As a service, the streaming viewing of Netflix has become widely known throughout the world. It is hands down the best way of watching television shows or movies. You do not need to wait for the right program to be on like you would if you were using cable or normal television, and access is immediate, unlike physically renting copies of movies. But for people wanting to watch Netflix in Greece, there are some difficulties.
Netflix is a service that is designed for people in the United States. Although there are other Netflix servers throughout the world now, these do not have the same amount of content that the American version has to offer. Furthermore, people living in Greece do not have access to any of these versions of Netflix either.
Getting around this is a simple task. You need to use a VPN to fake your physical location, and make it appear that you are in America.
Using a VPN you can connect to an American server. When you are connected to this, any website will not see your IP address, but instead they view the one that the VPN provides. This makes the site think you are in the United States. Based on this information, Netflix will give you full access to the content available on the American server, even though you are actually in Greece.
This lets you watch streaming Netflix content easily. This is fantastic, as the amount of content that Netflix has available continues to expand and there is talk of exclusive content for Netflix in 2013. If this goes ahead, these shows won’t be available any other way. Netflix also receives new content fast, and is making agreements to obtain some content before it is released to normal channels.
It is also a good way to access American movies and programs that would not normally be available in Greece. Finally, because the VPN gives you an American IP address, you can access any site that is designed to be restricted only to people in America.
This is a fantastic way of bypassing internet censorship and having freedom when using the internet. Using a VPN for Netflix is currently the only known way to access Netflix in Greece due to the way that servers check your physical location. It is very effective, and websites do not know that you aren’t in the United States. VPNs are commonly used throughout the world to access Netflix outside the USA.
