What is Netflix, and how can I watch it?

Netflix changed the way we watch TV, almost single-handedly. It’s also paved the way into the type of shows we watch too, with its clever use of technology and uber-quirky subject matter. With its ever-growing selection of Netflix originals, it’s making great strides in dictating what we’re all watching and talking about on social media or in the office.

The streaming service giant is now available in 190 countries around the globe. However, there isn’t one unified catalog of shows for us all to pick through. Of course, programming rights have put paid to such an idea, even though it appears Netflix itself would much prefer a single global system.

That means that there are a lot of shows available to some, yet not to others.

The Netflix catalog in South Korea holds over 4,000 titles. That includes almost 3,000 movies and nearly 1,500 TV series. As you would imagine, there are plenty of shows unique to the culture of the typical South Korean viewer, but there are bags of bang-up-to-date classic international TV and Hollywood blockbusters too.

If you’re looking for Korean movies, try Train to Busan, Okja, or Lucid Dream. If you want something a little more universal, you can watch Kill Bill, The Lion King, or any of the Lord of the Rings movies.

Fancy bingeing some real K-drama? Tune in to Boys Over Flowers, Crash Landing on You, or Kingdom. This is a category of cult TV viewing that’s only going to keep growing.

And now, with StreamLocator, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t tune in to every one of them.

How can I watch South Korean Netflix with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator provides a virtual location so that the South Korean Netflix servers think you’re right where they need you to be. Now you can watch their amazing range of K-drama and movies to your heart’s content.

No complicated settings or software installation required

One of the biggest advantages that StreamLocator heralds over its competition is how simple its system is.

There’s no software to download and install. There are no DNS settings or profiles to amend, update, or create. To think, with other systems, you’d have to install some kind of service or software on every device you plan to access the shows with. Not with StreamLocator. Our hub works with your WiFi router, so every one of your Internet-enabled devices is catered for automatically.

Plug in our smart hub and automatically connect your Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast and games consoles to the blocked content you want. It’s that good.

Connect as many devices as you want—there’s no limit. If you need them to, you can connect each one to a different streaming service in a different country—not a problem.

Your WiFi speeds will remain the same as they always have, and it won’t affect your daily online activities in any way.

How to watch South Korean Netflix from outside South Korea

Streaming services use a system called geolocation tracking to make sure their viewers are in the correct country to appease their program’s viewing rights.

If you want to watch the programs on South Korea’s Netflix catalog, you’re going to need some kind of workaround to get past their location tracking. The most popular methods to do this are to install a VPN or Smart DNS service. That was until StreamLocator, of course.

How to register for South Korean Netflix from outside South Korea

Netflix allows its subscribers to access their system whichever country they’re in. So, if you’re a UK resident visiting the USA, you can watch any of the US programs for as long as you’re in the country.

To watch the Netflix programs available in South Korea, all you have to do is make their servers think that that’s where you are.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch South Korean Netflix from outside South Korea?

VPN and Smart DNS have long been the most typical methods to get around the geolocation blocks set in place by the streaming services. As technology improves, the providers are finding more ways to spot the workarounds, blocking more and more of the VPN and DNS services.

StreamLocator works a little smarter. Our unique hub communicates with the Netflix servers to find out the best way to bypass their blockades. Because it uses a combination of technologies, it can pick the best way to grant viewers access, and perform the operation automatically.

How to unblock South Korean Netflix

The StreamLocator hub makes accessing any Netflix region incredibly easy. All you have to do is plug it in, turn it on, and switch over any device to the newly available WiFi network STREAMLOCATOR. Go to the South Korean Netflix site, just as you normally would, and we’ll do the rest.

If your device doesn’t connect to the South Korean Netflix site straight away—don’t worry, we’ve thought of that too. Log into the StreamLocator portal and navigate to the Netflix regions. Choose South Korea from the dropdown menu on the streaming tab, and you’ll be granted the access you need.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch South Korean Netflix for free?

We’re afraid not. You’ll still need a Netflix subscription, but seeing as we’re going to open up every other country’s catalog, you’ll be getting better value from it than ever!
