    You can get apps2fire and send the app to your “TV box” from your phone, then install it from ES file explorer. you can do the same with any apk and any app in the google play store. it’s very easy. took me less than 5 minutes from the moment I heard of apps2fire until the time I had pureVPN working. on my other devices I had to set up open vpn manually to get everything to work.

      The stream issues seems to be the official tv-app not approving the connection with VPN. Today I tested with a different network app and the stream was ok for that network. So for sure the other two apps have some security-stuff that wont allow pureVPN to connect to them.

      Solution was: making my Phone as a wireless accesspoint to my laptop/desktop > connect it trough my phone > Open the new Client, voila!!!

      Now the new client works on all my android devices and PCs. If you guys here for PureVPN wants to take a look at the major networks with connection problems, tell me and Ill send you the info. Should be candy for your tec. dep. 🙂
