Watch the American Version Of Netflix In China

If you live in China you are already aware that internet censorship is prevalent and there are many websites and online series that you cannot get access to. Netflix is one of these. If you try to access Netflix in China then you will find that you are blocked from it. Indeed, access to Netflix is somewhat of an exclusive commodity and most countries cannot use their service. However, there is a way around this.

Netflix, and many other sites, use your IP address to determine your physical location. Each country is allocated specific IP addresses, and website can access this information. Because of this, trying to trick sites by saying you are in the United States does not work. A VPN is a network that makes use of high privacy measures to ensure that none of the information that the user sends is accessible to an outside source. This means that no one can determine what sites you have been visiting or what you did on them.

In terms of Netflix, VPNs have another significant advantage. They act as a bridge, standing between your computer and the website you are trying to access. When the website tries to find out what you IP address is, it reads the one that the VPN server provides it with instead. So, if you select an American IP address, the website will believe you are in the United States. VPNs are very effective and websites cannot tell that you are not actually in America.

With this trick you are able to attain the same level of access to Netflix that people in the United States have. This means all the same content, and getting the content at the same time. The VPN does much more than let you access Netflix. By changing your IP address, your physical location is hidden and you gain an American ‘netizenship’. This lets you visit any website with the same degree of freedom that you would if you were actually in the United States.

Using a VPN for Netflix in China lets you access any content you want from the American version of Netflix, and avoid internet censorship. What you do with this is up to you, but I recommend spending a lot of time watching American television and movies online. It is surprising just how relaxing watching Netflix outside of the USA can be, personally it is one of my favorite pastimes while overseas long term
