How to Watch Foreign Netflix via VPN
Many VPN providers offer guides on how to unblock Netflix content. However, you can use this general guide for all VPNs.
You can use VPNs for Netflix and other streaming services whether you are abroad and want to stream the same way you do in the comfort of your home or watch restricted content for different geographic locations.
VPN for Netflix
If you do not already have a VPN, choose one that offers an easy way to unblock Netflix. For unblocking Netflix, paid VPNs are the way to go, as you need a VPN with no limit and enough speed for streaming. Only paid VPNs offer that.
Netflix tries to prevent VPN access to streaming content by logging the IP addresses of VPN services and not allowing access to content for other locations. However, VPN providers get around this by various measures, such as changing IP addresses frequently.
After you have chosen a VPN for Netflix, we recommend trying to unblock Netflix during your trial period so you can choose another provider and get a refund if necessary.
Using a VPN for Netflix
If you already have a VPN provider selected, accessing Netflix should already be easy. First, you install the VPN provider’s app on your device. Depending on your VPN provider, you may also install the app on smart TVs, Fire TVs, Chromecast, and more.
In the VPN app, choose the server and country through which you want to connect to Netflix to access the content on offer. Each VPN may have it a little differently, with some having selected servers specifically for connecting to Netflix. Other VPNs offer a list of servers that work with Netflix anytime. Try the others provided if you cannot connect to Netflix through your chosen server. Alternatively, you can check the provider’s site to see if they offer further instructions, or you can contact support.
You can find the most widely used Netflix library in the United States, which offers nearly 6,000 titles and grows daily. The second most widely used library is in Japan, with over 5,500 titles. Most of these are titles that have rights exclusive to that country or are country-specific content. With a VPN, you can make the most of Netflix.
Frequently Asked Questions
At the end of this guide, we will answer the most common questions about watching Netflix with a VPN.
Do I have to pay for Netflix with a VPN?
Using a VPN to access Netflix does not change the fact that you still must pay for your Netflix subscription in your location.
Is it legal to watch Netflix with a VPN?
VPNs are legal in most countries around the world. So if you are not in a country that bans VPNs, then you are not breaking the law. Plus, when you use a good VPN, you cannot even detect that you are using a virtual network.
Netflix’s rules state that as a user, you can only watch content intended for your location. Not to worry, though – Netflix is not known to have canceled someone’s account because of a VPN. After all, it would stand against itself if it blocked paying users.
