Your guide to watching Netflix abroad

Netflix is unavailable in my nation. How can I get myself an account?

If you live in a nation with no Netflix support you will get a sad message telling you that Netflix is not available in your area yet. That can be frustrating, especially knowing that they offer tons of amazing films and programs for those with a running subscription. The subscription in itself is very cheap, at least considering the amount of quality films and programs you can watch with a subscription, but to be able to sign up you need to be located in one of the areas with a working Netflix program.

Watch Netflix from abroadTherefore to be able to watch Netflix from abroad, in one of the nations in which Netflix does not exist, you need to get an IP address in the nation you desire, and once you have that, your browser and the websites you visit will believe that you actually reside in that nation, and with that on their mind, you will no longer get the error message visit the Netflix site, but you will get a message that you should sign up for a 1-month free trial period instead. Once signed up you can start having fun at once and watch whatever content you want to available on Netflix.

To get this working you need a subscription to PureVPN, a brilliant VPN provider with servers in more than 70 nations in the world. Get a subscription, download their program to your Windows computer, to your tablet, to your mobile device or to your iOS system and connect to a server in for example the United States and you will be able to create your Netflix account and start watching US Netflix in a few minutes.

Visit the PureVPN website(great discounts available right now)

That is how easy it is to create a Netflix account from all across the world, and do not forget that a Netflix account can be used across all regions, meaning that with this subscription you can also watch UK Netflix, German Netflix and in all other regions. You do not need multiple Netflix accounts, all you need is to connect to a PureVPN server in the requested nation.

Please read the instructions at the top of the article as Netflix currently is blocking the services of PureVPN.

I have a Netflix account, but can not watch my home Netflix region from abroad!

If you already have a Netflix account in for example USA and you would like to continue watching on of your favorite TV series or maybe a new film then you will need a PureVPN subscription to solve your problem. This is a VPN provider based in England and with servers all across the world. Visit their website and sign up for their services and download their PureVPN program. Once you have this on your tablet, phone or computer connect to a server in the nation in which you have your Netflix account and you can feel like at home and watch Netflix as you would do at home, even if you are somewhere completely different in the world.Visit the PureVPN website(great discounts available right now)

You can also use your PureVPN subscription to jump between Netflix regions, meaning that even if you have your Netflix account registered in the USA, you can just connect to a PureVPN server in England for example, and as you visit again you will access all films, TV series and documentaries available in English Netflix. If you connect to a PureVPN server in Canada you will thus gain access to Canadian Netflix.

If you want to watch Netflix in a Scandinavian country like Norway, Sweden, Denmark or Finland this works in the same way, just connect to a PureVPN server in your country and you will be ready to watch “home” Netflix at once.

PureVPN also has a seven day full refund policy, so if you are not satisfied with the way it works, simply ask them to give you your money back!

I would to watch Netflix in more than one region with one subscription!

Have you just tuned in to to watch some film only to discover that it is not available in the nation you are currently in? Or have you read an article in my blog about a film lately added to US Netflix, UK Netflix or maybe Canadian Netflix that you would like to watch, but your problem is that you are located in Spain with only Spanish Netflix content available? Would you like to watch content in different Netflix regions?

To watch Netflix in more than one region all you need is one single Netflix subscription in whatever country Netflix exist. In other words, ONE Netflix subscription is enough. In addition you will need  a PureVPN subscription.Visit PureVPN website(and enjoy Netflix in different regions)

When you have your PureVPN subscription and the PureVPN client on your device you just connect to a server in the PureVPN program in the nation in which you want to watch Netflix. Let us say that you have read in this blog about a great film that was recently made available in Canadian Netflix. Now what you do is that you connect to a PureVPN server in Canada and once connected you visit and you are now ready to watch Canadian Netflix. Later you read an article about a great film available on German Netflix and to watch it you connect to a PureVPN server in Germany, and now you are ready to watch German Netflix.

In this way you can jump between the different Netflix regions with one single Netflix subscription and with one single PureVPN subscription. Isn’t that brilliant? Do not forget to bookmark this page and to return to receive news about newly added films and TV series so that you will not miss out on any good stuff!

    Unfortunately even the unlocater service is not working anymore. Netflix is going mental about proxy at the moment

    1. Christine Wilson Post author

      I have noticed… I will update the article within shortly with some even more updated information! And Unlocator is also working on solving the issues!

    2. Christine Wilson Post author

      Just wanted to say that Unlocator is updating servers all the time, so you should try again, because I believe they are working in most Netflix regions again! 🙂

    Please, no need to publish my previous comment. I have been able to handle the issue with PureVPN

    1. Christine Wilson Post author

      Glad you were able to arrange it:) Have you found a way to watch Netflix in El Salvador, or are you still looking?

  3. TPayne

    The thing that really sucks. I travel and I can’t even watch the catalog of shows available in the country I am in. Two hotels, my work and my apartment. I can’t stream netflix because they say the ISP is using a VPN. They went a step too far in the madness. So, basically can’t watch from a hotel anymore… 🙁

    So I’m confused…it says it serves France, so if I am going to France, can I get to my US based Netflix account or do I still need the PureBPN app?

    1. Christine Wilson Post author

      If you want to watch in France I recommend that you try Unlocator first and setup their DNS service and set your Netflix region to France. Or if you are in France use Unlocator and set the Netflix region to USA (Usa 1, Usa 2) and you will be able to watch US Netflix in France 🙂

    The madness is not from Netflix, but from big movie business; they want to protect their stupid way to distribute movies around the world. As always, it is only a way to squeeze as much money as possible from the public.

    However, Netflix, as a streaming service is beyond and ahead of regions and SHOULD be trying to protect the people who send them their moneys every single month to pay for the streaming services.

    There is no sustainable reason why Person ABC in the USA should have a “right” to watch Movie MNL before Person XYZ has the same right in Country KBC. All the people in the world who pay the fees they are requested to pay should have the same rights concerning the contents to watch.

    Netflix is being pressured from the Big Movie Business for the Monopoly Money Sqeezing Game. This should end soon, but only if and International Equal Rights Commission is presented, understood and respected as deserved.

    Running into the same problem – have a NL subscription, but traveling outside the NL, I can’t access the NL content (with NL subtitling, etc) anymore.
    Talking to Netflix support, this they claim this is done because it’s a legal issue, however this is TOTALLY INCORRECT. As a NL citizen, with a NL account, I have a legal right to see NL content, even if I am in a different country. (This comparable with television content, e.g Canaldigital, where you can take your (satellite) subscription and travel within Europe on holidays, etc).
    Can understand that there are commercial reasons to release content per region/country, however what is currently happening is that Netflix denies a person access to it’s own countries content, based on the location that the person is currently at.

    This is specifically Netflix madness ..

  7. Mike

    How do these regional restrictions apply if I use satellite internet?

  8. Jeremiah

    Even after setting up DNS with Unlocator, I still cannot watch my US English Netflix in Spain. This is crap!

    1. Christine Wilson Post author

      It seems as if it is hard to get this working with Unlocator now as well. But, please follow what’s written on our front page as we constantly update it with information on how you can watch Netflix in different regions! Unlocator is not a good option at the moment, but there are other options!


    I would like to have access to Get access to Netflix Fr (French Netflix). Do you know how I can do that?
