How to watch American Netflix

If you’ve been wondering how you can watch American Netflix in 2017 then we’ve got the info you’re after.

American Netflix is pretty amazing, it has over 50% more movies and 50% more TV shows than nearly every other Netflix region in the world.

If you’ve got a Canadian, British, Australian Netflix account or even an account for any other country it means you’re getting less than half the content that American Netflix viewers are.

The good news is there is a really simple way to watch American Netflix with your standard Netflix package and in the guide below we’re going to show you how you can achieve that in 2017.

How to watch American Netflix in 2017

To watch American Netflix just follow the simple instructions below:

  1. Visit the VPN provider VyprVPN by clicking here.
  2. Sign-up to their service. (You can get a completely free 3-day trial to test the service)
  3. Download their Windows or Mac software from their website under the “VPN Apps” section.
  4. Install, Run and Log In when required.
  5. Select a United States server (1. & 2.) and press Connect (3.).VyprVPN US Server

It should take about 15 – 30 seconds for the VyprVPN software to make connection.

Once the VyprVPN software says it is connected you can visit the Netflix website like normal.

Upon logging in you will now be connected to the American Netflix website.

You can now browse and watch all the available movies and TV shows. A good example to search to make sure it is working is for “Breaking Bad” which is only available on the American Netflix website.

What is a VPN?

A VPN is a small piece of software for your computer that allows you to protect your online privacy.

One of the privacy protecting features is allowing you to disguise your online location.

When you visit the Netflix website it knows what country you’re in and serves you up the local version of the website.

With a VPN you can alter your online location to America so when connected to a VPN rather than getting your local Netflix website you instead get access to the American one.

Alternative VPN Services

If you don’t want to sign up to VyprVPN mentioned above there are a few other VPN services working with Netflix so you may want to try:

The process is exactly the same with these providers, you simply download their software and connect to a United States server.

You thought Netflix blocked VPN services

At the start of 2016, Netflix started blocking VPN services from accessing the American version of the website.

This was quite successful and nearly all VPN services were blocked.

As time has gone on VPN services have again started to work with the service. Providers like VyprVPN have been working from as far back as August 2016 right up until today.

So while there is a large portion of VPN providers still blocked there are a handful that work and have been working for some time.

Just select one from our recommended list above and you can be enjoying American Netflix within minutes.
