How to Change your Netflix Region – Watching Netflix from Other Countries
You hear in all the time that people are watching US Netflix in Canada or other places outside of the United States. How are they doing it and is it hard?
When you have a Netflix account- Netflix decides which content to show you based on where you are physically located.
If I am in Ireland i will get Irish Netflix. If I am in Mexico I will get Mexican Netflix content.
If I am in the US- I will be able to get US Netflix content.
By fooling Netflix into thinking you are in different countries – you can access most of the available content Netflix has to offer.
Is it hard to do? Not really. It takes about 15 minutes. If you can set up a wireless router you can watch Us Netflix in Canada or anywhere!
The way to do this is to manually route your internet traffic though an America proxy account.
Sound complicated? It is.
Fortunately -there are several services available that do all this for you and make it as easy as a couple fo mouse clicks.
