Netflix is awesome but did you know that depending on what country you’re in the catalogue of movies and TV shows can vary widely?
In this guide I’ll be showing you the simple steps how you can watch Hong Kong Netflix overseas allowing you to watch your favourite shows and movies regardless of where you are in the world.
For this you’ll need a VPN service. I recommend ExpressVPN because they’re one of few that work with Hong Kong Netflix.
So if you want to watch Hong Kong Netflix in any country read below to find out how you can.
How to watch Hong Kong Netflix overseas
To watch Hong Kong Netflix overseas is actually really easy. To do this you’ll need a VPN app.
A VPN allows you to change your location so you can pretend you’re somewhere else. There are now hundreds of VPN companies which gives you a lot of choices.
Unfortunately most don’t work. I tried 15 different companies and found the only one that worked with Hong Kong Netflix was ExpressVPN.
Follow the steps below where I’ll show you how you can get ExpressVPN and how to use it to watch Hong Kong Netflix.
How to watch Hong Kong Netflix overseas:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website by clicking here, choose a subscription length and sign up for their service.
- Once you’ve signed up download their app from the ‘Products’ section of their website.
- Open the app and login with your account details or activate it.
- Select the Choose Location (1) option.
- Then press All (2), Asia Pacific (3) and finally select Hong Kong (4).
- The app will automatically connect for you but if it doesn’t press the Connect button.
- When it’s connected visit the Netflix website or open the Netflix app.
Now you’re connected to the VPN service from ExpressVPN any apps you use or websites you visit think you’re in Hong Kong.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on mainland China, in Japan, in Australia, the UK, America or anywhere else.
Netflix thinks you’re in Hong Kong so lets you access the Hong Kong Netflix catalogue.
You can also access other Hong Kong TV services such as TVB.
When you’ve finished watching Netflix disconnect from the VPN app and everything returns to normal. You can reconnect as many times as you wish as there are no limits or restrictions.

Can I watch on my mobile, tablet or other device?
Definitely, the solution above works for all kinds of devices.
It’s easiest to watch on a regular computer or laptop because you don’t need any additional apps. However, you can easily watch on your tablet or phone too, just make sure you have the Netflix app installed.
If you’ve got an Amazon Fire TV or Firestick then you’ll also be able to use this to watch Hong Kong Netflix overseas. Simply download the ExpressVPN app from the Amazon store and use it to watch Hong Kong Netflix.
How does a VPN work?
A VPN works by sending your request to the country before it’s sent to the service.
What this means is rather than your request going from you wherever you are in the world directly to Netflix, it first goes to Hong Kong.
It is then passed onto Netflix.
The Netflix site only sees a request from Hong Kong and so lets you watch the Hong Kong Netflix selection.
If you were in America for example and you tried to visit Netflix you would be sent straight to the American Netflix website. A VPN acts like a middleman between you and Netflix passing data back and forth.
The great news is it’s all automatic so you won’t even notice this happening.

What about free VPN services?
You might have heard of ‘free’ VPN services and wonder why you can’t just get one of them instead of paying for ExpressVPN.
The problem with ‘free’ VPN services is there are just too many users trying to use them. This means they’re blocked by Netflix. They’re also incredibly slow which makes streaming video completely out of the question.
You will also want to consider your privacy. If you’re not paying for the service then they’re making money somehow and that’s often by sucking up data on you and your usage and selling it.
ExpressVPN has a really good deal where if you take their 12-month package you get 3-months completely free. This makes it 49% cheaper than paying on a monthly basis. For just a couple of US dollars you can access the Hong Kong Netflix site in any country with good speeds making it definitely worth it.
If you want my advice, skip the supposedly ‘free’ VPN services and stump up a couple of dollars for a premium service from ExpressVPN.
