How to watch my Netflix account abroad in 2024?

Netflix is one of the most popular video services online. It allows its users to watch popular and hot TV shows and films online. For a set fee every month, you can watch unlimited programs and movies. The only problem is when you go on vacation and want to watch your home Netflix region.

If you go abroad and want to watch your home Netflix account, 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, therefore, always get access to Netflix in the nation you are currently in. So, what can you do if you want to watch American Netflix while in France? Or what if you want to watch American Netflix in Asia? Changing your IP address using any random VPN provider is not enough. You will need to use a VPN that actually works with Netflix.

How to get an IP address working with 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 to 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 particular country. Since March-April 2016, most IP addresses registered with VPN providers have been blocked by Netflix, but there are some holes in the system, so if you want to watch US Netflix while abroad, this is how it can be done!

  3. Sue says:

    I am a Netflix subscriber in Australia and will be travelling to USA for 2 weeks. When there will my laptop automatically connect to Netflix USA without a problem? I do not want to access Netflix Australia when there.

    • Thomas Stein says:

      if you simply want to stream content on American Netflix while in the USA, then you need to do nothing. You can just open the Netflix application, and you will get access to American Netflix content. Whenever you travel back home to Australia, you will once again get access to the Australian Netflix content. But, if you fall in love with the content on American Netflix and want to watch it even more, even when you go home to Australia, then you can follow the instructions above to stream American Netflix in Australia. Hope you will have a brilliant stay in the United States!

    We will be travelling from Canada to Portugal for 4 months and would like to watch Netflix Canada while in Portugal. I read above that my Chromecast is not ideal for this so I will plug in with HDMI .
    My question is the following: I have purchased the services of wireless provider in Portugal Wifi Mifi Hotspot Rental for the duration. Do you think I will have a problem using StrongVPN or such ?

    • Thomas Stein says:

      Hello Filomene,
      thank you for the question. It shouldn work perfectly with the HDMI and running VPN on your computer! As long as the Wifi Hotspot Rental doesn’t block VPNs in any way (which they normally dont), this will work perfectly! Good luck. If you have any trouble later, just write again!

  5. Feedback guy says:

    Just wanted to give some feedback on the article. I wanted access to American Netflix, and for that reason I signed up with ExpressVPN. I didn’t get it to work at once, but then I got help from their support and found a server that worked, and since then I have been able to stream American Netflix with no trouble. I am watching Moana on Netflix right now…

  6. Ruth C Wallace says:

    Hi I’m not a Netflix subscriber, but I’m going to Turkey in January ’18 for a relaxing holiday with hubbie and plan to subscribe to Netflix for the duration, probably on their trial free pass. Do you think this will still work? Or should i pay first then try it? I’m normally based in UK

    • Thomas Stein says:

      you can easily sign up for Netflix when in Turkey. You will get access to all content available on Turkish Netflix while in Turkey. There are quite a lot of differences between Netflix in Turkey and in the UK, so you might want to follow the instructions here to get access to American or UK Netflix later, but at first, this is not needed!

  7. Fiona says:

    I watched The Circle on UK Netflix with IPVanish (followed your instructions), didn’t really enjoy the movie, but still managed to watch it, and now I will watch Suits season 7 on Netflix as well (since it is available on UK Netflix). Thanks for the help!

  8. James says:

    I would like to stream US Netflix on my Chromecast (of course while abroad), is that possible? How can that be done using a VPN like ExpressVPN?

    • Thomas Stein says:

      It is quite complicated to stream US Netflix on a Chromecast. The reason is that that Chromecast gets its Internet connection from the router directly, and thus you need to setup your router directly to work with ExpressVPN. It can be done, but it is quite complicated. I suggest that you just ask the ExpressVPN customer service and they will help you out. Easier ways to make this work might be using a computer and connecting it to your TV using an HDMI cable. In that way it will work perfectly, and you can stream US Netflix on your TV using ExpressVPN right away!

  9. Moana! says:

    Just started the ExpressVPN application, connected to their Washington DC 2 server, and now I am streaming Moana on US Netflix. I had my doubts if this would really work, but it does. Thanks Thomas!

  10. Georg says:

    Hey there Thomas,
    will this work on an Android device as well? Are you sure that this works, because I have seen lots of Twitter posts saying that all VPN’s are blocked by Netflix and that no services are working anymore…

    • Thomas Stein says:

      this will work on Android and iOS systems as well. I have tested it myself and it works. I every day see posts on Twitter myself from people writing about how their VPN no longer works with Netflix, or how people ask for help on how to stream Netflix with a VPN, but the methods here work and you can stream Netflix with them from abroad easily! Good luck. If you have further questions, just write a comment!

  11. Tolete says:

    Canadian here going to spend a few months in central Europe, wanting to access my account from there. If i understood correctly, once there I access and set up any of the two VPNs mentioned here and that’s it?

    • Thomas Stein says:

      Yes, once there you sign up for StrongVPN (hopefully they will still work for this purpose, but check back here first), and then you connect to a Canadian server to stream Canadian Netflix and a US server in order to stream US Netflix!

  12. Skitter says:

    Can I just clarify, can you set up your VPN account in UK in advance of going to France or should it be done when you are over there. Also, is there any difference if you are on an iPad?

    • Thomas Stein says:

      there is no difference if you are using an iPad, a mobile device (iOS or Android) or a Mac or a Windows computer. It is working in the same way, and it is enough to arrange with the VPN subscription once you are in France, but you can of course arrange it beforehand as well, but it is not needed!

  13. Vilma gonzales says:

    I am a netflix subscriber in the uk at the moment but going back to my country this coming next week i have actually already cancelled my Netflix but if i can watch it in my country i would like to contine my subscription kindly help me how do i do that? Last december i was in the philippines tried to connect my failed.

    • Thomas Stein says:

      Hello! If you visit the Netflix website you can easily reactivate your Netflix account again, and then as you go back to the Philippines you can use a VPN like HIdeMyAss or PureVPN to get yourself a UK IP address, and then you will be able to watch Netflix also back home!

  14. Tormod says:

    I have tried to watch Netflix from abroad using both HideMyAss and PureVPN and I must say that PureVPN has better speeds in general than HideMyAss. In addition I have found that, even though they have fever servers, those few servers normally has a bit better speeds, which means that it is a greater chance to get a good hit when using PureVPN. What is better with HideMyAss than with PureVPN, is that HideMyAss has a thirty day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied, while PureVPN only has a three day money back guarantee. But, because of the guarantees, just go for the service that seems the best to you and with the best prices. Do not forget that HideMyAss registrations happens a bit faster, so if you are in a hurry and want to watch Netflix in only a few minutes from now, choose HideMyAss, because with PureVPN it often takes about 1 hour before you receive your username and password), which again means that you have to wait until then before you can watch your Netflix account from wherever you are in the world.

      • Thomas Stein says:

        you can watch Netflix in Greece as well, but you will only get access to the content available on Greek Netflix. So, if you want to watch American Netflix in Greece, you better use the instructions found in this article. It might be that you will get it to work with PureVPN as well, but I can not guarantee that.
