Stream Netflix Outside The USA
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

To stream Netflix outside The USA, the only practical solution is with a VPN. You may have heard of VPN and are avoiding getting one in not for procrastination, then for saving a bit of money. However, if you really want to stream Netflix outside The USA, a VPN is the only way. Though you may have read some old blog posts about Hotspot Shield and free proxies getting access to the Netflix site from anywhere in the world, this is now not the case. Netflix blocks proxies and most any other "hacker trick" to access the site from outside The USA, so good luck. If you've got some time on your hands, then go for it. If you just want the quick and easy way, a VPN is the way to go.

If you've never downloaded a VPN, you'll be surprised how quick it is. I mean, it totally makes sense if you think about it. You're not downloading any sort of software or program. All you're doing is downloading a connection portal to the VPN server. All the work is handled by the VPN server in The USA, so there's really nothing for your computer to do, except to send data as it regularly would. This is also why a VPN won't really slow your Internet speed down. There will be a bit of drag, because the data you send Netflix's site has to be re-routed to a server somewhere in the USA before it actually reaches the site, but most of the time this speed difference will be minimal. If you get a proper, paid VPN service, you won't have to worry about buffering times when you stream Netflix outside The USA. If you play around with one of these fly-by-night free VPN service, you may end up spending two or three hours to watch an hour and a half movie.

If you're living outside The US and want to get access to Netflix's site (as opposed to being a Netflix member and wanting to continue your membership while you're away from America), you're going to have to get some Netflix gift certificates to stream Netflix outside The USA. That's because you haven't got a way to pay for the service! They only accept American credit cards, so by getting gift certificates from Amazon or Ebay, this is your loophole to a Netflix membership.

Once you connect to the VPN, you can surf the Internet as usual. The cool thing is that if you're watching Netflix outside The US on your iPad or iPhone, you get the added bonus of extra protection with the VPN. Mobile devices that connect to the Internet tend to have weaker security features than say, a laptop,so if you're in a cafe or somewhere with wifi, if you're connected to the VPN, you're protected against hackers and spies. That's because your data is encrypted to hide your IP address before it's sent to the American VPN server. This also is why Netflix is not able to see your actual IP address. That's just technical stuff which is not that important.

The most important thing is that this technique definitely works to stream Netflix outside The USA. It's quick and easy, and for anyone who's impatient or lazy, this is definitely the way to go.
