If you live in the United States and have an active Netflix account, you will for sure want to enjoy the benefits of your account also while overseas. But, does Netflix allow its users to enjoy their Netflix subscription while abroad?
The answer to the question is NO! You can only enjoy and watch your Netflix account while in the actual nation in which your Netflix account is registered. In other words, if you have a US Netflix account, you can only watch that inside the United States, said in a bit more technical way, you can only watch it with a US IP address. The result is therefore that as you try to visit Netflix.com when overseas you will get an error message telling you that it is not available at your current location. But, what can be done to fix this problem?
If you try to open Netflix.com in a nation where Netflix in unavailable, you might get this error message
Watching Netflix overseas!
To watch your Netflix account overseas you will need to get yourself an IP address in the USA (if that is where you have your Netflix account). The best way of getting a US IP is to sign up for the services of a VPN provider, and at the moment the best and cheapest solution is to use the services of PureVPN. That is a very good VPN provider with servers in more than 35 nations, and they even have a three-day money back guarantee (if you use less than 500mb of bandwidth). All you need to do to get this working is to follow these steps.
- Visit the PureVPN website and sign up for their services (the 12 month price is especially good!!!)
- Download their PureVPN application.
- Connect to a server in the United States.
- Restart your browser.
- Visit Netflix.com and enjoy watching your current Netflix subscription from abroad!
That is it. It is easy, it is fun, and it is even increasing your security and privacy online, as a VPN not only gives you a new IP address, it also encrypts your data online. Easily said – a brilliant investment. And when you have a VPN subscription, you can use it for so much other stuff as well. Read more in the article: 100 reasons to get a VPN.
