How to Get Around This
The good news is that if you’re accessing Netflix without being connected to a VPN, you can continue doing that even when you connect to IPVanish. This is made possible by the split tunneling feature that’s available on the FireOS and Android devices. You can use this feature to route your apps through the ISP and not the VPN.

Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users online activities. If found streaming or browsing content on your Fire TV Stick, mobile or PC, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. We strongly recommend you to get a good VPN and hide your identity so that your online experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
