Getting Started With Netflix Outside The USA On Your Ps3
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Everyone these days knows that Netflix is cool.  It's has tons of movies that are available online as well as on DVD and it's just a couple bucks a month.  There have been some recent changes recently regarding the separation of the DVD delivery system and the online sections of Netflix, but other than that, Netflix is still providing the same high quality service, around the clock, streamed right to your home - if you're in The USA.  This is the part that only users that travel outside The USA (or residents of countries other than The US) might notice.  You can't watch Netflix outside The USA - without a bit of extra  help.

And Netflix is also available on a multitude of TV streaming devices.  This include Android phones and Tablets, iPhone, iPad, and laptop/desktop operating systems.  They even stream to gaming consoles like Xbox and PS3.  Being able to watch Netflix on PS3 or Xbox offers a number of conveniences.

1. Your TV screen is bigger than your laptop screen 2. Your too lazy to switch between your laptop and PS3 3.  You laptop may be infected with viruses making Netflix streaming slow

So it goes without saying that there are a number of users that want to watch Netflix outside The USA on PS3.

But how do you do it?

To tell you the truth, it's not that easy, and for the technically challenged, it might take you a while. However, if you keep in mind that it is definitely possible to do so, all you need to do is keep at it and eventually you'll get it.

Issues you might run into

To watch Netflix outside The USA on PS3 you're going to need to get a VPN subscription. This is going to be what changes the IP address of your PS3, and allows you to gain access to restricted sites like Netflix and Hulu regardless of your location.  However, a PS3 doesn't come with a VPN client, which means you're going to have to find some other way to get it hooked up to a VPN. This could be in the form of a VPN router, which will allow all Internet connected devices in your network to connect to the VPN server in The US, or in the form of a VPN installed on your laptop, which will also act as a middle man for your PS3 and the VPN server.

Depending on the condition of your laptop and how easy it is for you to set up a VPN router, I generally would suggest getting a VPN for your laptop and routing your PS3 through that.  It just means there's less hardware for you to mess with.

However, setup is probably the only complicated part of watching Netflix outside The USA on PS3. Once this is accomplished, connecting to the VPN and accessing the Netflix Instant area will be simple.
