Netflix is such a widely used streaming service these days that few people haven’t tried its services. The monthly fee is very reasonable and its service is second to none. But few people know that its usage can be truly unlimited…
Netflix and viewing rights
Currently, Netflix is available in almost 200 countries, which is truly impressive. However, each of these countries has a different service offering and associated monthly payment amount depending on the original and licensed movies, series and shows. We will therefore have a different offer here in the Czech Republic and in the other countries. So changing countries on Netflix is not easy at all, but thanks to natural human ingenuity, it is not impossible.
Why change country on Netflix in the first place?
How to change country on Netflix
So if you want to change country on Netflix without an approved reason, you’ll need to change its system and change your visible location. A regular VPN connection will usually suffice for this task, but Netflix’s system effectively blocks most traditional VPNs, leaving you with nothing but an error message.
Once you find a VPN that Netflix doesn’t block or simply doesn’t know, there’s another unpleasant discovery. In most cases, connecting via VPN is so slow that instead of the movie you were expecting, you get a stuck screen and constant loading.
The ideal choice so far seems to be ExpressVPN. It can bypass Netflix geolocation, has a fast stable connection and servers in over 90 countries. So the range of movies and shows on offer will be truly almost limitless.
How do I set up a VPN to watch?
- Download ExpressVPN or another usable VPN to your device and install it. Whether it’s mobile, PC, or tablet.
- Sign up and, if applicable, choose your monthly plan, which needs to be paid for (some VPNs offer a few days free trial).
- Connect to a server in the country with the desired Netflix content. With most VPNs, you can do this in a few clicks.
- Then just turn on your browser and log into your Netflix account – or launch the Netflix app on your device.
- Enjoy movies and TV shows you didn’t have access to before.
Which countries to join on Netflix?
If you’re not looking for a specific movie or show and just want to expand your selection, we definitely recommend the US libraries. But you’ll find the biggest selection of films in Canada. But popular Netflix libraries also include those in the UK, Australia and Japan.
