Netflix Outside the USA on Samsung Tablets

You can access Netflix outside the USA on Samsung tablets. There are quite a few out there, but different versions of Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, and Samsung Galaxy Note are probably the most popular. Actually, they'll all run different version of Android, so setting up Netflix outside the US is going to be similar. Android systems are similar enough that you don't really need to know which version you're running to actually get this trick working, though your VPN service may need to know this so they can give you the right client or app.

What's that about a VPN service?

VPN services are used for a lot of things, especially for business, but many tech-savvy users can also use VPN to change their IP address. Your non-US IP is what's preventing you from accessing the Netflix site (the American version), so changing it can get you access to the site.

About Changing your IP

I blog about VPNs and other ways to change your IP, and the first thing my friends always say is "So, you basically help people hack and commit crime, and they can get away with it because they spoof their IP".

That's not really correct.

Yes, VPNs can be used for privacy online, and they can be used to change your IP. And yes, laws are different in every country, so even if you're in China, where Facebook is illegal, you can use a VPN to get a US IP and access it.

The same would apply to other websites which are blocked in The US, which you may want a Chinese IP for.

And VPN services have ways of finding the hackers, identity thieves and other nefarious characters, so NO, VPNs are not for illegal stuff.

Now back to Netflix.

So you sign up for a VPN service, and they'll give you some login credentials.

All version of Android will come ready to use a VPN. Like I said, they're popular in business, and a VPN can actually be used to increase your security on unsecured networks. But that's another story.

You can find your VPN settings in your wireless networks settings are.

It'll give you a choice between a PPTP or L2TP connection. PPTP will probably be a bit simpler to set up, and a little bit faster, so go for that one. L2TP will also work, but may come with more encryption, and need more bandwidth, thus slowing down your streaming speed. That will partly depend on your internet connection though.

Once you enter the credentials provided by the VPN service, you're good to go. You can access your US Netflix account, or if you're signing up, you can get your 1 month free trial.

There are a couple of ways to pay for Netflix even without a US credit card. One, you can use Paypal. Two, you can get a gift card. Three, you can purchase one-time-use debit cards which are available online.
