How to watch German Netflix abroad? [Updated: March 2024]

German Netflix

Are you in the mood for watching German Netflix, but you are stuck with proxy errors (using VPN services) or simply get access to other Netflix regions instead? This is how you can watch German Netflix abroad.

I just gave this a try myself and immediately I got access to German Netflix and could watch Shaun das Schaf online on Netflix. I have tried quite a lot of different solutions to get access to German Netflix from abroad. Still, unfortunately, most of the VPN providers and SmartDNS providers are blocked, meaning that they can not be used to get access to German Netflix outside Germany. But, there is a solution and this is how you can access German Netflix as well! If you want to get access to other Netflix regions, visit the front page and read the instructions there.

Give it a try and enjoy it as it will work for you.
But, it might be that Netflix in the future will block this method as well and if you experience trouble like that, please write a comment at once so that I can update this article and present another working method instead. But, until you see comments telling otherwise, this method should work 100%!

Why watch German Netflix abroad?

Some people may wonder why it is interesting to change your Netflix region to another. Isn’t the same content available in every Netflix region? To a certain degree, that is true! All 100% of Netflix original content is available in all Netflix regions. But, there is a lot of Netflix content that can only be seen in certain regions. For example, Suits is presented as Netflix’s original content in the UK, while it isn’t in other regions. In the UK, Cuckoo is presented as a BBC original series (and cannot be found on Netflix), while it elsewhere in the world is presented as Netflix’s original content.

As a result, you will discover that there is a lot of content available on Netflix in Germany that you cannot find in other regions. And, maybe you have discovered that there are things available in your current region that you cannot find in other Netflix regions.

One of the most interesting aspects of German Netflix is all the original German content, both TV shows and movies. If you have a goal of learning German, Netflix Germany is your good friend. Here you can find movies and shows with German audio and German subtitles. And, if it is easier, then you can watch with German audio and English subtitles, or maybe the other way around?

In other words, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and get access to German Netflix today and stream all the content you have been looking forward to watching for a long time.

  1. Just looked through the article, updated it, tested the VPN recommended… get ready to stream German Netflix content wherever you are in the world following these instructions!

  2. If your Netflix account is from an EU country, you have no chance to watch Netflix Germany anymore,whatever your vpn. So told me the tech of a support team few days ago

    1. That is true, but there is a solution though 🙂 I will write more about it later, but if you cancel your current Netflix subscription, use a VPN to get a Brazilian IP address, visit Netflix again and create a new account. You will then have a Netflix account outside the EU, and not only so, it will also be way cheaper than your current account!

  3. I just tested the VPN services described and updated the article to make sure that all instructions work and are valid as of June 2018! Give it a try and have fun streaming German Netflix from abroad!

  4. Pretty positive that all 4 German VPN locations with EpressVPN are no longer working. Frankfurt 2 and Dusseldorf were working last week. Now neither seem to be working.

    1. Thanks for writing. You seem to be right, so will be looking for a new and working method instead!

  5. I found that I had to kill skype processes using task manager before my VPN was fully working. Give that a go.

  6. Not working. Is this a con to get people signed up to ExpressVPN? Followed the steps exaclty still get the netflix error saying I am behind an unblocker

    1. Not a con at all, after all ExpressVPN has a 30 day full refund policy, meaning that you will get your money back if you are not satisfied, so no risk at all involved in this. Have you tried speaking to the ExpressVPN customer service? By the way I just tried this myself and the method described is working as of July 14th.

    1. Just found a working method now, so give it a try if you want to watch German Netflix abroad again!

  7. Thank you for telling. I am looking for some other solution and will update the article as soon as I find one!
