Stream Japanese TV with a VPN

When you leave Japan, you will lose access to your live TV streaming services. And even if the on-demand services you use in Japan are available abroad, you won’t get the same content. The Netflix catalog in Japan, for example, is not the same as the Netflix catalog in Australia.

If you have a Japan IP address, however, your streaming services will think you’re still in Japan. Hotspot Shield VPN restores your access by giving you a Japan IP address so you can keep watching Haken Uranaishi Ataru or Sokkuri Sweets.

Once you choose the “Japan” server location from within the Hotspot Shield app, a Japan VPN lets you access streaming services such as:

Amazon Prime Video

How to prevent your ISP from throttling Japanese content

If you notice your video streams suddenly become grainy or your streaming app suddenly pauses to buffer, then you may be the victim of throttling. Internet Service Providers can slow the data flowing from streaming services. There’s nothing you can do about it — unless you use a Japan VPN that’s optimized for streaming.

Download the best Japan VPN to stop your ISP from throttling your Japanese sports streams. Hotspot Shield VPN encrypts your streams the instant they arrive at our VPN servers. You ISP can’t tell where the data came from — or even that you’re streaming video — so it can’t throttle your content. Hotspot Shield VPN delivers the fastest VPN streams without buffering.

What is the fastest Japan VPN?

Many VPN providers run into the same problems with buffering when they try to deliver high-definition video streams. That’s because the open-source technology they’re based on was developed when the security of business networks was the top priority. This was years before streaming was a thing.

A modern VPN still has to provide secure connections on the internet, but it also has to deliver fast and reliable streaming. That’s why Hotspot Shield VPN developed the proprietary Hydra VPN protocol. When independent analyst firms like AV-TEST and Ookla’s Speedtest evaluate VPN providers, they rate Hotspot Shield as the fastest VPN on the market. No matter where you travel, you get seamless streaming performance without compromising security.
