I would like to watch American Netflix. I have a Netflix subscription in Norway, but I don’t think I can watch American Netflix with this. Will I be able to watch American Netflix if I purchase a Netflix subscription in the United States? How does this work?
I recently saw a very similar question asked by someone on Reddit. He said that the had traveled a lot within the EU, and he always saw the content available on Netflix in his own country. Based on that experience, he thought that buying a Netflix subscription in the United States would give him permanent access to the content on Netflix in the United States. But, that isn’t actually how it works!
The Netflix principle
One Netflix subscription is all you need. You will always have access to Netflix as long as you have an active Netflix subscription. The Netflix principle is that you will always watch the content available on Netflix in the country you visit. It doesn’t matter where you live. If you have a Netflix account registered in the United States, you will only see the content on Netflix in the United States if you are in the United States.
But, why did I see the content on Norwegian Netflix when in Spain?
There are some regulations in the European Union that make things behave differently. If your Netflix account is registered in an EEA or an EU country, you will see the content of the country you are registered in. It doesn’t matter if you are in a different country within the EU or the EEA… you will always see the content of your home country. That is because of the EU regulations. But, if you leave Europe, and travel to the United States, you will see the content on Netflix in the United States. If you visit Canada, you will see the content on Canadian Netflix.
What do you need to watch American Netflix?
You do not need a Netflix account registered in the United States. But, you will need a VPN that will give you an American IP address. This can be done if you purchase a VPN subscription to either ExpressVPN or to NordVPN. Click the links below to visit their websites.
A VPN will help you change your IP address. When you connect to a VPN server in the United States, Netflix will believe that you are in the United States. As a result, you will see the content available on Netflix in the United States.
