You’ve spent many hours sprawled out on the couch with your tablet and in your train seat with your phone. It’s done: you’ve finished Netflix! However, we have news for you: Did you know that American Netflix has hundreds of streams that cannot be found in the service’s Dutch library? And that there is an easy way to watch these streams in the Netherlands? This is possible with a virtual private network (VPN).
What is a VPN?
A VPN protects your online data from hackers and viewers by establishing an encrypted connection between your personal internet connection and a secure server. This gives the impression that you are connected to the internet from an unknown location. Your IP address remains hidden and your data remains safe. This fact alone is a great reason to use a VPN, but what does all of this have to do with your shortest path to more shows and movies on Netflix?
Travel the United States virtually
The trick to being able to watch US Netflix from the Netherlands is in being able to change your IP address to a US address with a VPN. After you connect to a server in America via the VPN, Netflix thinks this is your actual location, and therefore offers their entire American collection, normally hidden from the Dutch, without a whisper. Does this sound complicated to you? It’s not that. The most reputable VPN providers offer easy-to-use apps for your tablet and phone, which connect you to the Promised Land of Netflix in two minutes with just a few clicks.
How to choose the right VPN?
Of Netflix VPN comes in many shapes and sizes. There are paid versions, as well as free options. Most of all, you obviously want a VPN that gives access to US servers. If you want to watch on your tablet or phone, it is important that the VPN provider supports your platform. Fortunately, every reliable VPN has apps for Android, iOS, and many other operating systems available. Other important factors are the speed of the VPN servers and any data limits. Again, the most popular VPNs offer very suitable speeds for streams and allow you to send and receive unlimited data.
