Changing Netflix country or region is easy if you know how. We’ll show you how to watch Netflix content from different countries whatever your location.
There’s a lot of great content on Netflix but much of it is restricted by the country you are in. In fact, the catalog of shows and movies you can view will vary depending on the region you’re in. In some countries, the Netflix library is very limited. For example, if you travel from the US to Spain you will find you have access to far fewer shows and can’t access you usual home streaming services. As such, many people will try to trick Netflix into thinking they are in a different region, such as the US, to regain access to their home country’s library during a trip abroad.
The simplest way to change Netflix region is by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN tunnels your internet traffic through an intermediary server located in a country of your choice. It can mask your real IP address and replace it with one from your chosen country, thus spoofing your current location. This means if you are away from home you can access you usual home country’s streaming services wherever you are. What’s more, a VPN also encrypts all of your traffic so that no one can monitor your activity, not even your ISP.
Once you’re set up with a VPN, getting secure access to the Netflix library you want while traveling abroad (or any streaming service library from back home) is easy.
