Netflix Instant By Country Showdown #8: Tom Hanks

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

Updated: March 2016

There are few issues about which the US is in lock-step agreement, but one of them is the overwhelming nature of Tom Hanks’ everyman charm. He’s a genial interviewee, a modest megastar, and a supremely talented actor to boot.

Ever since winning consecutive Best Actor Oscars for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, Hanks has held an unchallenged position on the A-list. He’s only bolstered that position by appearing in one beloved film after another: movies like Apollo 13Saving Private Ryan, and the recent Captain Phillips.

And he’s nowhere near done yet. This coming October, we’ll be treated to a Hanks/Steven Spielberg reunion when Bridge of Spies hits theaters nationwide. Something tells us you can look forward to a Steven Spielberg Netflix showdown in the near future as well.

In the meantime, let us inaugurate Tom Hanks into the hallowed halls thus far occupied by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer LawrenceDenzel Washington, etc. Let’s see which country’s Netflix Instant has the most Tom Hanks movies!

On the other end, we have Canada, which finished last with a dismal 6 Tom Hanks movies. And despite Tom Hanks’ much-vaunted all-American charm, we here in the states are only given 7 Tom Hanks movies to stream in his home country, and only one of those qualify as Hanks classics (Forrest Gump). But that’s no big deal, because…

Streaming Tom Hanks Movies From Anywhere

If the Tom Hanks movie is on Netflix Instant anywhere in the world, you can watch it, provided you’re subscribed to a VPN.

The purpose of a VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is to secure your online data by tunneling your information through encrypted servers set up all over the world anytime you log in. In that regard, VPNs are truly necessary and invaluable, but VPNs are also incredibly useful for those of us who wish to bypass arbitrary geographical web restrictions.

As we’ve demonstrated above, Netflix Instant’s libraries change dramatically from country to country, and with a VPN, you can explore them all. All you have to do is log in to your VPN, choose a server in the country with the Netflix Instant you want to see, and you’re ready!
