Watch the American Version Of Netflix In the United Arab Emirates

You may often wish you were in the United States. If not for the country itself then for some of the opportunities they have. American television is one of these.

The United States produces so many movies and television programs. Despite people outside of the United States being interested in these, licensing agreements mean that local networks may show the programs a season or more behind their American counterparts, if they show them at all. Netflix Instant is a fantastic way of watching American shows from outside the United States, but how easy this is depends on your location. If you want to watch Netflix from the United Arab Emirates, then you have to get around Netflix’s filters first.

Connecting, or trying to connect, to the Netflix server from the United Arab Emirates will give you an error message. Netflix checks the IP address of anyone trying to use their services. The idea is that this stops people outside the region from using it. Although this technique works, getting around it is as simple as changing your IP address. Because your IP address identifies your location, changing it convinces Netflix that you are living somewhere else.

You want to use a service that lets you change your IP address to one in the United States. After all, switching to another one in the United Arab Emirates won’t do you a lot of good. There is a service available called VPN that lets you do this and more. VPN lets you use the internet anonymously, and because of this, Netflix cannot tell where you are physically located. In addition, the VPN server that you use masks your IP address with one that they provide. This means that you are essentially invisible, and can use the internet as if you were in America.

Using a VPN for Netflix in the UAE is a very effective way of solving the problem of content. You can watch many different movies and television programs from the United States. Another benefit of this that isn’t so obvious is that because you end up with an American IP address through this process, you can get past any local restrictions on internet content. Your browsing is also completely anonymous, so you don’t have to worry about visiting any sites that might be politically sensitive. The truth is that not only can you access Netflix outside of the USA through this method, but you can browse the internet just like you could if you were in the United States.
