We’ve spent a lot of time on this blog helping you stay in touch with your Netflix Instant queue. We know that many of you spend a great deal of time outside of the USA, whether on vacation or on business, and there are still huge swaths of this planet that have zero access to Netflix (like Asia and Australia, to name but two continents), so we’re happy to help out in any way we can.
But even if you’re outside the USA and in a country with access to Netflix, such as Brazil, your Netflix experience will be vastly different. Netflix USA and Netflix South America are geared towards unique demographics, and if you’re an American in Rio looking to watch some Netflix USA, you may find yourself stymied by a lack of familiar options in movies and TV shows. Maybe you have to travel or even relocate for business to up-and-coming business hubs like Brazil, Chile, or Argentina, and you won’t have access to popular American shows like Louie, The Walking Dead, or The West Wing, or great movies like Cabin in the Woods, Captain America: The First Avenger, or Rosemary’s Baby.
Fortunately for you, FlashRouters is here to help. The DD-WRT & Tomato routers solution we offer may be the same one we always offer, but that’s because it works. Read on to find out how to stay in touch with Netflix USA whether you’re in Buenos Aires, Argentina or Montevideo, Uruguay!
How to Watch Netflix USA in South America
Again, we know we’re repeating ourselves, but VPN, VPN, VPN. It always comes down to subscribing to a VPN.
A VPN provider, or Virtual Private Network, is a subscription-based service, the purpose of which is to keep your online identity secure. By logging in to a VPN, your data flow in tunneled through secure servers that VPN services have set up all over the world!
But you might be wondering: what does this have to do with me accessing and unblocking Netflix US? Glad you asked. One of the other benefits of logging in to a VPN is that when you tunnel your information through secure servers in another country, you also mask you location and your IP address to one located in that country. This effectively tricks your laptop or portable device into thinking it’s in a country that it isn’t in or unblocking it, allowing you to access geo-restricted media streaming services and content no matter where you are.
So if you’re in Brazil or Argentina, and you want to unblock your Instant Netflix US account, all you have to do is log in to your VPN provider, choose an American-based server, and you’re all set! You will be unblocked from access to US or UK streaming video services like Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, 4oD, Amazon Instant almost instantly. Your laptop, Rokus, and SmartTVs will be convinced they’re sitting in New York or London while you sit across the world. Now enjoy all of the USA-geared Netflix programming your heart desires.
Popular South American VPN providers in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia for US IP addresses include Overplay VPN, HideMyAss VPN, Strong VPN, IPVanish VPN, and PrivateInternetAccess VPN. FlashRouters also offers a new VPN provider comparison list to help you find the VPN that best suits your needs.
