How to Watch Netflix Outside the US on an Android

The wait is over. The Netflix app for Android has arrived. The only issue is that it is only for the US citizens or in simple words if you are residing outside the US you can not access Netflix through this app. Each time you try to access Netflix they will look at your IP to be sure of your location. In order to gain access to Netflix on our android Device we need to get a US IP address so that we are able to access the content outside the US.

The right way to get US IP is to use a VPN connection. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and is a secure and safe way of connecting to the Internet. Basically it connects you to a server in the United States which will behave as the middle man among you and the Netflix server. This  technique makes Netflix to think that you are in the US and in this way you can access the content on the website  – quite simple. Therefore for those who reside in the Europe, Asia, ,Canada, Australia, South America or somewhere else outside the US then this is the strategy to be used.

As every Android phone is known for a different interface it is not easy to explain all of them in a single tutorial.But most of the times you are likely to go to Network Settings > VPN settings > Add PPTP VPN and next complete the info which you will recieve on your email in order to signup. Remember to connect with VPN prior to opening the Netflix app and then you are good to go. Just sit back and enjoy the contents on  Netflix website even outside the US.
