What is Netflix, and how can I watch it?

Netflix is one of the most significant TV and movie streaming services in the world. In 2007, its online service launched in the US, and, 7 years later, in 2014, they expanded their viewing to France.

Netflix is available in over 190 countries to date. It’s easier to say which countries don’t have Netflix; its availability covers practically all of the world.

This Fortune 500 company, with its $1.8 billion net income, is one of our viewing staples when it comes to TV.

Not satisfied with streaming existing and shared programs, in 2011, Netflix began to acquire content purely for its own platform. Since that time, Netflix continues to strive for an original content-led service.

Not only does it produce its own TV—it produces great TV. Netflix Originals are some of the most talked-about shows the world over. Often changing the way we watch, utilizing technology in different ways to anyone else, and approaching subjects and topics where others fear or haven’t thought to tread.

If you want to catch some of the best original programming on Netflix France, then Marianne, Call My Agent (Dix Pour Cent), The Hookup Plan (Plan Coeur) or La Mante should be on your list.

With around 6,000 available titles, Netflix has enough shows and movies to keep anyone from getting bored.

How can I watch Netflix France with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator makes watching Netflix, wherever you are, and whichever country’s catalogue you want to access, a piece of cake.

It uses cutting-edge technology techniques to make Netflix think that you’re in France, switching your actual location, and accessing all that glorious television.

No complicated settings or software installation required

Unlike many of the alternative services used to access overseas TV, StreamLocator doesn't require you to install a single piece of software or plugin. You won’t have to change any of your DNS or IP settings either. It takes all the tricky tech issues out of the process for its users, with a super-simple plug-and-play system.

Once you’ve set up our router, it will work with every device you need. All you have to do is set the WiFi network to STREAMLOCATOR. It’s that easy.

You’ll automatically be able to stream content from services throughout the world onto your Android or Apple Smartphones, Mac or PC, any gaming console, Smart TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku or Apple TV. It’s that versatile.

You can connect as many devices as you like, too—there’s no limit. And, each device can access a different stream in a different country. StreamLocator manages all the connections at the same time, so nobody misses their favourite show.

It’s always on and working in the background. Your Internet speeds won’t be affected, and you can connect from anywhere in your home—just as you would with your regular WiFi.

You won’t even know it’s working, it’s so good. Integration is seamless and efficient. We believe it’s the best system you’ll find on the market today.

How to watch Netflix France from other countries

Netflix uses geolocation technology to find out where you are and redirect you to the appropriate service for your country. But, if you’re in America or Canada and you want to watch some of the new French programming that’s only available to the French, well, that’s just not fair, is it?

VPN and Smart DNS disguise your location to access geo-blocked channels, but they’re not always as reliable as they claim. If you want to watch Netflix France, though, you will have to change your location, one way or another.

Note that due to the EU's new portability regulation - watching Netflix France may not be possible if your Netflix account is based in the EU.

How to register for Netflix France from outside the country

If you’ve got a Netflix account already, then all you have to do is switch over your location in the StreamLocator router panel. With that taken care of, your existing Netflix account will provide you with all the access you need to the French content.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Netflix France from outside the country?

You will need some method of location masking—and so far, VPN and Smart DNS are the most popular ways to beat the system.

Each system has its advantages and disadvantages. Some will work better with some services and not so great with others. Picking one VPN or DNS switching provider won’t always give you the access to everywhere you need them to work.

That’s where StreamLocator comes into its own. Because it uses a combination of technologies, it always finds the best way to connect you to your content. It communicates with each server without you having to lift a finger, and connects you before you remember it’s even there.

How to unblock Netflix France

Once you switch over from your usual WiFi to the StreamLocator network, then you should have immediate access. If by some chance, you’re still being redirected to your country’s service, then we’ve built in an extra fail-safe to guarantee your connection.

Head to the router panel, select the streaming tab and choose France from the Netflix dropdown. Easy.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Netflix France for free?

Sadly—no. Netflix requires a paid subscription, so you’ll still have to pay.
