Enjoy UHD Streaming Speeds on NHK

Imagine watching a Chimudondon episode on a Friday night — when the stream suddenly slows down to a crawl. This happens when your ISP is throttling your connection to preserve bandwidth across its own network. It usually occurs at peak hours, like weeknights, when everyone is streaming at the same time.

You deserve better, especially since you’re actually paying for fast internet. CyberGhost VPN is a fast VPN and has no bandwidth limits. It also prevents your ISP from seeing your online activity, so it can’t throttle your connection.

Watch as many NHK shows as you like!

Traveling abroad? Getting your Japanese drama fix on public Wi-Fi can expose your data to shady entities. Secure all your streaming devices with CyberGhost VPN.

Our encrypted tunnel blocks anyone from seeing what you’re doing online to keep your data private. We also have advanced VPN protocols (OpenVPN, IKEv2, and WireGuard®) for the best balance of speed and security.

The VPN apps are even equipped with Wi-Fi protection, which automatically launches CyberGhost VPN when an unsecured network is detected. Set it once and never be exposed online.
