It’s easy to use ExpressVPN in Greece for secure browsing, streaming, and torrenting.
You can use the ExpressVPN app to connect to your preferred server to access geo-blocked content in Greece or secure your internet activity over public Wi-Fi.
I’ve tested ExpressVPN Greece servers and some others to see which server was the best in the Hellenic Republic. Find out how to get the most out of ExpressVPN in Greece in this guide!
How to Use ExpressVPN on Desktop & Mobile in Greece?
- Go to the hamburger menu and click “Options.” Then go to Protocol and make sure that “Automatic” is toggled on.
- Return to the main screen and click the three dots to choose your preferred server. For instance, if you’re traveling to Kos from the UK and want to check your Scottish Widows account, choose a UK ExpressVPN server.
- Click the power button and wait for ExpressVPN to connect.
- That’s it! You can stream your favorite iPlayer shows, read “The Daily Express,” or unblock other geo-restricted content from Greece.
How to Use ExpressVPN on Smart TV & Gaming Consoles in Greece?
You can use ExpressVPN on your Smart TV, PS4, and Xbox in Greece through its SmartDNS MediaStreamer feature, a router compatible with ExpressVPN, or an ExpressVPN app.
Not all routers available in Greece are compatible with ExpessVPN, however.
The compatible ones include Netgear R6700, Asus RT-AC56, and Linksys EA6200.
If yours can install the VPN app, follow the video guide below:
Once installed, connect your gaming console/smart TV to the router network to enjoy a secure connection and bypass geo-restrictions from Greece.
Alternatively, you can install ExpressVPN on Android TVs directly since the TV can use the Android app variant.
But if you don’t have an Android TV or a VPN-compatible router, ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer is another setup option. It may lack the VPN’s encryption and be partial to unblocking US/UK content alone, but it offers fast streaming speeds.
Here’s how to activate MediaStreamer on your smart TV/console in Greece:
- Toggle “Automatically register my IP address,” then click “Register my IP address.”
- To get the SmartDNS MediaStreamer address, go to the ExpressVPN setup page. On the right-hand side, you’ll see two MediaStreamer IP addresses.
- Record these addresses and watch the video below to set up ExpressVPN on your Smart TV. You can also change the DNS settings on your gaming console:
- That’s it! Your device now has access to MediaStreamer, and you can play “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” to your heart’s content!
How to Get a Greek IP Address With ExpressVPN?
If you’re traveling outside Greece and want to watch your favorite Alpha TV shows like Asteras Rahoulas, ExpressVPN can help you with a Greek IP address.
Here’s what you must do:
- Get an ExpressVPN subscription and download ExpressVPN on your device.
- Log in and click on the three dots in the ExpressVPN app.
- Scroll to “Greece” or search for the location. Then, click on it.
- Click the power button to connect to the Hellenic server.
- Go to IPLeak.net to verify your Greek IP address.
- That’s it! If you’re taking a ferry from Rhodes to Marmaris for a holiday, you can use ExpressVPN’s Greek IP to watch SportPlus TV in Turkey.
Which Is the Best ExpressVPN Server to Use in Greece?
If you want to watch American Netflix shows like NCIS in Greece, the best ExpressVPN server is New Jersey 1. For torrenting, the best server is the Greek one.
However, you can connect to any of ExpressVPN’s 3000+ servers to enjoy public Wi-Fi security at Viva Beer House and Klio Cruise Bar or simply get privacy from your Greek ISP.
The fastest ExpressVPN servers in Greece are the local Greek server and the Italian server. I found that out by conducting speed tests on several ExpressVPN servers, and here’s what I found:
|Greece (Thessaloniki)||2 Mbps drop|
|Italy (Naples)||1 Mbps increase|
|USA (New Jersey)||8 Mbps drop|
The Italian server even gave me a speed increase, most likely by circumventing the throttling imposed by Vola.
Streaming & Torrenting Tests
ExpressVPN works in Greece with streaming services. For instance, I could watch “NCIS” from Athens with ExpressVPN’s NJ server.
For torrenting tests, I used the Greek ExpressVPN server with the automatic protocol selection enabled. Using qBitTorrent, I downloaded the 18GB “Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor” in 1.5 hours, at an average download speed of 3.2 MiB/second.
