You might know that Netflix is a wonderful service letting you watch films, series and all kinds of stuff legally on the Internet. For a little monthly fee this is possible, so as you understand, it would be great to be able to watch Netflix from Germany as well. And the good news is that it is possible, and you can watch and enjoy your own Netflix account in 10 minutes from now if you follow these instructions!

Watch Netflix in Germany

To watch Netflix in Germany you need to make the Netflix website believe that you are located in a nation where it is possible to subscribe to and enjoy the services of Netflix. Such a nation could be the UK, so if you could get an IP address in the UK that would solve the problem. Once you visit the Netflix site with a UK ip address you will see the following screen showing up.

If you would rather get a Netflix account in the USA that is also possible, but because of speeds it is better to watch films streamed on the Internet from a location as close to your home as possible, making the UK better than the USA.

How to watch Netflix in Germany with a VPN?

To be able to watch Netflix in Germany the easiest and best way is to use a VPN service. There are lots of VPN providers out there on the market, but not all of them have good products, speeds and service. We have tested quite a lot of these services and the best service on the market at the moment which provide good speeds for those in need of an IP address in the UK or in the USA is PureVPN and HideMyAss. Which service you decide to go for is mostly the same, but if we had to say something, it seems to us as if PureVPN has better speeds that HideMyAss in the UK.

Visit both sites, and subscribe to the product that seems the best to you. Once you have subscribed to one of the services just download their client, connect to a server in the UK (or in the USA), restart your browser and visit the Netflix site. You should then be able to make a subscription and start watching Netflix in Germany within seconds. Enjoy!
