How to Choose a VPN to Unblock Netflix?

Once you have a Netflix subscription, it is easy to access any content from pretty much anywhere across the world. What you probably did not know is that the catalogue of movies and/or TV shows you can watch will greatly vary depending on the region you are located. In some countries, the platform’s library is quite limited. As such, you might want to trick it into thinking that you are in a different location or region in order to access a variety of content.

Your best course of action here is to use a Virtual Private Network or VPN. By choosing the best VPNs to unblock Netflix, you will be able to access a movie or show that is restricted to a particular region.

How a VPN Works

Basically, it tunnels your internet traffic directly to an intermediary server, which is located in a country of your preference. It masks your IP address and, at the same time, replaces it with the one from your chosen region or country. To put it simply, it spoofs your location. Above all, a VPN is capable of encrypting all of your traffic; hence, no one will be able to monitor your activity – and not even your ISP can do that.

As long as you are set up with a VPN, there is nothing stopping you from accessing all content in Netflix’s library. And mind you, the whole set up process is pretty straightforward. Here is how you will do it:

  • Set up a Netflix account in case you have not gotten one yet.
  • Download and install your chosen VPN.
  • Simply connect to a server in your chosen region or country.
  • Access the official website of Netflix. You should immediately be redirected to the website for the region or country your chosen server is in.
  • Log in and binge-watch!

Will a VPN Slow Your Netflix Streaming?

This is definitely one of the common misconceptions out there. Many people think that using a VPN can slow down their Netflix streaming. No, it does not. In fact, it has the potential to make your internet connection faster. It has the ability to rather improve your connection, especially if your ISP is fond of throttling Netflix traffic.

If anything, though, there is a workaround. Let’s say you notice a significant change in your Netflix streaming or the quality of videos dropped. It is imperative that you select the server that is closer to your own region, country, or area.

Why Use a VPN for Netflix

Just like with any other subscription-based services, you want to make sure that you get what you paid for. And this is exactly what a VPN offers. It gives you the much-needed experience to further expand your movie or TV show streaming. Furthermore, the technology gives you added protection. Keep in mind that in this digital age, privacy and security have become top concerns. And you want to have the means to protect yourself from exploiters and/or hackers who want to view or steal your personal information.
