Netflix is one of the most popular videoservices online offering their users the chance to watch popular and hot TV shows and films online. For a set fee every month you can watch unlimited amount of programs and films. The only problem is when you go on a vacation and want to watch your home Netflix from abroad, then you will get some problem.
If you go abroad and want to watch your Netflix account from another nation then you will be surprised to notice that when you visit France you will not get access to US Netflix anymore, but French Netflix. You will in that way always get access to Netflix in the nation you are currently in. So, what can you do if you want to get access to for example US Netflix while in France? Or what about accessing US Netflix while in Asia? It is not longer enough to get a simple IP address in the nation you want to watch Netflix in as most VPN providers are blocked, but this is still how you can get access to US Netflix while abroad.
How to an IP address working for US Netflix
You might wonder how you can get a new IP address in another country that will work for Netflix? It isn’t as hard as it sounds. There are different ways in which you can fix it, but the easiest way is to use a VPN service that will connect you to a server in the given country and as soon as you are connected you will surf the net with an IP address in that given country. Now since March-April 2016 most IP addresses registered with VPN providers are blocked by Netflix, but there are some holes in the system, so if you want to watch US Netflix while abroad or Canadian Netflix while abroad, this is how it can be done!
Get yourself a subscription to ExpressVPN by pressing the button above. Download their VPN client and now the major part of the job is done. More important… if you want to watch US Netflix you need to connect to the following server:
- US Netflix: Washington DC 2 (there are more servers working, but this will for sure work)
- Canadian Netflix: Toronto 2 (there might be more servers working than this one)
