I'm going to switch back to PIA. I use Nord but they just got hacked and I'm hearing about it second-hand. They don't let you connect on a per-app basis either so that's enough to convince me.

Nord's "hack" was a little weird. I'm not to worried about it.

Actually I wouldn't recommend PIA at the moment, Hulu just stopped working for me. I decided to try TorGuard for a month which allows you to buy a dedicated US IP for streaming so it's guaranteed to work for any streaming service, but that addon makes it quite a bit pricier, and their Android app still needs work. After doing some research, I'm going to give SurfShark and CyberGhost a try when my month with TorGuard is up. Both state they work with Hulu and US Netflix without a private IP, their apps allow per app settings, and the prices on 1-2 year plans are quite good

Oops too late. I got an email from PIA offering a good deal that stated "now supports streaming services". I just tried Hulu and the login keeps timing out. Nord worked, go figure.
