How to watch Netflix in Turkey?

Are you located in Turkey and long for a good film? Maybe some friend at Facebook has told you about this great show available at Netflix, and now you are willing to do anything to watch it yourself. The only problem is that the Netflix site give you the following error message: “Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available.”

Netflix launched in Turkey on January 6th, 2016. Enjoy watching, but if you are not satisfied with Turkish Netflix and want to watch Netflix content available in other Netflix regions, follow these instructions!

That sounds like a serious message, and it sounds both hard and maybe impossible to get by it. But, you found this page for a reason, because you believe that there might still be a way around it and a method that will make it possible for you to watch Netflix, also in Turkey. The answer is yes! Yes! Yes, you can watch Netflix in Turkey!

Watch Netflix in Turkey

Watch Netflix in Turkey!

Did you know that as you surf the Internet you have a special address, an IP address. This address contain information about for example your whereabouts. So, as you visit the Netflix website the first thing their website do is to check your IP address and based on that they send you on to different pages. If you have an IP address in Turkey, you will get the error message as explained in the introduction. If you have an IP address in for example England or in the USA you will get a warm welcome to Netflix and an invitation to sign up for the 30-day free trial. Therefore, to be able to watch Netflix in Turkey you will need to get an IP address in the UK or in the USA, and then you will be able to sign up for your 30 day free Netflix trial.

Watch Netflix with UK/USA IP

I have done this a lot myself, so I write this article based on personal experience. Whenever I am in need of an IP address in USA or in the UK I use a VPN provider. I have used several VPN providers throughout the last years, but if I need to name one VPN provider that works great for both goals it is HideMyAss. They have servers in more than 60 nations in addition to USA and the United Kingdom, so you can use the VPN service for many other purposes (also to get a Turkey IP address if you should ever need that), but first of all you can use it to get an IP address in the UK or in the USA, and once you have that you can connect to a server in one of the nations, visit the Netflix website and sign up for your thirty day trial. Be aware of the fact that if you want to sign up in the USA, you may need an American card. You can then for example use Entropay, PayPal or Payoneer.
