What is Netflix, and how can I watch it?

Long gone are the days of waiting until a program aired each week to catch up with the latest plotline and story. We live in a TV-on-demand world where we get to watch pretty much what we want, when we want, with no shortage of programs to choose from.

Netflix is one of the world leaders in the field and has been a significant part of the progression into how we watch television.

If you’d seen them at their humble beginnings, offering a mail-order VHS video-rental service, you might be surprised to see how well they’ve grown. With current operations in over 190 countries and a net income of over $1.8 billion, they’re one of the biggest and best providers in the market today.

That’s not all, though. They’ve also grown into one of the leading television producers and providers of the day. Much of their custom content has turned into award-winning viewing. It’s certainly the talk of the workplace and increasingly plastered all over social media.

Netflix makes great TV. Their shows and movies often break the boundaries of how we’re used to watching television and the ways we can do it. If you haven’t watched Stranger Things, Black Mirror, Tiger King or Peaky Blinders, then it’s about time you did.

There are over 6,000 titles available on Netflix. They include some of the best TV and movies you’ll ever see. It’s easy to see why we all love a dose of Netflix, and how it’s become another staple of our home entertainment.

How can I watch Netflix UK with StreamLocator?

Plug in your StreamLocator router, and it will make the Netflix servers think you’re in the United Kingdom.

With your location swapped over to the one they need, you’ll receive complete access to as much UK Netflix viewing as you want.

No complicated settings or software installation required

With other systems, you have to install all kinds of software onto your computers or devices or start adjusting and adding settings to your servers and DNS. Not with StreamLocator. Once set up, it’s ready to work with all of your devices, and it’s always ready for action.

It will integrate with your Apple and Android smartphones, your Mac or PC, and it also provides the same amazing workarounds for your Smart TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Apple TV. And if you’re a gamer? It’s got your Xbox, PS4 and Wii covered just the same.

It works off your existing home WiFi from anywhere in your home. It connects to as many devices as you need, and each one can access a different service in a different country without you adding settings or even knowing it's happening.

This clever bit of kit plugs straight into any open port of your WiFi router. It won’t affect your Internet speeds, nor will it affect any of your usual online activities. You won’t know it’s there—even when it’s doing its job.

How to watch UK Netflix from outside the United Kingdom

The way Netflix finds out where you are and switches you to your appropriate country’s service is called geolocation tracking or blocking. But what happens when you want to watch a program that’s only available on UK Netflix, and you’re in another country?

VPN and Smart DNS are services that help mask your location and allow you to appear as though you’re in another country. That’s the type of system you’re going to need to work around the geo-blockers.

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

How to register for UK Netflix from outside the United Kingdom

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 UK content.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch UK Netflix US from outside the United Kingdom?

You’ll need a VPN, Smart DNS or some other similar switching or relocation system to mask your location. These are the key ways to get around the geolocation blockers that Netflix uses to scupper your desire to watch their other countries’ viewing.

It’s often the case that one system is more effective than another, depending on the provider. The businesses involved are finding new ways to detect the most popular methods and bypass their data.

While each of the typical methods are ingenious systems, they aren’t without their flaws.

StreamLocator uses a combination of technologies, ensuring the best method is always used to grant the access you require. It’s the best of both worlds—and more.

How to unblock UK Netflix

Accessing UK Netflix with StreamLocator is as simple as plugging in and turning on. When you switch to the StreamLocator WiFi network instead of your usual option, our router takes care of all the hard work for you.

If for some reason, the UK Netflix doesn’t open straight away, then we’ve built in an additional failsafe to take care of that. Access the router panel and select the streaming tab. There, you can choose United Kingdom from the Netflix dropdown list, which ensures you’ll connect to precisely the service you require.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch UK Netflix for free?

We’re afraid not. As much as it would warm our hearts to provide all of your viewing for nothing, it’s out of our hands. However, with StreamLocator, you can use any Netflix account, wherever it was created, to access each alternative location.
