We need to go many years back in time to get to the year in which the first The Lord of the Rings movie directed by Peter Jackson was released. It immediately became a giant success and so did the other movies in the trilogy. Even though they are getting old, they are still extremely popular. Why can’t you find The Lord of the Rings on Netflix? Is it possible to stream the trilogy on Netflix? How and where? If you read this article and follow the instructions, you can soon watch all three The Lord of the Rings movies on Netflix.
I have got to admit that I have never read The Lord of the Rings. I have read The Hobbit, but I never had the courage to get started with The Lord of the Rings. Maybe that was a big mistake, but I guess I still have time to get started. What I do know, however, is that I got really sucked into the story as I watched the movies. I didn’t expect it to happen, but the first movie really made an impression on me. The second was good as well, but I didn’t like it as much as the first and the final.
No matter what, you should definitely watch the movies, and you can stream all of them on Netflix right now. How can it be done? Follow these instructions and you can soon watch Gollum, Aragorn, Gandalf, Frodo, Bilbo, Sam, Boromir, Elrond, Arwen, Sauron, and the others on Netflix.
Simple instructions on how to watch The Lord of the Rings on Netflix.
1) You need a Netflix subscription.
The most important is that you need a subscription to Netflix. It doesn’t matter where you live, just as long as you have a valid subscription to Netflix at the moment. Are you ready to continue to the next step?
2) You need access to Belgian or Turkish Netflix.
Oops, that sounds harder at once, doesn’t it? You might be scared by this information, but I am about to share some knowledge with you that will solve the problem. If you use the VPN services of ExpressVPN, you can easily solve the problem. It is crucial that you use ExpressVPN, as all other VPNs are blocked by Netflix in Turkey and Belgium (with one exception that I will mention later).
ExpressVPN is a fantastic VPN for online protection, encryption, and for accessing geo-blocked content. It can be used on all platforms, and you can use one subscription on five devices at the same time. Not only will it protect you, it will also help you watch content on Netflix in the USA, the Netherlands, Canada, Germany, France, Belgium, Japan, India, Australia, and Turkey.
How does this actually work? (not necessary reading, but very interesting)
A VPN is encrypting your online activities, meaning that they are hidden from people spying on your activities. All your traffic is sent through a VPN tunnel between your device and the VPN server that you connect to. As you connect to a VPN server in Turkey and visit www.netflix.com, all your traffic will seem to originate from the VPN server in Turkey (and not your actual location). It is because of this that VPNs can be used to bypass geo-blocks.
Netflix knows about the servers of most VPN providers and as a result, they block the IP addresses they use. As a result, you will not see the actual content on Turkish Netflix, even though you use the IP addresses provided by VPN providers with servers in Turkey. That is why it is crucial to use ExpressVPN.
Are you ready to give it a try? Click the ExpressVPN button below and follow these steps.
- Go to the ExpressVPN website and purchase a subscription. You will get three months for free if you click the button below and purchase a 12-months plan. No matter which package you buy, you will always be protected by their 30-day refund policy.
- Download the ExpressVPN application and install it on your phone, tablet, computer, and TV.
- Launch the application and connect to a server in Turkey or in Belgium. If your Netflix account is registered in the EU, it is very important that you connect to the Turkish server and not the Belgian server. You can read more about that in this article.
- Visit the Netflix website or restart the Netflix application on your device. You can now see the content on Turkish Netflix (or Belgian Netflix) and you can stream all three The Lord of the Rings movies.
It isn’t complicated at all. In the same way, you can connect to ExpressVPN servers in many other countries and watch the local Netflix content in those countries. The service can also be used to watch Champions League football online, and so much more.
If you use a VPN blocked by Netflix, or simply live somewhere else, you will not find The Lord of the Rings on Netflix (like in the screenshot above).
Is there a second VPN I can use besides ExpressVPN?
There is one other VPN that I know of that can be used to watch Turkish Netflix (but it cannot be used with Belgian Netflix). The name of that VPN is Surfshark and it is very good as well, and much cheaper than ExpressVPN. It is great for streaming in general, so feel free to try it instead of ExpressVPN if you’d rather subscribe to a cheaper VPN.
Surfshark works in the same way as ExpressVPN, so to stream the Lord of the Rings on Netflix with Surfshark, do the following.
- Purchase a VPN subscription to Surfshark.
- Download and install the VPN application on the devices that you use for Netflix streaming.
- Launch the application and connect to a server in Turkey.
- Run the Netflix application on your device or visit the Netflix website.
- You can now watch The Lord of the Rings on Netflix.
Below you can see three screenshots I just made watching The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King on Netflix.
Are you ready to try it yourself? It isn’t complicated. You should also know that both Surfshark and ExpressVPN have full refund policies valid for thirty days. If you do not like the service, you can cancel your subscription and ask for your money in return for thirty days. That is actually extremely nice, and it gives an additional layer of security. Both services have live support available on their websites, meaning that you can get help 24/7 if you are stuck somewhere.
