What is so great about American Netflix?

Donald Trump wanted to make America great again but failed. But, what is it that makes American Netflix great? Why are people looking for a way to stream US Netflix in Australia? Why do the people of Canada want to get access to US Netflix in their own country?

Or maybe you are wondering why people all across Europe are asking Google for help to watch American Netflix in Sweden, Germany, Denmark, France, Spain, England, Norway, Italy, and in many other countries?

Watching Thor Ragnarok on US Netflix (the movie has since then been removed from US Netflix).

The reason is simple – we all want to taste America! And, let us not forget that Netflix in the USA is the most popular of all Netflix regions out there. Here you will gain access to lots of content several months before it shows up anywhere else, and it is the Netflix region with the most content. As a result, there is more stuff to stream, and more movies and TV shows to enjoy.

If you have read around here in this guide, you will probably notice that we write articles about what’s coming to Netflix regularly. In these lists, you can discover that many movies come to American Netflix long before they appear elsewhere. For example, in December 2019, people could stream Avengers: Infinity War on Netflix in the USA. Within less than 10 days they also got access to The Ant-Man and the Wasp, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and many other great movies. These are big blockbusters that the rest of the world had to wait for and maybe your local Netflix region still lacks access to these movies.

Are you convinced? Visit the NordVPN website and get access to American Netflix today.

If you click the link above, you will get a big discount as you purchase a subscription to the service.

Not convinced yet? Do not forget that you can access even more Netflix regions using NordVPN. In other words, you will not only get access to American Netflix, but you can also stream Canadian, UK, German, Dutch, and other regions!

Get ready to watch US Netflix abroad, be it in Australia, France, Japan, or maybe in Canada.

  1. I just updated the article with lots of new information and even more detailed information on how you can stream American Netflix in Australia, in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, and all across the globe! Cheers!

  2. This has got to be the best site for those who want to get access to other NEtflix regions… it is all updated and working. Thanks!

  3. Glad to finally visit a site that has updated information. I was especially looking for information on how to access German Netflix, and here I found it… and it’s working. Thanks a lot! πŸ™‚

  4. I just updated the front page and lots of sub-articles to make sure that they are up to date. The front page has been updated with information about the EU regulations, and also with information on a VPN provider that will help you get access to lots of Netflix regions at the same time. Hope you will find the updated instructions useful. If you have a question or a comment, please write!

  5. I just tested the services described in this article, and I can confirm that they both work perfectly with American Netflix as of June 2018. Enjoy streaming Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars: The Last Jedi on American Netflix, and of course all other content you might be interested in!

  6. This sucks that you have to pay for an extra server to watch Netflix one is already paying for.
    Not fair.
    But that’s the way of all corporations and governments, right?

    1. Well… you are not really supposed to be able to stream content available in other Netflix regions, so that is quite nice of Netflix to actually let you access other Netflix regions with the same subscription. If you compare it with Amazon Prime, then Netflix is way nicer. To access Amazon Prime content in the UK you need a subscription in the UK. To access US Prime content, you need a prime subscription in the USA. With Netflix, one subscription is enough to access Netflix in all nations. The only you need to access Netflix in another country is therefore either a VPN that will give you access to the nation, or to actually move and physically reside in that given nation.

  7. Thanks for your comment. I follow the instructions here as well (using StrongVPN), and now I am watching Suits on English Netflix!! Thanks

  8. Just tried it with HideMyAss and it works as of today (October 3). Might not work tomorrow, but hope it will! Things change awfully quickly.

  9. Thanks for these instructions! I wanted to watch Suits season 7 and noticed in your article that it could be seen on UK Netflix, so I followed your instructions to watch UK Netflix and now I can stream the new episodes every single week. Thanks a lot, and glad to find a site that is updated with info, not only about how to access American Netflix, but several other regions as well!

  10. HideMyAss worked for a few months with US Netflix, but it seems to have stopped. There are however other methods working, so just read through the instructions in this article, or read the designated article on how to access US Netflix, and you will find a working method right away!

  11. Just wanted to watch HideMyAss with US Netflix, but it doesn’t work. A few weeks ago it worked… do you know anything?

  12. You are totally correct. I updated this article a few days ago to reflect the fact that ExpressVPN no longer work with Netflix in England, but it still works with Netflix in the USA and some other regions here and there.

  13. Just wanted to watch Netflix in England with ExpressVPN, but doesn’t seem to work. Am I doing something wrong, or isn’t it working anymore?

  14. I just followed your instructions and signed up for HideMyAss. I connected to the Liberty Island server, and guess what… it works! I can now stream great content on US Netflix in Europe, and in about two weeks I can stream Star Wars: Rogue One on US Netflix as well.. Thanks for keeping the article updated!

    1. Hey James,
      I just wanted to tell everyone else that when this comment it was written, it was true, but as of now, it seems as if HideMyAss no longer work with US Netflix. I have updated the article to reflect this information, and I no longer recommend HIdeMyAss for the purpose of streaming Netflix in the US anymore.

  15. Hi Martin,
    thank you for asking! Netflix is as of today unavailable in China, meaning that the video streaming service is not available in the country. China has other video services, but has not opened the doors for Amazon Prime nor Netflix. But, it is possible to use a VPN like described in this article, and if you follow the methods mentioned in this article you should be able to stream Netflix in China! I suggest that you have your VPN subscription in order before traveling to China so that you are ready from the first minute.

    If you have trouble, simply contact ExpressVPN (or PureVPN) or your VPN provider and ask them for specific help, but I do believe you should be able to fix this without any such help!

  16. Is it possible to stream US Netflix in China? I trust your article, but I have heard so much about how it is hard to get access to international content in China, and that China has a big firewall blocking access to Instagram, Facebook etc… What about Netflix in China? Do they have Netflix at all in China? Can I stream US Netflix in China?

  17. Good morning TJ,

    there are loads of websites out there with information on how to stream Netflix and get access to other Netflix regions that are completely out of date, so your question is 100% valid. Luckily this site is not like those, as I continuously test the methods described and also use them myself. You can therefore try them and feel safe, as these methods will work and help you get access to other Netflix regions easily.

  18. Are these instructions still working? So many VPN providers are blocked, and my provider just blocked me out from Netflix. Are the providers described here really working? Is the information here up to date?

  19. i’m using purevpn but it doesnt seem to be working on netflix since I keep getting the M7111-1331-5059 error code. any suggestions?

    1. Hey there, I just followed these instructions myself to check it out based on your comment, and currently I am watching The Jungle Book on US Netflix… maybe you should contact the PureVPN support for more help?

  20. I suggest that you contact their customer service and ask them for advice and help. If it doesn’t work, ask for a refund! πŸ™‚

  21. I am in the USA and would like to watch Dutch netfllix. I downloaded the program, changed my location to Amsterdam.. but I get the following message…

    This site can’t be reached refused to connect.
    Checking the connection
    Checking the proxy and the firewall

  22. if you are using purevpn you need to set the network server device for purevpn to the DNS name:

    and you also need to select the security setting of remote/dedi IP in the purevpn app.

  23. Don’t know at the moment πŸ™‚ Guess you will have to stay with the Netflix region you are currently in, or maybe go for US Netflix!

  24. You should probably go for a solution in which you use a VPN to access US Netflix. That should still work and thus you can continue watching whatever you started watching in UAE!

  25. Hi ! I don’t miss Netflix in UAE as such, but just that I had subscribed to it while in the UAE and would like to continue watching some of the episodes during my frequent trips to China. When I try to access it in China, it says Netflix not available in your country yet !

  26. Just visit and go ahead and watch! If you want access to US Netflix in Greece, follow the instructions at the top of this article!

  27. StrongVPN has not been working for some time now and no workaround available; Proxy errors also from Geflix and Unlocator.

    1. I tried StrongVPN just now and it works. Tried ExpressVPN a few hours ago and that worked as well. Should be easy to get access to US Netflix if you want to πŸ™‚

      1. just finished setting up a wrt1900acs with expressvpn firmware and it is giving me the proxy error… it was working before with the manual DNS… how frustrating

        1. I suggest you contact ExpressVPN on this issue. Maybe you are connected to a server that is not working with your router, and it could be modified?

  28. Take a look at the different articles to find information about the region you are interested in watching while in Cape Verde πŸ™‚ Or give the Netflix there a try first, and then consider changing region!

  29. Hi there
    Clearly from looking at your other posts you can only recieve the Netflix content in that particular country. I’m going to Cape Verde in a week, what would you advise?
    Thankyou in advance
    Donna πŸ™‚

  30. As far as I know Netflix should be available in Belize… so should work on your laptop or phone or tablet, just notice that you will only enjoy access to whatever is available on Netflix in Belize πŸ™‚

  31. I will be vacationing in Belize and our hotel will not have a tv. Can I watch Netflix from there? I wasn’t able to use it in Costa Rica but I didn’t even realize it until we were there.

  32. Khurram is here!
    Hi all of you thanks for this comments
    I just want to know I have Netflix in uk can I have accessed in Pakistan and Saudia if I go and visit and I can use same accounts

  33. Yes, you can πŸ™‚ But, notice that you will not get access to the Norwegian content, only the Netflix content available to the people in the Philippines!

  34. Hi!
    I have a netflix account in Norway and gonna travel to the Philippines. Can I use my norwegian netflix account there?
    Thank you!

  35. Just open and you can watch Netflix in the Czech Republic. To access another Netflix region follow the instructions in the different articles on the top in this article!

  36. If you want to watch Netflix using a VPN subscription as described in many of these articles you will have to pay for that, in addition to your existing Netflix subscription.

  37. Coming up in a few days πŸ™‚ Until then you could consider Australia which is very similar to New Zealand, but will post an article on watching New Zealand Netflix from abroad as well soon!

  38. I am not 100% sure, but what exactly do you miss about Netflix in UAE? Follow these instructions to access UK Netflix instead, as I believe you will find everything there that is in UAE as well, just much more… Would that work for you?

  39. Why would you want access to Netflix in Saudi Arabia? Not to be rude, but there is not really much stuff there, so you can get the same content plus much more in almost any other region! πŸ™‚

  40. I have my Netflix account in UAE, I am in UK right now and my Netflix is working fine. Is it my UAE Netflix or UK’s?

  41. Version 1:
    Could not find aywhere to write :
    write the following server into the field:

        1. You can manually add this server on your iPad or add it as a dedicated IP in the PureVPN app on iPad, but it doesn’t seem to work anyway. As far as I know Netflix has added some block in their Netflix application that makes this not working, even if the IP address you get should be working. I will look into this, I think ExpressVPN should be working with US Netflix, at least on Android (can not guarantee it though), but I would ask their customer service first. I would also contact the PureVPN customer service to hear if they can help you out!

          1. netflix isn’t working anymore. I’m using express vpn and can’t access it.. code 10012 proxy error

          2. I suggest you ask ExpressVPN and their support. If they can’t help, maybe you will have to try another solution instead, but I do think ExpressVPN should have a working solution somewhere! πŸ™‚

  42. You can watch Netflix in Luxembourg, but if you want to gain access to different regions, follow one of the instructions and guides available on this site!

  43. Hello! Your Netflix subscription will work in Spain, but you will loose English subtitles and in some cases English audio, but not necessarily. There will also be some modifications concerning what is available on Spanish Netflix vs UK Netflix.

  44. Any idea how to obtain Net flix from MAURITIUS please. Also where do I need to have a subscription , UK would be ok for me
    Thanx Richard

    1. Follow the instructions in this article. If you do not yet have a Netflix subscription simply visit to sign up. If you can not sign up at your current location follow the instructions in this article to get access to US Netflix and once you have done so, sign up first for an account and then go ahead and watch!

  45. I’m visiting Mallorca from UK. Will my UK subscription cover me in Spain? Will the audio be English or Spanish?

  46. You can use your Netflix account in Croatia, but you will get access to Croatian Netflix while in Croatia. That means you will not see the same material available as you do when you visit in the States, in the UK or wherever you live. To get access to your original Netflix region follow the instructions on how to get access to the different Netflix regions.

  47. Netflix will of course work, and if it is in the Netherlands I guess you will access Dutch Netflix. If you want to change to another country, follow the instructions at the top of this article!

  48. You can watch Netflix in Thailand, but you will only get access to Thai Netflix, meaning that lots of the content available in the US, in Canada or in the UK will not be available there. To get access to such Netflix content in Thailand, follow the instructions in the different articles linked to at the top of this article!

  49. Yes, it will work, but you will only get access to Greek Netflix. If you want to get access to Netflix content in other regions, follow the instructions found on the top of this article.

  50. Hi – I was watching the series Suits with my son in South Africa on Netflix but can’t view it here – can you post access to South Africa?

  51. Netflix is available in Morocco, but notice that you will only get access to whatever is available on Netflix in Morocco (which is quite different from US Netflix, Canadian Netflix and so on). If you want to get access to material in some other Netflix region follow the instructions in one of the articles which can be found on this site).

  52. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that a VPN provider and its services will last for an unlimited amount of time, so there is little that can be done. You could ask their customer service, but if you use Hotspot Shield then you can still use that to access some other Netflix regions as well.

  53. I purchased Netflix from the US and had to subscribe Hotspot in order for to watch Netflix movies in the Philippines. The first few months it went well and I gave up watching due to the fact that I can no longer watched Netflix movies. Every now and then I’d try but it keeps giving me “whoops…and an error code. Now I’m getting streaming and something to do with “blocker”. I’m not a computer literate.
    How can I get to use what I’ve paid for, for a year, when it keeps blocking me?

  54. I use ExpressVPN but it doesnt seem to be working on netflix since I keep getting the M7111-1331-5059 error code. any suggestions?

  55. You do not need an extra Netflix subscription in order to watch Netflix in France, but you can use your current subscription. But, as you visit Netflix while in France you will get access to French Netflix and not Irish Netflix. If you want to get access to US Netflix while in France or in Ireland, follow these instructions:

  56. Hi i am signed up to Netflix in Ireland. I am going to Fraance this Wednesday on Holidays. If I could get access to my Netfiix there would be really great. would you be able to help with that please??

    Alternatively, accessing the US netflix would work for me too!.. but Im not signed up to that.

  57. I’m based in UK but going to Czech republic for 2 weeks. Any way to watch Netflix there?

    1. That’s a great question, but not that I know of. It is hard enough to find a working method that you have to pay for, so do not think there are good working methods available 100% for free.

    2. Google for ChillGlobal. They give you 20 hours a month for free. And it’s fast. But from my location, only US netflix works. If I want to watch Australian (they have Interstellar) then it is blocked. So I guess ChillGlobal will soon be blocked as well.

  58. What do you want to know? Would you like to access Netflix in UAE from some other nation?

  59. i have the same proxy problem, i live in the Marshall Islands and my netflix on my ps4 works but all my other tablets and tv’s doesn’t work. any advice

  60. I was in Norway and logged into my Netflix account. I added a lot of movies to my list that were available there, but now back in the US, they are no longer listed anymore. How can I see those on my list again?

  61. You open, press My Account and then under the Membership and Billing section you will see on the right a grey button saying “Cancel Membership.” πŸ™‚

  62. I am having problem finding a solution to this, but I will look further into it and create an article as soon as I have a solution!

  63. I would like to have access to Get access to Netflix Fr (French Netflix). Do you know how I can do that?

  64. It seems as if it is hard to get this working with Unlocator now as well. But, please follow what’s written on our front page as we constantly update it with information on how you can watch Netflix in different regions! Unlocator is not a good option at the moment, but there are other options!

  65. Even after setting up DNS with Unlocator, I still cannot watch my US English Netflix in Spain. This is crap!

  66. Running into the same problem – have a NL subscription, but traveling outside the NL, I can’t access the NL content (with NL subtitling, etc) anymore.
    Talking to Netflix support, this they claim this is done because it’s a legal issue, however this is TOTALLY INCORRECT. As a NL citizen, with a NL account, I have a legal right to see NL content, even if I am in a different country. (This comparable with television content, e.g Canaldigital, where you can take your (satellite) subscription and travel within Europe on holidays, etc).
    Can understand that there are commercial reasons to release content per region/country, however what is currently happening is that Netflix denies a person access to it’s own countries content, based on the location that the person is currently at.

    This is specifically Netflix madness ..

  67. The madness is not from Netflix, but from big movie business; they want to protect their stupid way to distribute movies around the world. As always, it is only a way to squeeze as much money as possible from the public.

    However, Netflix, as a streaming service is beyond and ahead of regions and SHOULD be trying to protect the people who send them their moneys every single month to pay for the streaming services.

    There is no sustainable reason why Person ABC in the USA should have a β€œright” to watch Movie MNL before Person XYZ has the same right in Country KBC. All the people in the world who pay the fees they are requested to pay should have the same rights concerning the contents to watch.

    Netflix is being pressured from the Big Movie Business for the Monopoly Money Sqeezing Game. This should end soon, but only if and International Equal Rights Commission is presented, understood and respected as deserved.

  68. If you want to watch in France I recommend that you try Unlocator first and setup their DNS service and set your Netflix region to France. Or if you are in France use Unlocator and set the Netflix region to USA (Usa 1, Usa 2) and you will be able to watch US Netflix in France πŸ™‚

  69. So I’m confused…it says it serves France, so if I am going to France, can I get to my US based Netflix account or do I still need the PureBPN app?

  70. The thing that really sucks. I travel and I can’t even watch the catalog of shows available in the country I am in. Two hotels, my work and my apartment. I can’t stream netflix because they say the ISP is using a VPN. They went a step too far in the madness. So, basically can’t watch from a hotel anymore… πŸ™

  71. Glad you were able to arrange it:) Have you found a way to watch Netflix in El Salvador, or are you still looking?

  72. Please, no need to publish my previous comment. I have been able to handle the issue with PureVPN

  73. Just wanted to say that Unlocator is updating servers all the time, so you should try again, because I believe they are working in most Netflix regions again! πŸ™‚

  74. I have noticed… I will update the article within shortly with some even more updated information! And Unlocator is also working on solving the issues!
