Since most people with a registered Netflix account live in the United States, it is very likely that those of you reading this Q&A are Americans with a Netflix account currently located elsewhere in the world. However of course there are also people with Netflix accounts in Austria, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Holland, Spain, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Brazil, Poland, Australia and Sweden so this information will also be valid for you, explaining you how to watch Netflix from abroad.
Since you subscribe to Netflix in a certain country, lets just say the United States, you get access to all movies, series and services included in the Netflix service. This is a product available in the United States, but if you live or spend a longer period of time in Spain for example, you will not be able to sign up for Netflix, because it is unavailable in the country. Hence, you will not be able to access your Netflix account, because of copyright regulations. Netflix only has the rights to broadcast products included in the Netflix subscription to people located in the United States, so as you go abroad, you will loose those rights, even if you have a valid subscription.
The solution is to get yourself an American IP address (or a German, Austrian, Spanish, Belgium, UK, all based on in which nation you have a subscription. An IP address is your virtual address, and it will tell any website where you are currently located. As you visit the Netflix website they will control your location, and if you are outside the nation in which you have a subscription, you will see an error message like the one mentioned earlier. The solution is therefore to get an IP address in the nation in which you have an account, and luckily that is very easy to get!
To get yourself a new IP address and to watch Netflix from abroad the solution is to install the ChillGlobal smart-plugin within 20 seconds for your web browser. We offer you a free monthly usage trial of 20 hours and we don't require credit card details, just an email address, Facebook account or Google+ login. We will let you connect to our servers located in each of our participating countries. As you connect to a server in the UK all your online traffic will be made through our UK server, making it look as if it origins in the United Kingdom, regardless of your own location! In other words, if you connect to a server in the United States, regardless of your own location, you will get yourself an American IP address, and thus you will be able to go around the geo-blocked content from Netflix, and you will be able to enjoy your Netflix subscription at once!
Get access to hundreds of TV channels, social media, e-commerce and travel sites. Our service works perfectly with services like Netflix, BBC, Facebook, YouTube, NBC, Amazon, eBay, Sky Go, Hulu, Spotify, ABC, SVT, TV4, and many more!
