Stream the Stanley Cup Playoffs in HD

CyberGhost VPN allows you to stream every game in HD. Our VPN servers have high-speed capacity, including 10-Gbps servers in popular locations, so you can make the most of your high-speed internet and follow the puck with no buffering.

You also get unlimited bandwidth. Even if the game goes into double overtime, we’ll never cut you off or limit your bandwidth because you’re streaming too much.

Some ISPs throttle your internet speed when you connect to streaming services, causing pixelated or buffering videos that ruin your Stanley Cup viewing experience. CyberGhost VPN prevents this type of activity-based throttling from happening.

VPN encryption hides your online activity, so your ISP doesn’t know what sites or apps you’re visiting. If it doesn’t know you’re streaming the playoffs, it won’t selectively throttle your speeds.

Streaming the playoffs at a coffee shop, mall, or waiting for your flight at the airport is a great way to save mobile data, but you do so at your own risk. Unsecured public Wi-Fi networks can leave you vulnerable to cybercriminals attempting to steal your personal information.

CyberGhost protects your connection with strong encryption, keeping your streaming passwords, financial transactions, and other personal data safe from cybersnoops. Our app also has a kill switch to prevent data leaks in case there’s an unexpected VPN disconnection.
