Netflix is one of the best video streaming services which offer the best content on the internet. However, Netflix also restricts content for many countries as per their contract with producers. Netflix’s system tracks users based on their IP, so even if you a US-based account, it will block content if your current location is different. That’s where you need PrivateVPN. It is specifically built to unblock Netflix in different regions and let users access all the contents even if you have a physical place outside the US.
Unblock Netflix using PrivateVPN
PrivateVPN offers a custom-built VPN for Netflix. It gives you access to full US catalog of movies and TV shows. You can choose to stream in HD, and also access using multiple accounts. Apart from the US, you can also select any other countries IP, and access content which is available only for that region.
PrivateVPN offers IP bought directly from transit providers. It uses High-quality-network (HQN) servers to make sure the speed is not a problem. It also makes sure that your account remains safe. The most significant advantage of using PrivateVPN is that they have working servers for every country. It makes things a lot easier.
How to use PrivateVPN with Netflix
Once you buy the subscription service, download the software for windows or if you are using it on your phone, download the app and sign-in with the account credentials you created while buying it. The next step is to configure server which is dedicated for Netflix. Click on the dropdown, and select a server which has a mention of Netflix.
Once you select click on connect, and it will connect to the US server, and also reveal the IP address. Post this, you can open Netflix on the browser or the app, and it will show the content available for the US only. You can instantly start streaming those restricted videos. I tried this, and it works. The screenshot above reveals Flash in the search which is limited to the US region only. The account I am using here is not from the US.
My experience of using PrivateVPN is fantastic. All one needs to is install the software, select the region, and click connect. Your access to US restricted Netflix videos is going to be instant. You don’t need to do any change in your account. When you log in with your account, Netflix will show all the content which never were on your account before.
