How To Get American Netflix
It may seem like the Holy Grail, but thankfully you don’t need to be Indiana Jones to get it. It’s actually quite easy. All you need to get American Netflix is a simple thing called a VPN.
We were all excited for Netflix’s launch in Australia in 2015. That excitement quickly washed away and became a bitter disappointment when we realised how little content was actually coming our way. As of January, Australia had 2092 titles, while the US had 5760. For the mathematically challenged, that’s barely a third of the content (trust me, I had to use a calculator). What’s even worse is that Australians pay basically the same amount as Americans for a much lesser service.
Should you feel guilty for taking a back door into Netflix’s house? We don’t think so. You are still a paying customer, it’s just that you are paying for a much more inferior service than your American peers get. How is that fair? Using a VPN to access geo-restricted content is perfectly legal, so you shouldn’t feel bad about it.
How Can I Get American Netflix with a VPN?
First, we have to understand what a VPN is. Some guy on the bus once told me that VPN is French for Virtual Private Network. He may not have been right about the French part. Virtual Private Networks are essentially networks that use encryption for heightened privacy and security. They have many uses and accessing geo-restricted content such as US Netflix is just one of them.
When set up correctly, a VPN can make it look like your web traffic is coming from within the US, even if you’re in Surrey sipping a latte. When you go on Netflix, they will think that you are in the US and let you watch all of the US content.
A VPN can actually make it look like your web traffic is coming from anywhere that they have an available server, so this can work for accessing content that is restricted to the UK, Canada, Australia and many other places.
You can do this with most VPNs, but some are certainly better than others. We recommend ExpressVPN because we feel like they are one of the best in their field in a range of ways. They take privacy and security seriously, while they have the right engineers on their team to stay ahead of Netflix and any potential attempts to block them.
