Looking for a way to access the UK version of Netflix from outside the UK then look no further.
The content available when you log into Netflix in determined by where you are located when you log in. So if you are an American with a Netflix account and log into Netflix while in the UK you will get the UK content and vice versa. So what you need to do is fake your location in order to get the UK content. This trick also works if you live in a country where Netflix is not yet available.
So to either sign up for Netflix or stream UK content with an existing Netflix account you need to fake your location, and have Netflix believe that you are located in the UK. The way to do this is by connecting to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) with a server located in the UK. This way Netflix will think you are connecting to the site from within the UK and allow you to stream away.
The best VPN for this setup is Hide My Ass VPN as they have several strong servers located in the UK capable of providing the bandwidth needed for video streaming. Simply install the app on either your Mac or PC and then select a server in the UK and click connect. Now you can either sign up for a Netflix account if you don’t already have one or simply log in with you existing account and stream away as if you were located in the UK.
The UK version of Netflix has struck a deal with amongst others BBC making series such as “Fawlty Towers” available to UK Netflix viewers. So if you are a UK expat abroad this is a great way to stay connected to some familiar entertainment.
