How to Watch Everything on Netflix No Matter Where You Live
During my journey to every country in the world, I spent a lot of evenings on my laptop. Working out logistics, making my first $1m blogging, and of course, on Netflix! Now I live in Bangkok, and I’m buying land in Thailand to build my dream home but I don’t want Thai netflix. I want to watch everything on Netflix, anytime! How do I do it?
How to watch everything on Netflix
Here is some good news for you. It is now possible to watch everything on Netflix regardless of where you live. Apart from introducing a new menu loaded with fresh and amazing content; recently, the reputable TV, video and movie streaming hulk extended its reach and coverage to over 130 new countries that could not access it previously.
But that is the end of the good tale. Why? Because different countries can only access different content! The library is not the same for everyone/every region. This is a damper, right? But only if you are not smart, so in this article we are going to show you what you can do to watch everything on the Flix no matter where you live.
But don’t you first want to know why the library is different? I bet you do. Actually, it is not rocket science in Latin, but a mere question of different territorial or regional licensing rules. TV show and movie producers expect fast profit from their creation. To maximize their income, they license their products to content distributors whose bids are the highest.
Netflix is different in every country. Why?
For instance, Netflix will not streamline (this is distribution still) Star Wars to Greenland if they are sure that not many people will watch it. Technically, if no one or just a few people are interested in Star Wars in Greenland, Netflix will not recover the cost of purchasing the distribution rights and making a few extra dollars at the same time.
In a nutshell, regional licensing and the interest of the audience in a particular show, video, movie will determine the kind of library your country will have. Smart chaps when it comes to making a dollar, don’t you think?
You need a VPN, then you can watch Netflix in any country:
And now that you know why, let’s head straight to what should concern you most in this article. How to get access to all libraries on the channel? Accessing the library of another country is really simple. You can use either of these two methods.
- You can use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) – SUPER EASY
- Or you can use a technology called Smart DNS or DNS tunneling. – KINDA COMPLICATED
Is this beginning to sound like ancient Greek? Relax and read on…the two methods will confuse the distributor into thinking that you are watching a show/video/movie from a device that is not located where you are at that moment.
Employing VPN (personally I use Nord VPN)
Using a VPN is as easy as touch and go. All you need to do is this. You can find free ones with ads, limited amount of time, pop-ups ect. I used to do this. Or you can do the right thing, and pay a tiny fee each month and never worry about it again. FINALLY I did this, after years of playing with free ones.
- Find and download a paid or free VPN service on your browser (iOS, Android and other browsers). I use NORD VPN. It’s the biggest and best one.
- The 2 year plan is $3.67 a month. BOOM! AND WITH MY LINK, 3 MONTHS FREE TO START!
- Switch on your VPN after installation.
- Select the country who Netflix Library you wish to access.
- Visit the Netflix website or start the App for Netflix
- Sit back and enjoy.
If this works well for you, come back and we shall show you how to use Smart DNS for Netflix.
