Its Troublesome But Possible To Watch Netflix Outside The Usa On Apple Tv
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Apple TV is a pretty sweet device that's come out recently. With a Netflix account, it means that you never have to leave the house again. The problem is that if you're outside the US, you can't access the Netflix site. Watching Netflix outside The USA on Apple TV is possible. It's a bit troublesome, but once you get it set up it's totally worth it.

The first battle you'll have to fight to be able to get Netflix outside The USA on Apple TV is to get a Netflix account. If you're a US citizen with a US credit card, this isn't a problem. If you haven't got access to a US credit card, there still are some solutions for you. One, is to get some gift certificates from Amazon or other gift certificate sites. This can be annoying to constantly have to buy these things, but you may not have a choice. If you have a Paypal account, you're in luck. Netflix also accepts Paypal payments, so no matter where you are you can use it. If you haven't got a Paypal account, you can make one - from just about anywhere in the world. However, Paypal has very specific needs with regards to verification, so be prepared to hand over credit card info, banking info, birth certificate stuff, and maybe a blood and hair sample.

The next thing you've got to do is get a VPN router. Unlike other Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers, Apple TV doesn't support VPN, so you've got a couple of options. One, is to get a VPN router. With a VPN router, you'll be able to use your VPN subscription in combination with this router to change the IP of your Apple TV. Another option to is to use a VPN on your laptop (Both Mac and Windows should work), and connect the Apple TV to the laptop via Ethernet cable. The setup is not going to be as easy as 1-2-3, but it is possible. Unfortunately, there are a lot of variables here (ie OS, version of OS or Apple TV, VPN service, etc), so I won't go into the details.

Fortunately the last step in getting Netflix on Apple TV is pretty easy. You need a VPN subscription. This can be purchased online, through a number of different companies. Each company will have different features, price packages, and types of support, so browse around a bit before purchasing. The main thing here is that you want a VPN server with servers in The USA. Because Netflix requires an American IP address to be able to stream movies from their sites, you're going to need a US IP from the VPN. Most VPN services will have US IP packages available, and many will have US IP addresses as part of a "all in one" package with many server locations from around the world.
