Stream French TV with a VPN

French streaming services may change your access privileges when you travel — especially when you leave the European Union. Even if you subscribe to a global streaming service like Amazon Prime Video, the content you can watch will change depending on which country you visit.

The only way to preserve your access to French content and French streaming services is to have a France IP address. You can keep watching shows such as Les Revenants, Dix pour cent, or Zone Blanche since a Hotspot Shield VPN connection bypasses restrictions by giving your device a France IP, even if you’re not actually located in France. This is because Hotspot Shield’s France VPN routes your data through its secure servers located in France.

By choosing the “France” server location, a France VPN lets you access streaming services such as:

How to prevent your ISP from throttling French content

Internet Service Providers have the ability to divert video streams onto internet slow lanes. This throttling forces your streaming apps to reduce the resolution of your video. The throttled stream can be so slow that your app will begin buffering, freezing your video in the final seconds of the championship match.

You can stop your ISP from throttling your content by downloading the best France VPN. The minute your streams reach our secure VPN servers in France, we apply military-grade encryption. Your ISP’s throttling systems can’t tell whether you’re streaming video or downloading an app so throttling never happens. Hotspot Shield VPN delivers the fastest streaming without buffering.

What is the fastest France VPN?

When we set out to create the fastest secure VPN on the market, we knew we couldn’t follow the crowd. Many other VPN providers all use the same open-source protocols. These were developed for business networks long before Netflix began streaming.

Rather than copying everyone else, Hotspot Shield VPN developed the Hydra VPN protocol. This proprietary technology provides the perfect balance of security and speed over a VPN connection. According to Ookla’s Speedtest, this makes Hotspot Shield the “world’s fastest VPN,” delivering speeds more than 2x faster than our nearest rival. Independent firms like AV-TEST also confirm that Hotspot Shield is the fastest VPN on the market.
