How to Enable VPN on a PlayStation
Playstation is a great device when it comes to streaming movies and TV shows via Netflix. However, Playstation devices do not have VPN clients. So if you want to unblock or change your Netflix region using a VPN service, you need to indirectly enable VPN on your Playstation. This can be done in two ways. You can set up a VPN on your router or enable Network sharing on your computer. After you implement either method, you need to connect your PS5 or PS4 to the VPN-enabled device. Thus, your PS will share the same VPN connection. As a result, you can change your virtual country and consequently watch US Netflix or other American channels on your Playstation gaming console. In this article, you will find info and instruction on how to enable VPN on a PS5, PS4, or PS3.

DNS – THE ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION.
Some people have trouble setting up their router and can’t quite get network sharing right. Smart DNS works perfectly fine on all Playstation devices. If you are one of those who can’t get their head around enabling VPN on PS, you might give DNS codes a try.
