What is Netflix, and how can I watch it?

If you haven’t heard of Netflix, where have you been for the past 20 years?

Netflix is one of the biggest TV and movie streaming services in the world. What many don’t know, however, is that it began its journey mailing out VHS video (and subsequently DVDs) as rentals. For a monthly fee, you could have a set number of movies (from a catalogue!) delivered to your door to watch over the following 30 days.

What it’s grown into, however, is an on-demand streaming video service available in over 190 countries, with a net income of over $1.8 billion.

Not only has this movie and TV giant led the way in how so many of us watch television, but it’s also a major player in the industry, producing its own award-winning content.

And Netflix isn’t just making television. It’s making great television. They’re setting standards for others to follow. Their programming is the must-see high-quality TV that automatically becomes the household names, and the in-thing, to discuss at work or on social media.

Netflix Originals include Tiger KingMindhunterStranger Things and Orange Is The New Black. If you haven’t watched—or even heard of—any of those, well, it’s time you did.

With around 6,000 titles to choose from and some of the best shows and movies you can find, all at your fingertips, it’s easy to see why Netflix is one of the most prominent players in the industry.

How can I watch US Netflix outside of the USA with StreamLocator?

Using a StreamLocator router is the easiest and most reliable way to make Netflix think you’re in the USA and allow you to watch all of the great shows and movies only available if you’re in America.

It uses some really clever tech to switch your actual location and appear as though you’re in one of the US territories required to access the Netflix content you want.

It just works: No complicated settings or software installation required

Unlike many other methods, particularly VPN services, there isn’t any software to install on your devices, there are no complicated settings to apply and it always works. Our router is always on and ready to perform.

It works with every one of your computers and devices too. That includes Apple and Android smartphones, Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire TV. If you access the Internet for gaming or browsing using your console, it’s got those covered too.

It’s accessible (just like your usual WiFi network) from anywhere in the house, and you can connect as many devices as you want. Each device can access a different service in a different country—so there are no limitations on your whole family’s viewing pleasure.

Our intelligent router comes with your StreamLocator subscription. It works with all existing WiFi routers, and it doesn’t affect your network speeds or any of your online activities. StreamLocator sits in the background waiting to be used, and when it does its job, you won’t even notice.

How to watch US Netflix from outside the USA

Netflix uses geolocation technology to find out where you are and then connects you to the appropriate service for your country. However, some programs are only available in certain regions, and why shouldn’t you get to watch those too?

VPN and Smart DNS are the most typical ways to change our digital location and access geo-blocked viewing. If you want to watch Netflix in the US instead of the option for your country, you’ll need to provide an alternative virtual location.

How to register for US Netflix from outside the USA

The beauty of the StreamLocator system is that you can use any Netflix account to access the content in the USA—and there aren’t many countries that don’t have Netflix. Once you’ve switched the StreamLocator location to the US, logging in is just as easy as it is for your own country’s content.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch US Netflix from outside the USA?

As discussed, the most typical way to provide a false location to unblock US Netflix is to use VPN or DNS masking or switching tech. They provide methods to circumnavigate the geolocation blockers that redirect your US Netflix DNS.

Depending on which platform you access, one method might work better for a particular service, yet then be blocked by another.

We’re not saying that these aren’t useful tools, only that they have their limitations. That’s where StreamLocator is different.

Our clever router box uses a combination of technologies, so it always provides the best option for the service it’s connecting to. All of the communication takes place without you even knowing and without you having to lift a finger. How efficient is that?

How to unblock US Netflix

If you need to know how to unlock Netflix on a Smart TV, PC, or any other device, unblocking any of the Netflix regions is child’s play with StreamLocator. Make sure your router is plugged in and turned on, switch to the StreamLocator WiFi network, and that’s that.

On the off-chance that your device doesn’t connect to the US Netflix straight away, you can dictate your streaming location using our router panel. Once you’ve logged in, select United States from the Netflix dropdown under the streaming tab, to ensure your access.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch US Netflix for free?

As long as you already hold a valid Netflix account—in any country—then you can watch the US Netflix content at no extra charge. If you don’t have a Netflix account, then you’ll have to subscribe as you normally would.
