Watch Netflix from Abroad

Disclaimer: This site is made for those who want to find out how to watch their Netflix account from abroad, and for those who want to access a different Netflix region than the one they are currently in. The site itself has nothing to do with Netflix.com, and if you want to watch movies on Netflix.com, visit the Netflix website.

Netflix is the number one video service available online and it is getting more and more popular every single day. It spreads rapidly and since January 2016 it is present in almost 200 nations.  I have created this page to help you so that you can watch Netflix wherever you are located in the world and with Netflix being present almost anywhere I do my best to tell you how to jump between Netflix regions to that you can watch your favorite Netflix region from all across the world.

Get access to US and UK Netflix from abroad

Are you an American abroad who want to watch American Netflix (US Netflix) while in Europe? Or maybe you are a European who want access to the giant library of movies and TV series available in the United States? Or are you in the USA and want to access UK Netflix? The variations are many, but if this is you, then it you can easily get access to US Netflix from abroad and UK Netflix from abroad.

The solution to this is ExpressVPN. It has worked with these regions for years, and it still does, even though Netflix tries to block as many VPN providers as possible.

Visit ExpressVPN(start watching Netflix right away)

ExpressVPN has a thirty day full refund policy, and they give you best value for your money if you sign up for 12 months.  In fact, now they give you three months extra for free if you sign up for 12 months, so check it out and sign up. And since they work with both US and UK Netflix, this should give you great value for your money.

How to watch US and UK Netflix with ExpressVPN

  • Click the button above and sign up for their services.
  • Download the ExpressVPN application to your computer, to your tablet or to your cell phone.
  • Start the application and connect to a server in the United States (if you want to watch US Netflix).
  • Once you are connected restart the Netflix application on your tablet or cellphone, or restart your browser on your computer and visit Netflix.com again.
  • You will now have access to the US Netflix library and you can enjoy watching all the content you want right away. For access to UK Netflix, follow the same instructions, but connect to a server in the UK.
  • If you get any problem along the way, the ExpressVPN customer service is very quick to help you out!

Get access to Canadian, Dutch and German Netflix from abroad

Would you like to access Canadian, Dutch or maybe German Netflix instead? The Canadian Netflix region is by far the best for those who want to watch the newest Hollywood movies, while the Dutch and German Netflix regions give you access to great content available in few other regions. To access these Netflix regions ExpressVPN is no longer the answer, but instead we recommend that you use StrongVPN.

Visit StrongVPN(and watch Netflix from abroad)

StrongVPN has a five day money back guarantee, and also a great customer service, so there is no risk involved in trying their services. To get access to Canadian, Dutch or the German Netflix using StrongVPN, follow the instructions from above (using ExpressVPN), but connect to a StrongVPN server in either Germany, the Netherlands or in Canada.

More instructions on how to watch Netflix from abroad

I have earlier written lots of articles on how you can access the different Netflix regions from abroad. For even more detailed information, click the articles beneath to read more on how you can access the different Netflix regions around the globe.

Can’t find your region here? Write a comment and tell me which region you are interested in and I will put up an article as soon as possible with information on how to watch it from outside that actual nation.

Using a VPN to watch Netflix

In the Netflix Terms of Use the use of VPN’s are not mentioned, but the following is written:

You may view a movie or TV show through the Netflix service only in  geographic locations where we offer our service and have licensed such  movie or TV show.  The content that may be available to watch will vary  by geographic location.  Netflix will use technologies to verify your  geographic location.

It can therefore be said that using a VPN to watch Netflix is breaking the Terms of Use. The methods described here at this site for changing your Netflix region might therefore violate the Terms of Use and I take no responsibility for any action Netflix might take in case you should do so. It should also be mentioned that there has never been taken any action against any Netflix user for using a VPN, except from the fact that they might get a proxy error/VPN warning.

About Netflix

The company Netflix was founded in 1997 and the headquarters can be found in Los Gatos in California. What started small has enjoyed an enormous growth, and at the time writing this Netflix has more than 2000 employees and there are more than 60 million subscribers worldwide.

      Good morning TJ,

      there are loads of websites out there with information on how to stream Netflix and get access to other Netflix regions that are completely out of date, so your question is 100% valid. Luckily this site is not like those, as I continuously test the methods described and also use them myself. You can therefore try them and feel safe, as these methods will work and help you get access to other Netflix regions easily.

          2. Christine Wilson Post author

            You should probably go for a solution in which you use a VPN to access US Netflix. That should still work and thus you can continue watching whatever you started watching in UAE!

      You can use your Netflix account in Croatia, but you will get access to Croatian Netflix while in Croatia. That means you will not see the same material available as you do when you visit Netflix.com in the States, in the UK or wherever you live. To get access to your original Netflix region follow the instructions on how to get access to the different Netflix regions.

    I purchased Netflix from the US and had to subscribe Hotspot in order for to watch Netflix movies in the Philippines. The first few months it went well and I gave up watching due to the fact that I can no longer watched Netflix movies. Every now and then I’d try but it keeps giving me “whoops…and an error code. Now I’m getting streaming and something to do with “blocker”. I’m not a computer literate.
    How can I get to use what I’ve paid for, for a year, when it keeps blocking me?

    Reply
    1. Christine Wilson Post author

      Unfortunately there is no guarantee that a VPN provider and its services will last for an unlimited amount of time, so there is little that can be done. You could ask their customer service, but if you use Hotspot Shield then you can still use that to access some other Netflix regions as well.

      You do not need an extra Netflix subscription in order to watch Netflix in France, but you can use your current subscription. But, as you visit Netflix while in France you will get access to French Netflix and not Irish Netflix.

    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 ..

  30. Franz J Fortuny

    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.

      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 🙂
