September 16th is the date on which Netflix will be launched in Germany. Can’t wait for it to happen, right?
There will of course be lots of Hollywood productions and films included in the catalogue available to subscribers from day one, but in addition Netflix has gotten the rights for some very popular German productions such as Stromberg, Die Sendung mit der Maus and several others.
Just wait for some more days, and you are ready to watch Netflix in Germany soon!
Netflix is growing bigger and bigger, and that is why they will soon open up in six new nations in Europe. For many that is great news, because by then it will be possible to watch Netflix in Germany without using a VPN, because it will be a very own Netflix available in Germany. If you want to know more about in which other nations Netflix will open, and when, read the following article on Netflixnews.org.
In addition there are daily added new films and shows to Netflix, and recent news also claim that the entire Seinfeld show might be added to Netflix within shortly. For UK users it is great that you can follow Luther and his crime investigations online, while Big Daddy and other shows can be watch fully on US Netflix. In addition there are thousands of other films, series, documentaries and cool stuff available, so if you do not have your very own Netflix account ready yet, make sure to get one as soon as possible!
It is the US Netlix which has the most users, and maybe therefore also the biggest selection of films available, but the UK Netflix has some really nice goodies that the US Netflix do not have, so it is more a question if you want to go for the BBC and UK series, or if you are more into the US TV shows and series, then the US Netflix is the solution for you. No matter where you are, read more on this site on how to get a Netflix account and how to watch it from another country here.
Netflix has had an amazing year so far and they recently passed more than 50 million users worldwide. That number will soon grow with several million within a very short time, because in September Netflix will be made available in six new European nations; Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxemburg.
Netflix coming to Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxemburg in September
We do not have the exact date yet for the time when Netflix will be made available in these nations, but it is said to come, so if you live in Germany or one of the other nations, it is time to get ready for Netflix in your own language and in your own country. For a while quite a lot of people in these nations have used VPNs to get a Netflix account in other countries in which Netflix has been available until now, but from September that time will be over, and people in Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxemburg can watch Netflix with their own account in their own nation!
Sounds great, don’t you think? Share the news and let everyone know!
If you live in Germany and want to watch Netflix, you are a lucky person. In a way unlucky, because Netflix is not really available in Germany. But, lucky because you can easily watch Netflix in Germany, even though it is not really available.
[stextbox id=”alert”]Netflix will officially be launched in Germany in September. Until then you can use the following description to watch Netflix, and as you later get your very own German Netflix account, you can use the following description to watch your German Netflix account from outside Germany, using HideMyAss to get a German IP address.[/stextbox]
To be able to watch Netflix in Germany the solution is to get an IP address in the UK. Since Netflix is available to people living in Great Britain you will need to get a British IP address. Once you have this you will not get an error message every time you try to visit the Netflix website, but instead you will get a question if you want to sign up for the free 30 day trial period. And the answer to that question is of course yes. But, how can get get an IP address in England and get started?
Watch UK Netflix in Germany
To watch UK Netflix in Germany you can sign up with a VPN provider such as HideMyAss (please read my honest review here). They have tons of servers in the UK and once you sign up for the VPN services you can connect to any of these using their VPN client which as well is very easy to use and to download. All you therefore need to do is to visit the HideMyAss website, sign up for their service (not expensive at all), connect to a server in the UK and get started watching Netflix from Germany.
If you would rather watch the US Netflix use HideMyAss as well. They have servers in the USA providing you with an American IP address, and if you want to they also have virtual servers in Amsterdam and in London also giving you American IP, so that you will not lose much bandwidth on your quest for an American IP address. Enough reading, time to watch Netflix. Visit the HideMyAss website first and get started!
If you have tried this and watched Netflix in Germany, or maybe from some other nation in the world, write a comment and share your experience. I would love to hear from you!
