This is something very cool that I quite literally stumbled on by accident. If you have a Netflix Canada account (I mean really, it’s $8.. even if their movies suck, what I’m about to tell you is going to make it worth it!).. Anyway, as I was saying, if you have a Netflix Canada account, you can access the whole Netflix USA library.. and it’s not hard to do at all.
Simply install a VPN on your computer or iOS device (I use HotSpot Shield on my MacBook.. it’s free!!) All you do is turn on your VPN, then go to netflix.ca and sign in as you usually would with your Canadian login information. Netflix reads your IP address, and since your VPN is spoofing a US address, the netflix site thinks you are in USA, and allows you to access the US Netflix system.
I’ve done this with my computer, and I also tried it tonight with my iPhone, and it works great. I now have a whole new library of GOOD movies available to me!
If you need details for getting Hotspot Shield to work on your iPhone, as they’ve stopped supporting it, please click here
Try it out, and let me know if it works for you down in the comments!
NOTE: I thought this went without saying.. but you HAVE TO HAVE A NETFLIX CANADA ACCOUNT… you can’t just watch the movies for free, you need a Canada account in order for this to work.
