Once again I got to say – The Netflix VPN block stinks!

I am currently traveling and enjoying a summer holiday in the beautiful city of Izola in Slovenia. It is amazing! But, when you live somewhere else, using the WiFi of someone you do not know anything about, it feels good to use a VPN connection, in order to keep your confidential information your own.

That is especially important when you check private emails, visit cryptocurrency exchanges to see the status of some trades you are working with, as you write articles and comment on stuff on Steemit, and similar activities. In fact, not using a VPN would be pure stupidity. So here I am, writing articles, checking my email, and I just visited Bibox to check some cryptocurrency trades. Currently, I am logged in using the VPN services of HideMyAss, but it could just as well have been any other VPN service.

So, what’s the problem with the VPN?

After writing some emails and fixing some trades, I visited Netflix.com to find a great movie to watch. My decision fell on Kingsman: The Secret Service, and I pressed play.

my choice on netflix

I didn’t have to wait for a long time, because a few seconds later I got error message M7111-1331-5059. I told me that something went wrong, and I need to check if I am using an unblocker or a proxy.

The reality is, I am using a VPN service (which could be called an unblocker), so this is causing the trouble. But, it feels terrible that I have to jeopardize my own security and confidential information in order to watch some stuff on Netflix. To be honest, it feels better to pay for the same content on another platform (for example Google Play), than to risk losing my personal passwords or values to some persons exploiting WiFi networks like the one I am using currently.

Is there a solution to this problem?

  • Netflix could stop blocking proxies and similar services, but that would give them greater trouble with the companies forcing them to do so. So, that isn’t very likely.
  • You could disconnect from your VPN service, in order to stream Netflix, while closing all other websites, and logging out from everywhere. But, it still doesn’t feel nice and completely safe.
  • Why not purchase the content from the Apple Store, from Google Play instead? If you buy it with your Google account it doesn’t matter where you are located in the world when you watch it!
  • Or you could consider using a VPN service that will let you watch Netflix still. It might not work with all regions, but you could use a VPN that works with Netflix in the United States, in the United Kingdom, Canada, and other nations? Read more about that here.

Is it possible to watch the World Cup 2018 on Netflix?

I am looking forward to the World Cup, but I am not sure how and where to watch it. Can I watch the World Cup 2018 on Netflix?

Is it possible to watch the World Cup 2018 on Netflix

Netflix is the home of fantastic movies and TV series, but it is not the home of live sports (yet)! I don’t know if they ever will be, but the answer to your question is a big NO. It is not possible to stream the World Cup 2018 on Netflix, meaning that you will have to look for another platform and for another way to stream the matches online.

The first match will be played on June 14th (only one match), but already on June 15th, there will be three different matches with Spain – Portugal as the big highlight.

Where can I watch the World Cup then?

But, if it isn’t possible to watch the World Cup on Netflix, where should I watch it then? There are lots of places to watch the entire World Cup and all the matches online. You can find a sweet mixture of methods in the following article in the IP Address Guide. There you can read about free TV channels broadcasting the event, and also pay-TV channels. The best way to stream the World Cup is probably on Fubo TV, but that is a pay channel. If you want to watch the event for free, all you need is a VPN that will give you access to BBC and ITV in the UK, and you are ready to watch the entire World Cup for free on UK TV. Doesn’t that sound cool? You can read more on how to watch ITV from abroad and BBC from abroad in the linked article.

What to watch on Netflix between the matches?

I wrote about a movie named The Book of Henry in the HBO Now blog a while back. I have watched it since then, and it was a quite interesting movie. I did a quick search yesterday to see if the movie can be found in any Netflix region, but so far it cannot be found anywhere, so I guess we will have to wait.

But, if you want some great action and lots of humor, you should watch Thor: Ragnarok on Netflix in between the FIFA World Cup matches. You can watch it both on American and Canadian Netflix, so get started… it is a big treat!

 

What will happen if five people want to stream simultaneously with the same Netflix subscription for four screens?

I have a Netflix subscription that is valid for use at 4 different screens at the same time. What will happen at the moment a fifth person tries to use the same subscription while four other people use it?

If you visit Netflix and try to stream something as person number five, you might be afraid that you will “throw out” an already active user as you log on. If you live in a house with 5 people, and you log on to Netflix as person number five, and as a consequence, your teenage daughter was suddenly thrown out of Netflix (as she watched The Crown), you know there will be trouble and heavy discussion around the table later that day. But, is that what will happen if you try to stream something as guy number five on a Netflix subscription valid for four screens? NO!

stream netflix at the same time

What will happen when too many people use a Netflix subscription?

It doesn’t matter if you have a Netflix subscription valid for one screen, two screens of four screens. At the moment too many people try to use it, the new users will simply be stopped and not be able to stream. The result is, therefore, that you will not interrupt or destroy the streaming experience for those already watching, as you will not be allowed to stream content yourself.

 

Always up to date on how to stream American Netflix abroad

Are you looking for a method that will let you stream American Netflix abroad. Look no further, as this blog is updated several times a week to make sure that the methods we recommend work.

Click the link above, and you will be taken to my dedicated article, telling you, how to access American Netflix all across the world. You might be an American out traveling the world, but still longing for some content available on American Netflix only? Maybe you live in India, but would love to access all the movies and TV series available on US Netflix? There might be different reasons for you wanting to stream American Netflix abroad, but no matter what the reason might be, you will find the solution in the article referred to above.

What is the problem?

American Netflix abroadNetflix is present in almost all countries of the world. Every country serve as a sole region, and the content available in the different regions differ. All countries have to deal with copyright rules in their country, and thus, content will be made available in one country, but not in another.

That is why you will often experience finding content available on Netflix in the United States, but if you travel to England, you will not find the same content there.

Right now you can for example stream Suits season 7, episode by episode, on UK Netflix, but I don’t even think you can stream the sixth season on US Netflix yet. You can, however, stream the fantastic Disney movie Beauty and the Beast on American Netflix, but you can not find it in any other country, with the exception fo Canada.

As a result, lots of people want to access American Netflix (or other Netflix regions) to stream the content available there. You do not need a different Netflix subscription for this, but you can always use your present Netflix subscription, even when abroad or using a VPN to access American Netflix abroad.

 

Can I watch English Premier League on Netflix?

We all know Netflix as an outstanding streaming service. Is it possible to stream sports on Netflix? Can I watch English Premier League on Netflix?

The English Premier League will have its kick-off on August 11th. Arsenal will play against Everton at Emirates Stadium, and the interest is sky-high for the English top-league. All across the world fans yearn to watch the best clubs in England. One of the questions frequently asked by such fans is “Can I watch English Premier League on Netflix?

Premier League on Netflix
Will I ever be able to watch Manchester United on Netflix? By Mitch Gunn – Shutterstock

I do like the question, and I hope sometime in the future that my answer to the question will be yes. But, if the reply to the question would be yes, then the monthly fee for your Netflix subscription would be four times as high as it is today (and maybe more). The Premier League broadcasting rights are incredibly expensive, and the consequence is that there are only pay-TV channels broadcasting the Premier League all across the world.

In England Sky Sports broadcast the English Premier League (in part). If you want to watch their live streams a NOW TV subscription is needed, and their sports package costs you around 45 USD per month. In Sweden, you can watch the Premier League at Viaplay. A monthly package there costs around 55 USD (this also includes Champions League and several other European top-leagues). These are just some examples of the prices you meet when you want to watch the Premier League online. In other words, Premier League on Netflix would be great, but I find it hard to see how Netflix can ever allow themselves to broadcast such an expensive product.

Where can I watch the English Premier League online, if not on Netflix?

I have already mentioned two services that will let you watch the Premier League online. But, I do not recommend any of them. If you want to stream the English Premier League online, then the best service for you is FuboTV. I have a website dedicated to FuboTV, and there you can also find out how to stream English Premier League on FuboTV in Europe. Since FuboTV is an American service, it can not be used in Europe, but of course, there are ways around this. Click the link to find out more. I should also mention that this service gives you access to lots of other European football leagues, and also the biggest club tournaments in the world, Champions League, and Europe League.

No Premier League on Netflix – Should I cancel my subscription?

Why would you do that? There are so much to watch on Netflix. That is particularly the case if you use a VPN to get access to other Netflix regions. You can read more about how to access other Netflix regions right here.

I hope this answer will help you out. If you have further comments or questions, use the comment field beneath.

How to find content on Netflix with local subtitles or audio?

Netflix went global January 2016, but lots of those nations are still suffering from content that is only available in English. Netflix is however adding more and more local subtitles, and sometimes even TV series or movies with local audio. How to find such content?

Let us say that you live in Germany, and you want to find out what content is available for you on German Netflix with German audio. Or maybe you live in the Czech Republic and want to find out what you can stream on Netflix with Czech subtitles. Most people have great joy in streaming Netflix with English audio and subtitles, but if you visit some people with no English knowledge, can you still enjoy your Netflix subscription? The answer is probably yes, and here is how to find out what you can stream with your local subtitles or audio.

Content with local subtitles and audio on Netflix

If you want to find content with German subtitles, or German audio on Netflix (as you visit German Netflix), do as follows:

  • Visit Netflix.com
  • Press My List.
  • Scroll down to the bottom and select “Audio and Subtitles”
  • You can now see all content available on Netflix with German subtitles or with German audio, based on your request.

  • Find content on Netflix with Italian subtitles or Italian audio.
  • Find Netflix TV series and movies available with French subtitles or French audio.
  • Get access to Netflix content with Hungarian subtitles or Hungarian audio.
  • Discover access on Netflix available with Portuguese subtitles or language,
  • and so much more…

If you are located in Germany and want to find content with Croatian subtitles or audio, you might not even find this option in the drop-down menu. If that is so, there is no content available on German Netflix with Croatian subtitles or audio. Based on this you can quickly discover and find content suitable for you and those with little (or no) English knowledge at all.

It will also enrich the Netflix experience of those looking for content available in their own language. Based on what I have seen so far, Netflix is growing day by day, and they are also adding new subtitles and new audio every day. I am happy to see that, and I hope these instructions will help you enjoy your Netflix subscription even more.

When will La La Land come to Netflix

Watch La La Land on NetflixLa La Land has just been released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the United States. When will La La Land come to Netflix?

November 8th, 2017: You can now stream La La Land on Netflix. Read this article for more information.

It is impossible to predict when a movie will come to Netflix, but if you compare it with other similar movies, then my first guess would be around July 2017. Last year Mad Max: Fury Road and Spotlight were among the big winners during the Academy Awards, and both these movies were made available during the summer of 2016. Based on that my guess is that La La Land will come to Netflix sometime this summer, but that is for sure only true about a few regions.

My first guess is that La La Land will first be made available on Canadian Netflix, as that is the region getting the biggest blockbusters fastest of all regions. That was true about both Mad Max: Fury Road and about Spotlight, so why shouldn’t it be true about La La Land.

There are however a few exceptions when brilliant movies are made available on US Netflix first, something that was true about Finding Dory, the brand new Pixar movie.

November 8th, 2017: You can now stream La La Land on Netflix. Read this article for more information.

Is it worth waiting for La La Land?

If you are a big fan of Ryan Gssling and Emma Stone, then the answer is probably yes. I am quite a big fan of both actors, but I have to be honest and say that La La Land was incredibly boring. It is a long time since I was so bored watching a movie, and the incredible truth is that I did not manage to finish the movie. That is almost impossible, considering that I feel like Sheldon Cooper who has to finish whatever I start.

There is however one more example of a movie I did not manage to finish recently. Guess what, Ryan Gosling was playing in that movie as well, and it was The Nice Guys.

Now maybe you completely disagree with me, and that is very fine. But, if you feel like doing so, write a comment and tell me why I am so wrong!

Can I watch Netflix in Saint Martin?

Traveling to St.Martin,what do i need to access my netflix account? What do I need to access my netflix account on a TV while in St.Martin any special streaming device?

Thank you for the question! You are a lucky person, because as you travel to St Martin you should be able to watch Netflix without trouble. That means all you have to do is to visit www.netflix.com and you should be able to get started. But, that will not work if you want to watch all the content available on Netflix in the United States. Since you travel abroad the content available will differ and thus you might miss some of the content from home, or maybe you will be really happy about some available content that you could not find at home.

I just watched Star Wars: Rogue One in the cinemas and immediately I felt like watching Star Wars: A New Hope at once. But, can I watch Star Wars: A New Hope on Netflix?

I have seen Star Wars: A New Hope before, but after watching Star Wars: Rogue One I really felt like watching it again. I was really curious to see how the story in Rogue One really fits with the story in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope from 1977. And do you know what? I am currently watching Star Wars: A New Hope on Netflix as I am writing this article, and it is simply incredible to watch the movie after watching Rogue One. It feels as if Rogue One really was made back in 1975 and this was such a natural movie made to continue the story from Rogue One.

So, is it worth watching Star Wars: Rogue One? Absolutely! It was a great movie and if you are a Star Wars fan you will for sure like the story and everything that has to do with the movie. But, after watching it you will also want to watch Star Wars: A New Hope (again). So, where can you watch Star Wars: A New Hope on Netflix?

When will Star Wars: Rogue One come to Netflix?

Based on how quickly Star Wars: The Force Awakens came to Netflix my answer would be sometime in the second half of 2017. But time will show, and it might be different this time since Star Wars: Rogue One is a Disney production!
