Netflix is one of the most successful and useful services currently available. While it started as a DVD-by-mail service (still active under a different name) it is now the most popular streaming service on the market. It is available in more than 100 countries and offers a variety of content that will certainly satisfy even the most pretentious users.
Due to copyright and licensing restrictions, the selection of movies and shows varies from country to country. In order to gain access to restricted content, you will have to use a VPN.
How VPNs work
A VPN is usually used in order to browse the web without being tracked by sites that wish to show targeted advertising. It employs a custom encryption solution that sends your data through a secure server in order to keep your browsing habits private.
They are particularly useful if you have to use a connection that filters certain types of content (for example a library Wi-Fi won’t allow you to play online video games) and keeps your traffic private when the network is shared with other users.
In some cases the VPN will also include additional features. One of them is the ability to change your location, allowing you to access websites that are blocked in your country. In the case of Netflix you can use the VPN in order to access content that isn’t available where you live.
The problem is that Netflix isn’t very pleased by this since in some cases the content is blocked due to legal reason. The service is constantly updating its security protocols in order to thwart VPN users from accessing restricted content.
A well-known has recently shared a survey. 59 VPNs where tested across PC, iOS and Android in 30 countries. Out of them only one VPN was able to unblock content on all the platforms and in every country.
NordVPN is an efficient VPN solution that will enhance your Netflix experience while also keeping your system safe. The program can be downloaded from its official website and a variety of subscription options are available.
