Christmas is the time of year to snuggle down into the sofa, get yourself a hot drink and binge watch Christmas movies.
You can never get enough Christmas movies at this time of year but finding ones you want to watch versus the ones shown on regular TV can be the tricky part.
This is where Netflix comes into play. The ever-so-popular streaming service is the first place you should turn at this time of year to get your festive fix.
However, depending on where you are in the world depends on what selection of Christmas movies you get access to.
There is however a way to get even more Christmas movies on Netflix and below I’m going to show you how.
How to get more Christmas movies
Did you know that depending on what country you’re in depends on what selection of movies and TV shows you get access to on Netflix?
The United States has one of the best selections with only the Japanese Netflix site being host to more.
Ordinarily, you can’t change what region you watch but by using a ‘VPN‘ app you change your virtual-location so you appear in another country.
This result is you get access to an overseas Netflix website, such as the American one giving you a whole host more Christmas movies.
If you’re in the US already then you can access the Canadian, British or Australian Netflix sites to get a completely different selection of Christmas movies.
What you need to get more Christmas movies
You’ll need to get yourself a VPN app to watch more Christmas movies. There are many out there but my top 3 recommendations are:
There are plenty of other choices too like VPNHub, IPVanish, PrivateInternetAccess and VyprVPN but not all work with Netflix so you need to choose one that does.
My recommended choice is ExpressVPN because they’re easy to use and come with a 30-day money back guarantee. They’re also 49% cheaper if you sign up for a year rather than pay on a monthly basis.

How to use the VPN to get more movies
Once you’ve decided on a VPN app from above you’ll need to download it and connect to the country of your choice.
If you’re outside the United States then I recommend you connect there, but if you’re inside the States you should try connecting to another country like Canada or the United Kingdom.
Below I’ve put together a step-by-step guide to show you exactly how to do this.
How to watch more Christmas Movies on Netflix:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website by clicking here and sign up.
- Download the correct app for your device.
- Open the app and login with your account details.
- Press the ‘Choose Location‘ (1) button.
- Then press select a country, I recommend ‘United States‘ (2) but you can try others too.
- You may need to press ‘Connect‘ (3) if the app doesn’t automatically connect for you.
- It will take between 15-30 seconds for the app to connect.
- Once it’s connected visit the Netflix website or open the Netflix app like normal.
You’ll now have access to a completely different region of Netflix.
This means you will have access to a completely different range of movies. You can now start searching for those Christmas gems, turn up the heating and disappear into your sofa whilst getting in the festive mood.
It’s also worth having a look around for other non-Christmas movies because you’ll be able to watch those too.
What devices can I watch on
Most VPN services work on all the most popular devices.
ExpressVPN, for example, works on Android and Apple iOS phones and tablets, Windows and Mac OS computers and even the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
This means you can binge-watch Christmas movies on any of these devices.

Can I just use any VPN?
Unfortunately, not all VPN apps are built the same.
While some allow you to hop borders and watch Netflix from around the world, other’s don’t.
Some of the worst offenders are ‘free’ VPN services. These certainly don’t work with Netflix because too many users are crammed onto them trying to access Netflix.
Even some paid-for VPN services don’t work with Netflix so it’s important to choose one that does.
In Summary: How to get more Christmas movies
If you’ve got a Netflix account then there’s a way to get even more Netflix movies.
For this, you’ll need to get a VPN app from ExpressVPN.
This allows you to access other regions of Netflix, for example, the American or British website. Each site has a different selection of movies which includes Christmas movies you don’t already have access to.
Sign up for ExpressVPN and download their app. Then connect to another country, for example the United States. Now login to Netflix and you’ll have a brand new selection of Christmas movies to watch while munching your way through a box of chocolates (go on, it’s Christmas after all).
My favourite Christmas movie is 1985’s Santa Claus: The Movie. I would love to hear which Christmas movie is your favourite so drop me a note in the comment section below.
