How to Watch Netflix Outside of the US?

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

If you’re traveling or living outside of the United States you can still enjoy Netflix! We’re not just talking about recently added locations such as Canada or Latin America. Within the past 5 years or so, Netflix has transformed from a mail-order DVD service into the world’s largest distributor of online movie streaming. With broadband connections that are improving in speed, high quality HD content can be delivered via streaming on the internet.

If you’re one of the many expatriates living overseas and can’t do without your Netflix fix, help is on the way! By using a virtual private network (VPN), you can unlock the country restrictions by tricking you internet service provider to think that you are in a US location. For example, you are traveling in Europe or Asia and Netflix is currently unavailable in those regions. You still want to take advantage of watching movies streamed online. It’s really easy and all you need to do is turn on your VPN service and select a region from the USA or Canada. Your IP will now be associated with a North America region, and all geographical restrictions will be released. As long as you have a valid Netflix account, you will enjoy your full range of services. Yes, it is that simple!

To recap the steps to watch Netflix outside of the US:

1. Sign up for a Netflix account (if you don’t have a Netflix account, you cannot watch content for the service).

2. Install a VPN service on your computer or router. There are many services to choose from, and installation is quick and simple.

3. Turn on the VPN Service.

4. Go to Netflix.com and start watching via real-time streaming!
