Unblock Netflix Catalogue in Different Countries

Netflix’s content libraries are restricted by national borders. It can only host shows and movies in territories where it owns the rights — that’s why your subscription gets you Star Trek: Discovery in Canada, but not the U.S. Libraries can vary wildly: Slovakia has the most titles at 7,436, while the U.S. (which is far from the smallest) only offers 5,831.

If you want to experience the bounty that is Slovakian Netflix, you can use a VPN to mask your real IP address with one that makes it look like you’re connecting from within Slovakia. With the right VPN, it’s not hard to pull off. We’ve got Privacy Journal articles to walk you through every step of the process.

Netflix VPN Not Working? Troubleshooting Guides and Error Codes

Is your Netflix VPN not working? Choosing the right VPN is critical, since not every service on the market is capable of unblocking Netflix. Like other streaming platforms, Netflix tries to clamp down on VPN users to save itself from copyright viability (though streaming with a VPN is completely legal). Here are a few troubleshooting guides to get you started:

About Netflix

Netflix is practically synonymous with instant streaming video. If you told someone 15 years ago that the company that mailed DVDs was poised to turn the entertainment industry completely on its head, they’d have laughed you out of the room. Yet here we are in 2022, with a Silicon Valley tech company regularly winning Oscars and Emmys.

Since it began direct streaming in 2007, Netflix has grown meteorically, with tens of millions of viewers streaming hundreds of shows. In 2018, about 15% of all servers on the world wide web were at least partially involved in powering Netflix. According to our napkin math, about 45 million people on Earth are watching Netflix at any given moment of the day.

How did Netflix become so important to the world’s entertainment? Partly through convenience, and partly through hosting the best content. Since breaking into original programming with House of Cards, it’s produced a steady stream of hits, from The Crown and Making a Murderer to Bojack Horseman and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Today, despite the loss of a lot of its best-known content (especially Jessica Jones and the other Marvel shows that jumped ship to Disney+), Netflix continues to put out hits, with recent seasons of Stranger Things and Cobra Kai winning critical acclaim.

So, whether popularity or quality, there’s no shortage of reasons you’d want to enjoy Netflix. But what is “unblocking,” and why do you need a VPN for it?

That’s why streaming performance is one of the areas we focus on when reviewing any VPN. We can’t recommend a service that doesn’t get past the Netflix proxy error and offer great video streaming quality anywhere in the world.
