Watch the American Version Of Netflix In the United Kingdom

It was only at the beginning of 2012 that Netflix made the move to create a server in the United Kingdom, which allows people living in the United Kingdom to create a Netflix account and to use it like their American counterparts. Although the United Kingdom version of Netflix offers a range of locally produced content, it is surprisingly scares on much of the content that is available in the American version. For many users watching Netflix in the United Kingdom, this is very disappointing and removes much of the point of accessing Netflix in the first place.

There is a solution however. It is entirely possible to use the American version of Netflix from within the United Kingdom instead of the United Kingdom version. The problem is that the American version of Netflix is, not surprisingly, designed for people within America. This means that the answer is to convince the website that you are also in America.

If you try to access Netflix normally, you will be automatically be directed to the United Kingdom version of the site and the United Kingdom content. This occurs because your IP address tells the website that you are in the United Kingdom. So, we need to change this. A program known as VPN can be used very effectively for this. What you actually do is connect to a VPN, which stands for virtual private network. By doing this, you directly link yourself with a server in another part of the world. The server acts to mediate the interaction between you and other websites.

This means that everything you do first goes through the server, and all the information that sites send you also does this. So, when Netflix tries to find out where you are, the server gives it a location, and Netflix bases what content it offers you on this. Because of this, you can now use the American version of Netflix.

This solution has other advantages too. It lets you access a lot of websites that you couldn’t before. For example, many websites that stream American television programs, such as NBC, ABC and HBO, all require the user to be within the United States. Using a VPN for Netflix allows you to watch the American version of Netflix in the United Kingdom, as well as all of these other sites as well. You can even use the service to watch Netflix outside the USA while travelling, whether it is inside the country or between countries.
