How to Change Netflix Region to US or Any Country

Netflix users around the world pay almost the same subscription fee, but do not get access to the same content. This is why it is important to change Netflix region to US or any other country if you want to access additional content and derive more value from your subscription.

How to Change Your Netflix Region

Here is a step by step guide for doing just that.

  • Sign up for PureVPN
  • Get PureVPN for your device
  • Log in with your user name and password
  • Hit connect and select Netflix US from Popular websites

Netflix US has the best content, we have already established that, but what if a Netflix user is interested in content from a specific region? Imagine that you have to move to Spain next year, so you plan on learning Español before you go. A good way to do this is to watch content that is preferably produced in or is at least dubbed in Español.

One way to do this is to specifically search for content that has been produced for the Spanish market. But the easier way to do so would be to change your virtual location to Spain with PureVPN.

Just connect to PureVPN, and connect to Spain server. Once the connection is made successfully, your device will be assigned a new pseudo IP address, one that is based in Spain. This enables you to trick the Netflix server into believing that you are actually located in Spain, and offer you content suggestions on your home feed that is produced and targeted for Spain. With this simple trick, you can access Netflix’s unavailable movies and TV shows instantly.

Every Country Has Its Own Netflix Library

Content on Netflix varies according to regions. A TV show which is available in the US might be not available in Europe. An example is of Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal. It is a very popular show in the US but is unavailable for access on Netflix in Europe.

The first country where Netflix debuted its streaming service was the US. After that, it moved to the UK and Canada, and then it moved on to other countries. Each country has its own content library, and naturally, the content varies with each country.

Netflix US Library Has the Best Content

Netflix US Library

Obviously, Netflix’s US library is the best when it comes to providing the best content. There are 2 reasons why Netflix US is so good at providing diverse binge-watching options.

For starters, Netflix US was the first content library that was established by Netflix, so naturally, it has more content. Secondly, the US has the most lenient broadcast laws that enable content producers to visualize on topics that are deemed controversial in many other regions. Consequently, such content gets banned in most regions but remains available in Netflix US library.

If you are a hardcore streamer who is looking for Netflix unavailable movies and TV shows, then Netflix US should be your go-to content library.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which country versions of Netflix are available?

It’s easier to list down the countries where Netflix is not available. That’s Russia, Syria, China and North korea. Apart from that, the streaming service is used by millions of users across the globe.

For every country that it operates in, Netflix has a different range of TV shows and movies for users. This means that the TV shows you can access from the US, (or by connecting to a US server,) will not be accessible when you are outside the US. If one was to list down all the different versions of Netflix libraries, they would be as many as the countries Netflix operates in.  

Does Netflix change depending on where you are?

Based on your IP address, Netflix servers determine your location and route your connection to a relevant server. For instance, if you are in the US and you are accessing Netflix, your IP address will reveal your location and you will be redirected to the Netflix US library automatically. However, when you travel and connect to other networks in other countries, your new IP address will reveal your new location to the Netflix servers, causing your connection to route to the library that’s specific to your current region.

Changed region but still getting a Netflix proxy error?

Have you ensured that you are connected to PureVPN? Other VPN providers and free proxies do not give you access to Netflix US. This is because they are not totally safe and anonymous, and leak your real identity and location to netflix, which is streamers cant access PureVPN.

If you are connected to PureVPN, and you still cant access it, ensure that you have connected to the right server. The best way to access Netflix US via PureVPN is by selecting “US Netflix” from popular websites when connecting.
