Now that Netflix has launched their service in Latin American, people are starting to notice that the Latin American content is very different from the content available in the US version. Although you can now log in with your Netflix account in any country that has Netflix you will only have access to the content made available in the region where you are located. However you can get access to the US version with the entire premium content from anywhere in the world with a little trickery.
See Netflix will determine your location by observing your IP address and serve up the content accordingly, or flat out deny you if you are trying to access from a country where Netflix is not available. So what you need to do is get an American IP address. You do this by logging on to a Virtual Private Network also know as VPN. This will allow you to hide behind a server in the US tricking Netflix into thinking that is your actual location and then serving up the content from the US version. It is that simple.
Since Netflix requires more bandwidth than the usual browsing you will need to sign up with a VPN provider capable of delivering the bandwidth needed for good image quality. Personally I have had the best results with Hide My Ass VPN and the setup is much easier compared to the other providers I tested. Simply install the app for either Mac or PC, select where in the US you want to hide and then click connect. That is all there is to and you will now have access to all the US content when loading up the Netflix app or site once again.
You get access to manual settings for your iPad, iPhone and Android phone as well so you are covered all around. The method works from all the Latin American countries that got access to Netflix recently such as: Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico and many more. If you don’t already have a Netflix account you can sign up for one here – unless you live in a country where Netflix not yet launched. Then you need to connect with VPN and create an account first.
