Netflix Instant By Country Showdown #7: Tom Cruise

Netflix Comparison by Country - US, UK, Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Canada

Updated: July 2016

With yet another successful entry in the Mission: Impossible series come and gone, we thought it was time to put all-American action star Tom Cruise through one of our famous Netflix Instant By Country Showdowns, where we take a movie star or theme and determine which country’s version of Netflix Instant features the most content from that star or theme. In the past, our Netflix Showdowns have covered Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, the many faces of Johnny Depp, the unique career of Scarlett Johansson, and even the ever popular Marvel/DC Comic movies.

And the Winner Is…

Japan has only had Netflix for a short time, and they came right in and ran the table with 18 Tom Cruise movies! Not only do they have the first four Mission: Impossible movies, but they’re the only country with Eyes Wide Shut, and one of the only ones with Top Gun. So it goes without saying, but Japan is the place to be if you’re a Tom Cruise movie fan.

On the losing end, the US and Sweden finished in dead last with merely three Tom Cruise movies. And if you’re looking for the most recent Mission: Impossible movie (that’d be Rogue Nation), head north to our friends in Canada.

How to Watch Your Favorite Tom Cruise Movies from Anywhere

The purpose of these showdowns is twofold: firstly, it demonstrates that no one country’s Netflix Instant is ideal for a serious Tom Cruise fan, and secondly, to let you know that you can stream every single one of these movies if you know the right moves.

What you need to unblock Netflix is a VPN service. VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, will allow you the latitude to bypass geographical web restrictions and access the Netflix Instant of whatever country you choose.

(This is all in addition to the online security that VPNs provide, which is truly invaluable and necessary in this day and age, but that’s for another time.)

When you log into your VPN, all of your online information is tunneled through encrypted servers set up all over the world. This means that if you’re in America and wanting to watch Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, all you have to do is log in to your VPN, pick a server in New Zealand or Argentina or Colombia or Brazil or the UK (etc.), and your internet-capable device will be assigned an IP address in one of those countries.

At that point, you’ll have access to Netflix Instant in the country you’ve chosen, and you’re on your way. You can log out of your VPN and be able to watch Top Gun whenever you’d like as well.

Best VPNs for Netflix Instant Location Changing

Take a look at our official supported VPN service provider list to get a sense of just how many top-notch VPNs we endorse. In the meantime, here’s a more manageable list for the heavy-streaming Tom Cruise fan:

  2. HideMyAss – Most IP Addresses in the Netflix countries listed.
  3. IPVanish – Most servers in Brazil for all of those Mission: Impossible movies.
  4. PureVPN – A server in each of these Netflix covered plus virtual US & UK servers via Brazil for top speeds and top Tom Cruise access.

Best FlashRouters for Netflix Instant

The most important thing to remember, if you’re looking for the best possible Tom Cruise/Netflix Instant streaming experience, is that you’ll need one of our DD-WRT and Tomato routers.

If you want a router that offers speed, power, and unmatched functionality, then it’s a FlashRouter you want. Not only can we set up your VPN on your new FlashRouter for you (provided your VPN appears on our official supported provider list), but our devices allow you to control how your bandwidth is allocated. Believe us, if you’re going to be streaming a lot of Tom Cruise movies on Netflix Instant from all around the world, you’ll want to prioritize that.

Check out our best DD-WRT routers of 2015 if you’d like to get a good idea of which FlashRouters are the most popular among our users and around the office. If you’d like some quick suggestions about which FlashRouters are particularly suited for Netflix Instant VPN use, then look no further:
