What is Netflix, and how can I watch it?

If you’ve never heard the phrase Netflix and chill or about any of the most talked-about TV in the world, then you’re missing a treat.

Netflix has become one of the biggest household names in the way we watch television. It’s one of the most significant on-demand streaming services in the world.

As mighty an entity as it has become, it started life in video rental, offering a mail order service of VHS tapes. Our younger readers won’t remember those, but they should remember the DVDs they switched over to.

Since then, Netflix has grown into a billion-dollar Fortune 500 company, with outlets in over 190 countries, and a net income of $1.8 billion.

Not only has it changed the way we pay for and view our content, but it’s also made waves throughout the industry by producing its own award-winning programs. And what programs they are. They’re setting standards for others to follow, making television that’s changing viewing habits and pushing boundaries.

Netflix Originals soon become the in-shows to watch. If you haven’t seen Tiger King, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black or Mindhunter—well, it’s about time you did.

There are over 6,000 titles currently available, and amongst them, some of the best viewing you could wish for.

It’s easy to see why Netflix is one of the biggest names in the world of TV and movie media, and why others are so eager to follow in their footsteps.

How can I watch Netflix Canada with StreamLocator?

We provide a system that makes Netflix think you’re in Canada, wherever you might be in the world.

By doing this, it opens up all the unique programming that’s only available to Canadian residents and allows you to watch it as easily as the content from your own country.

No complicated settings or software installation required

With StreamLocator, there’s no software to install on your computers or devices, and no server settings to change or juggle. Once it’s plugged in and activated, it’s always on, working quietly for you in the background.

It works perfectly with any smartphone, tablet, or portable device, as well as your desktop and laptop Macs and PCs. You can skip countries on your games consoles and access viewing in other regions on your Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku and Apple TV. However you stream your media online, it works with those too.

You’ll have the same connectivity as your existing WiFi, and you can join with as many devices as you need. Each device can access a different service in a different country, while StreamLocator handles the location switch for every one of them.

Our hardware comes with your subscription and plugs into any available port of your existing WiFi router. It doesn’t impact your Internet speed in any way at all, nor does it interfere with any of your online activities.

How to watch Netflix Canada from outside Canada

To make sure viewers operate within their own regions, Netflix uses geolocation technology to find out where their viewers are, and direct them to the appropriate service.

Some viewing, however, is only available in specific countries. To get access to them, you need to switch your location and make Netflix servers think you’re where they need you to be. The most common ways to do that are by activating VPN or Smart DNS services.

How to register for Netflix Canada from outside Canada

The beauty of the StreamLocator system, when watching Netflix, is that you can use any account to log in to other country’s content. Once you’ve switched the StreamLocator location to Canada, logging in is just as easy as it is for your own country’s content.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Netflix Canada from outside Canada?

VPN and DNS are the standard workarounds for masking locations or making servers see them in another country. Up until now, you’d need to use one of those options to access geographically restricted viewing.

Businesses are getting much better at detecting these technologies, though, so one service might work better than another for a particular website, and perform poorly on another.

We’re not saying that these aren’t clever ways to get around the system; what we’re saying is that they each have their limitations.

StreamLocator is different. Our system combines multiple methods of accessing servers and blocking or switching your location. That way, we ensure that you always get connected and by the best manner possible. And it takes care of everything automatically, so you don’t even know all that clever stuff is happening.

How to unblock Netflix Canada

Getting to watch Canadian Netflix is incredibly easy with StreamLocator. Once you’ve plugged in our smart router and registered your account, you should be able to connect to whichever version of Netflix you like.

If your connection doesn’t happen right away or is redirected to your country’s version, we’ve got an extra fix—just in case. All you have to do is browse to the router panel and click the streaming tab. There is a list of Netflix countries to choose from. Select Canada, and that's that. This ensures your connection. We told you it was easy.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Netflix Canada for free?

Sadly, you’ll need to pay for a subscription for each different Netflix country you’d like to stream from. It’s pretty easy to set up, though, and it’s a rolling month-to-month system, so you only have to pay for what you want, when you want.
