What is Netflix, and how can I watch it?
If you haven’t heard of Netflix, then you probably shouldn’t be looking for a way to watch TV in other countries, when there’s so much untapped viewing for you right where you are! (Unless, of course, you’re a pure sports fan looking for ways to watch all the games, matches and fights you can’t access in your country).
Netflix is possibly the biggest name in streaming TV and movies in the world. There aren’t many countries who don’t have access to their shows, but part of its magic, and just as often an issue, is that every country has its own unique catalogue of shows.
Yes, there are plenty of crossovers when it comes to mainstream Western and European viewing, but when it comes to somewhere like Japan, the catalogue of shows on offer is radically different from Netflix’s usual offerings.
Nowhere else in the world can you access shows such as Ahiru no Sora, Hangman’s Knot, or Grand Blue—and there are so many more. For viewers who love the culture behind those Japanese shows and movies, that seems a little unfair.
If that sounds like you, well, your problems are over. You’re in exactly the right place to receive unlimited access to all the Japanese shows and movies in the Netflix Japan catalogue.
How can I watch Japanese Netflix with StreamLocator?
The StreamLocator smart hub supplies Netflix with a virtual Japanese location, so it thinks you’re in the same country as their servers.
By disguising your actual location, you can log into your existing Netflix account to access all the previously geographically-blocked shows you can handle.
No complicated settings or software installation required
The beauty of StreamLocator is that it’s one of the simplest solutions to geo-blocking on the market. There isn’t any software that you need to download to any of your devices. Neither are there any complicated DNS settings to meddle with. StreamLocator is a plug and play system designed to make accessing the channels you really want to watch as simple as possible.
Because it works with your router, every device you use to connect to the Internet is automatically covered. That’s right—everything from your Apple and Android smartphones and tablets to your Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast. It even covers your Smart TVs and games consoles.
It’s always on and works with all WiFi routers. Another advantage is that you can make as many connections as you like—there’s no limit to how many devices you connect or how many different countries you connect to at any given time.
It’s so good at what it does—you won’t even notice it’s doing it.
How to watch Japanese Netflix from outside Japan
Netflix, just like almost all TV and movie streaming services, uses geo-location technology to pinpoint where its viewers are, and block those outside the restrictions of their licencing agreements.
If you wanted to watch the shows from another country or region, you’d need a VPN or Smart DNS service to create a new virtual location. Now, StreamLocator can provide you with an alternative location too—only we do it better.
How to register for Japanese Netflix from outside Japan
The beauty of Netflix’s current system is that if you’re on holiday, they’ll allow you to connect to the catalogue of whatever country you’re visiting, using your existing account. So, if you can change the location they see from wherever you are, you don’t need any special logins to watch their shows.
Paying for your Netflix account is just as easy as it always was, but now, you can access every catalogue they offer throughout the world.
Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch US Netflix from outside Japan?
VPN and Smart DNS have been the typical ways to access foreign viewing for quite some time. Yet, TV providers are cracking down on these systems, making it harder to find a reliable service that accesses all of the shows, all of the time.
You’d like to think that some of the biggest and best-known services would always be able to grant you the access you need, but due to their popularity, these are often the services the streaming services are making a beeline for.
Where StreamLocator is different is it doesn’t use a single technology but a selection of workarounds. When our smart hub connects to the Netflix servers, it finds out the best possible way of getting around their geo-blocks and carries the process out automatically; granting you all of the access, all of the time.
How to unblock Japanese Netflix
As we said, accessing international viewing is simple with StreamLocator. We’ve done our best to provide our customers with the easy-access system they always wanted.
Our unique smart hub plugs directly into any of the open ports on your WiFi router. Once it’s in place and switched on, there are a few simple steps to activate your account, and that’s pretty much it.
You’ll find a new option in your WiFi list—STREAMLOCATOR. Switch any device you plan to use over to this new connection, and we’ll take care of the rest.
If the connection to Netflix Japan doesn’t happen straight away, you can manually override your Netflix location using the StreamLocator portal. Head to the streaming tab and select Japan from the dropdown list. It’s that easy.
Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Japanese Netflix for free?
It’s nothing to do with StreamLocator, but Netflix allows you to watch the Japanese catalogue using your existing Netflix account, so at least you’re not paying out for an additional login.
You will need a Netflix account, though. If you don’t already have one, you will have to start paying for one.
