How to Watch US Netflix Using a VPN Right Away
Can't see the region-restricted US shows you want to watch on Netflix? I had the same issue when I was traveling in Europe a couple of years ago. Why shouldn't I be able to view the shows I've paid to see? Well, that's a complicated story.
What isn't complicated, however, is the way I could have easily solved the problem of not being able to watch the US shows on Netflix. Use a VPN!
Skip ahead to step 1, if you want to get started right away.
What is a VPN?
A VPN is a virtual private network that changes your browsing location and encrypts your data. To learn more about this, see our guide that details VPNs in depth.
Which VPN should I use?
The best VPN for watching US shows on Netflix is NordVPN. It's been tested countless times and continues to work like a charm. There are other VPNs out there you can use, but many have mixed results. And NordVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee—so signup for 1 month and then just cancel your account to get your money back when you're done. This essentially makes it free.
Does this really work?
Yes! We've tested it using NordVPN. The same steps will work for other streaming services like Disney+ and BBC iPlayer too.
