Attention: Protect Your Privacy Online

Please remember that streaming certain video content may be illegal in your country. Protecting your privacy online is becoming more and more important. We suggest you to use a VPN. A VPN encrypts your traffic and stops your provider and other authorities from seeing what you do on the internet.

With a VPN you are also able to change your public IP address to gain access to services which may not be available in your location.

We recommend CyberGhost, a VPN service with the highest security standards, fast download speeds for streaming, 9200 servers located in over 100 countries and the most value for your money.

      • The reason may be an addon which does not provide IMDb IDs for the video content you select. As far as we know OpenSubtitles is using IMDb IDs but we are not 100% sure if disabling it in the a4kSubtitles settings fixes the issue for you. But again: Usually the most common video addons do provide IMDb IDs.
