How to Watch Netflix in Germany

Flag of Germany

Netflix is an online movie streaming service that is primarily available in the US. Although, they have launched clone versions in the Caribbean, Latin America, Canada, and UK, most of the users are unsatisfied with these versions of Netflix. Maybe Netflix will start their service in Germany someday, but it’s sure that you’ll not get the original US Netflix in Germany. Due to the licensing agreements with the American film industries, Netflix does not expose American local movies and TV shows outside the US. Don’t be disappointed; we’ll show you a simple trick to watch US version of Netflix in Germany.

A trick to watch Netflix in Germany

When you try to watch Netflix in Germany, Netflix denies your access immediately by detecting your IP address. Therefore, all you need to watch Netflix in Germany is just a US IP address. However, it is almost impossible to change your IP address manually. The easiest way to change your IP address is by connecting to a Virtual Private Network (VPN). If you connect to a VPN server in the US, it will act as an intermediary between Netflix and your computer. So when Netflix will try to identify your location, they will find the location of your VPN server and allow you to watch US version of Netflix in Germany.

How to connect to a VPN server?

You have to contact a VPN provider in order to connect to a VPN server. Since video streaming requires an ample bandwidth, you should subscribe with a fast and reliable VPN provider. After trying quite a few VPN providers, we have found Hidemyass! Pro VPN – as the most suitable service for Netflix streaming. They provide very steady, reliable and fast VPN connections with unlimited bandwidth for video streaming. At present, they are offering a massive 30 days money back guarantee with all packages. However, you’ll get best discounts with 12 and 6 months subscriptions.

Setting up VPN

At first subscribe with a suitable package, then download and install Hidemyass for your PC or Mac, select a server in US from the list and click connect. That’s all there is to it; within a moment, you will be located inside the US and able to sign up and watch Netflix in Germany.

Signing up for Netflix in Germany

After connecting to a VPN server in Germany, start signing up for a new Netflix account with a fake US mailing address and any five-digit zip code. Although, they are offering one-month free trial you have to insert a US credit card info during the sign up for Payment verification. If you don’t have a US credit card, you can alternatively use Netflix gift cards. Search online to get a gift card, then complete your sign up with the card info and start streaming Netflix in Germany.

Happy Streaming!
