Everybody loves Netflix. They have such a wide variety of movies and TV shows, that you can spend hours trying to figure out what to watch. What you might not know, is that Netflix has different regions, depending on which country you are currently in. In order to fully take advantage of all of the shows and movies Netflix offers, it is best to be in the American region of Netflix. If you are not located in the US, keep reading. In this article, you will learn how to use a primary DNS to watch Netflix USA and ignore those pesky country restrictions.
Create your very own VPN account
By creating a VPN account, you can choose which server you want to connect to, and the country it is located in. This easy option also enables you to use it on your iPad and iPhone, making it very convenient to use Netflix USA. One of the most commonly used VPN sites is HideMyAss Pro, but there are plenty more out there. Do some research in order to find the one that would fit your needs best. These VPN providers charge anywhere from $6 per month, to $25 per month, so choose carefully.
No VPN? No problem!
If you do not want to create a VPN account in order to watch Netflix USA, don’t worry, there are still other options for you. Here, you can update the DNS server that is on the router. If you are wondering, what is a DNS server, it is very simple. A DNS server is a computer that is registered under the Domain Name System. This means the server has a special IP address, which prevents you from using the Netflix USA version when not in the US.
The good thing is, that just like the VPN account, all of the devices you use to watch Netflix will work properly. We recommend using Unlocator, which works wonderfully when trying to hide your location. They have over 170 channels which you can unblock and visit anywhere in the world. They offer a 7 day free trial, and after that, they charge $5 per month. This service is very easy to use, and with their wide variety, their DNS services are fantastic.
How about an extension instead?
Another easy way to watch Netflix USA anywhere in the world, is to use Media Hint. It has less channels that Unlocator, and it costs around $3 per month. It is different from Unlocator, because Media Hint does not change the DNS you are using. Media Hint creates an extension on your browser, not change your DNS. The only bad thing about Media Hint, is that is requests permission to enjoy data on every site visited. Plenty of extensions do this, but still, a word of caution.
So, what have we learned about these DNS tools? You can have access to Netflix from any region, not just the US version, anywhere in the world. In order to do this, you will have to have either a VPN account, change the DNS server you are using, or create an extension for it. One of the most commonly used VPN sites is HideMyAss, but feel free to use any site you choose. With a VPN, you have the option of jumping from one server to another.
You can also use Unlocator, which will hide the DNS server you are using. This will allow you access to any of their 170 channels, on any of your devices.
Lastly, we have Media Hint. This extension works similarly to Unlocator, but you don’t change your server. You also have access to less channels, but it costs less. Whatever you choose, you can easily enjoy Netflix USA anywhere in the world. The only question is, what will you watch first?
